Ransom Riggs has created such an eerily atmospheric novel that it is nearly impossible to put the book down. As more of the plot is revealed, you can’t help but read further to see what other photos will be revealed. The characters are so fascinating and each one has such an interesting history that you cannot wait to learn more about them. While the pace is slow, it only adds to the atmosphere and enhances the mystery of the narrative. This is a great read for mystery or suspense fans with a bit of fantasy thrown in to make quite the gripping read. You may want a light on if you read it at night.
