I found this in our library's book sale room. It is clearly for a younger audience, but with the "Point" imprint, I thought it might be on par with some of the old Point Horror titles I've been reading.Lucy and Hugh are a sister and brother who awake one night to a host of creepy sounds and find themselves in a house that isn't quite theirs. Their bedroom is the same, but the rest of the house is full of furniture they don't recognize, and there seems to be an invisible barrier preventing them f [...]
A book that jumped right into the action and never slowed down. It has a crazy surprise and the end!!!!
I first read this one when I was about13 or 14 (ish). My best friend and I were really into those dime-a-dozen, so numerous they were probably ghost-written paperback paranormal novels targeting teen girls in the early 90s. We devoured dozens of them, and, after exclaiming how "freaky" they were, forgot them. However, All On A Winter's Day was one of those rare cases where the story actually stuck in my head, at least in part. All I could remember was it was a ghost story with a twist (view spoi [...]
I found this on a YA shelf in our library and I would have to say it is misfiled. It is definitely juvenile material. This is the story of Hugh and Lucy who awaken in their home one cold winter's day, but everything is amiss. Their room looks the same, but the rest of the house is cold, essentially unfurnished and silent. Silent until they notice two other children in the house. They are there with their aunt, a cold red-haired woman, who appears to hate the children. As Hugh and Lucy try to fig [...]
I still really enjoy this book, but knowing the ending made it far less mind-blowing than when I read it as a little girl. I also hadn't noticed it was a British author before.I was surprised which visuals have stuck with me for all these years. The images of the red berries on the aunt's white fur and white snow were indelibly marked on my brain. I had remembered them as raspberries, which was wrong, but it's the visual that stuck with me. This book was another book that got me hooked on readin [...]
I read this book as a child in one afternoon. I literally couldn't put it down. It is a really clever ghost story, akin to The Others. As an adult it's quite a shallow tale, but if you read it as a child it is really spine tingling.
I really wanted to like this one, and it was going so well, then it just became sort of muddled. It was creepy and it did chill me, and it also made me sad, but it just wasn't great.
creeped me the hell out!
This was basically that Nicole Kidman movie, The Others.
I didn't really like it. The characters, especially Hugh, are kind of annoying. I think I might have liked it better if I was younger.
Think others ( the movie with Kidman) meets mostly ghostly.
