Friday Reads: The Death House (and a competition!)

IMG_20141120_174815If you follow us on social media then you might have started to see a lot of tweets to @Gollancz about one of the most exciting books of 2015, The Death House by Sarah Pinborough. The Death House is one of those books that we just can’t stop talking about in house and now we want to share this book with you!

So, what is The Death House about?

Toby’s life was perfectly normal . . . until it was unravelled by something as simple as a blood test.

Taken from his family, Toby now lives in the Death House; an out-of-time existence far from the modern world, where he, and the others who live there, are studied by Matron and her team of nurses. They’re looking for any sign of sickness. Any sign of their wards changing. Any sign that it’s time to take them to the sanatorium.

No one returns from the sanatorium.

Withdrawn from his house-mates and living in his memories of the past, Toby spends his days fighting his fear. But then a new arrival in the house shatters the fragile peace, and everything changes.

 Because everybody dies. It’s how you choose to live that counts.

Haunting. Moving. Impossible to forget. This is a book that will change the way you look at the world.
