    1. A GR friend recommended my re read of this book on audio and holy crow They were right There are a couple of different narrators and some sound effects Nothing too major, running, crumpling paper,etc I immediately added the audio to my Audible wishlist Loved it I can t believe this is the author s first novel I m in love with this book It s set up like a crime case The whole thing isn t like that, seeing as how you have to get to know the characters that play out in this creepy book, but it has [...]

    2. Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend.Everyone knows about the Johnson Incident people died, and one person went missing who was never found Conspiracy theorists believe the culprit was Kaitlin Johnson Only problem is, Kaitlin doesn t exist According to Dr Lansing, she s just a product of trauma, an alter ego created by Carly Johnson, a girl suffering from dissociative identity disorder The Dead House is a collection of transcribed interviews, v [...]

This Book Is Pure MADNESS It messed with my brain and left me speechless I mean, if you d asked me to retell the story, I wouldn t have been able to Just because I don t know myself what really happened there This book is a trickster, and we have a very unreliable main character Seriously, people, it blew my mind I don t even know what to think This is so messed up I have no idea what is true and what s not If you re a fan of mysteries, then this story is for you Okay, let s start.Firstly, the s [...]

    5. Despite the fantastic premise, this book is a complete and utter cluster fuck It s not just that there s a lot going on there isn t, really but it seems like the goalposts are shifting every five seconds It s a story about two girls who share a body, which may be a product of a paranormal incident or dissociative identity disorder There s their parents mysterious death in a car crash several years earlier There s the haunted school they attend There s a shadowy figure which may be the girl s dia [...]

    6. Disclaimer this wasn t a scary book When we say scary , that s something I would give to the likes of Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics and Girl from the Well The Suffering by Rin Chupeco This wasn t even a mind fuck of a book a la Dangerous GirlsHowever, that doesn t mean my mind didn t reel from it Even though this didn t have the quiet or the jumpy horror I am well fond of, how this book delivered a kickass psychological paranormal thriller made me shiver in my boots.1 Unreliable narrator [...]

    8. You ve surely heard this before, but here it is again The Dead House is a very unusual sort of book, narrative wise It is a skillfully woven web of diary entries, video transcripts, police interview transcripts, e mails and instant messages, newspaper clippings and other documents pertaining one horrible event known as the Johnson Incident The concept itself is a brilliant one, wholly new and original While it starts with two souls in one body, something we ve certainly seen before, what Kurtagi [...]

    9. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2015 09 13 yFirst let me say I had no idea before I got an ARC of this novel that it would be written in the epistolary style as a collection of mostly diary entries, though it also includes interview transcripts, descriptions of video footage, emails and newspaper articles, etc Not to mention the huge visual component I picked up The Dead House because I love horror and I m also always on the lookout for good creepy YA, but seriously nothing could [...]

    10. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Hachette Children s Group and NetGalley My doctor is convinced that I m not really here She keeps trying to convince me of it, too This book was just not for me.The characters in this were slightly strange as they had one body and 2 personalities, and these personalities could only speak to each other by leaving post it notes for the other to find.The storyline in this was just all over the place We had no [...]

    11. One thing that can be said about this time of year, is that it is full of wonderful creepy, crazy stories and The Dead House, definitely fits in with that description This book was, to say the least, unique in every way imaginable From the content, to the setting, to the unreliable narrative to the secondary characters that can t be trusted Where everyone s sanity is questioned and the mystery itself it just that, mysterious and sometimes hard to decipher It has been hours since I have finished [...]

    12. Well, that was creepy Checks and double checks, wow this is a first novel How is this just the right amount of awesomeness Work of a pure wiccan, I am telling you No, really Some writers are endowed with raw talent This book was truly disturbing I was so eager to read this When I got this book I didn t know it was an epistolary novel, I was a little dismayed at first I wanted , and oddly enough it was And nope, nope, no I won t be mentioning Warpaint in this review Not this time No Warpaint in [...]

    13. Written from pieces of a journal, the story unravels in a unique way Mostly there s journal entries, newspaper clippings and even some video camera screenshots ones which I found to be creepy There is one main character but this character is also suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder, which used to be called multiple personality disorder During the day one identity comes out and during the evening the other comes out It was a little confusing at times, but you can tell how distinct their [...]

    15. This book is so weird but I actually really enjoyed how strange it was It was a really original and unique read and it was also really spooky and creepy And just completely crazy This had to be one of the craziest books that I ve ever read I m still dumbfounded over this book This book was told through diary entries, video clips, and interviews so that was interesting but I honestly don t really like that format I find it hard to follow and I can t really get invested in the characters I love th [...]

    17. I liked the beginning but the plot lost me towards the middle and end It got very supernatural out of nowhere and I wish there d been a rational explanation, but I thought the suspense was really successful and there were moments were I literally had chills

    18. I really enjoyed this book, and some parts were so scary and it is not easy to get me scared It is so addictive and easily read in one setting I have exams so I restricted myself to read it only before bed for 30 minutes or so If I had the time, I would have finished it in one setting and probably enjoyed it even .The only thing that bothered me was that there were a couple of times that I felt confused and didn t get what was going on maybe because I was getting tired and sleepy DI really want [...]

D.I.D Dissociative Identity Disorder or demonic possession Read this haunting book and decide for yourself.This book was haunting, eerie, creepy and downright fantastic This was like the Blair Witch of books I don t mean the stories were the same or even similar, but in the way Dead House was written This wasn t your average book writing style that we are use to It does have chapters and sectional parts, but the entire book was comprised of journal entries, interviews, personal notes, emails and [...]

    23. This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoThe Dead House is one messed up book and I say that in the best way possible.It s the kind of book that will mess up your brain to the point where you won t be able to tell the lies apart from the truth.This book is mostly told in dairy format and for some people that may be a turn off but I thought it was a very interesting way to look at things We may not be inside the main character s mind but in a way we are We sense her desperation, we fe [...]

    26. This would have been a four star read for me, but I felt like the story had a lot of buildup towards a big fiery ending, and then didn t deliver I still enjoyed the book, and liked the interesting style.

    27. I felt the book was good in places, and also creepy in that good way, but it was also disjointed and a little too much so I liked the idea of the journal entries and things At the end I was left feeling like huh Maybe it just ended too quick for me, I m not sure.

Some people say that night blooms.But night descends self consciously Night cuts slowly.This is the essence of a well thought out and intelligently plotted thriller Dawn Kurtagich should be commended for being able to create a story that is as chilling as it is thought provoking.Carly and I are closer than sisters Closer than twins We might as well be the same person, because we share the same body We share one life, each getting part.Carly gets the day.I get the night.Siblings Carly and Kaitlyn [...]
