13 Chairs by Dave Shelton
Thirteen chairs by Dave Shelton is a horror book with lots of different stories inside. However, instead of having a collection of stories on their own, Dave made a story to tell the stories to try and make the reader feel more scared and hooked to the book. The stories are all written in a different style. They are also true to the characters that are telling them to the audience.
I didn’t like all of this book because I couldn’t understand the old language in one of the stories. And I don’t particularly like horror stories. I also didn’t like the cliffhangers that were never finished, because it gives you a sense of anger at the book, with the reader thinking ‘ARRGH what happens next?! I want to know! I NEED TO KNOW!’
My favourite character was the main character, Jack. I liked him because he was being brave and scared the ghosts who were trying to scare him. The ghosts were telling spooky stories, but Jack told them about being alive and well. This made him special and different from all the other characters, as he was not scared to death as he was supposed to be but outplaying the ghosts at their own game.
In conclusion, I don’t like all of this book and would give it three of five stars. I would recommend this book to advanced readers and people that like horror stories.
