    One thought on “House”

    1. I keep practically every book I ever readI didn't keep this one though. (Update: I was going to leave it at the two lines above since I'm not particularly fond of a giving a book a bad review, but I just can't let this one get away without giving it a damn good spanking. And so)I've read a lot of bad books in my time. And I've probably read worse that this one. But whenever someone asks me what the most terrible book I ever read was, 'House' inevitably springs to mind. To this day I still can't [...]

    2. Dull. Dull, dull, dull, and did I mention, so very dull?*After having car trouble (read: “run over a bunch of nails planted in the road”), an estranged couple find themselves in a B&B type establishment in the middle of nowhere, where they, and a second couple, are promptly creeped out by the backwoods owners and informed of the fact that Scary Killer will be coming after them, cause they’re basically sacrifices. I didn’t find it at all suspenseful, the writing was not notable, it ga [...]

    3. I thought that a collaboration of two of my favorite authors would produce an excellent work of fiction! I was so wrong. This was just a horror novel with a muddled message. I was so disgusted with the plot that I actually put the book down, lost it for over a month, found it while looking for something else, and finally finished it by sheer willpower.WARNING - SPOILER ALERTThese guys could have really written something worthwhile, a book with a great lesson taught ever-so-subtly. Instead, they [...]

    4. I have never done a review on GoodReads before, but I believe this book merits itThis is the worst book I have ever read. I'm not just saying that because I disagree with the themes that this story was based on; it was written badly. It was 3rd grade-level bad. It reminded me that any book in the Goosebumps series would be a welcoming divergence, and I'm not exaggerating. Whenever a story has magic or supernatural forces, it needs to have rules so that there is clarity in what is happening throu [...]

    5. Ugh! When I read the back of this book, it had such potential. I thought it was going to be super creepy. Unbeknown to me though, I had never read either of these authors, and honestly it was a big long religious package mixed with horrible writing. It's a collaboration between two authors and it's like when you were in school and a teacher would have you start a story and pass it on to someone next to you. You didn't know the characters, or anything, you just had to move on the plot; and they N [...]

    6. I picked this book up from the library, thumbed through a few pages, and decided to preview it by reading the first chapter. I had other books I thought I should get through first, before I could start another. So I previewed it.Fifteen chapters later, I had to put the book down because it was getting late.House is an amazing thriller about survival through not just this world, but the next. It's really one of the few books that actually had my mind running.An excellent book by far. I recommend [...]

    7. It's my first time to read a book from Dekker and/or Peretti so I don't have any expectations whatsoever to what will I read. I've just started reading the book and hope for the best.You can guess my hope didn't amount to what I've got in the end. I'm disappointed with this novel. It started with a generic setup and ends with a deus ex machina. The in-between is kind of good and bad at the same time.I've been entertained with some parts. I've got scared, even thrilled and emphatized with the cha [...]

    8. Huh. That was rather different.How does one describe House? Weird? Creepy? Intriguing? Mind-bending? Unnerving?It's all those things, really. I don't think there's any way to define a Dekker book. (Because yes, this read MUCH more like a Dekker book than a Peretti one, in my opinion.)Annnnd that's probably why my thoughts are as jumbled as trail mix right now. Okay, so the creepy factor? VERY HIGH. Don't do what I did and read this while pulling an all-nighter, folks. It will freak you out to se [...]

    9. For all of my reviews, visit theblondelikesbooks.wordpressHouse is a supernatural thriller about seven people who end up in a house together. Shortly after arriving, odd things start happening and getting progressively worse. It culminates when a tin can is thrown into the house with three rules for the game. 1. God came to my house and I killed him 2. I will kill anyone who does to my house and I killed God3. Give me one dead body, and I might let rule two slideNow everyone in the house has to [...]

    10. I have read books by Frank Peretti that I really liked. The Visitation is one of my favorite books. There are other books By Mr. Peretti that I don't care for at all and some that fall in between. On the other hand I've never read a book by Mr. Dekker that I liked. I've wanted to, I've tried to but I just didn't care for them.So, here's another I just didn't care for. Personally (and of course the opinions here are my own) I think the book fails as both theological teaching and horror. I appreci [...]

    11. Why, why did I waste time reading this book when I could have beenOh, I don't know, scrubbing the bathroom floor with a toothbrush? It's one of those crappy horror "thrillers" that make you feel kind of dirty when you're done. I do admit to finishing the book-- a fast read despite its gargantuan hardcover size-- but only because it held my interest JUST ENOUGH to wonder if it would improve. Like when they introduced Susan's character, I was muttering to myself, "Well, maybe this will liven thing [...]

    12. So, I made the mistake of only bringing this book on a week-long camping trip. It was a really big mistake.This book was dull, badly written, and forced. And that's the good stuff I have to say about it. The characters were so badly handled that I had trouble reading it. They had no depth and could have been left out of the story with no major impact. It deals horribly with abuse victims and is an insult to published works. I wish I could have rated this 0/5 but unfortunately that isn't a choice [...]

    13. "House" follows a group of people who get stranded overnight in a house full of maniacs, beset by a crazy guy in a metal mask. Only, it's not about that, really. What it's REALLY about is demonising anyone who doesn't conform to authors Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti's set of beliefs and inflicting ridiculous punishments and judgement on people for being simple, flawed human beings. The story primarily follows Jack and Stephanie, a young couple whose marriage is on the rocks after a tragedy they b [...]

    14. Embarking on a new book regime is a little like jumping into the deep end of the pool; you’re never quite sure if you’re gonna sink or swim. I guess that’s how I feel about Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker’s religious fiction novel House is a definitely the unworn path that I do not usual take. I liked the horror of this novel. It involved an ominous evil force within a house in the middle of nowhere. There are main elements of this book that I didn’t like, but the one thing that I really [...]

    15. creepy? yes good message with this twisty and complex allegory that Ted Dekker always gives? yes did Hannah scream when she went to watch the trailer for the film adaption (and had a thought about watching it)? yes is she watching it? NO (not now at least) maybe with a friend. maybe.

    16. Wow am I furious at having been so blatantly mislead by the summary of this book. So let me give you the actual run down. If you enjoy books by Stephen Kingn't read this because you will question your life choices until you die and also wonder how some people ever even get their books published. If you HATE books by Stephen King because you wish that he didn't know how to write believable characters or progress plot lines in any way or write stories people actually want to read and you also wish [...]

    17. Picked up this book as a result of watching the associated movie one night. The movie had a lot of potential, so I thought the book would be interesting as well. What I found was a poorly written, insipid horror story with a thinly veiled Christian agenda.I tried my best to power through the book, even though I had lost interest in the first couple of chapters, but finally had to just put it down for good about 3/4 of the way through it. The line that finally did me in was "he pulled out one of [...]

    18. House reminded me of a mix between the movies Saw, The Strangers and Vacancy. This book was a great read, full of scary moments and suspense. I like a good horror story and this one delivered. Word to the wise, don't read this while home alone or at night.

    19. I have only one word for this book: BO-RING! Well, okay maybe there are two: BO-RING and CONFUSING!! But let's start with the basics. First and foremost: SPOILER ALERT, please read no further if you don't want to be spoiled.Jack and Stephanie are married. They are driving through the middle of a rural area to go see their marriage counselor. You get the feeling that something really bad happened in their relationship but you don't quite know what. Jack is bitter and resentful toward his wife, wh [...]

    20. La luz entró en las tinieblasy la oscuridad no la entendió.Primer libro que leo de Frank Peretti y Ted Dekker. Me gustó mucho. Está muy simplemente escrito, es ameno y fluido. Tiene mucho diálogo y las descripciones son brillantes. La casa empieza de manera intensa, rápida e intrigante. Mientras avanzás en la trama la historia se vuelve cada vez más estremecedora. Sin embargo, tiene algunas pocas partes que son monótonas y repetitivas.Los personajes me hubieran gustado que estén más d [...]

    21. This book deserves five stars because it has a great mixture of suspense and mystery. There is even a little romance! It will keep you on the edge of your seat! If you didn't understand the book then you didn't pay attention while reading it. Ted Dekker is a wonderful author who gives his books Christian themes and backgrounds without making it super religious. Not that anything is wrong with a very religious book. The theme of this book is light defeats darkness. The light being Jesus and the d [...]

    22. There was nothing they could do they had to go in. But once they were in they couldn’t get out. It was low intensity, low action and it was pleasent to read. You know how you dont always want a book with all action, all drama, just a good mystery with nice amount of everything. It was a good book. But if you want a higher mystery, a good chase its not this. But i wanted a calm mystery with some good twists and it was perfect for that.

    23. I wish I would have researched this a little before listening to it; I didn't realize crazy people wrote it. I expected a horror story a la "Saw" and lots of moral dilemmas, full of questionable actions and mind games. Instead, I got a plot with a lot of potential that rapidly deteriorated into a harpy-like shrieking that christianity was the only way.Nothing about the plot made any sense - black smoke, demons, pentagrams, the "house" that your own evil creates… hammering home again and again [...]

    24. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I picked up this book. I knew it should be good, because both of these authors have established themselves as excellent writes, specifically for Christian audiences. Though I could tell by the development of the storyline and plot that this book was specifically aimed at both Christian and non-Christian audiences, it still had much of the feel of a Christian book.That being said, it is definitely better written than most Christian fiction and would probabl [...]

    25. I was really looking forward to this book and was excited to read it, but this book was not really what I had expected at all. Well I should say the premise of the book actually was, but it all came together in a way I did not expect. There were a lot of characters involved and I gotta say I did not really like any of them. Hard to decide who was actually an antagonist or protagonist.I loved the air of mystery that surrounded the house, and that was what kept me going on the book. I thought that [...]

    26. There should be an option on this site called, "Accidentally Read." You know when you watch a glass vase fall- and in that split second right before it hits the floor, you're like, "Oh no! That's going to be horrible when it shatters." I spent the entire time reading this book with that in mind. Shallow characters battled with one dimensional personal problems while being chased around by swamp people, a redneck in a tin can, and a little girl that happened to be Jesus. The entire book was like [...]

    27. No sabía que esperar de este libro, porque terminó en mis manos gracias a una amiga, pero tengo que admitir que no es lo que imaginaba que sería. Me atrapó al inicio, tiene un arranque fuerte que te hace devorar las primeras doscientas páginas sin detenerte un segundo pero ya a mediados del libro me causaba más risa que espanto. Hay muchos aspectos que me parecen poco desarrollados, como por ejemplo la calidad de los personajes (no hay historia que funcione sin personajes que generen ciert [...]

    28. I was so excited to read this book ! I wanted something to put me in the Halloween mood I have to say I was disappointed with it. First I hated all the characters I didn't care if they died or not. I was reading the book but I wasn't feeling anything! And the end was just annoying for me. I liked the concept but that was pretty much all that I liked about it.

    29. House has been on my shelf for a couple of years, and it was one of the novels I didn’t make it to on last year’s spooky October list. I made it first this year to be sure I actually got to it, and I’m sorry that I bothered. I read and liked Frank Peretti’s Veritas Project novels when I was younger, but they in no way prepared me for this. There’s a lot of bitterness ahead; you may want to bring an umbrella. Spoilers will be clearly marked. Trigger warning: rape.Two couples find themse [...]

    30. No sé que cochinada acabo de leer pero si sé que perdí 3 días de mi vida leyendo esta "cosa"' el final se veía venir desde el principio por qué hello está implicito en el título, eso sin contar todos los clichés de libro y película de terror que contiene y que en lugar de dar miedo me dio risa y claro el rollo religioso del final por qyeos pecadores siempre deben de pagar. Una porquería que nadie debe leer así que si llega a las manos de alguien que esté leyendo esta reseña, corra, [...]
