The much-promised book review of
yesterday the day before yesterday:
(WARNING: DO NOT READ IF YOU CAN’T STAND HORROR)
Title: Lockwood & Co.: The Screaming Staircase
Author: Jonathan Stroud
Publisher: Random House Children’s Publishers UK
This is the absolute best horror-book series of all time (or in my mind at least). The Screaming Staircase is the first book in the Lockwood & Co. series and it is wonderful.
Lucy Carlyle is the story-teller/main character. She is living in London where the ‘Ghost Problem’ has been raging for over 50 years. As a psychic investigator, Lucy investigates and stops hauntings all over London with the rest of her team (George and Lockwood) from Lockwood & Co., one of the city’s many psychic investigation teams. When one of the agency’s cases goes horribly wrong the agency is given a £60,000 fine to pay by the end of the month. But when they get a chance to take on a case that will pay the whole bill, and that’s just by arriving at the place they have to, there’ll be a chance to get back into business. In order to get the money they must spend a night in England’s most haunted house.
I loved this super-scary book and would recommend it greatly. I have to say that I would only recommend it to people over 10 who love horror because it is very scary. I would rate it 10/10 and definitely think that all horror-lovers would adore it.
(IF YOU DISLIKED THAT BECAUSE YOU HATE HORROR THEN I TOLD YOU SO!)
Now, lastly for Rainbow Girl‘s questions:
How long were you home schooled?
I was home schooled all of last year, so only 1 year. It was heaps of fun.
What type of school do you go to now?
A very good one! I can’t say the name (because that is too personal), but it’s very fun. By the way, it’s a state school, if that’s what the actual question was.
