    One thought on “The Master Of The Fallen Chairs”

    1. Could you imagine another world, full of mystery, murder, magic, suspense and terrifying creatures?Well, this is Kim's reality.

This cryptic House is teeming with creatures of the unknown. Only days after Kim's arrival in Skirl, numerous occupants of the unforgiving House encounter untimely and unexplainable disappearances. As if [...]

    2. After the death of his mother, thirteen year old Kim goes to live with his guardian in Skirl,a huge old house situated in a remote Scottish glen. Skirl has been built on a chrolonogical fault line and Kim soon finds himself going backwards and forwards in time in a battle between good and evil. Forced to confront all sorts of ghosts and evil spirits , Kim is aided by a mysterious stanger with magical powers who turns up at the house claiming to be a long lost relative. There is some evocative wr [...]

    3. This book was oozing potential. When Kim goes to live with a handful of denizens in a mysterious old house (with a more mysterious old house within it's walls) he soon becomes swept up in a crazed mystery. He joins forces with an older Tim Diamond to unravel the mystery of a painting of fallen chairs while a time-traveling villainess tries to stop them. There is some good writing, but it's altogether a clunky and odd book. It's a far cry from baaad, but it always fails to be superb. The best exa [...]

    4. This is one of the most enjoyable books for children/teens that I have read in a while. To paraphrase another online reviewer, you have the feeling that you are reading a book that has always been around. Unlike some of the more recent "children's" books that have been epic in scale, this is a story in miniature - it takes place in the House of Skirl and concerns itself with (relatively) few characters: there's Kim, who's had to come to live with his uncle in England after the death of his mothe [...]

    5. This is an odd book. The title sounds like it's going to be on the whimsical and/or absurd side. The orphaned hero sent to live in a house full of ghosts reminds me a bit of Joan Aiken's "The Shadow Guests". The house full of ghosts - and several of the non-ghostly characters - also reminds me of Gormenghast. But the great auk tips back towards whimsy. And then there's the time travel, and the picture, and the bloke on the bridge, and the weird-but-cool Iggyd like "Tanglewreck", it a book that's [...]

    6. Der Schreibstil des Autors hat mir sehr gut gefallen und auch die Atmosphäre zog mich voll und ganz in ihren Bann. Die Spannung war von Anfang an da.Allerdings bleiben nach dem Lesen deutlich zu viele Fragen offen. Zwar handelt es sich hier offensichtlich um den ersten Band einer Reihe (Trilogie?), aber von Folgebänden ist bisher noch keine Spur zu entdecken. Ich würde gern weiterlesen, um eben jene offenen Fragen beantwortet zu wissen.An dem Buch gab es gute sowie schlechten Seiten, daher ka [...]

    7. I know lots of people did not like this book or had mixed feelings about it but i just want to say i loved this book and this was my first time reading something that was written by Henry Porter and i think he is an amazing author and i would love to read something else by him.I thought this book was amazing and the unexpected plot twist was awesome and the story was just so captivating and hilarious and thrilling i could not put it down and when i did i just wanted to re-read it over and over a [...]

    8. Original and catchy story about time travel, well written with interesting characters and surprising twists. I would have given 3.5 stars but I take away one star because the main character was talking about insect collections as if they were something nice and cool to look at. Oh, you idiot, insects or animals in general are not items and surely they are not to be collected.2.5 stars

    9. Nicely written and thrillingly told story about an old mansion, a painting and a young man who wants to save his family from a deadly curse. And there are time travels involved. Again. Seems to be a trend. But the ghosts are real, and so are the witches and the curse. I am pretty happy about that.

    10. This was awesome. I read it for 3dayss one of those books dat leave u with a huge sense ov adventure. Huge fun
