Reader Review: How to Sell a Haunted House

How to Sell and Haunted House by Grady Hendrix book coverAfter her parents’ deaths, Louise goes back to her home where she must sort out selling their house with her estranged brother, Mark. However, when they ask a real estate agent to come take a look at the house, she refuses to list it because she has a personal policy against selling haunted houses. In order to un-haunt the house, Louise and Mark need to face up to the ghosts of their family’s past, the most vicious of which is Pupkin, their ventriloquist mom’s favorite puppet.

I love how well “How to Sell a Haunted House” dealt with complex family dynamics, and the way family secrets come back to haunt us.

Three words that describe this book: Quirky, complex, emotional

You might want to pick this book up if: You want to read about a post 9/11 radical puppet collective.

  1. I read this book! And finished it…too many books not to just put down the ones that don’t hold your interest. Great story.
