Thanks for reading The House Next Door with me

Thanks for spending the month of October reading The House Next Door with me. Overall, I really liked the characters and the setting and I believe it has stood the test of time pretty well. My only complaint is the epilogue, which really struck a false note with the point of view shift and a truly unnecessary final scene. The effect reminded me of that same final, tacked-on ending in Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto.

If you would like to read more stories about  haunted houses, try:
