The character's off-the-wall attitude helps to bring an important balance to the scary side of the book. The horror scenes achieve a wonderfully tense atmosphere, and the book provides some fun frights. But there's also an acknowledgement of the almost ridiculous nature of the over-the-top ghost stories as well. The plotting doesn't pretend to provide realistic behavior and flow to the action. The secrets of hauntings and murders are uncovered through all-too-convenient means, but because the script doesn't take things so seriously at all times. There's no pretension of deeper meanings of morals to these stories. It's just about the experience of a good scare and how it can be as entertaining as a good joke. Read Full Review
