I really liked this book because I like fantasy mid evil type books.  It's about a peasant who dies and is a ghost and needs help from the princess. The way it was written was really awesome it was fun and really funny.

Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton

Hope, 14
Dave Shelton
Thirteen Chairs
David Fickling Books 2015

      Thirteen Chairs, Thirteen Stories, an eerie, old house, and a curious boy named Jack.  In Thirteen Chairs you will find a rushing read with a good deal of excitement and a fair bit of fear. The unearthly novel will appeal most to those with a darker sense of adventure and a will to learn the ending.  I thought the book was extremely interesting. I enjoyed it but don't often read this type of story, and would not read it again. I am however very glad I read it, and would recommend it to anyone who likes to hear of 'ghosts.'

Rating: 3 Readable
