A Book Review: House, by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker

A collaboration between two of today's best thriller writers: Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker.

The result is...

...a really. scary. book.  I'm a bona-fide scaredy-cat, so, I don't know if other readers will be as creeped out as I was.

House is a story that follows 7 characters trapped inside a haunted house who are forced to play a game imposed by the serial killer, Barsidious White.  While they play along they will have to kill one in their group if they want to get out of the house alive.  As the game progresses they each will face their own fears and the darkness of their hearts.

The reader is taken through twists and turns until you can see the characters for who they really are.

Overall, this book, though creepy, is a lightweight and very good read.  The symbolisms the authors entwined throughout the plot is remarkable.

  1. When I saw the title of your post I immediately thought "Hmm the HOUSE TV series is expanding, whats next a movie?"

    Turns out this is a different kind of house, a scary one. Maybe my lil sis would like this book since I recently saw her reading books with scary stories....

    Enjoy reading!

  2. Oh, do recommend. It's a good read :)
