One late night I decided to watch some horror movie as USUAL. I checked my site if they uploaded something new and Icaught “The Little Stranger”, the description intrigued me a lot and the main character looked like A TWIN OF MY CRUSH! So I immediately started watching it! At first, the movie looked quit boring, but I gave it a chance. Later I got more interested in the movie...because of the main character who was a twin of my love...he even smiled like him with these tiny wrinkles at the corners of his eyes, red hair... Aaaand, at the end of the movie I saw THERE IS A BOOK!!! I immediately started searching my local Lithuanian bookstores, but our translation was published in 2011 and there are no more copies anywhere... (Plus the terrible translator translated the name of the book HORRIBLY WRONG! In Lithuanian it sounds like “A foreign object”. Wtf?! I would send this translator to the jail of translators for ETERNITY.) So I downloaded an English e-book and started reading! I chose English edition, because I expected Lithuanian edition will have horrible translation by even looking at that name of the book...I didn’t want to ruin my joy of reading with a shitty translator who is not worth a single cent!

So far the movie and the book have quite boring style...but if you don’t mind long descriptions of environment and meaningless dialogues, but enjoy general story- it’s pretty good book. A movie is quite close to the book, except for a few minor mistakes, but I liked both: a book and the movie. The horror in this story is not shocking, it’s rather like a flowing river that.... simply ending at the end and you sit there thinking: “So what’s now? That’s it?” I wouldn’t even put this story in the “horror section”, it’s rather like a psychological family drama with a few spooky elements.

I finished reading this book at the clinic while doing my glucose tolerance test and had two hours to sit, so it was perfect to complete the last two chapters. (I must admit I almost fell asleep at the end. LOL) So that is why I take one star out, because this book was pretty monotonic and boring, but the actual story in general is pretty good...just written in the wrong way. That’s all.

In a dusty post-war summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at lonely Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, its owners - mother, son and daughter - struggling to keep pace. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his.
