The Caller, by Dan Krzyzkowski is an amazing, psychological thriller concerning Leslie Calloway, an 800 operator for a latchkey children's service. When she receives a call from Justin, a seven year older left home alone, she's pressed into a predicament that could turn into a matter of life and death. Justin says, "I think there's a man in my house."
The Caller is an awesome story. There's tension, fear for a child and a lot of mental issues going on. But man if it wasn't just way too long! To me, this should have been a short story, but I can't truly complain. The story was good. I mean, real good! I also can understand how he wanted to get Leslie's story out there. The Caller isn't just about who she's trying to help, but who she actually is. And Krzyzkowski pulled it off.
The story reminded me of a movie I saw when I was a tween, where the babysitter was haunted by a guy in the house. It spooked the heck outta me, since I was a sitter for years because the guy kept calling the sitter and asking, "Have you checked on the children?" Something like that anyway, but yeah, the guy was in the house, calling her on the house phone. It was a serious mind-freak of a movie! This book reminded me so much of it- but it's totally not like that, so don't think I'm offering up SPOILERS or anything.
If you like to feel haunted, in a realistic sort of way, this book is one you should grab and read. Alone. With all the lights out. Only hearing your heartbeat and the quiet.
