Slade House
Slade House | David Mitchell
By the "New York Times "bestselling author of "The Bone Clocks "and "Cloud Atlas "- A "Publishers Weekly "Literary Fiction Top 10 Pick for Fall 2015 "Keep your eyes peeled for a small black iron door." "" Down the road from a working-class British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you ll find the entrance to Slade House: a surreal place where visitors see what they want to see, including some things that should be impossible. Every nine years, the house s residents an odd brother and sister extend a unique invitation to someone who s different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it s already too late. . . . Spanning five decades, from the last days of the 1970s to the present, leaping genres, and barreling toward an astonishing conclusion, this intricately woven novel will pull you into a reality-warping new vision of the haunted house story as only David Mitchell could imagine it. Advance praise for "Slade House" "" I gulped down this novel in a single evening. Intricately connected to David Mitchell s previous books, this compact fantasy burns with classic Mitchellian energy. Painstakingly imagined and crackling with narrative velocity, it s a "Dracula" for the new millennium, a Hansel and Gretel for grownups, a reminder of how much fun fiction can be. Anthony Doerr, Pulitzer Prize winning author of "All the Light We Cannot See" David Mitchell s "Slade House" is a deranged garden of forking paths, where all the flowers are poisonous, and every escape is choked with thorns. Mitchell has long been acknowledged as one of the finest literary minds if not the finest of his generation; but he s also one of the most suspenseful, and he proves it in every gripping, vertiginous set piece. Joe Hill, "New York Times" bestselling author of "NOS4A2 "and" Horns" Sharp, fast, flat-out spooky, "Slade House" is such a hypnotic read that you are likely to miss your subway stop in order to keep reading. And by "you, " I mean "me." Daniel Handler, "New York Times" bestselling author of "We Are Pirates" and the Lemony Snicket series David Mitchell doesn t break rules so much as he proves them to be inhibitors to lively intelligent fiction. "Slade House" is a fractal offshoot crystallizing from his remarkable "The Bone Clocks, " an eerie haunted-house tale that takes as much from quantum mechanics as from traditional supernatural lore, a spellbinding chiller about an unnatural greed for life and the arrogance of power. #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Dean Koontz What can t David Mitchell do? "Slade House" is a page-burning, read-in-one-sitting, at times terrifying novel that does for the haunted house story what Henry James did for the ghost story in "The Turn of the Screw." It has all the intelligence and linguistic dazzle of a David Mitchell novel, but this one will also creep the pants off you. Adam Johnson, Pulitzer Prize winning author of "Fortune Smiles" and "The Orphan Master s Son" Fans of Mitchell s "The Bone Clocks "and" Cloud Atlas" will recognize the interlocking narrative structure and literary-fantastical bent of this new work. . . . Who doesn t want to just drink up all of Mitchell s writing? "Library Journal""

FINALLY! I‘ve had this book for four years and have meant to read it every fall season for the past three years 😬. It was great. A good companion to The Bone Clocks but can also stand on its own as a short, creepy read. 😨

BarbaraBB I liked this one better than the bone clocks! 5d

Back on the Monday Train Litsy! And today I've got my #Top6 favorite haunted house tales. Now, technically, Hunting of Hill House should be on this list, but that's just too predictable!

Also, please note that not all of these are horror or even scary. I really do love an atmospheric, but not terrifying, spooky house story.

I was thoroughly impressed with this book. It took me only two days to read and I was engrossed with the short story "chapters" that fueled the story's progression.

Two siblings survive off the souls of lured victims every nine years, and opens a great realm of an occult/fantasy theme. It is part horror, part suspense, part detective. I really enjoyes this book.

Well, I'm in Reno for a convention and 3/4 of my boxes for my booth didn't show up 😭. I'm trying to let it go, and just enjoy the sun, pool, and my #LMPBC read Slade House. Stress can wait until the show starts tomorrow... or at least that's what I keep telling myself.

Kaylamburson Thanks so much for the support, @Alfoster !! You're wonderful. 2mo
Alfoster I used to go to conventions with my mentor teacher when she published packets for AP English teachers. One summer we discovered that all the packets she‘d mailed there were in the dumpster!😳 We literally climbed in the dumpster the night before to retrieve as many as we could and run to Kinkos to make copies before morning. So I get the frustration and pulling for you!👊 2mo

So... after I finish a book and go to find another to read, it ends up being a real chore. I can't just go pick up a novel of the same genre or is similar because it doesn't always feel right. Almost like having to do the waiting period after ending a relationship.

Sometimes I will read a few pages of numerous books before I settle into the -right- read. Is it just me?

Didn‘t love it, didn‘t hate it. I liked the haunted house idea, and it was a pretty original concept. Quick read too. Halfway through, though, the pattern of the book made it feel predictable. I wanted to keep reading to learn more about the backstory of the main characters, but I wasn‘t invested in the “guests” of the house. May have missed some of the fun, as apparently this was a sequel to other Mitchell books, but I was unaware. Oh well. ⬇️

Mitchell knows how to write a good story. I liked it a lot, and I wasn't expecting some of the things that happened. However, the ending felt a little rushed. I won't give anything away here, but I will be writing a full review soon for our new blog, which can be found here: https://bookishimpulses.home.blog/ and I'll be talking about it when we record our next podcast, found everywhere you listen to podcasts (Bookish Impulses).

A compulsively readable contemporary haunted house story. It's creepy but not full on horror. I liked that the setting was both the same and completely different in every chapter.

I did not realise that this was a sequel to Bone Clocks, but luckily it is also a sequel to The 1000 Autumns of Jacob de Zuit, which I've read.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ would make a perfect Halloween read

Already started Bone Clocks!

I couldn‘t quite settle on something to read in the middle of the night. I wanted an engrossing story that wasn‘t too serious. So Slade House was ideal in that regard: it‘s horror lite. Campy even. Mitchell winks at his previous books especially The Bone Clocks but this is a stand alone novel. It‘s a short novel, and it‘s main weakness from my perspective is poor characterization. The dead have more charisma than the living. 👻 🕸🧟‍♂️

Originally written as a series of tweets, Slade House is Mitchell's take on a haunted house tale. Each chapter follows a different protagonist and reveals a bit more about Slade House's nefarious nature. It's even better if you've read The Bone Clocks.

One of the best books I‘ve read this year. Wow—creepy, dark, enthralling, mind-bending and so well-written it‘s impossible to put down. Every 9 years, the residents of Slade House invite people in for a visit. Those who accept the invitation, well, soon enough they learn the wisdom of that choice. A marvelously paced ghost story that is, as I‘ve said, one of the darkest & creepiest books I‘ve read in a long time. I loved it! (Beware small doors.)

I'm a huge David Mitchell fan and this one didn't disappoint. In essence it's a ghost story, with successive characters being pulled into the evil ambient of the titular House. What Mitchell does so well, I think, is, Murakami-like, to ground his weird goings-on in such believable reality and such relatable characters. This is Mitchell at his lightest and most playful but none the worse for that.

David Mitchell creates a “head scratcher” of a horror story in Slade House. It‘s not a long book, but it‘s got plenty of story depth and oddities. Reading Slade House is like watching a horror movie. In both cases, you just want to scream to the kind, innocent character, “Don‘t go in the room!!” But the characters always do, and that‘s the part we relish. You know you do. I do too.
