Overview: The Canterville Ghost

The Canterville Ghost is a classic novel by Oscar Wilde. Lord Canterville warns the Otis family that the home to which they are relocating is haunted and many people have left it behind in the dark hours of the night. The Otis family does not pay any attention to these warnings and moves into the house. As soon as they move in, they realize that the stories about the house being haunted are true and it is the ghost of Mr. Simon who is haunting the house. Sir Simon does not want to share his house with anyone. But he finds that he is not able to scare the Otis family like he did to the other families.

The narrator of the story is the ghost of Mr. Simon. It is a classic ghost story and the reader comes across a lot of surprises and twists and turns in the story. In this best seller, Oscar Wilde has proved his comic prowess. This book also contains Wallace Goldsmith's seventeen illustrations.

  1.  A FUNNY HORROR NOVEL. 5 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    THIS BOOK WAS JUST GREAT TO READ,I GOT THIS BOOK AS A BIRTHDAY GIFT AND BELIEVE ME,THIS IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT I HAVE EVER GOT,WHEN I SAW THE COVER OF THIS BOOK,IT WAS JUST HORRIFYING AND I THOUGH,AFTER READING THIS BOOK,I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT.
    BUT AFTER READING THIS BOOK,MY VIEWS TOTALLY CHANGED AND FROM THEN I FOLLOW A SIMPLE RULE OF LIFE,"DON,T JUDGE A THING FROM ITS APPEARANCE".
    SOME PARTS OF THIS BOOK WERE SO FUNNY THAT I COULD,T JUST CONTROL MYSELF FROM FALLING FROM MY CHAIR.
    THE STORY IS ABOUT A FAMILY WHO WISH TO BUY A MANSION,STILL KNOWING THE FACT THAT THE HOUSE WAS HAUNTED,THEY WERE NOT AFRAID OF ANYTHING AND WERE WILLING TO FACE THE GHOST.
    WHEN THE FAMILY SHIFTS TO THE MANSION,THERE WERE MANY INSTANCES WHEN THEY FACED THE GHOST,BUT INSTEAD OF GETTING FRIGHTENED,THEY HORRIFIED THE GHOST BY THEIR ACTS AND BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS THE GHOST.
    AFTER THESE ALL SILLY INSTANCES,FINALLY THE GHOST RETIRES FROM THE JOB OF FRIGHTENING PEOPLE.
    SO THE CONCLUSION IS ,THIS IS A GREAT NOVEL AND A GREAT BUY FOR A BOOK READER.
    Thank you for your feedback Was this review helpful to you?
