9780062223203: Rooms

Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family-bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna-have arrived for their inheritance. But the Walkers are not alone. Prim Alice and the cynical Sandra, long dead former residents bound to the house, linger within its claustrophobic walls. Jostling for space, memory, and supremacy, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself-in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of a light bulb. The living and dead are each haunted by painful truths that will soon surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide-with cataclysmic results.

Review:

'Oliver has a terrific talent for old-fashioned storytelling, nailing your attention from the first sentence.' ( The Times)

Oliver has a caustic sense of humour, splicing the shattering emotional chaos with pitch-black comedy ( Metro)

A smoky and realistic ghost story that subverts cliche...this satisfying novel will be enjoyed by Oliver's fans and bring new ones to the fold. ( Kirkus Reviews)

Imaginative and engaging...cleverly imagined and plotted. ( Star Tribune)

This book grips hard - it's impossible to put down, and there is no lull - the pacing is perfect. (The Book Bag)

A chilling ghost story, and much, much more: ROOMS is a magnificent gothic fugue on the themes of longing and buried secrets (Lev Grossman, bestselling author of The Magicians Trilogy)

A sensational novel that easily glides between the normal and the paranormal. At times humorous, at times heartbreaking, ROOMS is always emotionally resonant and, despite the presence of ghosts, very, very real. (Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street)

Book Description:

Compulsive and powerful ghost story narrated by two spirits who inhabit the walls of an old house. It's a tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways.
