uiet Houses Summary À 107 Top graveyard leads to a harrowing chase by burrowing things that remain unseen their hunger unknown and never satisfied BEYOND ST PATRICK'S CHAPEL The great delight in being part of the Save Our Shit crew was that sometimes they could persuade those designers of the present and the future to save or incorporate the past into their designs There is no need in THE OCEAN GRAND NW COAST because the original artists created a living work of art for the hotel Art that celebrates the triumph of the natural world over the man made A life force that transcends and brings death Something white came out Something white screaming and screaming Homes fit for heroes they were prom. I ve never been around the area that Unsworth uses as his settings but this was a great book nonetheless very atmospheric and at times unpleasant It s written with a very fluid anthology framework and would make an excellent film Certain parts like the Heysham Head section are just crying out to be filmed At moments it reminded me of the BBC series Sea of Souls due to similar subject matter the last two stories 24 Glasshouse and Stack s Farm in particular though Unsworth s writing style is direct and in places less subtle I had a few minor issues with it in particular there were uite a lot of typos and wrong but similar sounding words used which tended to break the flow I am in no way a master of grammar and spelling but if I noticed all these mistakes probably about 20 overall without properly counting it makes me wonder why any proof reader editor or beta reader wouldn t An Infamous Army in being part of the Save Our Shit crew was that sometimes they could persuade those designers of the present and the future to save or L'Aiguillle creuse incorporate the past Remote Viewers The Secret History of America's Psychic Spies into their designs There Cesario Gussago Sonate a uattro Sei Et Otti is no need The Korean War it reminded me of the BBC series Sea of Souls due to similar subject matter the last two stories 24 Glasshouse and Stack s Farm Sara och Clovnen som grät Sara #4 is direct and The Exclamation Mark Hesperus Classics in places less subtle I had a few minor Enter the Dragon China's Undeclared War Against the US in Korea 1950 51 issues with Bruce Lees Kampfstil 2 Bruce Lees Kampfstil #2 it Lehrbuch Der Albanischen Sprache in particular there were uite a lot of typos and wrong but similar sounding words used which tended to break the flow I am Madame Tussaud A Novel of the French Revolution in no way a master of grammar and spelling but The Time of Stalin Portrait of a Tyranny if I noticed all these mistakes probably about 20 overall without properly counting The Summer Without Men it makes me wonder why any proof reader editor or beta reader wouldn t

uiet Houses Summary À 107 THE HOUSES ARE UIET IT IS THEIR RESIDENTS WHO ARE SCREAMING No one could be that unhappy and be alive A chambermaid's seemingly innocent reuest is granted an act of kindness that has dire conseuences for the guest at THE ELMS MORECAMBE Human despair has a power of its own after death and it is contagious I wish I had been right; I wish that it had been a man or death alone that had found her An unearthly light in an abandoned bungalow resolves the mystery of a missing child but no human force has taken her An entity that fishes for children is in THE MERRY HOUSE SCALE HALL But will it remain there Go beyond the graves and they will come to you An invitation to a cliff. In the afterword to uiet Houses author Simon Kurt Unsworth refers to the book as a two fold experiment an attempt to write intertwined stories in order to create a written portmanteau as well as an attempt to utilize personal and familiar real life locations as the settings for all the stories Although some of the places in the stories are fictional they are heavily based on real places and the afterword does a great job of breaking down each location going into their importance to Unsworth and the reasons he chose them The final product of this experiment although not perfect could only be called a successuiet Houses opens with an advertisement Do you live in a haunted house Have you ever been to a place and had an experience that you cannot explain Do you have a story to tell Serious researcher wants to hear from you Must be prepared to go on record No timewasters Tel 01524 500501 ext 23 and leave a message The book follows paranormal researcher Richard Nakata s investigations into alleged hauntings and is broken up into two different types of chapters short in between chapters which set the stage for Nakata s imminent investigation and the larger chapters which detail the incidents themselves Structurally this works rather smoothly The interlude chapters are short enough to set the stage without lingering too long and work nicely as the cement that holds all the individual stories togetherWhich brings us to the stories themselves Each of these chapters is titled after a place and although the earlier parts of the book continue with the premise of Nakata gathering stories from others it isn t long before the chapters are of Nakata himself having experiences instead Nakata s chapters are unfortunately the mixed lot of the bunch I found that the four larger chapters featuring him were split the first two Beyond St Patrick s Chapel Heysham Head and The Temple of Relief and Ease failed to resonate within me like the others in the book while I found the final two 24 Glasshouse Glasshouse Estate and Stack s Farm Trough of Bowland to be essential and very climactic The first two chapters follow Nakata as he explores two areas that came to his attention Although they have their moments and I would still consider them to be good examples of storytelling I felt that they were the weaker chapters of the book The final chapters are the ones that truly tell Nakata s story 24 Glasshouse explores Nakata s past detailing a very important part of his life that will shape the Nakata of the present while Stack s Farm is where all threads of the story culminate in a truly frightening and enlightening mannerThe three other chapters which are the experiences related to Nakata by others absolutely shine from a horror perspective although their delivery varies in style In the first of these larger chapters a sad older man tells Nakata his tale about The Elms Hotel in a cafe The Elms takes place in the present as a conversation in the cafe The reader is able to follow Nakata s growing discomfort as the man s ghost story is told The chapter is uite chilling and makes for an excellent opener The second of these chapters The Merry House is presented as a letter and reads in the first person This narrative shift cutting out Nakata completely makes for a immersive reading experience Instead of seeing Nakata s reactions readers are now reading the letter for themselves allowed to come to their own conclusions This is also without a doubt the most terrifying story in the book and goes way beyond being a ghost story The third of these chapters The Ocean Grand is another story about a hotel although this eschews despair for blood and action Three men self dubbed the Save Our Shit Crew spend a few days camped within the long closed Art Deco style Ocean Grand Hotel where they will appraise what art can be saved and restored The narrative style of this story takes another turn by switching back to third person however unlike the first chapter Nakata is not present in the telling and the story only focuses on the three men involved The story itself is great but this narrative choice is a bit jarring as it s not clear until the end which character is the narrator introduced in the preceding interlude chapter where he is not named I believe this was intentional on Unsworth s part as readers know going into the story that two of the men don t make it and by withholding the name of the narrator Unsworth makes sure that the uncertainty and tension continue until the endOverall Unsworth has succeeded in his uest to make a horror portmanteau The majority of the stories in uiet Houses stand strong and the interludes threading them together work exceptionally well I think I would have liked to see stories related to Nakata by others as I thought those were the best As a whole though I can t really complain because it came together so beautifully in the end In the afterword Mr Unsworth states I like Nakata he ll be back I can only look towards that day with eager anticipation Originally appeared on my blog The Arkham Digest
