The Fall

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Hachette Children's Books

For many years, generations of the Usher family have been cursed, afflicted with madness and sickness, believing the house itself to be the cause. Madeline Usher realises that the only way for her and her beloved brother Roderick to be free, is to destroy the house itself. Her plan looks like it may succeed until she wakes to find herself entombed in a coffin…

This disturbing and strangely compelling story builds slowly, drawing the reader into an eerie, sinister world of madness and despair. Definitely one to read with the lights on!
