Review: Welcome to the Dark House
Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Justin Blake is having a contest. Individuals can enter by writing an essay about their worst nightmare in 1000-words or less. Seven essays will be selected and the winners will receive a behind the scenes look at his newest project. The winners include Ivy, who dreams about the man who killed her parents; Parker, who won’t go in water due to his fear of sea serpents; Garth, a horror film fan and a few others with their own quirks. The group quickly realizes that the seventh member of the group is missing and their time away with Justin Blake includes more than what they were expecting.
Welcome to the Dark House is a scary book on par with the Scary Movie series. The fear is only surface deep for the reader, yet they will still follow the characters through the events taking place. Readers should not expect a thriller. This is more of a tongue in cheek … you know what is coming next, read. Stolarz does not create very deep characters since there are so many main characters, yet they are still fun to read about. A fun book that would make a great escape read.
