BooksToRead Review

Peter Straub (1943) is an American writer of mainly horror books. During his career, he won several prestigious prizes, such as the World Fantasy Award (1989) and four times the Bram Stoker Award. He may be well-known to the general public because he has written several books in collaboration with Stephen King, such as the excellent fantasy book The Talisman. In Ghost Story, the author, as the title indicates, goes back to the classic theme of a ghost that is disturbing people's lives, but he does this with a lot of workmanship.

In the sleepy town of Milburn in New York, four old men come together to tell each other stories. Some stories have really happened, others have been invented, but they're all terrifying. An easy way to spend some time in an interesting way. But one story in particular comes back to terrorize them and their little town. A story about something they did together in their past. A terrible mistake. A horrible accident. And the four old men will experience that you can not bury the past forever.
