    I ll start by saying that I loved the movie I m a big fan of both Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska Not to mention I m a huge fan of horror movies, so mix the three together, and I am most pleased.This was my first movie novelization and I liked it a lot There are many nuances that are missed with a movie The book bringsdepth to the characters, their feelings and their growth.Also, we get to see inside the past of Thomas and Lucille Sharpe We find out what their parents had been like I ll start by saying that I loved the movie I m a big fan of both Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska Not to mention I m a huge fan of horror movies, so mix the three together, and I am most pleased.This was my first movie novelization and I liked it a lot There are many nuances that are missed with a movie The book bringsdepth to the characters, their feelings and their growth.Also, we get to see inside the past of Thomas and Lucille Sharpe We find out what their parents had been like Although Lucille has no excuse at the end of the day, we learn what turned her insane and made her the despicable person she is.So, if you liked the movie, you should definitely give the novelization a try And if you read the book first, go check out the movie The special effects are simply amazing

    I am sooooooo disappointed by the missed opportunity involved in the publisher not listing the author as Edith Cushing.

I saw this movie a few days ago and had to buy the book and I am going to buy the movie when the price goes down I loved them both, I don t care what anyone else thinks, they made me happy because they were so good and creepy Plus, I wanted to smack some sense into people All Edith Cushing wanted to do was to become a writer, but she was turned down because she is a woman And it was her understanding the man that turned her down believed that women should only write about love which infuriated Edith as she wants to write what she wants She is a woman without means as her father, Carter Cushing, was very wealthy as he was a builder of beautiful buildings Unfortunately, this caught the attention of one Sir Thomas Sharpe and he began to woo her YES WOO This was frowned upon by Edith s father and her long time family friend since she was a child, Dr Alan McMichael Alan was secretly in love with Edith, but he was too close of a friend for her to be interested Edith s father and Alan didn t think something was quite right with Mr Sharpe and they were right Edith can also see ghosts which would be cool in a way When Edith was child and her mother died her mother visited her one night scaring her to death of course to warn her But seconds later, as she turned on her side, she went absolutely rigid with shock She felt the decaying hand wrap around her shoulder, smelled the damp earth of the grave, and heard the desiccated lips, a hoarse distortion of the voice she had known better than her own as it whispered in her ear My child, when the time comes, beware of Crimson PeakIf Edith only knew what that meant at the time Edith s father paid off Mr Sharpe and his sister Lucille so they would go away and leave Edith be.but that didn t really work They made a show of leaving and Lucille did head back to Allerdale Hall at one point, but Thomas didn t leave without Edith AND, Edith s father was brutally murdered They didn t call it murder at the time but Alan had his reservations about the final report None of it mattered for Thomas got what he wanted Sir Thomas s arm was around her, which would have been a breach of propriety had they not been affianced It was all too soon, under circumstances too horrible to comprehend, and perhaps he was looking through the prism of his jealousy, but when he regarded the way Sir Thomas held Edith, it seemed that the man was determined to keep her in his grasp rather than to ease her suffering She looked trapped, not protected Then Sir Thomas noticed his gaze and held it, steadily It was an unspoken duel Edith saw none of it Alan knew that he had already lost, and so he tipped his hat, as one would do under such a circumstance to salute a grieving relative of the deceased Encumbered by umbrella and fiance, Sir Thomas as unable to return the gesture, and so, inclined his head. So now it s welcome to your nightmare my darling bride and nightmares Edith did have at her new home..living nightmares She had a few different ghosts peeping in on her and checking out the new bride and a nice little tip, if you hear things in the hall or other places, don t go lookingYou silly dog, she chided, but there was a quaver in her voice She was fighting to stay brave How did you get locked out She reached her hand around the knob and pulled as, behind her, the little dog barked She startled, then turned to see it and behind the door, a linen closet, not a room and crowded in, something, something, something crimson whimpered it whimpered and scratched incessantly Of course it saw of course it knew what it was Rolling eyes, a clacking jaw, scarlet fear, a ruby red woman shape, scratching with fingers of bone A trail of brilliant, fresh blood floated up toward the top of the closet, defying space just as the monstrous apparition defied time But it wanted, need to be seen it was wild for her to turn her head back from the dog However, she did not turn She did not see But the door slammed shut. All the while another ghost was watching the whole thing and thinking things in its head Creepy Edith pulls the door back open and finds a closet with nothing in it but containers that had recordings on them, these come out later in the book and the movie And then when you think your over the closet thingFrom the floor, pulling itself out, a specter of purest scarlet, a grotesque revenant, emerged painfully, struggling, sucking its essence through the floor the spine first, like taffy, then the back of the head while an arm withdrew as from a viscous, sticky sludge Bright red bones stretched in unnatural shapes, weirdly, wrongly jointed the hand slapped down as if for leverage, purchase Every part of it red the second arm raising upward, digging itself out And as the bride stared, paralyzed in horror, it began to crawl toward her Faceless, scuttling Implacable, coming to her, at her, for her. The dog had the right idea and cut a rug out of there At some point, Edith starts to realize that things are just not right in the place Her husband acts weird, her sister in law acts weird and she finds out that there were three other brides and they were all killed and she is being poisoned as well She starts trying to make her escape Meanwhile, Alan can t get the idea out of his head that things are wrong He talks to Edith s lawyer and they both agree, also a hired man brings him some old papers showing where the Sharpe s mother was brutally killed He then decides he s going to get Edith She has already had papers sent over to sign all of her money into helping Thomas with his home and business, we see what s going on now When Alan gets there he finds Edith with a broken leg from trying to escape the horrible Sharpe s But Thomas has started to have feelings for Edith and tries to help, his sister was the killer all along She stabs Alan and then Thomas pretends to stab him again while whispering some things to him Edith makes a mad dash away, Alan gets hidden, and crazy ass Lucille kills Thomas Yeah, she s a nut job But she gets hers when she goes to kill Edith and Thomas ghost shows up to help her in a sense Edith takes Lucille down and her ghost is trapped inside the home forever or until it is torn down I guess Oh and the creepy ghosts, they were just trying to help Edith figure things out She finally figured that out but damn, it s hard to think something looking like those ghosts are trying to help you I would have died on the spot There is a lotthings to the story but read it and watch it for yourself Oh and they called the place Crimson Peak because the clay would come up through the ground in the snow and make it blood red.I do believe that Alan lived and they all lived happily ever after, but they just show them getting help from the town, I just added the happy ever after And the ghost of Lucille Sharpe, alone, all alone forever, seated at the piano in the unforgiving cold Playing the first note of the lullaby.

    This lushly written book serves as a wonderful companion to the visually sumptous film of the same name.I highly recommend both book and movies as counterpoints to each other each illuminates and expands upon the other The book serves to inform us a bitabout the characters relations and motivations that are hinted at in the film, but at the same time even the gorgeous prose of the novel can t quite capture the visceral feel you get when you see the red clay of Crimson Peak for the first This lushly written book serves as a wonderful companion to the visually sumptous film of the same name.I highly recommend both book and movies as counterpoints to each other each illuminates and expands upon the other The book serves to inform us a bitabout the characters relations and motivations that are hinted at in the film, but at the same time even the gorgeous prose of the novel can t quite capture the visceral feel you get when you see the red clay of Crimson Peak for the first time.4.5 Gothic stars rounded down for both film and movie

    3.5Crimson Peak is one of my favourite movies, so I was intrigued when I saw this novelization of it I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying it quite a bit It s not as good as the film, and no description ever quite captures the beauty of what you see on screen in particular, the house is muchoppressive, eerie and stunning in the film, and the way it seems to bleed and breathe istold than shown here, so lacks the same impact but this is still a decent adaptation I 3.5Crimson Peak is one of my favourite movies, so I was intrigued when I saw this novelization of it I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying it quite a bit It s not as good as the film, and no description ever quite captures the beauty of what you see on screen in particular, the house is muchoppressive, eerie and stunning in the film, and the way it seems to bleed and breathe istold than shown here, so lacks the same impact but this is still a decent adaptation I don t know if it would work as well if you haven t seen the film, because I was filling in a lot of imagery myself, and picturing the actors performances as I read There were a few moments where things felt a little stilted, or when the thoughts of Edith felt out of place, too modern in terms of language for 1886 This was mainly in the first few chapters, and would jolt me out the reading experience.At times this book really highlighted how powerful a single second, a brief shot, can be It doesn t always transfer, and I think some tension is lost Despite these quibbles, I had a nice time reading this The final third worked especially well for me, and despite knowing the ending, I found myself staying awake to finish, which is always a good sign that a book is doing something right

    I ve never read the novelisation of a film before, but this was surprisingly good I loved the film and wanted to knowabout the characters, which the novel provided Besides some expansion of the inner dialogue of the characters it was very close to the film, and I would have liked it to have been developed further The narration of the audiobook was very good though and the prose read like a modern take on a Victorian novel, which was precisely what this was If you liked the film I d rec I ve never read the novelisation of a film before, but this was surprisingly good I loved the film and wanted to knowabout the characters, which the novel provided Besides some expansion of the inner dialogue of the characters it was very close to the film, and I would have liked it to have been developed further The narration of the audiobook was very good though and the prose read like a modern take on a Victorian novel, which was precisely what this was If you liked the film I d recommend this It also wouldn t be a bad idea to read the novelisation before watching the film, as it would give a littlecontext to the story

    4 stars I don t really read novelized versions of movies but I had to read this one because of how obsessed I was with the film This book really complemented the film in many ways I loved being in Thomas head as well as Alan s I thought when I first started this book it would just be in Edith s but nope We even got a ghost s POV.I really, really loved this story Many of you know I love tortured souls in my characters but Thomas and his sister Lucille were twisted beyond repair I felt so m 4 stars I don t really read novelized versions of movies but I had to read this one because of how obsessed I was with the film This book really complemented the film in many ways I loved being in Thomas head as well as Alan s I thought when I first started this book it would just be in Edith s but nope We even got a ghost s POV.I really, really loved this story Many of you know I love tortured souls in my characters but Thomas and his sister Lucille were twisted beyond repair I felt so much sadness for them in the film but this book just amplified it We get some of their trying childhood and just a small glimpse of the abuse they suffered from their parents.We also get to see the hold Lucille has on her brother and how she minimizes his worth to fit her needs I loved reading about his developing feelings for Edith and how she was his, light Nancy Holder retold this story really well Her writing was phenomenal I felt like I was sucked into the world of Allerdale Hall and was living the horrors with Edith.One thing I didn t like was view spoiler Edith telling Alan that she loved him She was too much of an individual person and didn t really acknowledge his feelings for her yet right at the end she was all in love with him She spends the whole book and movie talking about her love for Thomas and trying to justify the horrors he committed with his sister that her all of a sudden loving Alan didn t quite make sense hide spoiler
