This book is very interesting and dreadful for me.
This ghost had agreeable side but at the end, he was just horrible ghost. ( )

This is very long story,but it was easy to read. I thought this story is funny one first,but the end was very horrible! DANGEROUS GAME sounds interesting,but I don't want to play this game.... And please be relieved even if you don't know the rule of chess.
The dangerous game is NOT chess. It is the battle with ghost! In nights,the poltergeist appears in the bedroom of William Harris. He became an uninteresting person after his wife's death. But his friend exists. His name is Louis. Every Wednesday,William and Louis play chess together. And William played another game in nights. Do you understand,don't you? Yes,the battle with ghost! ( )

The main character of this book played with ghost before he goes to bed every day. He named the ghost Poldy.
At first, they played only good games and enjoyed it but Poldy became to play bad games . He realized that Poldy was his dead wife. He killed her because he wanted to monopolize her forever.
Poldy wanted to do,too. So, at the end of this story he was monopolized by Poldy,too. ( )

One middle-aged man whose wife died several years ago is a main character.
He is a common person who likes a chess,but in the every night,something is happened to him.Suprisingly,he can play with a ghost!
But to tell the truth,he was dreaming and the ghost was imagination.
This is unusual,strange and funny occurrence in usually dialy.
If you become to be interested in this story,please try it.Irecommend it ( )

Every week William and Louis play a game of chess. Then one night William discovers a new friend - a playful ghost. Together they make up their own special game. But soon the game changes. It's no longer any fun - it's becoming dangerous, and William doesn't want to play it any more. But the ghost won't let him stop...A ghostly chiller not to be read alone!
