Rezension "The book is genuinely spooky and suspenseful , with appealing characters and great dialogue, and all shot through with Stroud's dry wit. Stroud is a genius at inventing an utterly believable world which is very much like ours, but so creepily different.

So can someone explain to me why, in the copy I read, the temperatures are in Fahrenheit?! Almost everywhere in the world including here in Canada we use Celsius.
No child in the UK would use Fahrenheit. I am assuming, much like changes made to Harry Potter, that the publisher decided to change the Celsius to Fahrenheit to market to children in the USA. Now, you're thinking to yourself, but Mel how many times can they possibly mention the temperature?
A lot!! As one of the main indicators of 'visitors' aka ghosts or spirits is that the temperature drops it is mentioned a few dozen times.
Now I realize this is clearly not Stroud's choice. However, instead of changing the scale used what about putting a conversion chart at the beginning or end of the book. Maybe we can teach the USA children about Celsius instead of forcing the rest of the world to manage the metric used by one country. This is a classic example of publishing houses catering to the USA and stuffing everyone else into that category especially us Canadians.
Okay, rant over. So many questions! Overall Stroud is a genius.

He takes a simple idea, the world is plagued by visitors that are a menace and can kill people with ghost touch, and creates an intricate world around it. Only children can see the manifestations and so they are the best equipped to fight these menaces and clear places of the visitors. Obviously this comes with it's own set of morale questions.
What age is too young to start?
When things go wrong is the child responsible? Is it worth the sacrifice of youth to battle the visitors? These questions are more are handled exquisitely in The Screaming Staircase. I'm so sad it's such a quick read as I didn't want to leave the world yet. I'll be ordering the next couple in this series immediately! I'm also going to be purchasing this series for my year-old nephew for the holidays as I know he will love the creepiness. What kid doesn't want to read about a 'red room' which fills with ghost plasma that looks like blood, a staircase where the screaming incapacities you, a ghost so unhappy she kills current residents of the home?
And these are only examples of some of the things are three lead characters encounter. Bring on the sarcasm and fun! The other thing that is amazing about Stroud is that he is able to write kids books that are sarcastic and funny. Alongside all that creepiness and atmosphere our three lead kids are able to poke fun at each other and fight over the silliest things who gets the last cookie ; just like normal children do. Without a doubt the humour in The Screaming Staircase is critical to breaking some of the tension and scariness that comes along with the story itself.
Am I a child or an adult?
Most of all what I love is Stroud's handling of the conflicts and emotions that come from children playing at being adults. As the eldest child with two younger siblings in my family one of whom has Type 1 diabetes I remember a lot of moments as a kid where I felt I had to pretend to be more adult than I was. Even when it wasn't, I often felt like it was my responsibility to handle situations. When can they show weakness? How do they convince adults they are competent and capable?
And at what point is it okay to just collapse and let someone else take care of things.We appreciate your feedback. Ein Jahr, in dem ich nicht gebloggt habe.
