[Novel] Summer of Night (Dan Simmons)

Summer of Night

Book

An entertaining horror story centering around a haunted school and a bunch of kids involved in the affair set in 60s, somewhat reminiscent of Stephen King’s “It.”

Positive:
Negative:
Light and conversational, but pleasant and flowing prose
The story doesn’t offer anything particularly unusual
Likable, relatively profound characters
Immersing plot with an odd surprising twist here and there
Genuinely spooky, unnerving atmosphere
