Comments Duplex

  • Steven Konkoly

    Michael McFarland has created novella worthy of inclusion in any of Stephen King’s anthologies. The novella incorporates a perfect mix of supernatural suspense and pure human malevolence, to leave the reader reeling with a dominant sense of helplessness, and a sliver hope, even at the most disturbing moments in the story. For a novella, the plot is perfectly paced, launching the reader into immediate distress, and dragging it out just long enough until the ceiling caves in. I found myself atta [...]

    Excellent and engaging novella that will seriously creep you out. I am a huge fan of horror/thriller movies and books, and I agree with another reviewer who said that this book belongs in the rankings with Stephen King. I'll just say I never want to live in a duplex now and/or a home with a crawlspace in the floor!

  • T.W. Brown

    I rarely read anything that gives me the chills or makes me so desperately want to get to the next pagebut feel apprehensive about what I will find when I get there. Duplex by Michael James McFarland does just that! I found myself swept up by a story that I kept feeling I had a handle on, only to be thrown just a bit off balance by a crafty turn in the story. One of the strongest features is how well parts of the tale are IMPLIED. McFarland excels in giving you just enough information so that yo [...]

    Having read McFarland's excellent zombie novel 'WORMWOOD', I just had to give this novella a look, and I was NOT disappointed.When Dan Hill accepts a new job position, he moves his family into a duplex temporarily. In spite of the disheveled young teenager who daughter Tia keeps noticing, the neighborhood seems like a nice placed then come the strange sounds, late at night.McFarland quickly builds the tension in this one, a creepy little thriller that is likely to strike a primal chord in reader [...]

    This book cuts straight to the point without feeling rushed. The story centres around a family who have just moved to their new rented home. To be honest, this was the first time in a long time a book has actually unsettled me. I would be interested to know if the video element was inspired by a certain popular series of horror films? Regardless, it fitted seamlessly into the story. The blend of human evil and the supernatural was great and I appreciated the fact that the presence in the house n [...]

    I read this book in an hour and a half - could not put it down. Although I figured out the perp and the method before it was solidified, it didn't stop me from reading. This book is the first book to give me actual chills since those Scary Stories books that I read in the early 90s as a kid. Bra-vo!!!

    I just finished "Duplex" to-day, it is brilliant! Duplex is everything that I love in a good book! Its scary and eerie! It is a fast paced book with a really good story! I loved the characters, I loved the story, I loved EVERYTHING about "Duplex!" Five stars for a five star story!!!

  • Dawna

    I really enjoyed this book. The author tells a great story and keeps the suspense and angst going till the very end. do yourself a favor and get this book for your kindle today!! its well worth it!!!

  • Helen

    I've just read the whole of this short novel in one sitting and was thoroughly gripped from start to finish. I've found Kindle freebies to be a bit hit or miss - this was a little gem! Dan and Jamie Hill are a likeable couple who move into a new home with their daughter and it isn't long before things start going bump in the night. Just another haunted house tale? I thought so but no, the story takes us in another nightmarish direction - although there is a supernatural element which blends effe [...]

  • Laurie

    What a great story. This book is short and gets to the action right away! The characters are thrown into a nightmare and must find a way to survive and save each other. Great story, wonderful characters and the ghost is a great touch!

  • Chris

    Fast and intriguing read.Great book as a fast read. Although I think that the story could have been fleshed out more, I did enjoy it. My biggest complaint is character development.

  • Selinalynn

    pretty darkbut satisfying

  • Michael McFarland

    No rating. I wrote it.

  • Patty

    Me pareció una novela entretenida pero al final también se me hizo algo predecible. Me hubiera gustado que se hablara más sobre el fantasma.
