I'm currently reading this in e-book form on my Kindle. Has anyone else read this book? What are your thoughts on it? Do you like or dislike this book?
Synopsis: Rolf Rudolph Deutsch is going die. But when Deutsch, a wealthy magazine and newpaper publisher, starts thinking seriously about his impending death, he offers to pay a physicist and two mediums, one physical and one mental, $100,000 each to establish the facts of life after death.
Dr. Lionel Barrett, the physicist, accompanied by the mediums, travel to the Belasco House in Maine, which has been abandoned and sealed since 1949 after a decade of drug addiction, alcoholism, and debauchery. For one night, Barrett and his colleagues investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townfolks refer to it as the Hell House.
I think I read the book when I was much younger, but it's been years. I watch the movie based on the novel, The Legend of Hell House pretty much yearly for The 31 Nights of Halloween here. Love the movie, so I'd imagine if I re-read the book I'd love it as much or more. Matheson is a great story teller, especially of horror. Hope you like it!
I just finished reading this book last night and I can say that I enjoyed it. The book didn't go as I would have though initially, however, I can't say that I am surprised by the ending now that I look back at the book. I'm going to have to watch the movie now (if I can find it) because occupant has peaked my interest about the movie.
