    When Arthor Crandle is down on his luck, he gets a job as a personal assistant to a reclusive Providence author whose initials are H.P While getting increasingly vexed by his absent employer, Crandle is haunted by the ghost of a little girlI had my eye on this one for a while but the ebook was ridiculously expensive Fortunately, it went on sale a couple weeks ago Frankly, I wouldn

    I had mixed feelings about The Broken Hours The book was not at all what I expected, in good and bad ways The writing itself was spectacular, scalpel precise but never too simple or sparse Every word felt like it was exactly where it was supposed to be There was a beauty and intensity and than a little melancholy that cut right into my perception and continued its work deep into my brain

    Fiction which uses real historical characters can be tricky and sometimes disappointing if the reader knows about the historical figure than the author Happily, this is not the case with this novel Baker uses weird fiction writer H.P Lovecraft as a character but has obviously done her research Although she takes a few liberties with facts as sometimes fiction must she remains true to the essence of both

    i will admit to some initial surprise at the lack of what one comes to expect from a novel of H.P Lovecraft but that hardly seemed to matter, as i tore through this book in one sitting OK, i got up to make tea, so two sittings technically the writing for this tale was period perfect, and full of wonderful phrases and word choices just grand definitely an odd literary trip, but quite enjoyable one was consistently left to wonder what wa

    This is a delicious slow burn of a reading experience And experience really captures it for me the haunting prose kept me in the moment, fully engaged with disbelief suspended I purposefully did not try to anticipate where the mystery was going or what the end point would be, and I think that s the best way to enjoy this dreamlike and deeply psychological book If you re looking for non stop action, you ll be disappointed That said, I was riveted the e
