"Who is good and who is bad? What is right and what is wrong? You ever think, Bela, how people say that light shows what things really look like, but they also say that light and dark are equal and need each other and you can’t have one without the other and so . . . is it so crazy to say that maybe what we see in the dark is the truth too?"

This is a really creepy novel told from the perspective of a child named Bela. Bela like a lot of children has an imaginary friend. But hers lives in the closet, and tells Bella she's her other Mommy. Other Mommy is constantly asking Bela to let her into her heart, to reincarnate her and bring her to life. And then Other Mommy starts appearing outside the closet, haunting Bela wherever she goes.

This was entertaining and scary..thank you Random House Ballantine for giving me an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I am a jumpy person, which means horror is a genre I’m not especially drawn to. This one had enough buzz that I gave it a try. I thought it was good, it was unnerving enough that I couldn’t read it before bed if I wanted to fall asleep easily. The plot drew me in, but I found a climactic scene too be a little ridiculous and it didn’t really stick with me after I finished it.

I thought Bird Box was such a good book, so I was super excited to read Incidents Around the House. Even the title is great. The story was scary! A few times I was alone in the house reading at night and I felt a little anxious about looking up at the dark corners of the closet. This author is really good at setting up a story and then leaving just enough mystery/explanation as to what is happening. The family in the story is completely freaked out and at a loss for what is going on. They don't know how to stop this malevolent entity and they don't know what it is. It makes it seem so much more real when that confusion and fear is with the reader too. I hope this author keeps on writing! I definitely recommend this book. I received an e-book from the publisher is exchange for an honest review.… (mais)

3.5 stars

Author Josh Malerman seizes on the natural human fears of the unknown and the dark to create a page-turner that will leave you looking over your shoulder and a wee bit jumpy.

*Something* is out there -- and it's everywhere. And when people see it, they go batsh*t (birdsh*t?) crazy. Not just regular crazy, but suicidal, homicidal Florida crazy. The only defense is stay inside with windows covered and boarded up -- and to navigate the world blindfolded when you must wander outside.

In this new world all regular activity soon ceases -- no radio or TV broadcasts, no running water, no essential services, etc.

Malerman takes us into the minds of his characters as they try to live this new existence. We see them try to form alliances and decide who they can trust -- and who is working against them. We also see them try to survive against the *thing* that's out there. Some of these scenes had me completely on edge.

The book was certainly creepy, but even a scaredy cat like me was able to read it without nightmares, so it isn't too terrifying. While some readers have liked the ending, this is one of the areas where the book lost points with me as I found it to be a bit anti-climactic.
