ISBN:  none
Why Read?: For Fun

Thoughts: I read Gad's Hall over a decade ago and really enjoyed it.  It was a perfect scary gothic.  The Haunting of Gad's Hall sounds like it should be even more chilling, but it wasn't.  The beginning was promising and the second part was what it should be, but the majority of the first part (and the book) was the overly-detailed backstory for the house with no haunting whatsoever.
