So I ll have to admit first of all that I really thought Stephen King wrote this I felt like such a putz when it was pointed out that he did not At least I can breathe a sigh of relief because this was not up to King s usual level DuhThis diary Happy Easter, Mouse! (If You Give...) entry book tells the story of No it s not great literaturebut it has a certain charm Loosely based on the mythos surrounding the Winchester House this mock up period ghostpossessionhaunting was first published to accompany a rather meh miniseries called Rose Red I watched said miniseries wasn t terribly impressed by the acting or the campy FXbut the background of Rose Red intrigued menough to read this a few weeks later In retrospect I should have waited my opinion was colored by the show I caught myself looking for key objects foreshadowing that linked to the screen story rather than simply Gone (Gone, enjoying the book for what it was Now many years later I can say I liked the book couldn t care less about the occasional stylistic wobble or how it ties into a junky miniseries rather it s a fun Edwardian spoof with anxtremely unreliable narrator a creepy setting 35 stars overall This was a book that I picked up and started reading Threads Of The Shroud essentially because it happened to be right there in front of me I couldn t tell you what compelled me to finish it obviously I had NOTHING better to do and looking back that s kind of sad The only good thing I can say is that the book initial had an idea with potential but unfortunately that potential was ignored and wasted The story went on and on but never had any points that I found memorial or crucial If there is a climax it was totally over my head or just so lame that it wasn t worth registering All the main characters were boring clich unbelievable and flat The only person in thentire book that I had any interest in at all was the Chinese mystic and she was only there on a couple of pages If she had been in the book any then that I probably would ve hated her too I can t fathom why someone took the time to waste ink on this novel My guess is the author really wanted to try to practice writing All Seated on the Ground erotic fiction It was a bad try The lesson that the author needs to learn is that gratuitous yet completely uninteresting sex does not a good story make Oh I should mention that this is suppose to be a ghosthaunted house tale but you forget that because any of the supernaturalpisodes have no power to intrigue or hold you in any kind of suspense Lame book Amazing readMy Life at Rose Red is a coming of age novel framed in horror It is a diary written by fictional character Ellen Rimbauer and recounts her xploits in life in love gone wrong and most importantly her life at Rose Red the house that was built for her by her husband John Rimbauer A house that is taken on a life of its own And indeed other s lives along with itThis story grips you from start to finish Although it is completely fictional the book is written in the form of a diary and is that time so real that you can sit and ask yourself whether these vents truly took place or not After first reading this book I found myself on the internet researching the history of the novel and Wiring even what the story was based off of It is such a well thought out story and yet so simple you could definitely see it happening in real lifeInjoyed this book so much that it is now one of my all time favorite books The fact that it is a preuel to a great horror film by Stephen King makes it Against All Odds even better in my opinion You get to read the diary book and then watch the film to see how things trulynd And unfortunately both the book and the film have utterly tragic Jingling Daddys Bells BDSM Menage endings but in the string of things it s all perfect for the genre that it falls underI would highly recommend this book to anyone who like strong female characters and horror novelsOr you can watch my review on YouTube here Perfect creep fest story to go along with the dark and stormy nights that we ve been having First I would like to point out that while Stephen King was responsible for the miniseries which takes place after thevents of this book he is not the author of this book which becomes uickly apparent as you read It lacks King s style and I m surprised that any fan of his would think this was the case than At the turn of the twentieth century Ellen Rimbauer became the young bride of Seattle industrialist John Rimbauer and began keeping a remarkable diary This diary became the secret place where Ellen could confess her fears of the new marriage her confusion over her merging sexuality and the nightmare that her life would become The diary not only follows the development of a girl
Ive pages in The actual author according to wikipedia and the author s own site is Ridley Pearson He s apparently a really real person with his own list of books on and verything Given the attempted ARG Against All Odds elements that accompanied the promotion of these materials I can see where it got confusing for some people Now on to the review of the book itselfThis started out as a decent story one I ve been meaning to read since seeing the television miniseries when it originally aired just about ten years ago at the time of this writing I don t remember much about the seriesxcept that at the point it had aired I was well versed Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism enough in Kingology to predictvery single turn of the plot much to my family s annoyance and I was really gripped by the beginning of itHowever as it the book goes on the diary gimmick of it feels very much tacked on with conversations related a touch too precisely and obvious writer tricks stuck into the narrative spoiling the illusion of an actual journal Additionally while the story shies away from the big obvious scares leaving you with mysterious disappearances and a dearth of any kind of gore it doesn t provide scares in any significant other ways Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils either The fact is simply that if you re going for moody and atmospheric frights a diary style presentation simply doesn t work as well It puts the author into a catch 22 if he tries to make it sound like a diary he s going to lose the sense of atmosphere as most people don t add descriptive passages to their journals a necessary techniue to build mood anderiness If on the other hand he tries to Payment Due evoke the mood properly he loses the real diary feeling There are cases where an author has been able to pull this kind of thing off but it s a fine line to walk Additionally as the story moved on the characters became andxaggerated to the point that it began to feel cartoonish I m all for having the characters change and grow and so on but this really got ridiculous This also happened with the plot which seemed like it was trying for subtle strangeness in the beginning of the book and then just got completely insane later on and not in a good scary way By the Vampireville (Vampire Kisses, end nothing anyone was doing made any sense There were a few characters in the story who didn t undergo this bizzarre transformation but we don t seenough of them for them to really get interesting Promising characters are tossed aside too soon and as the narrator s madness grows we start to wonder where all of her former friends and her family are in all thisI mostly gave this two stars based on the novel s very strong and interesting start if not for that it would most definitely have been a one star book Make no mistake the first half of this book is pretty good The Pirate of the Pacific (Doc Savage, exotic locales the protagonist s strange husband and Ellen s internal life are all very real and fascinating It just doesn t keep up this pace and devolves slowly into nonsense A final noteCertain parts of the book weredited out and placed on a website somewhere for reasons I don t truly understand Supposedly this is because the fake researcher who found this fake diary thought they were too juicy for the public so she put them on the internet Oh kay That makes sense I guess The problem is it seems the site has been abandoned and the The Rich and the Profane (Lovejoy, excerpts are now gone with no mirror of them in sight I was promised debauchery and it seems that now I will never get it Though from what I could gather off related sites this debauchery includes sex scenes with an icicle which sounds uncomfortable to say the least so perhaps it s better I can t find them Is this story true No Rose Red does notxist HoweverThe story was partially based on the story of Sarah Winchester who continued to build her house until she died Sarah Winchester was very superstitious and that thought the victims that had died at the hand of Winchester rifles would one day come back to haunt her so the house was build with doors to no where steps that lead up to ceilings and went no where in her vain attempt to protect herselfYou can tour this house the Stephen King found such inspiration from to this day After learning the truth I still think its one of the better done stories of Kings writings I really loved this book I recieved my copy as. Nto womanhood it follows the construction of the Rimbauer mansion called Rose Red an Turbulence enormous home that would be the site of so many horrific and inexplicable tragedies in the years ahead The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer My Life at Rose Red is a rare document one that gives us an unusual view of daily life among the aristocracy in thearly 1900s a window into one woman's hidden motio.
