    داستان اولی نسبتا جالب بود. دومی ایده‌ی تکراری‌ای داشت. سومی هم شاید بچه‌ها رو واقعا بترسونه.

    Wasnt too scary. The horror contained was more just a slight hatred between two people, then one person got caught up in the middle, making it complicated.

    I LOVED this book. It was an amazing book written by Anthony Horowitz. I would be pleased if Anthony Horowitz made another book similar to this one. My favourite character was Uncle Nigel.
