As a child, this book terrified me to the extent that I developed night terrors of creepy dark figures looming over me while I slept. Took 25 yrs to get over it. His writing style is classic Poe with a twist for childhood. Masterful writing.

In short:

Cons: terrifying story for children
Pros: it was only $6

It’s quaint to revisit this story set in Michigan and remember how I used to be scared so bad. I do sleep with the bathroom light on, now.

Just saying.

I have to admit that I picked up this novel because of the movie adaptation coming out soon but it completely blew me away and I will definitely be reading more of Bellairs work.
If you are a fan of Rowling's Harry Potter, this is a great novel with a very similar feel from a time before Harry was ever dreamed of.
Though it is definitely a YA novel, it really doesn't read like one. There is no preaching (even though the novel DOES have a good moral sub-text) and is written in such a way that, even as an adult reader, I did not feel like Bellairs was "writing down" to me in this work.
This is a great example of suspense and urban fantasy (also before that term was dreamt of) and should be required reading for any lover of either of those genres.

I heard about the upcoming movie so I figured what the heck, I'd read the book. As an adult reading the book, it's simply three stars, but for kid readers, I'd give it four. I can see kids enjoying it, but after all the Harry Potter books, they probably wouldn't regard The House with a Clock in Its Walls as a "great" book.

The Puffin book edition has the original Edward Gorey illustrations.

I discovered this book at my elementary school library as a child and I LOVED it. It terrified me, but I loved it. I've reread it every decade or so and recommended it to children I think might enjoy it. Now that I see a movie is coming I had to read it again. Reading it with an adult mind is very different and it's not scary but it's nice to revisit my old "reading stomping grounds" and remember the magic of falling in love with a book as a young girl. John Bellairs is dear to me and I read most of his other books when I was young. He was writing creepy kids books way before Goosebumps. I highly recommended.

Such a great book for a little older Elementary/middle school child. My son who is 12 loved it! We saw the preview of the new movie and had to read it. I was surprised to see it was published in the 70's. Definitely a great mystery. For parents on the fence about whether it's appropriate or not, it has pretty suspenseful parts, magic-good/evil, and raising the dead.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls by John Bellairs opens as ten-year-old Lewis travels to live with his Uncle Jonathan. Both of Lewis’ parents were in a fatal car accident. Jonathan enjoys spending time with his neighbor and best friend, Mrs. Zimmerman. The two of them include Lewis in everything, playing cards, secret passageways and the hunt for the clock in the walls of the house. Jonathan has searched many nights for the elusive clock, to no avail, and when Lewis sees him lurking around at night, Jonathan explains the history of the house. Mystery surrounds the house and it’s past inhabitants, Mr. and Mrs. Izard. I read this book after seeing the movie trailer and discovering the movie is based on this book. I enjoy reading the books first before seeing the movies that are made after them. Jack Black is the perfect actor for playing the role of Uncle Jonathan! It’s a fun, mysterious story to read and it’s geared towards middle school aged readers. 4 stars!

My kids loved this story when I read it aloud to them but it did not hold my interest. I found the pacing slow and not much happens. It’s also very dated in some of its descriptions, like constantly calling the main character Lewis fat in varying adjectives, which I did not like my children to hear and edited when I caught them. After we finished I took them to see the movie and I think it’s the first time I’ve ever liked a movie more than the book. The movie wisely added more fun and action.

As far as this edition itself only the cover has been changed. The book itself has a crammed small font that lacks white space and is annoying to read. I know my son likes a larger font to read so this could annoy younger readers.

So I read this because it has been made into a movie and I love to read.

This is a magical story of a boy who gets into mischief when he goes to live with his uncle.

Bad things happen but when you work together, good triumphs over evil.

It’s great for young kids, teens and adults looking for a fun read before Halloween. I look forward to the movie coming out and the rest of this series.
