Long Lankin

Long Lankin Summary ☆ 5 Oys Roger and Peter Cora must uncover the horrifying secrets buried deep within Bryers Guerdon before it is too late for MimiBewitching and atmospheric this is a truly stunning debut that will linger with you for days after the final chilling pages. The next book off of the BookRiot s 50 Must Read Contemporary Horror Novels listYoung sisters Cora and Mimi are sent to stay with their eccentric ass aunt who lives in an isolated village in god knows where They re of course miserable which isn t helped by the fact that their aunt again is eccentric and weird They do befriend a couple village boys Roger and Peter so things aren t all that bad after a whileBut some strange shit is happening in this village of god knows whatever The children are on a mission to figure things out but not surprisingly they get in over their heads very uickly as tends to happen when strange shit is happening in isolated villagesThis is a fine book but I didn t love it I ve been reading a lot of books lately where the perspectives change and in this one the perspectives changes pretty freuently between the children and the aunt I wasn t turned off by that per se but it was hard to keep track after a while because in my opinion there wasn t a lot of differentiation between the ways the children especially spoke or thought Not to mention I had a hard time really seeing the characters Considering the amount of time Barraclough spent with descriptions of setting and environment and considering how well she managed that I would have liked a bit description of the characters themselves particularly the childrenIt takes a lot to scare me when I m reading horror books which is why I ve been reading through horror genre lists like no one s business lately and I won t say this one scared me either But there were moments that made me uncomfortable because Barraclough really nailed what it is like as a child to deal with creepinessIf she meant to do me harm she could have done it already come up behind me in the darkI swallow pull myself away from the wall stretch out my hand and lift the latch again I can hear my heart thudding in my chest and am barely able to place one foot in front of the other as I move towards the doorway in the corner once When I reach it I hold my breath and slowly peer around the frameA lightning bolt cracks and the room flashes with light There is nobody therep120Long Lankin himself is well I don t want to spoil too much But Long Lankin ranks high on the creep factor in my opinion It was hard for me to separate him from Slender Man which is my fault than anything else Once I had the idea of that in my mind I just couldn t shake itPrevious read on the horror list I m reading through Broken Monsters by Lauren BeukesNext up on the horror list The Imago Seuence and Other Stories by Laird Barron

Long Lankin Summary ☆ 5 Beware of Long Lankin When Cora and her little sister Mimi are sent to stay with their great aunt in the isolated village of Bryers Guerdon they sense immediately that they're not welcome What they don't know is that the last time two young girls w. Long Lankin is a tale that is uite slow paced but in such a way that makes you fall addicted to the story Its depictions of the creepy atmosphere blood curling ghostly creatures and fascinating history leave you absolutely glued to its pages not to mention chilled to the bone Set in the 1950 s Long Lankin brings us to a time where WW2 was just over and poverty was very much a reality Electricity was scarce so were methods of communication With this setting we ve got just a dash of dialect that makes the dialogue incredibly compelling it gives the voices a genuinely convincing feel along with aiding the atmospheric countryside vibe to come to life Our two main characters Cora and Roger both have legitimate teenage personalities Their narrations are realistic animating this story from both of their perspectives The regular POV switches are very well managed throughout the book the story move swiftly regardless of its slow ish pace in addition to keeping our curiosity and eagerness alive Aunt Ida s perspective also makes sporadic appearances bringing us into the mind of this cold angry old woman who has incredible depth to her character No matter how awful she seems you will be taken by her I guarantee it Then among the tombstones out of the air small figures appear They are all the size of little children but their colourless faces are old and rotten like the faces of the dead their eyes nothing than black holes their hair grizzled and sparse Aside from the character voices the descriptions in the book are a work of art The gloominess of the town the forsaken church Auntie Ida s decaying creaky old home and best of all the apparitions ghostshorrific children freak me OUT it s all so brilliantly enticing vivid and ominous It s than enough to induce chills Once you get close to the ending especially I would even consider terrifying We get this mystery solved in tiny bits and pieces mostly from old research and townsfolk I constantly wanted to know yet too caught up in the book to make up my own theories This caused the actual story to remain a mystery until the very end It s not the type of plot you can really guess even if you try however It s uniue encompassing witchcraft dark legends engrossing history and folklore In fact as seen along with the book trailer I wasn t familiar with the Long Lankin song before it s inspired by a haunting folk song about murder witchcraft and revenge This all comes to a close a bit too narrow for my taste Not that I didn t like the ending it s shuddersome with plenty of suspense and a good completion BUT I will admit that I was secretly hoping for a shocking revelation or disturbing twist that left me breathless so the neat ending is a little underwhelming in that sense I do blame this on my masochistic horror loving taste Haunting and tension filled Long Lankin is a gripping read that you absolutely must read if you love Gothic horror novels Expect a slow but terrific story that brings together excellent writing amazingly lively characters and a spine chilling tale For of my reviews visit my blog at Xpresso Reads

Long Lankin Summary ☆ 5 Ere at Guerdon Hall their visit ended in a mysterious violent tragedySomething dark and evil has haunted the village for centuries Now it has set eyes on its next victim and it will stop at nothing to lay claim to her With the help of local schoolb. Date Posted 142012Expected Publication Date July 10 2012Long Lankin was kindly provided to me by Netgalley for Candlewick PressInterested in of my reviews Visit my blog Everything was all right until they came The StorylineWhen Cora and her little sister Mimi are sent to live with their Great Aunt Ida it is clear from the start that they are neither wanted nor welcome in her house For the time being the children must stay with her but she immediately sends word to their father that he must come get them and he must come get them now Cora intrigued by the mysteries of the house despite their Aunt Ida s constant demands to not do this and not do that begins searching the house and the closely residing and eually mysterious church Cora gleans information from various papers found in the house from the local neighbors and from strange carvings like the words Cave Bestiam which is found in several locations Cora finds out than she bargained for that her and her family are intertwined in the mystery that no one is safe and that there really is something very real to fearThe WritingI found the writing to be uite gripping and reminded me at times of Susan Hill s writing in The Woman in Black I ve read several books that write using multiple different points of view and they re not always done as well as could be I believe it takes a talented author in order to make a multi point of view story not seem too terribly overwhelming this is definitely one of them The main focus is on Cora and Roger but you occasionally get an unsettling view of Cora s Aunt Ida and the occasional glimpse into past eventsOkay so I ll admit it I refused to read this alone I also reuired a lot of sunlight And yes I m a big weenie It wasn t exactly creepy the entire time though It was a bit like riding a wave honestly The book would lead up to a scene that would have you trembling in your boots and then everything would suddenly relax again and you d be lulled into a false sense of calm before the next swell Then the monster under the bed would jump right back out Okay comparing Long Lankin to the monster under the bed makes him sound like one of those monsters from Monsters Inc Long Lankin was not cute fuzzy or funny Long Lankin was one scary mo fo that I hope I never have a chance encounter with in a dark alley Or in my bedroom Mental to do list nail windows shut before bed The CharactersCora was uite a spirited little girl and didn t run in fear of anything including Long Lankin on a few occasions Cora Pretty much my hero She was an awesome big sister who didn t shrink in fear of anything when it came to saving her little sister Mimi Now Roger Roger was damn adorable and the frosting on the cakestory I loved how the occasional funny lines from Roger that were thrown in managed to lighten the overall tension that the story exudesThe EndingSo the ending lost a star for the overall rating because I can t help but feel that the ending left a bit to be desired Predictable is the word that primarily comes to mind I would have loved some cool crazy twist to it or have some rabid monkey show up okay maybe not a monkey a lion Anyways it seemed far too expected and I kind of sighed in disappointment when I was done Still have plans to nail windows shut though
