    1. If you ignore the early 20th century racism, it s not a bad read I decided to give this one a shot, having never heard of it before, because I found it on Project Gutenberg s top 100 list at 7 popularity wise It started out with a sort of Gothic Horror vibe, which was great, but that dissipated not even halfway through The story turned into something else that was not quite as enjoyable to take in, perhaps because of the unfortunate casual racism that was a product of the time this novel was wr [...]


    2. Interesting mystery Despite knowing that all of this can t happen and isn t real, I wasn t able to leave the book until the end Quick read of course.


    3.

    5. Short and just interesting enough to keep me reading This has some slow moments and some of it was dragged out a bit than necessary but I still liked it overall There actually were some twists I wasnt completely expecting The appeal to me, as usual, was mainly that it was written in the early 1900 s I like simple stories with some interest a mystery but no extreme bad guy, for example , especially since I do most of my reading before falling asleep This one kept me up a little longer than usual [...]


    6. I read it because it was on the first page of the most downloaded books on Gutenberg, so I figured it had to be good.Now that I read it I suspect it is only ranked that high because people confuse it for one of the many other The Girl Next Door books.Very slow story, but entertaining enough to make it to the end.Some racist remarks, but not to the extent that it ruins the book completely view spoiler Only read if you can get past the characters going OMG, our friend might be half chinese, how ho [...]


    7. It was an easy breazy reading, very lightly written, i didn t feel like there was much of a mystery that everything was predictable by the middle of the book, the characters weren t deep, there were no plost in the story it was too simple, it felt of a children book i like the century it s written in though Well it didn t take much of my time to regret reading it.


    8. A.H Seaman seems to be the American Enid Blyton The plot involves nosy teenagers poking into the mysterious neighbours business A short, enjoyable read, although the blatant racism was a bit much,but I guess that s how rolled in that century.


    9. Enjoyable 19th century novella of the incredible coincidences type of mystery I liked it The various red herrings and ridiculous coincidences were fun light reading I will look for of Augusta Seaman s books.



    10. This book was a little boring because the exciting parts were few far between, but it was enjoyable enough for me to finish it.


    11. Nice light read for a lazy afternoon A story of two young women at the end of the 19th century that are curious about the mysterious house and its occupants next door.




    12. Good book The story is strong enough keep holding you.A story of two girls, started with curiosity turns into a mystery and through twists and turns ends well.
