Ghost Story Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Ghost Story

Ghost Story is a complex book with a complicated plot and is written in a style that is not conducive to easy reading. It is filled with drawn-out complex sentences that sometimes make the reading a chore. But Ghost Story is worth the effort and concentration. Filled with vampire-like creatures and were-wolf types as well as an astoundingly elusive creature which may or may not be a ghost, Peter Straubs tale of the Chowder Society and what befalls them is one fine Gothic horror story.
