I could hear Dennis talking to my ma. 'She was little,' he said. 'Little like me. But old. Older than you.' Those words gave me a cold shock. I could see Dennis imagining fairies, but old ones? When Bobby's mother moves the family into a rented house in the country, a neighbour tells him that a child was once murdered there. Bobby doesn't care. All he wants is to get back to Dublin and to resume his wild life there, stealing from the crowded shopping streets and racing stolen cars at night. But getting his old life back doesn't turn out to be so easy, and the longer he spends in the old cottage, the more convinced he becomes that something very strange is going on there. Was there really a murder? And if so, was it the one he has been told about?

A great story about a troubled teen 12. Mai 2009
Von Maggie Knapp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It is hard to categorize this book. Bobby is a delinquent, thieving, foul-mouthed, rebellious Irish teen who is moved by his troubled mother to a house in the countryside. She is hoping that Bobby, removed from the bad influences of Dublin, will be able to start over. Or at least that she, Bobby and his younger brother can hide from the creditors. Oh, one small thing: the house may or may not be haunted. The previous tenant disappeared. Fascinating and richly drawn neighbors balance the mom's lousy parenting. All of the characters are many-sided and realistic. There are no pat answers to any of the questions, but the story will suck you in and keep you reading far into the night.

Rare, sensitive 5. März 2011
Von M. S. du Toit - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This book swept me away.

The "hero" is a young boy that most of us would avoid knowing, and would judge out of hand as a burden on society, a juvenile criminal, callous and violent. And yet Kate Thompson succeeds in portraying him sensitively and sympathetically without excusing his behaviour.

The characters are convincing and fascinating, and I finished the book feeling as though I had really spent the time inside somebody else's head, and learnt something new about how the world works.

Great story heading in a direction you don't expect. 27. Dezember 2012
Von NM - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I must say when I initially bought this book I wasn't enticed by the premise. I just bought it hoping for a thriller to pass the time. It started off slowly enough and I wondered where the narrative was heading. I didn't pay attention as the characters were slowly introduced and fleshed out until you came to care for them. I held on as the plot took me along with enough incentive to turn just one more page. By the halfway point I realized I was completely hooked. The author took her time bringing you in like a frog in a slow boil. The plot takes you in an unexpected way as you follow the troubled teen on his discovery on who is the true creature of the night. Great read. Highly recommend.

Good Story with Rough Language 2. September 2012
Von T. King - Veröffentlicht auf
I agree that this was pretty well written and engaging. I would have preferred a bit more scare and a little less of the bad boy exploits. This book has been recommended for grades 8 and up. The characters in this tale are very rough and their language is equally rough. The author uses the F-BOMB quite a bit. Parents may want to consider this before letting their children read the book.
