by Virginia Hamilton(Author), Eros Keith(Author, Illustrator). It's been a while since I've finished a book in 24 hours, but Virginia Hamilton's The House of Dies Drear moves quickly, almost every chapter ending with a cliffhanger of some kind that pushes forward to its satisfying conclusion. It's effectively a story about father-son relationships, smartly wrapped within a ghost story, as 13-year-old Thomas Small and his professor father learn the truth about the mysterious old Civil War era house the Small family moves into, outside Columbus, OH, and its connections to the Underground Railroad.

The Conclusion of the Dies Drear Chronicle. Thomas Small and his papa had taken to the woods to hunt or hike for hours on the hill above the bleak house of Dies Drear. But then, suddenly, it turned cold. Mr. Small had little free time from teaching at the college. On weekends he cataloged the wealth that had belonged to the long-dead abolitionist Dies Eddington Drear. There was a stupendous treasure hidden for a hundred years in a secret cavern within the hillside. Thomas left his rifle at home.

  • It's been a while since I've finished a book in 24 hours, but Virginia Hamilton's The House of Dies Drear moves quickly, almost every chapter ending with a cliffhanger of some kind that pushes forward to its satisfying conclusion. It's effectively a story about father-son relationships, smartly wrapped within a ghost story, as 13-year-old Thomas Small and his professor father learn the truth about the mysterious old Civil War era house the Small family moves into, outside Columbus, OH, and its connections to the Underground Railroad.

    Hamilton develops an engaging cast of characters, especially Mr. Pluto, the sinister caretaker of the house, and does a great job of weaving important bits about slavery and the Civil Rights era for context, without making it the focus of the story. For kids, it's a perfect complement to Christopher Paul Curtis' The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963. Highly recommended!

  • This award winning book was not exactly my cup of tea. I liked re setting around a house along the Underground Railroad. The caves added fear and mystery, but the plot was not satisfying.

  • This book was a favorite when I was a child. It inspired my interest in the Underground Railroad. I bought this book to share with my children. It arrived in perfect condition.

  • Remember this book reading as a kid, I Have the movie but the book Is SO MUCH BETTER!!! Yes I bought two, but came on time and well packaged!!!

  • Daniel - age 7: I really enjoyed this book. It was very interesting and exciting. I am glad my mom read it to me for our chapter story.

  • Great book. Exactly as described

  • This was the assigned summer reading for my 8th grade grandson. He was mildly interested at the outset but he really stayed tuned as I read. There is enough mystery to keep a young reader with dyslexia attentive and involved. Well written! I am his assigned reader as he is an auditory learner. This was a good experiecne for both of us!

  • My grandson had problems reading so when I found this tape I bought it .He didn't listen to it so I put it on in the car and enjoyed the story. Not many people use cassette tapes any more so I don't imagine there will be a big demand, but I enjoyed it.
