Descrizione

At Butler House, a series of grisly murders over a century have lead many to believe it's haunted. To one scientist, it's the perfect place for an experiment in fear. Eight people, each chosen because they lived through a terrifying experience, are offered a million dollars to spend one night at Butler House. They can take whatever they want with them—religious items, survival gear, and weapons. All they need to do is last the night.

But there is something evil in this house. Something very evil . . . and very real. And when the dying starts, it comes with horrifying violence and brutal finality. There are much scarier things than ghosts. Things that will kill you slowly and delight in your screams. Things that won't let you get out alive.

    A little too graphic for my taste.

    If you give it a real try, this turns into a good book. It was a little slow until about halfway through, but I quite enjoyed the story.
    Don’t let the narrator’s semi-monotone voice put you to sleep. I’ve listened to plenty more audiobooks with better, more animated narrators, but he gets the job done.

    Needs to be a movie.... kinda obscure but the best of both worlds action and horror

    JA Konrath is my absolute favorite horror/thriller author. I can’t put his booked down!

    I couldn’t get past the lunatic masturbating with his own blood while mutilating himself. I was looking for something a little more about haunted houses and a little less masturbation however, if that’s what you are into then this is the book for you! That was just the first few weeks paragraphs just FYI.

    It’s not a badly written story. It’s really not. But the story itself is what it is, a lot of cheap thrills with no real plot.

    Not bad but a little fast moving. Some characters need not building up. A little confusing at times on who is who.

    It was a pretty solid book. Definitely kept me wondering.

    I thought it would be hokey when I saw the title. The characters were so good; it was worth the read. Wanted more than the ending provided.

    Ok, here go's. the short chapters for each off the characters made the book feel kind of like I was channel surfing, it was choppy and by the time I got back to a character I didn't really care what was about to happen to him or her anymore. most of the time I forgot who was doing what and I didn't figure it out until it switched back to a difren't person. over half of the book was getting the characters to the house, then about 30% was cheap jump out and scare you type thrills in which everyone is completely terrified but around 80% in the cop figures everything out because of some obscure thing that a secondary character says. it makes no sense to me at all and the bad guy had to explain everything to us, then all of a sudden for some reason the characters that have been completely terrified the entire book all decide they are no longer scared and start fighting back at the same time with no interaction between each other or reason to quit being scarred. the entire story is full of holes like the fact that the stuff that the bad guy is extracting from their blood had to be removed with a machine that is hooked up to you while you are scared yet no one is hooked up except for the cop after he figures it out, or the couple who figure out the ghosts are fake but then they run into the other family on their way out and apparently forgot that they are not ghosts until they figure it out again later. the entire book is full of typos and wrong words used, it is worse than a lot of the never heard of authors I have downloaded freebies from in the past. some of konrath attempts at humor made me chuckle and other stuff was completely retarded like the monkey riding on a dog with a tiny gun racing to the rescue. even the fact that he tried to add some humor is a huge disappointment because it is suposed to be a kilborn novel and none of those up to this one had any humor, they where dark, violent, and scary with no comic relief. that's what I expected of this one as well. this is the first review that has ever made me wish goodreads did half stars because this one didn't even deserve one star.

    This can be read as part of the Afraid series or alone. All of the main characters have back stories which are explained in more depth in previous books and well enough for the purposes of the Haunted House story.The characters are gathered at the Butler House to take part in a fear experiment. Once they arrive, strange events begin to happen. Is it real or imagined and will they survive?A few typos along with page and paragraph spacing issues cause minor distractions especially early on in the book.The writing is vivid and if the reader allows it, creepy. The characters are likeable if not fully developed in this story.Throughout the tale, there is a sense of foreboding. The authors do a great job with their descriptions both of places and of events.Overall, a fast paced thrilling read!

    In Kilborn’s horror novel, eight people, each with a terrifying experience in their past, will enter into an experiment in fear. These survivors don’t frighten easily and they are capable of fighting back when necessary. Each is paid one million dollars to spend a night in the old Butler House—a supposedly haunted house where grisly murders were committed years ago.They are allowed to take whatever they want with them as long as they stay the entire night. But real evil dwells within the walls, and when the dying begins it happens violently. There are things more frightening than ghosts living there and they thrive on the terrified screams of their victims.A well told frightening tale that I couldn’t read in the dark.

    I enjoyed this book; each scene was labelled with a character’s name and location instead of different chapters. My favorite lines: 1) “Fear of the unexpected. Also known as dread.” 2) “I work for a newspaper. We newsies know all the lowlifes.” 3) “Depending on your past, one man’s paranoia was another man’s common sense.” 4) Funny how she routinely contemplated suicide, yet now that her life might actually be threatened she wanted the gun for protection.I loved the flow of the author’s writing style–the pacing of the sentences moved smoothly. I’m a huge fan of the fast paced, action packed, short clipped sentences. I was confused why some character’s dialogue was all italics while some weren’t. But the author did a great job of characterization; it was easy for me to keep track of everyone involved in the story. This was the first novel I’ve read of Jack Kilborn, and I would try another.I was expecting the story to start off at the Butler House, but that didn’t happen until way later in the book. I wasn’t expecting it to take that long to get to the juicy, scary parts but it wasn’t the end of the world that I had to wait. The characters’ interactions with each other (strangers meeting for the first time) was interesting.Once the hauntings started happening, chills ran down my spine. The descriptions of the ghosts and the way they tortured people were very vivid. I could picture it in my head like a movie. However, there’s a twist. Is the place even really haunted? You’ll have to read the book to find out.I RECOMMEND this book to read.
