What the Critics Say

"If ghost stories are your thing, you will absolutely love the latest novella, The Orphan Choir by Sophie Hannah.… This book is part of a new series of special commissions by Hammer (of horror film fame). She says, 'When I was invited to write a novella for the new Hammer imprint, my first thought was, "Ooh, yes, but it must be terrifying.”' Don’t worry. It is." ( Red magazine)
"For me, it’s Sophie Hannah’s The Orphan Choir, with its darker undertones and slow-building finale, that really steals the spotlight… Her subtle clues build up to bring the book to a powerful climax… It’s actually the more realistic elements of Louise’s story, and Hannah’s portrayal of a mother’s unconditional love that make this book a truly chilling read" (Book Wars, Stylist)

"This is an old-fashioned horror story, given a modern spin by the likeable narrator. It has a creepy cinematic feel and races along to its frightening ending." (Sunday Mirror

"The Orphan Choir is an enjoyably creepy read with the psychological depth that Sophie Hannah is known for. Reading it late at night, I had to put the book aside during one of the most frightening sequences for fear of being too spooked to sleep - and that's exactly what I want from a ghost story." (Rich Tapestry Reads

"a beautifully constructed, atmospheric chiller which I highly recommend" (Joanne-Sheppard)

Turned out good at the end

As I read the book I wondered where it was going as the plot was very narrow and there where not many characters involved..... Quite a mundane plot .... It is in the last fifth of the book where the story lies and this will have you thinking back through the book and leaves an impression on you..... The plot does build but I felt it took a long time until I didn't want to stop reading because I needed to know what was happening but it got there in the end.
