Beth Gutcheon: More Than You Know

More Than You Know - Beth Gutcheon

Reading a ghost story is my favourite way to get scared. Reading a literary ghost story is the best: because the characters are emotionally complex, the prose is smooth, the plot is well-timed, and the themes are multi-faceted (and go beyond "Be scared!"). The scary scenes in this book freaked me out, as if Gutcheon wrote them just to scare me personally. It was fun.
