Review: Amity by Micol Ostow

As an enormous fan of horror, I have a fascination with all things Amityville and this novel was a seamless fit to feed my obsession. It was eerie minus being exaggeratedly done. I appreciated how spine-chilling this was and how the writer ended it.

I truly enjoyed Amity by Micol Ostow. Altogether, it was truly entertaining and kept me fascinated while I was actually reading. I discovered that most of the really thrilling things transpired in the start and sort of slowed down to sort of an eerie feeling after that.

The characters were certainly interesting and both of Gwen and Conner’s voices were easily distinguished. Not once did I get them jumbled together, which is usually tricky with some novels with several narrators. The characters were not perfect by any means which I certainly appreciated and the two of them had their individual mental complications that caused problems for them throughout the story.

I truly enjoyed the book; it was pleasingly spine-chilling. I would definitely commend Amity to fans of horror but readers of YA in general.


An Advanced Readers Copy of the book was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review.
