Death in the Castle, by Pearl S. Buck

death-in-the-castleThe first weekend of May, a cold front came through and got me right into the mood for RIP reading. Death in the Castle was the second of three books I read.

Buck is famous for The Good Earth, which is a beautiful and wonderful book. I found this book in all its 1960s mass market goodness at a library sale for 50 cents last year, and finally sat down to read it during this Halloween-ish weekend. Starts as an American vs British culture clash, turns into a ghost story, then morphs into a psychological thriller. It was a fun read, but very uneven, and not terribly memorable. Made for a great afternoon’s reading, but don’t expect The Good Earth from it.
