    Whimsically spooky.

    I'm not all the way through his catalog yet, but so far I haven't read a Mitchell book I don't like. Each one is very different yet they all manage to overlap each other in some way - whether by characters or occupations or places appearing across different periods of time. The search for these synchronicities is part of why his books are so much fun to read. I would best describe Slade House as a mixture of fantasy and suspense - perfect for an October release. It's more occult than ghost story, but the Halloween season is pretty equal opportunity as far as spooky old houses, telepathy and mysterious deaths are concerned. Like Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks, Slade House is told as a series of interconnected short stories, each one taking place at different points in time, with a different narrator. It is fast paced, dropping us into the middle of the lives of quite a few quirky characters and leaving us to find our bearings as we go along. This is a relatively short story, easily read in an afternoon or over a few days. Though it isn't his most innovative work, I do think it is among his more accessible, and it's a great introduction to David Mitchell's inimitable style. A solid 4 stars.

    Well written, but ...

    Like all Mitchell's novels, Slade House is VERY well written with wonderful, fully developed, credible characters - except for the twins and Marinus. The story is also somewhat lacking. Like The Bone Clocks, this novel presents a situation of complete fantasy with no real means for the reader to accept it and the events that occur - except for the characters. Fantasy does not make a good novel without a good story and heroes as well villains.

    Great Introduction to The Bone Clocks

    I usually don't read a book's Goodreads reviews before reading the book itself. I never do so with a book I have committed to review, so I didn't realize until I read Albert's review just now that Slade House is a bit of a sequel to The Bone Clocks (although I did pick up on one of the Grayer twins using that term to refer to their victims). I'm a stickler for reading series books in order, but in this case I am glad I hadn't read The Bone Clocks first. Not understanding the "world" from which the Grayers came, I waited with bated breath every nine years to see who could stop them. The penultimate scene left me wishing that I knew more about the Horologists, so I am delighted The Bone Clocks is already waiting for me. This may turn out to be a happy unforeseen consequence for Mitchell and his publisher. Like Goodreads reviewer Ethan, I struggled when I read Cloud Atlas years ago, and that experience dampened my enthusiasm when The Bone Clocks came out. The short and accessible Slade House proved to be just the nudge I needed to return to Mitchell's longer work. I received a free copy of Slade House through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
