Overview

The Haunted House is a classic horror tale written by Charles Dickens. On Christmas Eve, a party of friends descends on a purportedly haunted country retreat, charged with the task of discovering evidence of the supernatural. Sequestered in their rooms for the holiday, the friends reconvene on Twelfth Night at a great feast and share their stories of spectral encounter. “Conducted” by Charles Dickens, The Haunted House examines quintessentially Victorian themes–sex and longing, nostalgia and loss–in ways that continue to resonate today. Ingeniously conceived and written, and spiked with flashes of Dickensian humor, this volume is a strange and sheer delight.

    Twist and turns a good read but short

    It was hard to adjust to the old English way of writing, but a good book.

    Dull

    This story turned out to be extremely dull. At first it seemed like a promising ghost story and then seemed to become someones experience in some islamic country of 150 years ago. It lost me very quickly and was just not impressed.

    Save your money.

    I have read all of Charles Dickens' books, enjoyed them and would read some of them again. This is not one of them, I truly had no idea he could write this badly.
