Review:  The Ghost Hunter by Kenneth Gibbons

When the Delmount family moved into their new home, they got far more than they bargained for. Doors moving, noises, and sightings of apparitions accompanied the family's spiral into dysfunction. Each family member grew distant from one another as their personalities changed. One particularly violent day sends the family fleeing in disarray. A chance encounter with a biker by the father seems to be the family's only hope of regaining the normalcy they had before the move.

Okay I started this book without looking at the cover.. I know what was I thinking? We will get to that. So first things first, the cover is bad, I don’t like clowns, ever have, never will and the cover makes me think Clown, in fact if I had saw the cover without reading the blurb I would not picked up the book. What??  Everyone has their fears, mine are clowns.  and purple clowns at that.  Don’t ask, just look.

 

Okay but I didn’t see the cover until after the book had been read and I was starting on this review.  I have to pull the cover to show all you pretty people what it looks like for every book.  That is when I saw the purple clown.  I am not making fun of this book at ALL, but the cover, yes and I will admit to it.

 

Down to the nitty gritty, I actually really enjoyed this novella of sorts.  It is short, but it has so much going on in its meager pages that I was personally blown away.  The depth and character development that Kenneth was able to squeak out while telling a story is great.  I read it in one sitting and it scared me, I mean there were points that really scared me, but the overall plot and theme were solid and well thought out.  This book could have been a full length and he could have easily meandered on about the main characters and how they were feeling and etc etc etc but he didn’t.  He got to the point, hit you on the head with it and then ran over to the next point yelling at you to follow and I like this novella for that purpose.

 

So other than the cover this is a great book, and my opinion if you don’t like clowns, just download it on kindle and skip the cover.  There are NO CLOWNS in this book, and sadly no clowns were hurt in the making of this book.  What?  I really hate clowns, well male clowns, female clowns I can be around for short amounts of time.

 

– and no I did not mark down the book for aforementioned clown cover.

    Melanie, I didn’t really see a clown but just bad cover as you pointed out. I have advised authors before about covers. It is the first thing people look at (not in your case LOL), In a magazine the image is everything.
