I’m so pleased to have read this. I loved the setting and the characters, which create a unique atmosphere for this haunted house story. The heat portrayed makes you want to lie around doing nothing but melting and reading this book. There are some truly spooky scenes, though I found the buildup more sinister than the ending. Towards the end, the book feels a little rushed because of the languid though absorbing journey to get there. Indeed, I found the slower parts of the book carry the more eerie aspects, so that when the story speeds up, as a climax should, it almost diminishes the scare, leaving me feeling the novel was over too fast. Still, the curious happenings and daunting disturbances are worth spending time with. ( )

If you’re looking for a nice slice of Gothic horror, this book’s for you. Creepy and atmospheric, this eerie little masterpiece is sure to give you the chills (or at least the heebie jeebies). Unlike some books published decades ago, this one stands the test of time. (Interesting side note: this author co-wrote the Beetlejuice screenplay!) ( )

The natural ghost is removed from this book but is replaced with something even more powerful and more ferocious against the strange isolation of the story. ( )

Amazing listen, R C Bray was the perfect narrator. The story was deeply atmospheric and creepy. I found myself thinking about it late at night and freaking myself out. It would have gotten 5 stars except for a few plot holes not being resolved at the end. Otherwise, this counts as one of my top reads in a very long time! ( )

The tone McDowell takes for The Elementals is, at first glance, anachronistically slow and courtly for its time-period, relying on creepy misdirection and a sort of black comedy of manners rather than short, sharp shocks for its overall impact. As the book continues, however, its atmosphere builds to a close, hot pitch of febrile discomfort; McDowell never sets a foot wrong, choosing each word with nasty care and maintaining a cruel distance from his protagonists throughout, which allows them to cocoon themselves within a self-defeating shell of disbelief and indifference, then watches the consequences of their inaction evolve without comment, let alone sympathy.

To lead us farther into darkness, and quite to lose us in this maze of Error . . . the Devil maketh men believe that apparitions, and such as confirm his existence are either deceptions of sight, or melancholy depravements of phansie. -- Sir Thomas Browne, Pseudodoxia Epidemica
