Three or four weeks at Esswood could lay the groundwork for his tenure, for a book about Isobel-his or the whole next stage of his life.

Three or four weeks at Esswood could lay the groundwork for his tenure, for a book about Isobel-his or the whole next stage of his life. When he returned he ought to be carrying in his briefcase the germ of a secured future as surely as Jean once again carried another kind of future life within her womb.

That day finally came 24 years MRS. GOD by Peter Straub has been waiting for me for a long time.

Another chilling story from the Houses Without Doors collection. That day finally came 24 years MRS.

Peter Straub's Mrs. God was a try to write a ghost story in a pure Robert Aickman style. The introduction of that book was written by Peter Straub. Thank you Peter for pushing the bandaries of fantasy once again a little bit more. Originaly published in his collection "Houses Without Doors", this is a re-print. But still, if you like Robert Aickman it's worth the trip.

Peter Francis Straub (/straʊb/; born March 2, 1943) is an American novelist and poet. His horror fiction has received numerous literary honors such as the Bram Stoker Award, World Fantasy Award, and International Horror Guild Award.

Pegasus Books, 14 февр. This book sounded so promising, but was actually not that great. The ending, in particular, left something to be desired. From the New York Times bestselling author of Mystery, Shadowland, and The Talisman, the tale of an inspired literary sojourn that turns into something far more sinister Esswood House. God is a very different kind of ghost story from one of America’s most celebrated authors. Отзывы - Написать отзыв. It's almost as if this book was hastily written.

MRS GOD was Peter Straub's attmept at the kind of story Robert Aickman is known for: one where everything happens belows the surface of the story. That said, neither Aickman nor this story are for everybody. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that most people shouldn't bother with reading this. It really is a complex story. The audiotape no doubt contains the version included in Straub's "Houses With Doors" anthology, which is actually an easier, more reader-friendly, version of the story. For the true masochist, track down a copy of the Donald M. Grant (publisher).

Peter Straub continues to delve into the idea that phantoms finally adopt the souls of those who observe them.

As a stylist, Peter Straub has one of the most literate and original voices working in fiction today...Mrs. God is a tour de force of brooding menace and mystery...Here, Straub uses his descriptive strength to slyly hint at an English manor's strange history and present mystery, skillfully building the plot to an excruciating climax, Charles de Lint.

I've read a few of Peter Straub's book over the years and by and large I like his work.

I enjoyed this book for the most part but I was a bit disappointed with the end. It had a very weird feel throughout the story which reminded me of Algernon Blackwood which, I quite enjoyed as it kept me wondering where it would lead to next.

Unfortunately the ending felt, to me, a bit rushed and inconclusive. But that's just my taste hence; three stars instead of four.

The real star of this book is the prose, the lush, lucid words that Straub is so wickedly good at. The story is a page turner, a ghost story, the kind of story you hear at night in front of the fireplace as the wind rages outside. A professor gets an invitation to spend a month at a secluded estate to do research on an obscure poet. Things happen, he gets uneasy, and the revelations and secrets begin. Recommended.

Ohh....not good. Very not good. There was some good writing in it and it could have been good but it wasn't good.

This story is a departure from some of my favorite Straub characters of the past, but it's an interesting story and worth a read.

Not only is it short but rambles and meanders quite meaninglessly most of the time. First time I've ever written a review for any of the authors I read. Actually thought of throwing the book away when done because I'm sure I will never read this again and wouldn't want to give it to anyone else. Poorly done. I've read just about every book by Straub, King and Koontz so I think I have a good perspective on this genre and these authors in particular. Don't know what I was thinking originally giving this two stars. I guess I was thinking of how much I've enjoyed most his books in the past but I've downgraded this to one star. Quite horrible.

Peter Straub's Mrs. God was a try to write a ghost story in a pure Robert Aickman style. Originaly published in his collection "Houses Without Doors", this is a re-print. But still, if you like Robert Aickman it's worth the trip. Yes, it's a short novel but the action starts right away at the first paragraph. It is the story of William Standish, a shoolar who is given the chance to explore the poetry of his ancestor Isobel Standish in a writer's residence. But the place in haunted and not in a traditionnal way. This is a very original story, which one appreciete more if one has read a few Aickman stories before. If you want to fully enjoy Mrs. God, it may be a good idea to read The Wine-Dark Sea first. It's a collection of weired tales, by Robert Aickman. The introduction of that book was written by Peter Straub. Thank you Peter for pushing the bandaries of fantasy once again a little bit more.

Full of intrgue and mystery! This journey is full of twist and turns and what just happened? Straub is one of my favorite authors.
Had potential but lost it in the end. Not worth the time time. Seemed unfinished.. n o t his best
