Intelligent and Hilarious Attempt to Escape from a Terrifying Mansion - Don't Miss This One!

I read this book on a request by the author to send me a copy.  The book was so good that I should have been the one requesting the book!  It is a book that is both serious and silly while being funny and insightful at the same time.  The author’s style is such that you cannot put this book down and you hang on every word written.

 

Robbie was driving on a dark country road one night when he is almost killed by a falling tree.  He seeks refuge in a scary looking mansion which is the sign that he may never be heard from again.  He meets Sarah who looks mysteriously like Morticia Addams and shows Robbie to a room.  He is told that the house has no phone and it is better if he stays in the comfortable place.  Once there Robbie immediately starts to notice a lot of strange things and also realizes that he may not ever be able to leave the house.

 

It turns out that he house is full of just about every terror that one can imagine and many others that you may not have thought about.  Robbie deals with everything with both fear and a strong sense of humor.  He almost immediately learns that there are many residents in the house and none of them seem to have any interest in leaving and none seem to be interested in helping him get out.

 

As the story unfolds we are introduced to slews of memorable characters and the author uses very witty and most times helpful footnotes to expound on a lot of the dialogue and narration throughout the book.  At first the reader may feel that many things are downright silly but everything has an explanation for it eventually; some of the explanations are silly, some are witty, and some are downright brilliant.  Reading this book kept me remembering the Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein movie quite a bit.
