Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror by Chris Priestley

This book revolves around our main character Edgar who is on a visit to his Uncle Montague's house. On every visit, Uncle Montague shares with Edgar some of his many tales of terror. However, Edgar has noticed that all of these tales stem from particular objects...objects that are all in his Uncle's house...

This book is a collection of short scary stories interwoven within a bigger, creepier story. The writing is just descriptive enough to really send tingles down your spine, and the plot moves very swiftly from one spooky story to the next, making it all the more fun and entertaining to read.

I really liked Edgar as a main character; he acted much the same as I would have done in the situation, and I liked how he was always curious to find out more. At times I was really creeped out by Uncle Montague, but I suppose that is allowed, seem as it is a scary story collection!

At first I thought the stories in this book weren't going to be too scary, but as I delved deeper into the novel, I found myself being even more scared. I don't get scared easily by books, but this one definitely did it for me; the stark reality of some of the stories was enough to creep anyone out!

Overall, I really enjoyed this novel and recommend you pick it up. 5/5 stars!
