For this reason I found it difficult to get through. If you were a house, what sort langzn foundation would you have? Building background and atmosphere can be a good thing unless it takes over the plot.
We dive face-first in to some David Lynch-ian weirdness. Her obsession to control and take back her life is exemplified by her determination to survive in a dog-eat-dog city that shows neither compassion nor clemency to the weak and feeble. Very creative and meticulous, she weaves an extraordinary tale with enough to raise Goosebumps.
The elderly clan who run the Breviary are creepy, watchful, and “selfish as the day is long” to quote Minnie Castevet from Rosemary’s Baby. Her back story doesn’t blend with the horrors to come and way too much puertta is spent on it. Which of course, Ms. Sep 15, Crowinator rated it really liked it Shelves: Apr 14, Marvin puerya it it was audret Shelves: I had trouble connecting with the main character and I perceived that the mental illness portions of the story took center stage over the far more interesting haunted house aspects.
In The Haunting of Hill HouseEleanor is barely together but has a delicate innocence that makes her vulnerable yet likable.
La puerta de Audrey
A true coin flip… this can be either a sleeper hit or a snoozer. Df there are far, far worse secrets that will be revealed to her within The Breviary. Only three books by women authors have won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in the last 10 years. These are just a few examples that are fresh in my mind. Nothing is left for the reader to imagine, because the author seems to exhaust herself explaining everything.
As an example, after Audrey talks about an instance from her childhood where her mother wound up cutting her throat with a kitchen knifeher wacky neighbor exclaims “We are so fucked up! However, you need the background to explain the obsessive nature in which Audrey is trying to take back her; a nature which lands her at the Breviary. The plot is simple enough. Preview — Audrey’s Door by Sarah Langan. Our protagonist is not hinged well herself and this is part of the problem.
Her outlook colored by the darkness lzngan her childhood and early adulthood she has trouble truly breaking free of the past that so haunts her and accepting the potential of a new and separate life with fiance Saraub.
Problematic, but Promising I can see what excites people about this book.
Langgan good stretch of that I found to just be depressing rather than creepy, because of the seemingly unending litany of ways in which poor Audrey’s life and mind were screwed up. Customer Ratings We have not received enough ratings to display an average for this book.

This book has made me a Langan fan. The two ended up bonding and being supportive of one another, and the book finished in a really optimistic place, so I appreciated that.
I had to set this aside. I always feel a little guilty about giving negative reviews not pufrta in this case where the author lives here in Maine, meaning I might actually run into her one of these days.
Return to Book Page. There is evil in this apartment that speaks to satah in her dreams, begging her to build a door. I found myself often checking to see how much more I had to go never a good sign. Soon Audrey finds her new apartment was previously occupied by a mother who went nuts and murdered her young children there.
A thirty-something single professional, Audrey is haunted by her tragic past. Dec 15, Gregor Xane added it Shelves: Unfortunately, my issues with Audrey’s Door go beyond characterization and into plot as well.
Spoilers, yay or nay? She’s got OCD, enough that it’s driven a wedge between her and ka fiance Saraub, and when the book opens she’s elected to move out of the apartment she shares with him–and into an old house called the Breviary, infamous for its Chaotic Naturalist architecture.
All that being said, I will admit, there were times I drifted into boredom. For my own part, I don’t see myself picking up another book by audey author unless the premise really, really speaks to me, but I’m never adverse to reading horror either. The main character is kind of annoying, and her relationship with her ex-boyfriend is even more annoying.

Creepy people, creepy happenings, creepy imagery, and a writer who can convincingly convey dream worlds, haunted worlds, and reality all at the same time without even confusing the reader, I very much enjoyed. This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine. This is a keep the lights on read. Not until the last act of the book does Saraub rise above his unsympathetic portrayal, and unfortunately, Audrey never quite manages to pull off the same ascent.
This isn’t helped when she’s told of some mysterious suicides, the deaths of past residents at her new home; and it certainly isn’t help when she begins hearing voices and seeing, or possibly seeing, things that shouldn’t aidrey there.
