    what Troy said; also, Great Expectations is the most similar to a novel in the common meaning of the word; while Nicholas Nicklby (my personal favorite) is, in bears' opinion, the most dickensian

The upshot is that, even having read AHFOG, I donít feel that I know what Tremblayís writing is actually like, and so one day I will read his next novel (Disappearance At Devilís Rock).]
    Disappearance at Devil's Rock is very different from AHFOG. It's a great story, though one I'm not sure I'd read again, only because it was a bit disturbing in a very realistic sense. There's images in that book that are still stuck with me today even though it's been a number of years since I read it. That said, I would definitely recommend it.

    Cabin at the End of the World was really good as well.

    oh, I love it! The Haunting is even better, but then again The Haunting is better than almost anything that is already written or is going to be.

    HoHH is one of the most unnerving books I have ever read. I had seen the first film version of it ages ago but when I read the book, it really creeped me out. I love it. I haven't seen the netflix show yet but I hear it's pretty good.
