This was such an awesome book and was such a page turner that I stayed up until 6am to finish reading it. I had to know what happened at the end! I also read this book twice, which I don't usually do.

What I really liked: the colorful description of the haunted mansion, the history and mystery behind the story (was it real or not?), the PFLAG lady at the hospital was funny!, the clever plot twists, the adventures, how the ghosts and reincarnation are tied together, and the ending (not at all what

I love finding books the way I came across this one, the infamous needle in the haystack as we often refer to them. A reviewer had posted a review of my own book, and thanks to the joys of I was playing big brother and reading some of their other reviews. They had reviewed Chimneys: A Ghost Story by Christian Mollitor right before my book. I love a good ghost story so I clicked on it, read their review, read the synopsis, liked what I read and so I bought it.

I'll be honest; I was expecting a lot more from this book. Maybe that was my own mistake for getting excited to read a GLBTQ ghost story, but it is time to throw in the towel and admit it probably won’t get any better. (Note: this means I’ll only be covering my impression from the first few chapters)

The first thing that stood out was the lack of reaction from the characters. The story begins with the main character losing his grandmother and the height of his emotions is him wondering what will

The main character in this has the emotions of a wall. That could work if the author had made it work, but he just read as unfeeling and obtuse. I mean, he and his siblings walk out of their grandmother's funeral laughing. This is the woman he claims to love and who raised him since he was seven. He also gets distracted by junk in the basement while everyone is frantically searching for his brother who disappeared, with indications that a malevolent ghost kidnapped him. But, no, checking out som ...more
Enjoyed the book. The development of Jonah (the lead character) into a mature strong gay young man is enviable for all LGBT teens. I hope they all have a chance to become as comfortable in their own skin as Jonah did.

Overall I would say Chimneys: A Ghost Story is a fun enjoyable read that you won't want to put down until you are done. What more could you ask for; Ghosts, twists and turns, a little bit of gay romance, and a few things you may not expect. Think anyone of any age would enjoy this

Christian Mollitor grew up in a haunted house and spent most of his childhood scared out of his wits by flying orbs of light, voices in the dark, and books that never stayed on his bookshelf. After college, he moved to New Orleans where he began to develop a greater understanding of the ghouls who crossed his path. Now, he has mastered the ability to gain deep wisdom from those beyond the aether.
