Book Review: Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice

book review music from the dead bebe faas rice

Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice is a young adult horror novel originally published in April 1997.  Marnie and her cousin Peter drive up to the mansion that Marnie's father rented for the summer ahead of her father.  When the cousins arrive at the mansion called Stonycraig and settle in, Marnie is nervous because she thought she saw a shadow in one of the windows.  Then, she starts hearing a woman crying late at night.  Are the stories about Stonycraig being haunted true?

This is a book I originally read as a teenager, and I remember being impressed by the storyline and writing.  I recently decided to reread it as an adult to see if it was as good as I remembered.  I have to say it was phenomenal.  Well-written and unputdownable.  

Even though there were parts that came back to me as I made my way through Music From The Dead, I still found it to be perfectly eerie and creepy.  There was even a little bit of romance but nothing inappropriate for a tween or teen.  The only complaint that I really have about the book is that the author used a word and proceeded to give us the definition of it.  I remember being irritated by this when I read it the first time.  

Five out of five stars is what I give Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice.  It's a great book for kids eleven and up who are interested in reading horror books.
