Hell House by Richard Matheson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this book very much in the first part, but about half way through this book it turned into something that was very adult. I got uncomfortable at times even listening to this book by myself.
I understood the story line and Richard's writing was very well done but I was just surprised where the book went. Other than that, I enjoyed the book. It did have very creepy aspects to it and very much a haunted house them to it. He did great on describing the visual aspects of the house.
Another thing, I am a huge animal lover and there is a point in the book where there is death to a cat, but it was only about 2 lines and no details were given as to how it happened. I am against animal cruelty so I would not have been able to finish the book if it would have given details.
Do not let any child under 17 read this. I would not even let a 14 or 15 year read this. It is very adult.
I rated this book 3 stars because of the amount adult activity in this book and due to mid way through the book it began to slow down.
