    About "Cliff McNish"

    1. Cliff McNish

      I was born in Sunderland, a city in the north east of England.I don t recall too much about my first 8 years of life other than I loved being outdoors especially in the woods near our house I came home every night covered in scratches.My first real book memory is being given C.S Lewis s The Magician s Nephew by my English teacher, Mrs Baldwin I loved that, and all the other Narnia books.So how did I become an author As a parent I was used to making up short and funny stories for my daughter, Rachel When she was about ten, however, she wanted a story about a really, really nasty witch This time I put pen to paper and what started off as a tiny scrap of an idea got bigger and bigger and BIGGER It became The Doomspell.After I finished it, I continued my love affair with fantasy by creating The Silver Sequence which I still think is probably my best and definitely my most original work Following that, I tried to scare everyone half to death with a couple of ghost novels Breathe and The Hunting Ground.I could tell you about myself, but the truth is that perhaps the biggest gift we can give anyone is our imagination and everything important I have to offer you about that is in the novels.

    1. Original post at One More PageI may be one of the biggest scaredy cats in the world, or at least, among my group of friends I know this doesn t make sense when it comes to my love for all things zombie I like all the shambling, brain moaning creatures, but when it comes to ghosts and other supernatural stuff I cower under my covers When I was a kid I used to like scaring myself silly by watching those Halloween specials that all local TV shows air during those times and no fail, I always end up [...]


    2. Breathe by Cliff McNish is about a boy named Jack Jack s father just died His mom moves to an old house because Jack likes those types of houses But something strange is happening to him After his dad died, he would run his fingers over everything, sensing his dad When he first arrives, he sees four faces looking out a window in the house Those faces belong to Oliver, Ann, Charlie, and Gwyneth They are ghost Jack goes into his new room where a lady died He does not know this, but he senses it an [...]


    3. I really liked this book surprisingly I was faced with so many emotions at times Not your typical happy ending and quite a few pins and needles moments I had never heard of this story or the author until 2 of my friends told me how good it was I am so impressed with this story that I would likely read another of Cliff McNish s novels.Jack and Sarah have moved to an old farmhouse for a new beginning after Jack s father died Jack has chronic and deadly asthma and must keep in control of his breath [...]


    4. This ghost story, aimed at 11 14 year old readers, would probably not appeal to any children who have had real experience with death All horror and ghost stories delve into the frightening mysteries of what happens to us after we die, but this story explores that idea in a way that might properly disturb those of sensitive imagination Unlike many ghost stories I m thinking of the humorous Eva Ibbotson variety this story really touches on loss and mourning At the beginning of the novel, twelve ye [...]


    5. First of all, i ve never read anything like this Absolutely nothing horror related So it kind of freaked me out to read it on a page You know It s different when you read it, not see it Parts of the book, let me rephrase that, the whole book is really seductive I can t really put a pinger on it but when I was reading it all I could think about is that it sounded a lot like Jaycee Dugard Even though the children in the house weren t tortured in that way it seemed to sort of resemble that.I might [...]


    6. Fans of The Sixth Sense yep, it s about a boy who talks to dead people and general creepiness will like the concept, but the pieces did not make a satisfying whole for me Too much build up, too convenient a resolution, and the plot was thin in places Lone Star winner for 2008 09.


    7. I enjoyed reading this book to my students I do wish it had been a little shorter in length It was thrilling and at times a little creepy But if your are looking for a scary book that will give chills this is not the one.


    8. This is a very tense story that focuses on the thrill and suspense of ghost stories, not very bloody or gross like some horror stories I have read, which I appreciate but still reasonably scary It really opened my eyes to how dangerous illnesses can be, particularly asthma, and how lucky we are today to have the medicine we have The end was quite satisfactory with the code which I remembered from earlier in the book, that really nicely wrapped up the entire story It s a spine chilling tale that [...]


    9. I can best describe this kid s horror paranormal story by McNish as a cross between two of Neil Gaiman s most popular children s books Coraline and The Graveyard Book Basically this is the gist asthmatic boy Jack and her mom moves into a big old house where ghost children Gwyneth, Ann, Oliver, and Charlie are incarcerated Once they realize that Jack can see and talk to them, they start to ask for his help Supposedly they should be crossing to the other side now, but the devilish Ghost Mother imp [...]


    10. Breathe, by Cliff McNish is a thrilling and shivering novel about a young boy who has a sense for feeling ghosts This assiduous author, I can tell, really put thought into this novel because of the way it is written I never really thought of the things that were written into this book and never really thought of ghosts this way before That is the reason why I think this book was intensely amazing.Jack, the main character who has asthma, moves into a new, antiquated home after the recent death of [...]


    11. Also view at Bookmarks and Blogging3.5 starsI class myself as a horror fan Not a big one, mind you, but I do enjoy a scary story every now and again I like being left shaken and wondering if the things from the book are actually real and are coming to get me, even if it means I don t get to sleep for a week.Maybe it s because I mainly read Stephen King when I read horror, or maybe it s because I m not as much as a wimp as I first thought, but Breathe wasn t very scary Quite creepy, yes, but not [...]


    12. Ann, Oliver, Gwyneth, and Charlie are just like all the other kids They like to play, joke around, and just have fun There s only one thing that sets them apart from everyone else they re dead These ghost children have been trapped in the same house for years, unable to pass on to the Other Side because of the spirit energy sucking Ghost Mother, feeding off the children simply to stay in the living world Yet after a ghost s soul is deficient of energy, they are claimed by the Nightmare Passage, [...]


    13. The setting of breathe is at this old house in the country The conflict is that Jack has asthma and he has a lot of asthma attacks The ghost mother is inside of Sarah, Jack s mom, and won t get out She took Anne s soul and Anne is now in the nightmare passage She is about to run out of energy and she is going to kill Jack then keep his soul so she can have his soul energy This is very intense and Sarah the whole time she is killing Jack is fighting to get out and save Jack She finally takes over [...]


    14. I liked it I liked it a lot All but the endingBut I ll get into that later Now the rest of the story.It was very original Well okay some of it wasn t original Like the fact that the main charater is living in an old haunted house And the fact that the main charater can sense the dead ha, ha I can see dead people But the rest was original Like the fact that the Ghost Mother was going after Jack the main charater because she wanted to be a mother again And the fact that the Ghoat Mother feed off o [...]


    15. Breathe by Cliff McNish is a ghost story It is about this boy named Jack who moves in with his mom to a farmhouse that is haunted This book describes places that we don t really know about like the Other Side and the Nightmare Passage It s clear that the author has put a lot of thought into describing these two places when you read the book In the story Jack meets the Ghost Mother who has been in this house since her daughter died and she blames herself for what happened to her She wants to be a [...]



    16. This book takes place in an old farm house where a mother and her child with tuberculosis or consumption previousley lived.The mother has a problem she is stuck in the house, and can t go to the other side because she choose not to leave She steals ghost children s souls for her consumption to keep her soul alive and out of the nightmare passage, a place for all ghost souls who did not pass into the other side, all of the ghost children she consumes will eventually find themselves in the nightma [...]

    18. I got so caught up in reading this story that my daughter was an hour late to bedtime last night, I just had to finish it before sleep.Jack is a young teen with asthma who moves into an old English house with his mother after the recent death of his father Jack has always had a level of extrasensory perception being able to touch objects and learn something of their history But, his father s death seems to have amplified this ability and his mother feels he needs a change of environment to help [...]

    20. This was another novel I wasn t sure I d like and ended up really loving it There was a deep sense of darkness in this novel, and it was almost a whimsical ghost story, if that makes sense I was reminded of Coraline in this story, such as the ghost children and the evil mother but I really liked it.The writing was really well done and I liked the ease in which he transitioned into a new chapter or section The book did make me look around the room a few times I was pleasantly surprised at that fr [...]


    21. This book is a little disappointing, when compared to othr ghost stories Jack is a 12 year old boy, who has a really bad case of asthma He can also detect the dead, or in other words, see ghost When Jack and his mother, Sarah, move to an eerie old house after his father s death, the Ghost Mother appears and wishes him to be his pretend son But soon enough, Jack discovers the Ghost Children He learns that the Ghost Mother feeds on the dead children s spirits, to keep her from entering the Nightma [...]


    22. This book was the best book I ve ever read In fact, it was so good I read it 3 times It was a thrilling, horrifying, heart racer in which kept me stuck trapped in the book like the ghost children in the house It was a ride of EVERY EMOTION I was glad I have read this because at first I thought it would be a dull ,stereotypical ghost book After I read this book, I HAD TO BUY IT Trust me nobody would dislike this.


    23. Creepy but unconvincing ghost story about a severely asthmatic boy who can sense the dead Jack s widowed mother decides, for not very plausible reasons, to move with her son to an isolated old country house House turns out to be haunted no surprise there by the ravenous Ghost Mother and the trapped souls of her victims.I found the after death aspects of the story least satisfactory.


    24. Texas Lonestar for the 08 09 school year.I m not all into ghost stories all that much, so this book was just an okay read It was about a boy that had a special connection with the dead After moving into an old home with his mother, he soon learns that there are 5 ghosts that live in the house that are trapped and need his help.


    25. This story is about a boy with asthma who after his dad dying can feel traces of the dead in old furniture well it was only traces until he moves to a creepy old house yes very clique I know It was a good book however it was a bit like other ones with the whole breathing asthma thing but I did enjoy it and raced through it.


    26. Not my favorite book, but it was ok, I definitely not one for bedtime reading, I got freaked out I put it down, then picked it back up, and After you got passed the freakishness, it is really good, I tried to read it again a few weeks ago, but I got freaked out again so Put it down again.


    27. This book seems fairly unrecognized and it isn t the most popular but I sincerely enjoyed it and was interested by the insights it held, and also the authors takes on heaven, hell and the after life Worth it to read
