    David Mitchell does his usual thing of writing a few short stories, gluing them together, and calling it a novel He gets away with it because he is just so extravagantly readable, and Slade House is no different a hugely enjoyable ghost story which I infer seems to build on various conventions established in The Bone Clocks, which I haven t yet read.The first story here is set in 1979, and subsequent chapters advance in nine year intervals until we reach October 2015 all of them first per David Mitchell does his usual thing of writing a few short stories, gluing them together, and calling it a novel He gets away with it because he is just so extravagantly readable, and Slade House is no different a hugely enjoyable ghost story which I infer seems to build on various conventions established in The Bone Clocks, which I haven t yet read.The first story here is set in 1979, and subsequent chapters advance in nine year intervals until we reach October 2015 all of them first person narratives which follow the ...

    I picked up Slade House with the idea of reading something creepy and perhaps slightly unusual before Halloween As it turned out, it was nightmarish and positively bizarre I was mostly entertained while reading this, but as I now try to write my review, I realize that not much of this has stuck with me after a mere two weeks Fortunately, this is not the kind of book that I want to examine too closely nor do I want to give much of it away to future readers So, I ll share just a few thoughts o I picked up Slade House with the idea of reading something creepy and perhaps slightly unusual before Halloween As it turned out, it was nightmarish and positively bizarre I was mostly entertained while reading this, but as I now try to write my review, I realize that not much of this has stuck with me after a mere two weeks Fortunately, this is not the kind of book that I want to examine too closely nor do I want to give much of it away to future readers So, I ll share just a few thoughts on this one.Slade House, located in Slade Alley, is definitely the stuff of freaky dreams and Mitchell masterfully sketches a place that I would shrink from passing by even in the light of day As described by one of its unfortunate young visitors,Slade Alley s the narrowest alley I ve ever seen It slices between two houses, then vanishes left after thirty paces or so There s a small black iron door, set into the brick wall It s ...
