138. Gallows Hill

Gallows Hill by Lois Duncan


Pages: 229
Finished: Dec. 28, 2007
Reason for Reading: I'm reading Lois Duncan's books.
First Published: 1997
Genre: YA, horror
Rating: 2.5/5

First Sentence:

The crystal paperweight should have been clear, but it was not.


Comments: Sarah can see things from the past and the future. Seeing the future is unnerving at best, but why are the events Sarah sees from the past all from the Salem witch trials. So far I have been very impressed with Duncan's earlier works. This is the first more recent novel I've read and I was not so impressed with it. The plot kept me reading but the ending was predictable, the characters were cliched and none of them were remotely likable. Not recommended.
