Born out of the short story David Mitchell published on Twitter in 2014 and inhabiting the same universe as his latest bestselling novel The Bone Clocks, this is the perfect book to curl up with on a dark and stormy night.

Turn down Slade Alley - narrow, dank and easy to miss, even when you're looking for it. Find the small black iron door set into the right-hand wall. No handle, no keyhole, but at your touch it swings open. Enter the sunlit garden of an old house that doesn't quite make sense; too grand for the shabby neighbourhood, too large for the space it occupies.

A stranger greets you by name and invites you inside. At first, you won't want to leave. Later, you'll find that you can't.

This unnerving, taut and intricately woven tale by one of our most original and bewitching writers begins in 1979 and reaches its turbulent conclusion around Hallowe'en, 2015. Because every nine years, on the last Saturday of October, a 'guest' is summoned to Slade House. But why has that person been chosen, by whom and for what purpose? The answers lie waiting in the long attic, at the top of the stairs...



Great read

Normally I don''t read ''scary'' books. Yes, i''ve tried Stephen King a few times but probably I picked out the wrong ones. With this book I definately didn''t pick out a wrong one. It was a really nice and exciting story, to read about two evil ''things'' who trick and lock up several people throughout the years. It''s not like i''m really scared now, maybe mainly because the sun is shining, but moreover because I thought it was not THAT scary. However, the several different chapters were really nice to read and were placed into their time in a very clever and interesting way. You could feel that some characters really lived in the ''70 for example, or in the present. At the same time, when a chapter started, I was hooked immediately by the pace and really good writing of the author. I definately recommend this book for almost everyone, because it''s fast, it''s clever and it''s very entertaining!
