Summary: Peter. Lola. Blossom. Abigail. Oliver. Five sixteen-year-old orphans. One by one, they are brought to a place that is unlike anything any of them has ever known. It's not a prison, not a hospital. It has no walls, no ceiling, no floor. Nothing but endless flights of stairs leading nowhere - except back to the red machine. The five will learn to love the machine, will let it rule their lives. But will they let it kill their souls?

At first, I thought House of Stairs would be just another boring sci-fi book, but I was wrong. It was a complex story of cruelty and hope when the going gets rough. Well done William Slater!

I have to say that I was a little skeptical about reading this book. I don't normally read books like this but after reading it, I would recommend it to any one! It was wonderful and you just don't want to stop reading it.
