summary Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Elisabeth Thomas

A story about a dangerously curious young undergraduate whose rebelliousness leads her to discover a shocking secret involving an exclusive circle of students and the dark truth beneath her school’s promise of prestige You are in the house and the house is in the woodsYou are in the house and the house is in you Catherine House is a school of higher learning like no other Hidden deep in the woods of rural Pennsylvania this crucible of reformist liberal arts study with its experimental curriculum wildly selective admissions policy and formidable endowment has produced some of the world’s best minds prize winning authors artists inventors Supreme Court justices presidents For those lucky few select. This definitely won't be a book for everyone but I have to say that I really enjoyed the weird uirky attributes this story had to offer Please do not confuse the author's brevity of content for writing that isn't fully expanded upon; each scene is a slow dread inducing dance that marries mystery with sensuality The revelations might not be shocking to the seasoned suspense reader but I felt the overall draw is in the luscious setting and character interactions that gave me a foggy sense of the space between waking and dreaming If you enjoy books that leave you wondering what you just read you can't miss Catherine House Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy

The cup is in my handsMy hands are in the houseThe house is in the woodsThe woods are in my handsYou know that saying If it sounds too good to be true it probably is Yes of course you do We all do So why is it that characters in books and movies act as though they've never have heard this phrase Instead they go all into things that are blatantly screamingly shockingly too good to be trueThis is the case with Ines the edgy and provocative protagonist of Catherine House On the run and all alone she is thrilled to have secured a vaunted place in the prestigious school Once accepted students receive✓Free tuition✓Free room and board✓Free meals✓Free clothing and toiletriesCatherine House alumni go on to fill powerful positions It is all but a given that upon graduation one will shoot to the top of their chosen profession  Three years of the best education one could hope for in an institution selective than any Ivy League school And all for freeAn all expenses paid  trip to fortune and fameToo good to be true Yeh I absolutely loved this novel It's uiet and introspective dark and mysterious Elisabeth Thomas slowly builds the suspense drawing the reader ever deeper into Ines' life and the secrets of Catherine House In a way it's predictable but I didn't mind that I love the way the author writes I adored Ines I couldn't help but want the best for her I enjoyed her interactions with the other characters I loved exploring Catherine House with her watching as she discovered its sinister foundation I was intrigued by the eerie cult like workings of the schoolIf you enjoy introspective books that are character driven I highly recommend Catherine House It will be too slow moving for some readers but those who enjoy a meandering buildup and complicated well developed characters in a dark gothic setting will find much to enjoy in this book

Catherine Housethe place you finally belongthe place you want to staythe place you want to leavethe place you lovethe place you hate Holy mixed reviews on this one I truly enjoyed this slow burn This book is not a cookie cutter book it is a completely uniue story You have to have an open mind and you have to pay attention and dig deep Suspend some belief it gave me a bit of a Ninth House vibe With that being said it will not be for everyone but it sure was a good fit for me I am debating between 4 and 45 stars on this oneSO here is the dealCatherine House very competitive prestigious school with a secretive past What actually goes on behind these walls The deal you make with the devil oh I mean Catherine House is all tuition is paid You live completely free of all costs while attending school Food clothing books and all the alcohol you can want are paid for In exchange you walk away from your old life No contact with the outside world for three long years This is so you can focus on your studies or so they sayEveryone entering the halls of Catherine House have been carefully selected and they all have a past They have had trouble fitting in with society Yet at Catherine House you are the perfect fit Too bad you can't stay foreveror can you One way or another you may never leaveMuch of the first part of the book is built around the development of the characters especially Ines and Theo You get a good feel for their daily life at school and how things roll at Catherine House It was of a drama at the beginning with an underlying feeling that something just isn't right at this school As the story builds you learn there are some weird things going on that only certain people are privy too About 100 pages out it really picked up and things started to make sense Usually I like a clear cut ending but I was totally satisfied with how it ended The author provided just enough insight that I was able to come to my own conclusionsI always love reading the work of a debut writer and I thought the writer was superb and she left me wondering what she will come up with next As I stated this will not appeal to everyone but I loved it Just keep an open mind and let the author paint the picture of what life at Catherine House is like Huge shoutout to Custom HouseWilliam Morrow for this gorgeous physical copy in exchange for an honest review
