The Little Stranger
The Little Stranger | Sarah Waters
From the multi-award-winning and bestselling author of The Night Watch and Fingersmith comes an astonishing novel about love, loss, and the sometimes unbearable weight of the past.In a dusty post-war summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to see a patient at lonely Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the once grand house is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its garden choked with weeds. All around, the world is changing, and the family is struggling to adjust to a society with new values and rules.Roddie Ayres, who returned from World War II physically and emotionally wounded, is desperate to keep the house and what remains of the estate together for the sake of his mother and his sister, Caroline. Mrs. Ayres is doing her best to hold on to the gracious habits of a gentler era and Caroline seems cheerfully prepared to continue doing the work a team of servants once handled, even if it means having little chance for a life of her own beyond Hundreds.But as Dr. Faraday becomes increasingly entwined in the Ayreses lives, signs of a more disturbing nature start to emerge, both within the family and in Hundreds Hall itself. And Faraday begins to wonder if they are all threatened by something more sinister than a dying way of life, something that could subsume them completely.Both a nuanced evocation of 1940s England and the most chill-inducing novel of psychological suspense in years, The Little Stranger confirms Sarah Waters as one of the finest and most exciting novelists writing today.

At the heart of the story is Hundreds Hall, a decaying mansion which may or may not be haunted by evil spirits. The foreshadowing of the horror, fascinating narrative and memorable ending makes this a #haunting read. Loved it!

One of the challenges for #thereadingrush #readathon is to read and watch a book to movie adaptation. I finished The Little Stranger book yesterday and have already posted my review. Today I watched the movie, and now I think I actually appreciate the book even more.

Since I'm a blogger now I guess, I decided to blog about both! 😊

The book is well-written and atmospheric. I love the setting: 1940s English countryside and a decaying, historical family manor. I enjoyed the pervading sense of unease of this gothic story, but I was expecting more something twisty at the end...the revelation of the little stranger was very subtlety done.

My first book finished for #thereadingrush #readathon: this was my read & watch a book to movie adaptation for the challenge.

I‘ve been cruising through this audiobook today for #thereadingrush #readathon but now it‘s nighttime outside and all of the sudden the story is freaking me out and it might be time to switch books until tomorrow. 😳

Once I finish it, I will be watching the movie, since this is for the read the book/watch the movie challenge prompt.

I‘m guessing I will also be watching the movie during the day.

Had a tough time choosing my #top6reads of 2019 because I guess I haven‘t read much this year that‘s really blown me away.

Just noticed that these are at 50/50 when it comes to author gender, though, so that‘s exciting as I‘ve been really working hard to read more books by women over the last few years.

Another amazing Sarah Waters novel. I'm trying not to inhale them all at once, but I can't seem to help myself. If you love creepy old English estates that are quite possibly haunted, love gone wrong, and ordinary people driven to madness, then you will love this book.

3.5⭐️ The extra half star for the narration, Vance is terrific!

The story had all the gothic elements to be fantastic: big crumbling house, atmospheric, ghostly unexplainable goings-on, mental illness (or is it?) but it kinda fizzled out a bit. I was expecting some kind of brilliant twist at the end.

I do admire the feminist strength of one of the MCs - resisting societal expectations.

Everything else about the writing was very good.

Cathythoughts Nice review! Yes al lot of my Bookclub ( who had read S Waters before) were disappointed! It was my first by her & I loved it (edited) 6mo

Once I got over expecting this to be something it‘s not, I really liked this book. A country doctor rapidly becomes entwined in the lives of a formerly wealthy family in post WWII England. Is this a haunting or is it all in their heads? The book is a slow burn almost to a fault, except that I had a hard time putting it down. Sarah Waters captures the voices of her historic setting perfectly. My first Waters but definitely not my last.

Tamra I just 10 min ago started the audio. I like the narration! 6mo

I really enjoyed this one. A little gothic horror in the spring always feels right, y‘know? Taking place in post-war England, it‘s a tale of class and change and possible ghosties. Is the house haunted or is the family insane? What are the doctor‘s real motivations? What do we do when our way of life is no longer sustainable? I love Sarah Waters and this book may not have had historical lesbians, but it was still bloody good. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

So like, this isn‘t so much a haunted house story as it‘s about an evil doctor destroying a family from within, right? (Don‘t answer that, I‘m just recording my guess so I can come back later and see if I was correct.)

This was my first time reading Sarah Waters, and while it was a reeeally slow burn, I was completely hooked. I generally loved the characterisation even though the narrator, Dr Farraday, infuriated me at times (which I think is rather the point of his character)! What impressed me most, however, is how Waters crafts the specificity of this period, especially with respect to wealth and class within a shifting social landscape.

erzascarletbookgasm I loved it too. I‘ll recommend this as your next Waters 7mo

I loved this book. There‘s something unsettling and eerie about the mansion and the story, especially the ending, but it‘s not a ghost story. It‘s slow burn and if you submit to its unhurried pace, you‘ll be rewarded with something elegant and mysterious.

Beautiful writing that set an almost palpable scene, but the action was not thrilling or even that scary. Fifteen loooooong chapters, and approximately three major events occur, and only in one scene out of alllllllll that did I feel a slight shudder. Great writing but the story was just boring as heck.

This book was really good and creepy! Is the house really haunted or is the family just going mad? Or is someone doing this to them?

It was slow to start, but it picked up and I wanted to keep reading.

The chapters were really long. Only 15 chapters in a 500+ page book. Also trigger warning for dog death. 🐶😔😬

Absolutely a 5 Star read. 1940‘s England ... an old estate is crumbling. And a local doctor becomes strangely entangled with the estates family. It was not a typical page turner.. more that it was always on my mind & I couldn‘t wait to get back to it. Subtle / strong/ eerie... an unnerving read. Very brilliant! One of my favorite books this year. I look forward to more Sarah Waters ( I look forward to the film next week too )
