Demian's Thoughts:

Unlike most books of this sort, there's a fairly developed (if not entirely original) story told here. Following different paths through the book reveals more and more about what's going on in Batterslea Hall, and after several readings everything makes sense. This is far more entertaining than books full of random, unrelated events tend to be, but it has the potential to make the first few readings rather confusing.

Good's Thoughts:

A rather suspicious title, but if I find it for $3.00 or less, maybe I'll get it....
