Primarily narrative with one puzzle. Low difficulty.
The Weeping Book
When we read between the lines we often find many hidden meanings. This sojourn into madness evolves with a boy’s seemingly innocent entry to a diary, and the terrible secrets that begin to fill its sheets.
Can one young teenager hold a more horrific secret than most? Flip through the pages of his journal and scour the materials that accompany it. There is a dark truth to be found. Be careful, though, for without the necessary precautions, an evil may also consume you.
As a young boy embarks on a new phase in his life, he begins to chronicle his experiences in his journal. While exploring a city steeped in history and legend, he stumbles upon a peculiar but enticing metallic amulet and keeps it. Shortly thereafter, terrifying blackouts and violent behaviour begin to engulf him.
Is he losing his mind or has something far more ominous taken hold of him?
The clues are concealed within the lines of his journal and the apparently unrelated documents contained within: a photograph, a missing poster, a postcard from an unknown place, and of course, the strange amulet that started it all.
The Weeping Book is a story of possession, darkness, and murder. It is not suitable for young audiences or those with a sensitive constitution.

I got this for my husband years ago when Mystery was first starting up I think. In any case, My husband is NOT prone to conspiracy, he is very science based. So when this arrived and I put on my act I even had his friends act as well. One of his friends is a metal smither so he checked the metal and help "date it" then I was able to get his mom involved as she works at the university and "took the amulet for real lab testing" of course the results were fabricated. everyone helped make this tale become real. we even had a friend who speaks to angels have a little seance at our place to communicate with the journal writer. Everyone played their parts perfectly! Then on his actual birthday everyone was at the house and I revealed what we had done. This was phenomenal. The company also ensured we had a letter to corroborate our gift. Now that he knows the company exists I will not be able to pull a fast on on him again... my son turns 16 in a few years though.... Guess what he is getting for his birthday ;) I can't wait to see what packages are available then so we can have another fun experience. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Mysterious Package Company! Try it! You'll LOVE IT!
The Weeping Book is incredibly well-put together. When I first ordered it, I was a little worried that the journal, writing would be hard to read, as I am not skilled at deciphering handwriting. If you share my trepidation, worry not, for when the book arrived, I discovered the writing very easy to read. The only hitch was when I got to the writing by a...different person whom I won't name for spoiler reasons. The rest of the package, including the book itself, was very well made. Every piece is authentic, and the story will haunt you as you follow in the troubled footsteps of Justin Gray. My advice--don't ever put the amulet on! 5 out of 5 stars!
I gifted my sister the Weeping Book as she specifically asked for experience gifts for a milestone birthday. She is the one that is Halloween all year round and has seen quite a bit of creepy movies and stories. I am the type that cannot keep a secret so I am so very proud of myself that I did not let on that she would be receiving this gift in the mail. To say she was surprised would be an understatement. The realistic nature of the delivery coupled with the lack of prior knowledge of it led to quite a strong reaction as it creeped her the F**k out (pretty much how she said it). I couldn’t have asked for a better reaction, though I did have to give its origin away so that she wouldn’t actually go and burn the crate and it’s contents. Eventually, several days later, she was finally ready to immerse herself in the experience.
My one ‘con’ I guess for those that receive something like this as a completely unexpected gift, is that she didn’t realize there is an actual puzzle to solve, that there was something more to look for beyond the obvious. I had to kind of push her in that direction. I’m not sure how to give a recipient this information without giving too much away, but it’s my one issue. Otherwise, the package and its contents were top notch and very creepily realistic.
We love your sister's reaction! So glad this was a hit.
Thanks very much for your review.
It took me way longer than it should have to figure out this puzzle but it was a ton of fun! The quality of the items absolutely blew me away...the diary was extremely well done and looked very authentic, even down to the smallest detail. The amulet was creepy and confusing and just perfect. Don’t miss out on the very last piece of the puzzle...it’s hidden in one of the objects stuffed in the diary!
