Crimson Peak – A Book Review

I’m still in a reading slump, kinda. I still can’t seem to find a book to read on my Kindle. But I did find a couple of interesting audiobooks. One of them is Crimson Peak: The Official Movie Novelization by Nancy Holder.

25241995.jpgI have never read a ghost story before (maybe as a kid but I don’t remember). I was intrigued by the movie trailer but have not watched the movie yet. I got the audiobook a couple of days ago so I decided to read (listen to) the book first and at the same time try a genre I haven’t read before.

The blurb from goodreads “When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, a young woman is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay: a place filled with secrets that will haunt her forever. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak

The book was well written, fast paced and I’m sure gives more detail on what goes on in the minds of the characters and how they feel. Having watched the trailer before I kind of had an idea of what the setting, characters and the ghosts looked like. The narrator, Imogen Church, did a good job with all the character voices and expressions, even the ghosts! I enjoyed listening to it and me being someone who does not like horror books, I thought it was good as the book was more focused on the main story line and the characters. And as my first ghost story, this was a good book to start with.
