5.0 out of 5 stars Don't go in the attic
By Carol Ann on 20 October 2021
A Room In The Attic
I began reading this book with great expectations as Louise Douglas is one of my favourite authors.
And this gripping schoolboy yarn with its surreal turn-of-the-century melodrama didn’t disappoint.
Dickensian descriptions juxtaposition with contemporary conversations, it is a mysterious, gothic ghost story spanning time and settings.
There is the asylum on Dartmoor converted to an austere boarding school - a bleak house which is ‘home’ to some lost souls.
A needy little girl with memory loss and a misunderstood teenaged boy with big ears with 90 years separating their stories.
I sense not the friendships of Tom Brown’s schooldays but more Nicholas Nickleby with some Brontë influences and a tabloid exposé thrown in as the characters through the century are linked.
The creaking rocking chair, the feminist writer confined to a mad house by disapproving parents this is psychological whodunnit through the ages.
It is descriptive, especially of physical appearances and of the cold comfort surroundings, as it interweaves the past and the present which is in first person narrative.
And the ghostly guidance of a dead mother appears in italics.
But there are some warm, lasting friendships made.
As I neared the end of the 400-pages my anticipation was mounting, who would need rescuing, will goodness prevail, will it have a happy ending, the possibilities seem endless.
It was impossible to second guess where it was going as each alternating past and present chapter revealed in bite size portions another piece of the jigsaw.
It reminded me in parts of the French Lieutenant’s Woman - what was truth and what was just my imagination or rather that of the writer.
Thoroughly enjoyable couldn’t put it down.
