Chilling and dazzling . . . but the real skill of the book is in its emotional impact. Mitchell makes you care about each of the narrators * Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday *
Packed with heady ideas and pulsing with dark energy . . . both dazzlingly inventive and compulsively readable. * Malcolm Forbes, Financial Times *
An elegant fright-fest of the highest order . . . Mitchell masterfully, humorously, combines the classic components of a scary story - old house, dark alley, missing persons - with a realism, when describing the lives of the victims, that is pacy, funny and true. * Melissa Katsoulis, The Times *
A deliciously creepy story to be read for plot and for pleasure, with your heart racing, and your eyes involuntarily skipping forwards to find out what happens. * Claire Lowdon, Sunday Times *
Genuinely good, genuinely scary. * Harry Ritchie, Daily Mail *
[Mitchell] seamlessly brings together his clashing parallel realities through wordplay so dazzling it seems to defy its own gravitational rules. * Claire Allfree, Metro *
Irresistible * Hephzibah Anderson, Mail on Sunday *
Mitchell's most pleasurable book to date, which also features some of his finest writing * Jonathan Barnes, Literary Review *
Plants died, milk curdled, and my children went slightly feral as I succumbed to the creepy magic of David Mitchell's Slade House. It's a wildly inventive, chilling, and - for all its other-worldiness - wonderfully human haunted house story. I plan to return to its clutches quite often. * Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl *
