Horror and Mystery Weekend Choice: Lockwood & Co. #1 The Screaming Staircase

The Screaming Staircase (Lockwood & Co., #1)The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"I reached the landing and heaved the bags down with a little sigh. When I raised my head to call to Lockwood, I saw a girl standing there."

And I was like, "Ooohhh... shhh***ttttt"

Got recommendation from two of my best GoodReads friends, surely I cannot turn it down. The Screaming Staircase literally made me screaming from the inside... Lol...

Adventure? Mystery? Horror? Ghost? Are you familiar with that? Gosh, it is exactly like get back to my childhood time when reading R.L. Stain books especially Goosebumps and Fear Street.

Actually, as a grown up, I became less interest in ghost story, the only series about ghost I could stand is The Mediator by Meg Cabot, which is actually not really ghostly, however, here I am writing about The Screaming Staircase, giving it 5 stars and currently craving for the next book (thanks God its weekend).

The unique thing about this book is you don't know the setting of time,  you even cannot guess, when the Problem happened because it is obviously not in present time or in the past or even in our future time, if it is then you will find George's glasses even ticker because he would spend most of his time in front of computer, browsing history of haunted houses all over London, or Lockwood and Lucy are sending BBM to each others. No, that makes this book could be read in all time, perhaps 50 years later when I recommend this book to my grandchildren, they will find the story as fascinating as now when I'm reading it.
