#Bookreview: 3 AM By Amy Cross 3/5 Stars

Overview: Two families in an apartment building next to a set of train tracks. This building has a bad reputation, so bad even the police won’t go near it. At 3 am every night someone comes to the doors of these two families and terrorizes them. Upon first moving in, the shifty manager warned them not to be up at that time. No matter what happens do not be up at that time, nor open the door. People start going missing, and the sounds of trains passing become the only constant in their lives. The nightly activities start to come to a head when the sister of one of the families arrives in search of them. As she digs deep into the history of the building and train tracks, she is horrified by what she finds and the possible fate of her family.

Opinion: This ghost story was recommended to me by my aunt. I love ghost stories and jump on the story. At first I didn’t care for it because it was confusing. Aside from trying to set up a spooky story, the prologue has nothing to do with the rest of the book. Even when I thought the author would tie up loose ends at the end of the book, she fails. Then the chapters go back and forth from one point of view to another without any heads up at all. Then once you get used to it by chapters, the author starts changing perspective in the middle of the chapters.

Now the idea of the whole story seems very close to the movie 13 Ghosts, good movie but sadly did poorly in box office. Infrasonics create a disruption in the veil between this world and the next. These infrasonic waves are being created by the vibrations from the train and absorbed by the building. Allowing the veil to thin and ghosts to come through. This relates to the movie because a glass house is created by a mad man, with a machine inside that requires 13 specific ghosts to charge it and bring the mad man back to life. Which is similar to what someone in the building is trying to do.

There were also some inconsistencies in timing and things happening. I will say the ending was good, simply because you are not quite sure as to who all survived and who didn’t.

Recommend: With the information I’ve given, yes. See if there is something I missed.
