Little's readers love his work for many reasons, but one of the big ones is the way he uses wild, often surreal images in it. The Haunted is no exception.
-Horror Drive-In

Synopsis

The Perry family's new house is perfect-except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. Pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising.

The personal take on the ending was Little at his most literary as his prose achieved maximum emotional impact.

But it seems as if Little has held back here: readers expecting things to get as demented as in past novels may be a bit disappointed.
