Ghost Story by Peter Straub
In life, not every sin goes unpunished.This is the one book of all books that I should have read by now. Nothing tops a good ghost story for me, and this obvious selection sits on my shelf unread. I can't imagine what I'm saving it for.
For four aging men in the terror-stricken town of Milburn, New York, an act inadvertently carried out in their youth has come back to haunt them. Now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past -- and get away with murder.
Peter Straub's classic bestseller is a work of "superb horror" (The Washington Post Book World) that, like any good ghost story, stands the test of time -- and conjures our darkest fears and nightmares.
Not only is Ghost Story considered a must read ghost novel, it's a must read horror novel in general. Basically, this is me failing at books.
Have you ever read Ghost Story? Is there a book that is a perfect fit for you that you have no excuse for not having read yet?
If you ever want to buddy read a book I've mentioned on Shelf Control, please let me know!
