{Book Review} The Elvis Room by Stephen Graham Jones

This is one of my favorite ghost stories! It is crazy AF!

A young scientist unintentionally ruins his career by trying to convince a woman that her twin sister, whom she absorbed in the womb, was not haunting her. He gets shunned by the science community and ends up speaking at fringe science conferences.

After several years pass, he finds a strange pattern in hotels. One room is always kept empty by hotel staff in case a VIP arrived. The scientist calls this particular empty room the “Elvis Room,” and he discovers a disturbing trend. Someone in the hotel dies when all the rooms are full and the “Elvis Room” is booked.

The story is told from the scientist’s POV. As the story progresses, the scientist gets more obsessed. The reader has to determine if they believe the scientist’s unreliable account. That twist ending will get you! I didn’t see it coming!

This story is great! Stephen Graham Jones has brought something original to the table. This is my first time reading Stephen Graham Jones, but it won’t be my last.

I highly recommend this story to fans of horror!

5/5 stars!
