An Eerie Darkness on Campus: Catherine House by Elisabeth Thomas
Updated: Sep 23
An eerie experience encompasses Ines Murillo who is fortunate enough to be accepted into this modern-day, very elite, experimental college of sorts. If Ines stops snooping to discover what the super-students are working on, and what happened to her new friend, Baby, she might just survive - unless she already knows too much.
Ira Levin's 1972 suspense thriller, The Stepford Wives, came to mind when I read this atmospheric book. The isolated setting and premise of Catherine House, with its weird freedom and school's control are intriguing. Things aren't overly explained which some readers may love but, others hate. The creepiness of Catherine House is well conveyed.
