Canterville Ghost (version 2)

Book cover
By: (1854-1900)

In Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde, the reader is taken on a thrilling journey full of humor, mystery, and insight. The story follows the Otis family as they move into Canterville Chase, a haunted mansion plagued by the ghost of Sir Simon. Despite attempts by the ghost to scare them away, the Otis family remains undeterred, leading to a series of comedic and supernatural encounters.

Wilde's witty writing style shines through in this novella, blending elements of horror and comedy seamlessly. The characters are well-developed and engaging, with the dynamic between the skeptical American family and the traditional English ghost adding depth to the narrative. As the story unfolds, themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the power of kindness emerge, adding a poignant layer to the tale.

Overall, Canterville Ghost is a delightful and entertaining read that will captivate readers of all ages. Wilde's clever storytelling and unique blend of genres make this novella a timeless classic that continues to enchant readers over a century after its original publication.

Book Description:
A modern American family move into a traditionally drafty and very haunted English mansion. So far so good but anyone knowing Wilde can expect twists and turns to make it interesting. In this cast the crusty old ghost has a tough time convincing the family he exists and then in frightening them. This is extremely frustrating of course to him and as the protagonist of the story, takes matters (and non-matters) into his hands to deal with the upstart and irreverent new tenants. (phil chenevert )
