Houdini HeartHOUDINI HEART harkens back to the masters of suspenseful supernatural horror Poe Lovecraft Shirley Jackson but speaks with a wholly fresh voice Once caught in its pages there's no escaping Longfellow's terrible tale Weeks ago she was one of Hollywood's biggest writers wed to one of its greatest stars The doting mother of their golden child But now? She's alone tortured by a horrifying secret no woman could bear Pursued by t Couldn't resist reading an entirely different book by someone who has filled her work with such intense meaning and historical accuracy What a surprise Longfellow seems to be able to write anything This one is nothing like The Secret Magdalene or Flow Down Like Silver Hypatia of Alexandria It sneaky and sly and up to date and strange and pure literature even though it goes down like oil It's about a writer a second rate writer whose life has come to such a pass partly through her own doing that she's on the run Which brings her back to the only town in her ambitious life that meant anything to her A small town in Vermont in which stands a old hotel she remembers as magical River House has come down in the world just as she has and together they weave themselves into a fantastical knot of other people's talent first rate talent or first rate ghosts I loved it I think it's right up there with the very best psychological horror

Ki Longfellow Þ Houdini Heart Pdf

River House isn't what she'd always imagined it was Intense literary and harrowing Houdini Heart is a tale of bone chilling horror emotional torment and psychological terror Gripped by River House trapped in an aging hotel of mirrors only Houdini could escape how much can haunt a mind before it too is only a thing once imagined? A haunting and disturbing journey through the psyche Erika Mailman Author of The Witch's Trinity Longfellow pays homage to and takes influence from Lovecraft Shirley Jackson Steven King Hitchock Houdini and the Wendigo legend but creates a distintly new and fresh modern psychological terror The novel takes it shots at Hollywood and reveals the trials and tribulations of writers and the horror that they suffer unto their own minds I also found many similarities to the popular and polarizing work of Danielewski's House of Leaves although I'd guess unintentional Those liking House of Leaves I feel are likely to love this but this work also succeeds in every area House of Leaves drew complaints In the end you don't need Danielewski's if you can write like this side note while this is not of the young adult genre it does seem to be a good fit for young teens wishing to read some good horror that doesn't include vampires that sparkle

Or her suicide note? But life is never as you dream it and Slyly captivating and insidiously disturbing It's deceptively light conversational style like the best of Stephen King suckered me right in and before I knew it pages flying by I was deep into this masterfully written supernatural psychodrama like M R James by way of Patricia Highsmith A night dark and utterly convincing depiction of a mind unravelling leavened by genuine wit and compassion and made all the compelling by a beautifully rendered central character who I couldn't help but be both captivated and appalled by I felt uite nuts myself by the end There are two absolutely gruesome moments which I wont spoiler here where I had to stop I cant remember the last time I had to do that and a gloriously insane WTF moment at the end This is also a book of subtle richness that yields even on a second measured read This book will stay with me for a looooooooong time
