I've read a couple of Pyper's novels and this is where he's at his best: small Ontario town, a haunted house, a dark secret. It's my favourite kind of horror: creepy fear that builds over the pages where evil lurks in old seeping walls. The shadows and the unknown are scarier than the effects themselves. A perfect read for the Halloween season. ( )

Wow. Creepy, poignant, heartbreaking. A great haunted house story, psychological thriller and ode to the friendship of boys, all in one very good book. ( )

Meh. NPR horror. I never was convinced that the coach killed Heather, and even the boys were the bad guys in kidnapping him and leaving him tied up in a haunted house where he was possessed. Then he killed himself to keep from hurting the boys, so he was the real guardian. ( )

The Guardians are the local high school hockey team, the team that brought together Trevor, Randy Carl and Ben first as friends, and then as conspirators. Growing up in the small community of Grimshaw, everyone knew about the “Thurman house”. Probably, no one as well as these four boys when the witnessed a terrifying event that left each of them scarred in their own way. Twenty-four years later they reunite to pay last respects to Ben, who has committed suicide. Each returns with his own “ghost” to contend with, but none as frightening as confronting the “Thurman house” again.

I am always searching for a heart palpitating haunting. There are some excellent ones, but in my humble opinion, of recent years they fall into the category of psychological thrillers with an entity thrown own. There’s nothing wrong with that and I enjoy the books very much but what ever happened to a good, old fashioned haunting? I do not go out of my way to read Canadian authors, but I do have some favourites and Mr. Pyper certainly numbers among them. I enjoyed this book but kept thinking of Stephen King’s The Body combined with Four Weddings and a Funeral. My quest for a really good fright goes on.

I'm torn.

Because on the one hand I really enjoyed this book. It was beautifully written and unlike so many of the ghost stories I've read recently it was actually a bit scary.

On the other hand, however, I am so fed up of books that explore the love between male friends and murder women to create manpain. They can be perfectly good books, but there are so many of them.

So, three stars. Unfair? Yep! Irrational? Double-Yep! ( )
