    So I didn't want to start this series until I had read the book. Which I read though Audiobooks. I thought the book sucked.

    Pretty quickly into Episode 1 on Netflix, I realized that this was not going to follow the book closely.

    Kind of slow to get going but interesting enough for me to keep watching.

    I liked it. Might watch it again just to compare notes with a GOAT.

    I liked the book and the show. I read the book after watching the show.

    The show has very little connection to the book other than the names of a few characters and the house itself. The show also pulls some key lines directly from the book, though often used in a different context.

    I'm through 5 episodes.

    The family overall are a bunch of douchebags and detached assholes. Poor Luke gets treated like dog shit.

    By far my favorite character despite the adult version having sub-par acting chops. The kid is putting him to shame, imo.

    Finished it. The last episode annoyed me more than anything and brought the overall rank of the show to a 7 out of 10.

    Out of nowhere and magically they all end up at the mansion and everyone gets a happy ending. Ghost stories with happy endings.

    What I did liked was the long dialogue scenes. They were engaging and sucked you right in. Good writing up until the end. They didn't land the finale.
