    1. Andrew Leon's novel, The House on the Corner whisked me away to when I was kid. Specifically, at an age when I thought I was going to find a Tyrannosaurus Rex skull just under the dirt at my feet if I would just dig a little deeper, or that I would discover a secret formula for super strength by mixing my mom's household cleaners together in a mad chemistry experiment (didn't work FYI - but I did discover a powerful grass killer). That's what this book is, it's a big what if. What if something a [...]


    2. I really enjoyed this story and the fact that it is set in the 80's was a little extra special to me as I was a child in the 80's. Andrew has a way with telling a story from a kids perspective. My nine year old son really enjoyed this book as well.


    3. I liked this little yarn spun by Mr. Leon. It took me back to the eighties, had plenty of nerdy D&D references, and really made me remember how cool Star Wars was as a kid. I mean was pretty cool (especially the whole Hoth sequence).I think that the first third of this book will appeal to people who just like to hang out with screaming kids (let's call it "character building") for lack of a better description. If asked for a synopsis of these chapters, I would say "a family with three loud a [...]


    4. My main problem with The House on the Corner is I keep wanting to call it House on Pooh Corner. And while Andrew Leon's novel is aimed at younger folk, it's certainly no Winnie the Pooh. Nor is it any kind of nursery tale. Despite the fact that 'House' is a fantasy, it's as real as real gets. The three heroes - siblings Tom, Sam and Ruth – behave like real kids. Which means they fight (a lot). I loved this. I've read way way too many books where the kids are all perfect angels (gak) and, havin [...]


    5. The mostly first person edition and the start of an intended series. So, I want to start off by saying something that is probably going to sound horrible (though I don't mean it to be) but it was a prevalent thought in my head at the start of this book, so I'm going to do it. This book made me glad I am just an aunt and not a parent because at the start of this book, the kids are annoying. That said, let me add that they're very well written because I know siblings are like that. I have three of [...]


    6. This starts off like the stereotypical haunted house story. The Howard family (Air Force master sergeant Will, his wife Claire, 12-year-old Tom, 10-year-old Sam, and 6-year-old Ruth) move from Denver to Shreveport, Louisiana. The house they move into is old and spooky-looking with a lot of flaking paint, dusty, and overly large rooms. Some of those rooms have strange things in them. Oh, and the house's last inhabitants disappeared.So through 40% of the book I kept waiting for there to be the bum [...]


    7. Written from the point of view of three children, The House on the Corner is a tale filled with adventure and mystery. Leon is a master of pacing, building the tension slowly, and revealing the magic of his world in just the right amount of flow, so that as your curiosity grows and grows, you begin to forget you're actually still just reading a book.Dungeons and Dragons, Star Wars, and plenty of pizza don't hurt either, especially if you happened to grow up in the 80s.


    8. Great eighties all-Americana vibe, with kids as protagonists and written from their point of view. I prefer third person with novels, and would've rated 5 stars if this had been the case with House on the Corner. This is an opinion and opinion notwithstanding, Leon tackles the perspectives of the children as if he is recalling his very own childhood.


    9. I am not the target audience for this book, but I really enjoyed it anyway. The beginning was a little slow, but once 'things' start happening, the story is incredibly compelling. This could spawn quite a few sequels.



    10. This was a great book. I really enjoyed the way the story came about and how it gave a new twist to things we have all read about before.
