The Last House on Needless Street
Ward's Last House on Needless Street had me on tenterhooks from the first sentence. The characters are delightfully unsettling, reminiscent of figures we may recognize but altogether their own entities. The atmosphere of the story is claustrophobic, the air is stale and sour. It wraps around the reader and squeezes. The plot unfurls in a stuttering, looped fashion, as more questions appear with each answer given. There are many willfully forgotten truths waiting to be unearthed. Who and what exactly is in the last house on Needless street, and what in god's name is in those woods? Recommended by Jack
