Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

At the start of screenwriter Sokoloff's first novel, a teen terror flick in prose, generic Baird College is emptying out for Thanksgiving break, but a few stalwart students have decided to stay on campus to avoid going home to their dysfunctional families. One night, under the influence of booze and drugs, they whip out a ouija board and inadvertently summon what they believe is the spirit of a student who died there decades before. In truth, it's something nastier, and the quintet spend the rest of the story desperately trying to send back to the void an evil entity that won't go gently. The characters, who include the mousy good girl and the nerd whose scholarly skepticism grows increasingly grating with each repeat expression, develop little personality outside of their carefully crafted types. The pyrotechnic climax, in which the kids prove unusually adept at occult subterfuge, stretches credibility but provides a suitably cinematic finale. (Sept.)

From Booklist

What better thing could strangers isolated in a big, near-deserted building while a raging storm takes out the electricity and compels the use of flickering candles possibly discover than an ancient, charred Ouija board? The previously unacquainted in question are five students sitting out Thanksgiving weekend in a 100-year-old residence hall. And that Ouija board turns wicked, of course, when it manifests a ghost named Zachary, who turns the place into a chaotic battleground for the forces of evil versus cosmic goodness and light. What seemed a sick joke one of the five was playing on the others has morphed into a situation in which no one can be trusted. Sokoloff sustains pace and suspense while encouraging the reader to identify with Robin, a young woman from a poor, alcohol-ravaged family, who yearns for acceptance. Will she get it from the all-American jock she lusts for; the slutty tease; the quiet, intellectual rabbi's son; and the brooding musician who are her companions for this scary ordeal? Good, engrossing fun. Whitney Scott

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best ghost/horror novels I've ever read! 29. September 2015
Von oldcollegecoed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I never rate books, generally because I'm too busy to spend the time necessary to write a decent review. This time I felt compelled to write about this uniquely intriguing tale which quickly makes the reader care deeply about the characters. They are so well written and authentic, they felt real to me. I had a personal connection with them. The story itself was ingenious...so different than the usual ghost story, and I cannot recommend it enough. I'd hoped to see a sequel listed, but none yet. I hate to think that I'll never have another opportunity to check in on Robin and her newfound friends!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good ghost story. 24. Mai 2017

I read this one because I became such a fad of her female serial killer series but, while it developed well and kept you involved throughout the ending left me just a tad bit flat. I am still a fan of her storytelling.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not wildly original, but pleasantly paced and readable 15. Januar 2013
Von Desert Mambo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
My title says it all--this certainly is not a great book, and is not terribly original, but it was well written, well-paced, and engaging enough to keep my attention, so I enjoyed reading it and felt like it was worth the $3 I paid for the kindle version.

I described this to a friend as The Breakfast Club meets The Haunting of Hill House, and it's something like that: a group of teens, some angst-ridden, and a haunted dorm. True, the teens were pretty much types: the depressed girl, the jock, the slut, the musician, the nerd. But they were still well developed enough as characters that I became interested in them and concerned for them.

The plot is pretty basic, though the writer does a good job of bringing in a lot of interesting horror story elements: ghosts (or not?), Ouija boards, possession, etc, and the book is wonderfully atmospheric. Often, in a book like this which is not a new tale, what I'm interested in is the way the writer plays with tradition--adding her own touches to something done before. I liked the way she played with weather (dark and stormy nights, but she made her descriptions much more original) and with the elements of haunting and possession. And the book is well paced. Honestly, I wasn't going to buy it after reading some of the reviews, but I read the sample chapter and found I wanted to know what happened to the characters, so I got it, and I meant to take this book to read on a trip, but found I'd compulsively consumed it all before I ever left! So the writer gets good marks for pacing and plotting that makes you want to continue reading, even if it's not new ground.

There was a lot of willing suspension of disbelief for me in this novel, though. There were so many things that just didn't ring true (an odd thing to say about a horror novel, I know, when being "realistic" is not the point). There appeared to be no adults supervising the dorms at the college, and no employees there at all. I kept thinking how so many of things were a lawsuit waiting to happen : fireplaces, leaving students entirely unattended over a break, and of course, the fact that the police let suspects go without a real questioning. Power was out sometimes, though apparently there was still a "blue glow" from the laundry room--how would that be if the power was out? I decided just to let go of all those things, and go with the story, and that made it enjoyable.

At least it was well written enough on a sentence level that I would be willing to read more of this writer's work, and it was very readable. So not a great book, but not bad if you can pick it up cheap or at your library, and if you enjoy classic horror that is more about atmosphere and tension that is about gore and shock value. I like those kind of books, myself, so I found it worth reading.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Alexandra Sokoloff is my new favorite author! The Harrowing is about a college student ... 2. November 2016

Alexandra Sokoloff is my new favorite author! The Harrowing is about a college student whose name is Robin. It's Thanksgiving break and she is planning on taking a different path for her life. Little does she know, 4 other students are also planning to stay in the dorm...or is it 5? If it is 5, is it another living person? I could not put this book down!! I would say it's like a paranormal thriller. I will warn you that there is some anti-Semitic writing that I personally found a bit offensive, HOWEVER; I LOVED this book and plan to read it again!
4.0 von 5 Sternen An evil let loose 29. April 2017
Von Suze - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This was a good book and kept me involved wanting more. However I was a bit disappointed with the ending as I felt the hero who saved them was left, via media, to look like the murderer albeit out of his mind.
