Talk about Dangerous Spaces

The more dreamy meditative pace and increasing mist of dread on this profoundly deep tale will not be suited to many older children / teens in our Ritalin and turbo-tv show generation. However, the characterization, the longing, the depth of the central plot and the lack of any craft seams or author artifice make this novel one that haunts. If you want a novel that takes you on a journey somewhere, this is your ticket. In a certain way, I've never come back.

It would not be possible to write a book on dreams with greater depth and internal consistency. The central item of the story that first gives glimpses into the potential "other" of the story and the world is also haunting.

4.6/5 stars.
I found this book rather boring. I thought the biginning was hard to get into. There were some unnessacary discriptions that just seemed to add on to the pages in the book. I noticed I was daydreaming numerous times, which was a sign I wasn't into it. Near the end of the book it got a little more fascinating. I enjoyed some ending scenes that had a little more action. Overall, it was an O.K. book. I wasn't overally thrilled.
The novel about a child living unhappily in a house (that could be haunted) with her relatives, may sound interesting.But it does not hold interest.
