I listened to this on audio and I listened carefully – I really did. I thought the accent of the narrator and the speed in which she read really affected this novel. I did enjoy her accent but I would have enjoyed the novel much more had she slowed down so I could fully understand everything she sai...

Genuinely creepy and based on a old ballad; however, I felt that the plotting fell apart towards the end of the book, and that the pacing was a bit off. (Nothing happens and then too much happens.)

I read Kelly’s review of this at Stacked and immediately wanted to get into this book! Here is the Kobo store’s summary: In an exquisitely chilling debut novel, four children unravel the mystery of a family curse and a ghostly creature known in folklore as Long Lankin.

Long Lankin is a tale that is quite slow paced, but in such a way that makes you fall addicted to the story. Its depictions of the creepy atmosphere, blood-curling ghostly creatures, and fascinating history leave you absolutely glued to its pages, not to mention chilled to the bone! Set in the 1950'...
