    • I enjoyed The House Eaters and have given it four stars. The characters were engaging and likeable. I would have liked more background on the Tabby and her illness but enjoyed her interactions with her brother Nick. Sarah was a fun character and added some strength to the read. I would read more from this author.Lori PescatoreAuthor of Human BlendEarth Blend (Coming soon)


    • (Review originally published at Red Adept Reviews.)Overall: 3 3/4 StarsA solid effort that didn't fully work for me. None of the issues were fatal flaws, and I'm sure the things that bothered me will be no big deal to others.Plot/Storyline: 3 StarsI enjoyed several elements here, and read along with no desires to "ditch," but there were still a handful of things which took away from my overall enjoyment. I felt like there were a few needed scenes missing between people, three secondary storyline [...]


    • Reading Aaron Polson's "The House Eaters" reminded me of why I am terrified of basements, and why I vow never to live in a house that has one. His intertwining of Indian Legend with a story of a HOUSE that seems to be perpetually haunted is intriguing and exciting. This combined with the relationships and angst of the teenage years is a perfect read for the YA genre. I really enjoyed the book and I very much enjoyed the fact that the narrator/main character, Nick wasn't shallow like most young m [...]



    • The House Eaters is a pretty clever combination of two genres: The new kid in school, fresh from moving from the city to a rural area and the creepy house around the corner surrounded by rumors and legends.Nick has moved to the Hollows from the suburbs of Kansas with his mother and father as well as his younger sister. His father just happens to have grown up in the Hollows and also happens to be the Senior English teacher: Nick's english teacher.It's hinted at that Nick's sister has an undefine [...]


    • After reading (and loving) Polson's March 2011 offering, We Are The Monsters, I knew I had to find something else by this author to read.The House Eaters did not disappoint. Though, for me, not as chilling and atmospheric as We Are The Monsters, The House Eaters showcases well Polson's gift for capturing a teen voice and for brisk and entertaining YA horror fiction that also happens to be tasteful and well-written.The House Eaters is set in Broughton's Hollow, a blip-on-a-map nowhere Kansas town [...]


    • Nick can’t stand his new life. Leaving the city to start up life in Barton Hallow, a middle of nowhere town with nothing to do and nowhere to go he thinks things can’t get any worse. Then his parents stop talking to each other, too wrapped up in their own problems to worry about his. That’s when Nick discovers The House. Built into the side of a hill The House looks out over the rest of the neighborhood like a wraith…and then he starts hearing voices and seeing doors that shouldn’t exi [...]


    • I got this as part of a free Kindle book dealie from called "Alone in the Dark: Three Short Novels. All three stories happen to teen-aged kids from Springdale, Kansas. They are probably more suited to the YA crowd, but I enjoyed them anyway. Probably my biggest criticism is all three are basically ghost stories and the author doesn't stray far from a basic storyline with his characters. There's a homecoming, replete with the evil/nasty Homecoming Queen, some jerk football players, the geeky her [...]


    • Nick's family moves to a small outskirt of a small town. In fact only 3 house's sold in new division. Up the street is a big old house thats abandon. Nick is starting his senior year the week after they move. His dad is one of his teachers. He has a crush on a girl named Cat, who's on again off again takes to bullying Nick. Tabby his sister is a freshman and had a few health problems last year. His mother was laid off and drinks in the afternoon. Old weird guy and newly weds only people live in [...]


    • Aaron Polson's The House Eaters is a tight and trim YA horror novel that, in first person POV, captures that teenage voice wonderfully well. Nick, our protag, and his sister Tabby have moved from the Kansas City suburbs into a new development near a small town and are creeped out by a local abandoned House that seems to call to them, speak to them. They know the House means trouble, but are nevertheless drawn to explore it. This, along with a mysterious neighbor, some teenage shenanigans, and a [...]


    • This is a great book for students who hate to read. The writing and story is easy to follow and full of characters who most young readers can relate with. I do wish I was able to read more about many minor characters and I had to read the ending twice to understand what was going on (perhaps by paying better attention the second time) but overall I commend the author for the choices he made. Even as my busy days and nights kept me away from reading, the plot was constantly on my mind as I was tr [...]


    • Reading Aaron Polson's "The House Eaters" brought me back to when I was in High School back in the 80's watching one of the old campy horror movies. This story had all of the elements from one of those movies: teenagers, abandoned house, spooky basement, creepy neighbor, indian legends and burial grounds. The only thing missing from my childhood nightmares was the monster under the bed. Overall I found this not great, but highly entertaining.


    • A great set up - a subdivision that's barely occupied, built on top of an old neighborhood, a creepy abandoned house, whispers in the night, a sister who knows more than she should. I really got into this book quickly and overall it was a good book. My complaint is that the end happened so quickly it was rather anti-climatic. After the buildup I had hoped for a bit more. Not a bad easy to read horror story though


    • Excellent. Read almost the whole book in one sitting. The descriptive writing made me feel tat was in rural Kansas.
