What other readers are saying about this title:
Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
This is a psychological cat-and-mouse game told by two narrators. One is the offspring of the former head porter at St. Oswald’s school for boys who, as a young child pretended to be a student at the school. The other is Ozzie’s crusty old classics master Roy Straitly. The first narrator, who concentrates mostly on what happened in the past, turns out to now be a new teacher at St O’s bent on bringing down the school. As the book goes on we learn about what happened to them as a child. Then we see through Straitly’s eyes weird goings on at the school now as well as some insight into past occurances. All comes to a head on bonfire night with old Straitly coming out as the hero. Not quite as suspenseful as it was painted to be. One plot twist was very easy to guess. Nevertheless I enjoyed it.
