I thought it was a good book and the ending i thought was unexpected. I also thought it was not one of her best. I still recommend it though. I thought it was a pretty good story over all.

While The House on the Gulf is not a bad book, it is definitely not up to Haddix's usual standards. The characters are rather boring and the plot lacks the plethora of twists and turns usually found in Haddix's books. If you think the book's summary seems interesting you might like the book, but don't read it just because you like Haddix's other work.
