The Good House
The Good House | Tananarive Due
The home that belonged to Angela Toussaint's late grandmother is so beloved that townspeople in Sacajawea, Washington, call it the Good House. But that all changes one summer when an unexpected tragedy takes place behind its closed doors...and the Toussaint's family history -- and future -- is dramatically transformed. Angela has not returned to the Good House since her son, Corey, died there two years ago. But now, Angela is finally ready to return to her hometown and go beyond the grave to unearth the truth about Corey's death. Could it be related to a terrifying entity Angela's grandmother battled seven decades ago? And what about the other senseless calamities that Sacajawea has seen in recent years? Has Angela's grandmother, an African American woman reputed to have "powers," put a curse on the entire community? A thrilling exploration of secrets, lies, and divine inspiration, "The Good House" will haunt readers long after its chilling conclusion.

My second Tananarive Due book and damn, she's so good. This was creepy and tragic, and yeah it's 700+ pages but it never felt that long. So glad I have a bunch more by this author to read still. 🖤

I‘m so thrilled to have found this author! Spooky, reminded me very much of Stephen King, in that it‘s a long book, but it reads like it‘s at the climax almost the entire book. Robin Miles narration was fabulous as always, for audiobook lovers. I bought another book from the same author as soon as I finished!

Told in a non-linear format between the 1920s, 2001, & current time, Due takes the reader on a generational adventure full of suicide, possession, evil omens, & voodoo.

In the tradition of American folklore mixed with African/Creole mysticism, this action packed horror novel is original & left me wanting more. Due‘s prose & her gift of storytelling is top notch. For someone who has never read her before, I recommend you start with this classic.

The Good House | Tananarive Due

SPOILER!!!

My favorite moment when Tariq and Angela/Marie are having their final words and Tariq realizes he sees no future for himself. Still, adamant to kill Angela/Marie, he receives a surprise when a gunshot comes from behind. No matter how many times I read this, I want to stand up and cheer.

Now, it‘s the calm after the storm where Angela has successfully connected with the lwa, Papa Legba, and her Grandma Marie. Such a bittersweet end. ❤️

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

SPOILER

Before the showdown, I love how we get a glimpse from Corey‘s perspective when he & Angela discussed the recovered ring.

In the 1st chapter, we only gain Angela‘s perspective during their conversation. In the later part, through Corey‘s perspective, we learn that his suicide was due to the Baka who disguised itself as his love interest, Becka.

I nearly cried the 1st time I read this, realizing he sacrificed himself to save his mom.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

The final showdown, alone in the woods with a jammed gun. Tariq might be ridden by a Baka with the goal to destroy Angela, but Angela now has her Gramma Marie riding her. 💩 is getting real!

blurb

I‘m down to the last two chapters. The final showdown between Angela, Tariq, and Miles. The suspense is damn good.

I love this scene!

*spoiler*

It‘s when Angela finds her Gramma Marie‘s secret room behind the stove. The one that has a full fledge altar with dolls, skulls, and the whole nine yards.

Weaponxgirl Yup, I loved that bit too. I liked all the descriptions of ritual and alters. 1y

At last, the revelation that Corey skimmed through Marie Toussaint‘s spellbooks and only read the most appealing parts to magically retrieve his mother‘s ring. Too bad he didn‘t read more closely, he could have avoided the consequences.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

I love how the whole book is spelled out to Angela by Art, Liza‘s husband. Even though his dialogue is a summery, it‘s presented in the tongue of rich folklore.

Without giving spoilers, yeah, it‘s obvious Angela‘s inherited ring is more than jewelry. It‘s also obvious that the good house is surrounded by positive & negative spirits. But what still floors me is how these spirits can affect others by objects left on the property, like Tariq‘s van.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned

If a movie is ever made of this, I want Idris Elba and Janelle Monae as the lead roles.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned

It‘s been so long since I‘ve read this book that I forgot how badly Tariq needed a boot in the ass. Such a trifling man.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

I really have always loved the glance that was provided into Marie‘s diary. Personally, Tananarive Due could write a follow up to this book as nothing but the diary of Marie Toussaint and I would gobble up its richness.

This was good! I spent the last 65 pages reading a chapter then putting it down and telling myself to breath. I don't like a lot of horror as I sometimes find that people like King add nastiness on top of something that's already scary and then I don't end up creeped out but just disgusted instead. This had the balance, horrific stuff happens but it felt measured to work within the story. Not daring me to see how much I can take just because. Love

Reading tip of the day. When you get your reading groove back after a slump don't decide that a nightshift is the best time to start that horror novel you wanted to read. Paranoia may follow and every sound on that monitor your listening to will sound threatening.
Also doing checks down dark corridors will be much harder. #whatwasithinking

BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

The evils of the land have such whimsical innocence, making wishes come true. No matter if it is a missing ring, or someone praying for their crush to love them, all can be traced back to the entity that was exorcised in the 20s.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

One of my favorite parts has happened. It‘s the scene when the men are cutting down a dead tree on Angela‘s property. While the women are inside making them sandwiches, Liza, who is the granddaughter of the sheriff in the prologue, is explaining how Angela‘s grandmother exercised an evil entity from the child who was brought to the good house.

Scurvygirl I started this book awhile back and didn‘t get back to it. Is it really good? 1y
BookwormOfTheDamned It is. I‘m beyond halfway through. I‘m not very interested in the lead character‘s ex-husband, but it all comes full circle. 1y

The Good House | Tananarive Due

We have come to a flashback that regards some backstory on Corey prior to his suicide. He has bonded with a kid named Shawn who has introduced him to a music group called “The Orishas”.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

After coming to terms with Corey‘s death, Angela returns to her vacation home where the tragedy occurred (her late grandmother‘s house). Upon returning, she has met up with two old friends Naomi & Miles. She has recently learned an acquaintance of her son‘s killed himself by stepping in front of a truck. I find it interesting how suicide surrounds her. Angela‘s Mom killed herself, Corey killed himself, & Corey‘s friends did the same.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

The anger that Angela harbors against her ex-husband, Tariq, is devastatingly strong. This poor woman has been through Hell and back. Especially with her son dying during a party she didn‘t want to host in the first place.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

The nightmare is spawned from a heirloom ring that belonged to Marie and was handed down to Angela.

Corey has faked a home robbery to steal his mother‘s ring so a girl he likes can temporarily wear it. When she refuses to return the ring, some old school magic is used without considering the repercussions.

The Good House | Tananarive Due

July 4 , 2001, 72 yrs later, Marie Toussant‘s descendant, Angela is hosting a party although she hates hosting. Her son, Corey is somewhat rebellious towards her, although he isn‘t entirely disrespectful. Something wicked is brewing as this party takes place in the house where Marie and John once lived.

Re-reading this year‘s later, I forgot how much I loved the characters.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned
The Good House | Tananarive Due

Such a rich look on the past in its prologue. Red John and Marie seem so down to earth and magical, I wish I shared the shack with them.

When Marie‘s healing powers are required against John‘s better judgement, we know a serpent is soon to find its way into Eden. This is presented in the scenario of Marie needing to heal a girl that could easily be demonically possessed.

As you can clearly see, the actual TBR considerations for #24in48 are indeed ridiculous! I'm a total mood reader, though, so I think I have some good picks to hit any potential craving. The left side are regular new release wanna reads and the right side are my various challenge wanna reads. And there's more, like the Tananarive Due title, on my ereader - #catsoflitsy supervisor seems to approve. And I think I've got enough for the full 24 hrs 🤓

Mehhhhh. It had so much potential. But then the switching of point of views and the tediousness of the story made it fall flat - for the record totally ok with diff points of view just not when you put in random POV from random characters randomly. Also the ending was super clean and wrapped up with a bow.

Breakfast and a book. Yogurt with orange slices and trail mix, another of my meh oatmeal/banana muffins and honey apple cider vinegar tea. I'm still in a reading slump, so I'm trying to get back to my usual routine, which is read for an hour in the mornings before doing any editing/work/errands. Apparently I either read ALL THE TIME and never get my work done, or work all the time and don't read.

Why isn't Tananarive Due a superstar in the horror genre?! I absolutely loved Due's My Soul to Keep (book 1 of her African Immortal series), and The Good House is just as amazing. Her stories are sweeping and full of depth, with interesting historical elements. They are dramatic and fantastical, yet somehow so realistic. More than anything, her books are fun to read. There's mystery, voodoo, and a ton of tension. 5/5 stars!

BookishFeminist Due is amazing. I don't know why she isn't more popular either- I love all her stuff! 3y

Headed back home from NJ this weekend! We're listening to my current audiobook The Good House on the drive home & it's suitably spooky for night driving. ??

But since audiobooks & highway driving makes for boring pictures, here's our dinner. We went to The Melting Pot for fondue with my best college friends to celebrate mine & others' 30th bdays! This is bacon cheddar jalapeño fondue. My favorite was the dark chocolate with Bailey's. ?????

Definitely one of the strongest horror novels I've read. Great character development, strong mythology, solid writing. This isn't a creep you out kind of book, as you learn from the first chapter. This is a horror novel where the consequences are troubling. It's not a fun read. The stakes are high. But it's worth it. Audio also recommended.

And for #Recommendsday, I highly recommend this perfect book for the scary season, about a sinister house and a woman seeking to end its supernatural evil. This is probably the closest thing to a Stephen King novel that I've ever read. - @Liberty #GiveaScaryBook
