    One thought on “The Pram”

    1. The Pram recounts the frightening experience of Carrie M. as she is terrorised by the ghost of her worst mistake. Told largely in the first person, The Pram drops the reader into the mind of the main character. While not a huge fan of first person narratives, it is pretty effective in this particular case.

    2. I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.This is an intriguing horror story that gripped me from the first page and kept me hooked!Carrie MacIntyre is an intriguing character.

    4. I received this book from the Author in exchange for a review, and I am pleased to say I was enthralled from the moment I picked it up. The blurb got my attention straight away and the story didn't let me down, it as many twists and turns that keeps you guessing the outcome Betty did a great job at keeping me hooked on the story as Carrie's dilemma unfolded. It was a new take on a ghost story. the characters where engaging and believable, and I loved the inner workings of Carrie's mind, her daug [...]

    5. This was a very odd story, strange and unusual.I loved it at first then got bored as it seemed to ramble on a bit in the middle and then I got into it again.Glad I read it, on the whole it was enjoyable!
