Overview

The Good House by Tananarive Due

The home that belonged to Angela Toussaint's late grandmother is so beloved that townspeople in Sacajawea, Washington, call it the Good House. But that all changes one summer when an unexpected tragedy takes place behind its closed doors...and the Toussaint's family history — and future — is dramatically transformed.
Angela has not returned to the Good House since her son, Corey, died there two years ago. But now, Angela is finally ready to return to her hometown and go beyond the grave to unearth the truth about Corey's death. Could it be related to a terrifying entity Angela's grandmother battled seven decades ago? And what about the other senseless calamities that Sacajawea has seen in recent years? Has Angela's grandmother, an African American woman reputed to have "powers," put a curse on the entire community?
A thrilling exploration of secrets, lies, and divine inspiration, The Good House will haunt readers long after its chilling conclusion.

This is the first book I've read from Ms. Due that I've read and I must say that it is wonderful. I couldn't put it down(except when I was in the basement and had to stop because I was alone!) I highly reccommend this to anyone.

Maybe it's because i haven't ever read a single book that has had me scared....and this book was no different. With that said, this book was ok. Not the hyped up reviews good. To me it wasn't worth the money. I only finished it because i payed for it. Gurss i wont be relying on others reviews ehen choosing a new author or book.

The book was slow and as the reader I did not feel connected to the characters. There was nothing about the characters that drew the reader in such that the reader would want to know what happened to them. This book did not make me want to read other books by the author. I was disappointed.

I'm not a person who scares easily but at times I had to put the book down due to the creepy feeling that came over me at times. I HIGHLY recommend reading this book. It's a shame that two of the reviewers above chose to give away important information. I mean was it truly necessary to pratically write an essay about this book?

I don't really read 'horror' stories...This book was an exception...Having read her previous books, I thought I'd give this a shot...I'm glad I did...I listened to this book on audio cd and I found it extremely entertaining...And the ending was just fine...I hope Angela and Myles had their happily ever after...

This was my second book from the author and like the 1st, I enjoyed it. I did not expect all the thrills, chills and emotions that came from this book. I have never read anything that took me where the author does in this book. The characters were outstanding and the storyline mysterious. The author will pull some emotions from you on this one. Fabulous read!!!
