1867. Eliza Caine arrives in Norfolk to take up her position as governess at Gaudlin Hall on a dark and chilling night. As she makes her way across the station platform, a pair of invisible hands push her from behind into the path of an approaching train. She is only saved by the vigilance of a passing doctor. When she finally arrives, shaken, at the hall she is greeted by the two children in her care, Isabella and Eustace. There are no parents, no adults at all, and no one to represent her mysterious employer. The children offer no explanation. Later that night in her room, a second terrifying experience further reinforces the sense that something is very wrong. From the moment she rises the following morning, her every step seems dogged by a malign presence which lives within Gaudlin's walls. Eliza realizes that if she and the children are to survive its violent attentions, she must first uncover the hall's long-buried secrets and confront the demons of its past.… (més)

In this novel John Boyne recreates the setting and mood of 19th Century ghost stories with the help of some of the commonest tropes of the genre: a grieving governess, two not-so-innocent children, a haunted country mansion and pages upon pages of thick fog. The novel is enjoyable and moves at a quick pace, but the pseudo-Victorian style does not ring true. There are several contemporary writers who are better at Victorian pastiche (e.g. Sarah Waters, the late Michael Cox)and traditional supernatural tales (e.g. Susan Hill) ( )

Een gouvernante ontdekt in haar nieuwe baan in het 19e-eeuwse Engeland dat er geen volwassenen zijn in het landhuis waar ze moet zorgen voor twee kinderen.
  pwrtt | Mar 26, 2021 |
A Dickensian Victorian gothic with all the familiar trappings that comes off as affected and inauthentic, marred by annoying and anachronistic feminist asides. I guess modern writers must be woke. The mystery of what happened to the parents is sort of interesting and I was intrigued by the character of the daughter, but you're better off reading something actually written in that time period.

This ghost story is told in a 19th century manner, except that the narrator is a feminist, giving this book a modern twist. As for being scary, no, its not terribly scary. Creepy enough plot and it did keep my interest during my lunch breaks. I was a bit disappointed in it. Maybe it had too much 19th century sensibility? ( )

6. (Tie) The Darkling, by R.B. Chesterton (April 1; Pegasus)
This House is Haunted, John Boyne (October 8; Other Press)

These slow-burn ghost stories are equally good, and they have too much in common not to share a spot on this list. Both are deeply rooted in the gothic tradition, and if you like one, you’re virtually guaranteed to dig the hell out of the other. R.B. Chesterton is the alias for Carolyn Haines, the author of a cheeky series of novels about a female P.I., while John Boyne wrote The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, which Miramax made into a heart-crushing movie. But strange minds think alike. The authors did some sort of Vulcan mind meld for their respective ghost stories, resulting in a killer double-feature custom-made for fans of movies like The Others and The Orphanage.
