    A beautiful children's book that an adult can certainly enjoy The short chapters were jarring at first but then it seem to fit once the storyline played out I am intrigued by Russia and this satisfied that desire to learn about this fascination country and people There were an underlying message that I really appreciated read it and find out

    Not my favorite from Yelchin but I still liked the premise of this story It incorporated cool artwork a uniue background story set as a memoir discovered by the author and translated from the Russian and a good dose of Russian history

    This was very enjoyable and uite funny At first I was slightly suspicious of the tome as I am wont to be However my suspicions were soon gone from the galaxy and I became rather entertainedThe story itself was very excellent the pictures could be described by some adjective the funny parts were absolutely hilarious and the characters were all very amusingOverall I suppose I am forced to allow the things five stars from my overly generous hand

    Twelve year old Prince Lev Lvov moves in with his aunt at Falcon House It is a house that he will inherit as he is heir to the Lvov estate Lev wants to be just like his grandfather a general in the Russian army stern and strong Things are strange though at Falcon House where he finds wonders like an elevator in the home but also rooms that have not been touched in years As he enters the home Lev sees another young boy there playing on the banister Lev is sent to sleep in his grandfather’s old study where he can’t sleep and finds himself drawing and drawing with much skill than he ever had before In fact he finds it nearly impossible to put the pen down Slowly Lev starts to learn the secrets of his family and realize that some of the family secrets are terrifying than ghostsYelchin won a Newbery Honor for Breaking Stalin’s Nose Here he very successfully merges historical Russia with a dark ghost story Based on the premise of having found old notes and drawings from Lvov the book is immediately mysterious and filled with wonder There is the amazing setting of the huge mansion filled with things like death masks and a basement of mothballed clothes There are the servants who manage to work for his aunt despite her disdain and harshness There is the ghost who tells his own story but ever so slowly They all create a world of darkness and beguilementThen the book turns and changes becoming something deeper and filled with emotion It looks beyond the cranky aunt and into why she acts the way she does It examines the death of a boy and eventually becomes about who is responsible for it and why It looks at servants and royals at status and power It figures out what it takes to become someone willing to wield that power tooEntirely gorgeous haunting and deep this novel is chillingly dark and wonderfully dangerous Appropriate for ages 9 12

    Prince Lev Lvov leaves his beloved mother to travel to his family palace to take his rightful place as heir Things are not what they seem at the huge and daunting residence Sufficiently creepy and thrilling as Prince Lev confronts a ghost wronged by his grandfather

    Review posted on Page Turners Blog on 10312016In a strange house with a stranger history 12 year old Lev begins to unravel family secrets that have been carefully hidden Lev's sudden ability to draw makes the illustrations in the book somehow real They are a part of the story and not just pictures showing the story The family Lev finds at his grandfather's old estate is filled with mysterious characters like a gray little boy named VanyoushaAs the story unfolds we find ourselves in a story that brings a sad dread with it Slowly Lev begins to realize that there is to his grandfather than the General he knew The themes of destiny friendship and family secrets are explored beautifully in this deeper than you first think mysteryThis is a wonderfully creepy tale for middle grade readers ages 9 12 would be best and perfect for our spooky autumn days It's also a good way to introduce children to historical novels historical Imperial Russia is a richly layered place to start because the mystery will pull the readers through the history with an undeniable tension I'm planning on re reading it with my tween who loves history but hasn't gotten into reading mysteries She loves a bit of a sad story too and The Haunting of Falcon House will definitely satisfy that tooWe have an excerpt for you to share so you can see how Eugene incorporates footnotes in his writing They add an extra dimension of explanation that help frame the context and background of them moments he explained see post for excerpt

    This is the “memoir” of Prince Lev Lvov who travels to Falcon House his family's estate in Saint Petersburg Russia to assume his place as the leader of the family It’s the late nineteenth century and the creepy Falcon house is home only to long time resident Princess Olga and her odd assortment of terrified servants In addition to them Lev meets a mysterious young boy who appears only at odd times Even stranger when Lev sleeps in his dead grandfather’s study he begins to create creepy drawings almost as if possessed by a spirit while he draws those drawings are pictured in this book Will Lev figure out what is really happening in the study? Who is the mysterious boy? Will he make it out of Falcon House alive?

    I loved the note from the author at the beginning talking about where the papers came from I really did expect maybe a good ghost story or a creepy story of some kind It really was of just the feeling of a child telling a rather long dream The whole center of the book was just boring It took me weeks to get through such a short book and it shouldn't have The very end maybe the last or couple last chapters were good and they were interesting And then I especially liked the notes at the very end So maybe I should have just stuck with the notes the beginning in the notes at the end unless the rest of it to be I would not recommend the book to anybody sadly Especially to a child as it might bore then to not pick up a book
