Well written and intriguing, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the past events and how they paved the way for the present day horrors This story was greatly imaginative and suspenseful Amy Cross masterfully creates This was the third book of Cross s I read Like the previous two, I was quite enjoying it for a good 65 75% But just like those other books, the story went off the rails about that point and had a somewhat unsatisfactory ending It seems her pattern is to crank along and just lose it towards the end of the story, rushing because she doesn t quite know how to end it well.
You get two for one in this book.
It begins in 1979 when Sara and her sister come across a dead body in the river Waiting for her sister to return with help, Sara meets a mysterious man who claims to be Death Not long after, bad things visit the family.
Flash forward thirty years Paula and her father move into the old abandoned farm he bought at a bargain price because of it s tragic history She s excited to learn it s rud to be haunted and she hopes to encounter ghosts She should have been careful what she wished for.
I ve read many of Amy s books and she always manages to give me the chills She did it again with The Farm I like reading scary books at night You get such vibes when it s dark out and all is still I managed to creepy mys The Farm was not a bad book I was not scared and I was hoping it would be for me The end of the book, the thing in the barn, that was a good twist for me I did not expect that at all The ending was a little sad for me Overall, I was hoping for out of this book but it wasn t bad just wanted to be scared.
This would have been 4 stars for me if it wasn t for the mc and all the cussing I don t mind cuss words but it felt unnecessary for it to be every other word especially from a teenage character.
Way too much use of the word gd and cursing from the main character who was supposed to be the innocent teenage daughter 3.
5 stars A story like this was disturbing enough to not need that every sentence Good grief And why that Just say damn Or, hey, just be articulate than that OR even just talk like a normal teenager and not a sailor Here she was a teenager and her father didn t curse hardly or say anything to her about her mouth What It was almost a DNF but I enjoy this author s books Except for one other part where I was like ok, unnecessary, the story was great It was spooky and all Just whew This would have been better as a series also instead of trying to cram all of this into one book.
One farm, two tragedies, 30 years apart This was my first book by author Amy Cross and I was not disappointed The story takes place in Norway during 1979 and present day It begins with the murder of 3 sisters on The Farm The property sets vacant until the present when a widower and his teenage daughter move in And eerie occurances ensues to a possible deadly level.
With a fantastic atmosphere and engaging, empathetic characters, this book delivers with a remake of the classic haunted house tale Instead of a haunted house, there is haunted farm Instead of an eerie room with a dark past, a barn with an evil lurking to consume anyone who dare enter The pacing is well done, hopping back and forth from the past to the present Cross creates vibr Oh how badly I wanted to like this than I did This book took forever to grab my attention and even when it did it wasn t by much I hated the characters, they made the novel as a whole feel like a YA than an adult horroir novel I had to add an extra star though because it s Amy Cross and she s my favorite and this is the first of many I ve read of her works that I didn t absolutely love.
