Really liked this book and the concept behind it. A haunted house story set in a big box retail knock-off of Ikea? I'm in (because who hasn't gotten hopelessly lost in one of those stores before?). And the story was actually kind of terrifying for a while. I read about 75% of this in one go. But then I broke the momentum, and the story didn't feel quite as fresh toward the ending. Also, I could have probably have done without the epilogue. It wasn't horrible, but it was a little meh. ( )

First off: the physical book is wonderful. A well-sized, glossy cover that manages to look like a furniture catalog, with several "goods" for sale.

Poor Amy, who's where all of us have been (or might be): lonely, running out of money, stuck in retail. She has no direction and no friends. But when she's forced into a late-night ghost hunting shift, she quickly learns what she's made out of.

A good cast of characters, a nice, creepy atmosphere (those "help" texts!), and lots of fun. ( )

A spooky book with an innovative design that tells the story of five Orsk (an Ikea-like furniture superstore) employees during one night inside the store. Like in all horror stories, strange things start to happen and we're left with an adventure straight out of a nightmare.
The design of the book alone deserves 5 stars and, although the quick-paced plot was great, I was expecting a more fleshed-out ending and also to get to know the characters a bit better.

Check out the book trailer here! ( )

Well, this was an absolute joy. The story was a reasonably standard haunted house story, but the presentation? the package? the writing? and the coolness of the horror elements? All top notch.

The characters were totally real, whether they were the retail lifers, the manager that had drank the corporate juice and was all-in, or the one that had essentially been a failure and was almost to the point of believing this was all they were meant for. The dialogue and situations and backstories all rang completely true.

And then there's the setting, the biggest character in this story, the Corporate American knockoff of Ikea. The way Hendrix uses all of the store's unique qualities raises this story well above most others in the same vein.

Absolutely a breath of fresh air. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. It's a haunted house story but rather than being someone's home, the house that is haunted is a furniture store. It's a twist that I'm not sure I've heard before but which totally makes sense. After someone's home, it is next on the list for where we spend the most time. Work does not have the same comfort of your home but knowing that you still have to go back and experience the ghosts or demons or whatever is still pretty scary.

Orsk Furniture is an Ikea rip-off and all the employees know it. The store still gets lots of business. Inside the Cleveland store, weird things are happening at night. The store manager convinces five employees to spend the night to catch whoever is playing tricks before the corporate executives arrive the next day. That night forever changes all of them.

As I mentioned above, I found the book to be solidly entertaining. It's a new setting for an old idea which I found clever. Some of the normal activities performed in a haunted house are carried out here; I'm thinking mainly of the seance and the final reason for the haunting. Anybody in modern times knows that you don't have a seance in a haunted building unless you want someone to die. The characters were all three dimensional and easy to picture. The final quarter of the book did seem a bit off but I can't exactly say why. Maybe it was the ending. Maybe I was expecting something different. Honestly, I can't quite put my finger on why so I'm hesitant to bring it up much more than that. I'm looking forward to reading more by Hendrix. ( )
