LoveReading View on Uncle Montague's Tales Of Terror

Chris Priestley in his first book with Bloomsbury has written a book that is impossible to put down. Be warned however! The content is scary, no doubt about it. The book contains a series of short fast-paced horror stories, climaxing with the autobiographical account from the narrator Uncle Montague. Tales such as the Demon Bench End and The Path will have you cowering underneath your duvet and sleeping with the lights on so be aware, this book is bound to put the frighteners on any reader of any age. Despite the fear, or perhaps because of it, you'll be completely gripped from page one.

Uncle Montague's Tales Of Terror Synopsis

Uncle Montague lives alone in a big house and his regular visits from his nephew give him the opportunity to relive some of the most frightening stories he knows. But as the stories unfold, a newer and more surprising narrative emerges, one that is perhaps the most frightening of all. "Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror", it transpires, are not so much works of imagination as dreadful lurking memories. Memories of an earlier time in which Uncle Montague lived a very different life to his present solitary existence.
