Michael S. Jan 11, 2013 Kimberly Robello rated it really liked it. This book is BASED on true events. I read this book because I heard the author, Darren Fitzgerald, being interviewed on the radio. His story sounded scary and interesting. On the radio he stated that the events in the book are true except for his speculation or details on the deaths prior to his moving into the house, if I remember correctly. I'm not completely convinced, but I do believe at least some of these things did happen. Note: these are all the books on Goodreads for this author.

Sounds of banter, jostling, and jokes created a dull roar of a calm ocean.

The moonlight illuminated our campgrounds in a gentle wash of luminescent green, highlighting the faces of the gathered troops. I walked amongst the men and women for some hours. Most of the troops didn't recognize me without my armor.

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American fiction writer, whose works helped to illustrate the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age. While he achieved popular success, fame, and fortune in his lifetime, . . While he achieved popular success, fame, and fortune in his lifetime, he did not receive much critical acclaim until after his death. Perhaps the most notable member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s, Fitzgerald is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

This is a pretty scary book. It gives examples of why the paranormal should not be messed with especially with Ouiga boards or challenging a spirit like a group of teenagers might do for kicks or entertainment. There were so many negative things that happened in this house to any of the residents. Some of the residents lived years in the house to one couple not even finishing the night in the house. Every family had bad things happened to them. What was scary was that the entity would follow them, even several miles away. The author did a good job explaining what happened in this house and also what happened after his family moved out. There is even a chapter at the end of the book of a resident who lived in the house after his family moved out. Many years later this late teenager was an adult and came to a book signing of the author and told him that he had lived in this house on Hurley Pond Road. The author decided to include his chapter which had many of the same occurrences happen to them like slamming doors all the way up to being touched, pushed or grabbed. I really would not recommend this book to anyone who does not like graphic writing. If even half the things were true, it is a horrible thing for any family to go through without being affected in a very bad way. It is a good thing to learn that if you are looking for an old house that is a reasonable price and there has been quite a turnover in the residents to look into the history or ask someone who knew about it before buying it.

I am not sure why this book is getting such high ratings. The writing itself is mediocre and that is being generous. I bought this book because I grew up on Hurley Pond Rd and my mother still lives there so it was cool to see a book published about my street. We even think we know which house Darren is talking about but my mother knew one of the families who lived there before Darren and says it does not make sense.
The problem I found with the book was the constant overstating of things that happened in or around the house. I feel like with a better editor some of the spelling mistakes would have been captured and the book could have read more smoothly. I agree with some of the readers that if the book had been longer it may have helped flesh out some of the story rather than just throw thoughts at us for some families and then give full detail about his own.
The other thing that bothered me is the geography in the story. I wish he had stayed truer to what the area and house had looked like. It is an interesting road with many things and a highway just beyond the woods. The pond is at one end of the road and there is actually more than one Hurley Pond Rd in Wall.
Overall, for a first book I think it is a great effort. I know that is kind of backhanded, but I liked the tone of the story and the idea and hope Darren continues to write.

This book is written as a mostly first-person account of life in the haunted house with terrifying poltergeist and physical activity, including repeated, horrifying assaults on the family members. This story is allegedly true. It is one of the most graphic, scary books I have read. . . but I had trouble with believability----could generation after generation commit evil acts, including a sister imprisoning her younger sibling to starve in the attic of the house, jealous of her life and engagement?

I found it far-fetched, more in the line of Jay Anson. . . and also question the trend it seems to follow of recent "true" ghost stories: a setting in the late 1960s to late 1970s. . . almost an "Amityville" revisited experience. The book has horrifying moments, yes. What it doesn't have is good writing, nor does it make you really care much about the characters. . . I wondered where the author got all the information about the prior owners and history---when it doesn't seem they were published stories or facts.. . . the grammar was poor in many places and the construction, plot outline, and timeline were a bit muddled as well, leading me to believe this may have been self-published, but definitely published without much editing.

The book provides thrills, but I doubted the validity of the story, mainly due to the writing.

As someone who lives nearby the the apparent area where this property exists, my interest was piqued when I saw the title of this book at my local Barnes & Noble.
At the time I passed on the book in favor of another. Just recently I remembered the title again and was curious if a Kindle version of this book was available. Seeing that there was one and it was only a few dollars this time, I figured I would give it a try.

Despite the greenness of the authors writing, it managed to keep me interested. This particular digital version needs heavy editing though due to spacing, spelling and grammar issues as well as minor mistakes in regards to timelines and dates mentioned in the beginning. Overall as a short novel about a haunted house, its a fun and quick read. As to the actual events and to how much is actually true, the author seems to really want us to suspend our disbelief and go with him on this open house tour of his own version of the Amityville Horror.

Decide on your own, true or not. I will admit though, while I was finishing up this book late last night, the night time sounds had me a bit on edge. And as to the area, I will have pause and wonder about that road when ever I am near it now. Especially since I am temporally literally living down the road from there.

It's worth the few dollars for a quick fun read if you can get passed minor editing errors as well as no Table of Contents that links to pages or page breaks with Chapters.
