    Excellent creepy factor!

    This kind of book just kind of creeps in, getting creepier so slowly that, like a frog being boiled, you don't really know something is going on until it is too late and you end up staying up way past your bedtime to finish it! Margot is already a tragic figure, prone to scream curdling nightmares after being the only survivor in the car wreck that killed the rest of her family but is still quite a likeable character and you can't help but feel for her as she gets taken in as a ward by the Suttons, a rich family that have a huge house. But there are secrets and darkness (or is there?) and the reader is left wondering if something is going on, or is Margot losing it? It is a really good book and would be a great read for Halloween, creepy and unsettling more than scary, but be sure to book off a section of your time because you will not want to put it down!

    Couldn't Put It Down

    Margot, the main character is dealing with a huge tragedy, her entire family was in a car accident and died except for her. She gets put into a group home, and a couple weeks of staying there, a mysterious rich family wants to adopt her. They said they knew her dad and wanted to repay his kindness, so they take her under their wing. Margot finds out soon enough that these people weren’t just being kind, they needed her help in a way. Laura and John’s daughter had an “accident” and her brain doesn’t work the way it should. She can do basic things such as feed herself, walk around, and go to the bathroom but that’s about all she can. Laura wanted to have Margot come into the family and be Agatha’s companion. To sit with her and just basically watch her and make sure she is okay. Right away, things are just a little off at this mansion of a house. Laura will say things that are a little strange, and John is always away for work. Slowly, we get more and more little tidbits about what is really going on at this house. My heart was racing when I hit the last 100 pages or so and I could not believe what I was reading. The Companion is a seriously messed up book, but I loved every minute of it. I loved Margot and the storyline. I’m not usually into a slower paced thriller, but this one was exceptionally written. It was so unnerving and freaky that I had to stop myself from reading and just breathe. I honestly hope this will be a huge hit in the horror/thriller department because it was perfection.

    Claustrophobic, creepy and haunting

    Margot is the survivor of a devastating accident in which her entire family drowns in their car. She is taken in by the family of a lawyer, a former colleague of her dad's who owes her father his life. They live on an enormous, isolated family estate. She is asked to be a companion to their daughter, Agatha, a vivacious 16-year-old girl who has inexplicably become catatonic. Laura, Agatha's mother has very strict codes of behavior in general and in how Margot relates to Agatha. The house is remote and completely cut off from the outside world, no cell service, no wi-fi and a long way from the nearest town. Margot starts to sense that things are not as they seem. The author is very skillful in creating an unsettling, foreboding and claustrophobic atmosphere. The reader is on edge throughout. The Companion feels like classic gothic horror, although it is set in the present day. It's a perfect haunting, creepy thriller and I read it in two days.
