Ouija by Zoé-Lee O’Farrell – review.


The only thing for certain is the deaths were no accident.

Rayner High School once a prestigious school stands in ruins after such a terrible event.

A year later, a group of friends return to the abandoned school and their nightmare begins.

Something wants to get out and won’t take NO for an answer…

About the author

Zoé O’Farrell grew up in Watford but left the town life to live by the sea down at the White Cliffs of Dover.

She spends her days working with numbers before escaping in the evening to the world of words and movies. Her go-to relaxation is watching a scary movie or reading a terrifying book!

She is a book blogger and tour organiser just to keep her extra busy. When she is not reading or writing, you can usually find her watching Watford FC or at a gig. Failing that she can be found rolling her eyes at her husband as he acts the same age as her spitfire of a Mini-Me whilst separating her two cats.

Ouija is her debut novel.

My thoughts

‘Ouija’ is a creepy and fantastic debut. I absolutely loved the old school feel to this book and imagined it to make a great film as the pictures in my head were so vivid. Give me a creepy building harnessing some evil force and that’s me happy. There’s nothing better than teenagers with their risk-taking and fearlessness, and this set of characters really brought the story to life.

Zoe painted this sense of impending doom with skill and ease. I felt those prickles on the back of my neck and I tensed up a few times. If you love horror and you enjoy that demonic edge, then Ouija is not to be missed.

I’d say that this book could also be read by teens and young adults who don’t scare too easily. It’s dark, exciting and also horrifically fun!

Thanks for reading!
