Horror book review: I remember you by Yrsa Sigurdardottir

The crunching noise had resumed, now accompanied by a disgusting, indefinable smell. It could best be described as a blend of kelp and rotten meat. The voice spoke again, now slightly louder and clearer:
Don’t go. Don’t go yet. I’m not finished.

In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a derelict house. But soon they realise they are not alone there – something wants them to leave, and it’s making its presence felt.

Meanwhile, in a town across the fjord, a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly woman discovers that she was obsessed with his vanished son.

When the two stories collide the terrifying truth is uncovered . . .

This book is a really good read, and should be enjoyed now that the nights are getting darker and it is becoming colder outside. If you have read any of Yrsa’s crime novels before, you know that you are in for a treat. Like most of her Thora books, here you also get to follow different stories that in the end come together and tell you just what has been going on.

If you haven’t read any of her other books, and decide to start with this, you should pick up her crime books as well, as all of them have some sort of ghost story element. Even as the ghosts are not a big part of the story, and always lurks on the outside, only felt and never seen, we the readers get to experience them, and the stories never disappoint.

I read her book, ‘Silence of the sea’ first, when I were confied to the hospital and had to stay there for a little while. I read it in two days, and I would have read it all in the first read if I didn’t have to sleep. The mood was perfect, and when the lights in the hospital went out for the night, and I went deeper and deeper into the mystery of the abandoned boat, I knew that I needed to read everything from this author.

Shortly after I got all the books rented from the library, all while trying to buy them when I could. I now have all the books that had come out in either norwegian or english, and have read them all but the newest one. I have also met the author herself and gotten two of my books signed, and from what I saw when I met her, she seems to be a really nice person as well.

So, if you like a good mix of humor, crime and a chilling element of darkness and ghosts, pick up her books. You won’t regret it as long as you can accept some bittersweet endings.

Horror movies

Hey everyone!

Since I am a big fan of horror movies, I wanted to add a new part to my blog where I share info on horror movies well known, and some not as known with people.

I will try to get it up soon, so please comment if you have a idea to a movie or something like that ^.^

Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)

Ciel Phantomhive is a twelve year old Count, who took on the family business at a young age after his parents died.But the life of a Count is not easy, something he is quite prepared for.

His staff is made up of a old caretaker that does nothing but drink tea, a chief with no ability to make dinner, a gartner that destroys instead of taking care of the garden and a maid that pour the drink at the table instead the cups.

But at the top of his staff, is Sebastian, a handsome butler with many skills. This mysterious man does anything his lord orders, after all, he is one hell of a butler.

The first episode starts off with what looks like a normal day at the household, the butler Sebastian does his best with making the day easy for his young Lord, while the others mess up.

And on top of all the chaos, the guest that they greet with a perfect welcome has plans of his own, planning to ask for money for his factory, that he has already sold, and then run off with the money.

But in the Phantomhive household, there is darker secret that the Count and his butler shares, as Sebastian set out to take revenge on anyone who angers his Lord, prepared to take any means necessary.

After all, he is a demon of a butler.

At first I thought this would be one of those serious series whit no laughs at all, but after the intro credits was over, I started understanding that there was some elements of humor present. This anime is based on the manga with the same name, but the anime also added a few fillers to fill out the episode, something that wasn’t really a problem as the first chapter of the manga really didn’t have a conclusion.

I have seen six episodes until now, and I think it is a good anime. Let us hope that it gets better ^.^
