#BookReview of The Fall by @_bethanygriffin


The Fall
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Horror, Retelling
About the Book: Madeline Usher is doomed.

She has spent her life fighting fate, and she thought she was succeeding. Until she woke up in a coffin.

Ushers die young. Ushers are cursed. Ushers can never leave their house, a house that haunts and is haunted, a house that almost seems to have a mind of its own. Madeline’s life—revealed through short bursts of memory—has hinged around her desperate plan to escape, to save herself and her brother. Her only chance lies in destroying the house.

In the end, can Madeline keep her own sanity and bring the house down? The Fall is a literary psychological thriller, reimagining Edgar Allan Poe’s classic The Fall of the House of Usher.

Do I Recommend this book? Yes

Notes and Opinions: I will start off saying I really did enjoy this book. It was thrilling and seriously had me on edge. I freaking loved it!! I loved and hate reading it at night. I wanted to put it down and finish it during the day but I NEEDED to know the ending. Now I will say I've never read Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher but I want now! Now on to why it wasn't 4 or 5 stars. The pacing. God, it was sloooooow and boring. That was one of the other reasons why I wanted to put it down. Other than that I liked it!
