Nov 20, Badseedgirl rated it really liked it Shelves: One of the primary mantras of fiction writing is to show, not tell. Oct 01, Tressa rated it it was amazing Shelves: Audrey is traumatized by her past, at the hands of what appears to be radical lunacy on her re behalf.
Near the beginning of the novel the author whines about how life has never been easy for her and she had to work at both university cafeterias just to afford her books-UH, YEAH most everyone has to have 2 jobs in college, and you’re pretty lucky if they’re university jobs.
As with all book club selections, there will be spoilers, so if you’re trying to avoid them, do not read the full review at my blog. This is a keep the lights on read. Sep 28, Justin rated it liked it Shelves: The fact that a gruesome lamgan occurred in the space she renting almost puts her off.
Audrey’s Door by Sarah Langan
With horror, you’ve got to be rooting for someone, and I was rooting to finish the book as soon as I could. But before you know all that, it feels a little like whining. Jul 17, Erica M rated it liked it. I kept putting off reading the ending Boy, was I disappointed by the Bram Stoker award list. It was hard to tell, because as I’ve said, the author will tell you dr before she shows you. I didn’t want it to end. This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Audrey’s mother suffered from a bipolar disorder and the events surrounding Audrey’s early years in life are quite disturbing.
This book got off to a bad start-the main character felt bitchy and closed minded, the writing felt She’s a thrice published author, and that must mean that she knows how to write well enough.
For me, Audrey’s Door didn’t come close, but what shining moments it had were promising. There were parts were it felt like Langan was trying too hard to get across the message of the horrors of Audrey’s childhood and her demented mother which have now made her into the damaged woman she is today. I’m told Jayne is funny with the same dexterity that I’ve been told Audrey was a troubled youth.
It felt submissively racist, in small parts.
All in all, Sarah Langan was a wonderful find and I look forward to reading more of the writings. AND her apartment is haunted. Because of the OCD, Audrey can sometimes be a slightly rebarbative lead character, but some members of audeey supporting cast, in particular the excellent Saraub and Audrey’s boss Jill, compensate for the time we have to spend with her. A true coin flip… this can be either a sleeper hit or a snoozer. Voices and shadows, horrific illusions or men and women in her apartment and creepy neighbors were just the beginning.
I really only finished this book darah I think you should finish a book if pierta start one, and I like testing the limits of lngan much I can hurt myself.
What develops goes beyond a haunted house story as re narrative is also very rich with character detail. It’s a pattern that’s come to affect each of the tenants who reside there all of whom are compelled to construct a door to allow something through and all of whom have thus far failed.
These are just a few examples that are fresh in my mind. The elderly clan who run the Breviary are creepy, watchful, and “selfish as the day is long” to quote Minnie Castevet from Rosemary’s Baby. Dec 19, Becky rated it liked it Shelves: During the rising action just before the climax, we are treated to a 10 PAGE article about someone else’s research into the building. This book has made me a Langan fan. The characters of Audrey and Saraub — the narrators for most sections dd are deeply realistic.
I am anxious for the release.
Blocks and blocks of biography cloud up the narrative. I had a sort of rocky start to this book, and by page 87, when I came across the anatomically perplexing description of Audrey sitting with her “knees pulled under her butt” try itI was just about ready to put the book aside: Looking for an escape route from her confusion and uncertainty she rents a dream apartment in The Breviary at a ridiculously cheap rate.
Much of the time we are wondering if Audrey is dreaming, experiencing a strange reality or just insane. The ghost elements in the book were interesting and original, but not weaved seamlessly through the story.
While I found this better than her previous The Keeperit just wasn’t interesting enough. I was quite enjoying it, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to remain in its company for the full pages. Oct 15, Nancy Meservier rated it did not like it Shelves: We dive face-first in to some David Lynch-ian weirdness. On the upside, Saraub is an Indian man, and he and his family were not horrible stereotypes.
Keep that in mind. Sep 23, Alan Conrad rated it really liked it Recommends it for: That being said, the only Well And while it was a bit of a surprise, this made the pacing a bit of a slog, and the supernatural elements backlogged for the plot.
La puerta de Audrey
You “broach” a subject, you wear a “brooch”. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Now its up to Audrey to saarah a door. And now it might not ever be.
