Slade House  free pdf The "New York Times "bestseller by the author of "The Bone Clocks "and "Cloud Atlas "- A "Publishers Weekly "Literary Fiction Top 10 Pick for Fall 2015 "Keep your eyes peeled for a small black iron door." Down the road from a working-class British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you ll find the entrance to Slade House. A stranger will greet you by name and invite you inside. At first, you won t want to leave. Later, you ll find that you can t. Every nine years, the house s residents an odd brother and sister extend a unique invitation to someone who s different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a recently divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it s already too late. . . . Spanning five decades, from the last days of the 1970s to the present, leaping genres, and barreling toward an astonishing conclusion, this intricately woven novel will pull you into a reality-warping new vision of the haunted house story as only David Mitchell could imagine it. Praise for "Slade House" Devilishly fun. "The Washington Post" Entertainingly eerie . . . "Slade House" boils down to Mitchell s take on the classic ghost story, complete with his version of a haunted house. . . . The last thing we expected from Mitchell is simplicity, but here it is, burnished to a hellish bronze. "Chicago Tribune" A ripping yarn . . . Like Shirley Jackson s Hill House or the Overlook Hotel from Stephen King s "The Shining, " [Slade House] is a thin sliver of hell designed to entrap the unwary. . . . As the Mitchellverse grows ever more expansive and connected, this short but powerful novel hints at still more marvels to come. "San Francisco Chronicle" Like Stephen King in a fever . . . manically ingenious. "The Guardian "(U.K.) "Slade House, " the tricky new confection by David Mitchell, is a haunted house story that savors of Dickens, Stephen King, J. K. Rowling and H. P. Lovecraft, but possesses more psychic voltage than any of them. "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette" Tightly crafted and suspenseful yet warmly human, "Slade House" is the ultimate spooky nursery tale for adults. "The Huffington Post" Diabolically entertaining . . . dark, thrilling, and fun . . .a thoroughly entertaining ride full of mind games, unexpected twists, and even a few laughs. "The Daily Beast" Plants died, milk curdled, and my children went slightly feral as I succumbed to the creepy magic of David Mitchell s"Slade House." It s a wildly inventive, chilling, and for all its otherworldliness wonderfully human haunted house story. I plan to return to its clutches quite often. Gillian Flynn, #1"New York Times"bestselling author of"Gone Girl"and"The Grownup" I gulped down this novel in a single evening. Painstakingly imagined and crackling with narrative velocity, it s a "Dracula" for the new millennium, a "Hansel and Gretel" for grownups, a reminder of how much fun fiction can be. Anthony Doerr, author of "All the Light We Cannot See, "winner of the Pulitzer Prize David Mitchell doesn t break rules so much as he proves them to be inhibitors to lively intelligent fiction. #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Dean Koontz "From the Hardcover edition.""
