Slade House - David Mitchell

A promising start and then I found that we were back in the world of horologists and eternals, in what is, in essence, a companion (if a lot shorter) volume to Bone Clocks. The setting in a single location works well and for much of the book it seems like a classic horror with great twists and a somewhat cruel trend in killing off very likeable heroes. In the end, though, I felt a little cheated that the central idea was taken from the earlier book, and so there was little here to get excited about.
