    PDFEPUB John Harwood #188; #188; The Seance PDFEPUB #180; seance book, The Seance ePUBTHE SEANCE by John Harwood is a gothic Victorian style mystery I have to say that I really enjoyed the author's writing style and will be searching out other books by him in the near future Using the technique of telling the tale with a series of narratives written by various people we are taken further back in time to the legends and stigma surrounding Wraxford Hall This decaying manor is somehow traced back through the lineage and left to a young woman Constance Langton recently orphaned by parents that she never really felt bonded toT

    PDFEPUB John Harwood #188; #188; The Seance PDFEPUB #180; seance book, The Seance ePUBReview from BadelyngeThe Seance by John Harwood is set in the 1880s and is the story of Constance Langton She becomes involved in spiritualism in an effort to lift her mother from the crippling grief of losing a child Constance due to the lack of regard and love from her parents has always had the nagging feeling that there is some mystery about her heritage believing herself to be a foundling Through diaries and journals and the aid of a world weary solicitor called Mr Montague she discovers a frightening legacy linking her to a crumbling deserted manor Wraxford Hall with a dark and murderous history It's a brilliantly written homage to the Victorian mysteries and ghost stories of such classic authors as Wilkie Collins Dickens AC Doyle and MR James etc It's full of styles motifs little references names etc that will be familiar to fans of this area of literature My personal favourite

    PDFEPUB John Harwood #188; #188; The Seance PDFEPUB #180; seance book, The Seance ePUBThere is a good story here but it is buried beneath the tedium of excessive Victorian pleasantries and feints too clever for their own good The late Nineteenth Century setting is perfect for this sort of story as superstition and mystery are still commonplace although being gradually worn away by the advance of science and technology The characters attempt to provide rational and scientific explanations for phenomena but retain the hopes or beliefs that something supernatural may account for the goings on providing a fertile ground for charlatans and showmen to prey upon their imaginations Things we take for granted today and even those we don't yet understand were easy pickings as avenues for knowledgeable people to control those wit

    PDFEPUB John Harwood #188; #188; The Seance PDFEPUB #180; seance book, The Seance ePUBI rated John Harwood's debut novel The Ghost Writer 2 stars but this second novel is definitely a big improvement and kept me interested and creeped out the entire time I was reading it The Seance is certainly a send up of all the classic Victorian gothics of the 19th century without all the flowery and overly melodramatic dialogue Harwood's prose is almost flawless in it's execution and he is a master in drawing the reader into an implausible world and making them believers in itFrom the very first paragraph I was hooked on the story and could hardl
