A woman commits suicide for no apparent reason. A week later, her son -- beautiful, troubled fifteen-year-old Mark Underhill -- vanishes from the face of the earth. To his uncle, horror novelist Timothy Underhill, Mark's inexplicable absence feels like a second death. After his sister-in-law's funeral, Tim searches his hometown of Millhaven for clues that might help him unravel this mystery of death and disappearance. He soon learns that a pedophilic murderer is on the loose in the vicinity, and that shortly before his mother's suicide Mark had become obsessed with an abandoned house where he imagined the killer might have taken refuge. No mere empty building, the house on Michigan Street whispers from attic to basement with the echoes of a long-hidden true-life horror story, and Tim Underhill comes to fear that in investigating its unspeakable history, Mark stumbled across its last and greatest secret: a ghostly lost girl who may have coaxed the needy, suggestible boy into her mysterious domain.… (més)

I've always felt that Peter Straub has never gotten his due from critics and horror fans. He's the Bob Seger of the literary world: a great storyteller as acknowledged by nearly everyone who has read his work, but without the Hollywood-propped household name recognition of a Stephen King or a Neil Gaiman. LOST BOY, LOST GIRL is just more evidence of this.

Straub is a true master of the genre in both style and substance. This story is a strange wandering through an early 2000s landscape when cameras were not yet everywhere and Internet-enabled technology still felt somewhat magical to the average user. In that way, this novel has probably not aged well.

However, if you set aside the dated technological references and instead focus on the double mystery of Nancy Underhill's suicide and Mark Underhill's disappearance, the story is timeless. Familial bonds are tested. Young boys only out to entertain themselves become inextricably linked to a mysterious empty house. Murderous evil people are suspected of wrongdoing. Societal and cultural prejudices hold deadly influence over events and people. And then there's the ghost of the little girl.

There's a great deal to enjoy about LOST BOY, LOST GIRL. I'm glad I picked it up. ( )

I finally read this book.
It was fun, interesting, but didn't really have a wow! for me.
I'm not exactly sure why this is, perhaps because of the confused way of telling, or the open ending, or that I could not really identify with one of the main characters.
It was an okay read, butI'm a tidbit disappointed. ( )

'Lost boy Lost girl' was an interesting read, in which takes the reader for a run-a-round mind boggle. The plot in itself seemed slow (at first) though picked up substantially near the end of Part 1. I'm looking forward to discussing this book with my grandmother, to compare if I am correct in the way I lead myself to believe the ending.. I read this book in less than a day, simply due to the curiosity I succumbed to. Enjoyed his play on horror novels and will be sure to read more of his work. ( )

...that's what I imagine happened to Stephen King in order for him to have written the blurb on the cover of this - "May be the best book of his career" - unless it was a really nasty left-handed compliment in which case...

SPOILER ALERT
I was toddling along with this merrily enough until I got into the last 50? 75? pages when it became clear that the denouement was going to revolve around...

magic teenage sex with the invisible undead. Or something. But it's cool because she's really, really hot. ( )

This must be the year for rereads. I just love this creepy little story; not sure if it's the setting (a barely-disguised Milwaukee), the strange setup, the recurring character from another of Straub's books. I like this Peter Straub, an effective writer, before he went off the rails. ( )

Ich sah mich vor einem gewaltigen Hügel, Und lange Tage kletterte ich Durch Regionen des Schnees. Als ich den Gipfelblick vor mir hatte, Schien es, als hätte meine Mühe Dazu gedient, Gärten zu sehen, Die in undenkbarer Ferne lagen. - Stephen Crane
Was hier auf dem Spiel stand, dachte er, war die Undurchlässigkeit der Welt. - Timothy Underhill: Der geteilte Mann
