it was ok
bookshelves: ghost, mystery
Read in June, 2007 , read count: 2

First, this book, though widely touted as a HORROR novel, is not horror. I would definitely think some supernatural work is here, but not horror. I wonder if it is the time period in which the book was written...before sci-fi/fantasy and supernatural thrillers were the norm, so, Horror was the closest genre to what it was.

Second, it DRAGS. It repeats itself over and over. It could have been much shorter.

Third, the trial is worth reading, but you don't get that until the last 100 pages of the book. Everything before is the set up...an awful long set-up if you ask me.

Ok, so overall I didn't HATE the book, but, um, not really all that fun to read either. It is a supernatural crime drama -- or court drama. And the ending was, um, while not predictable, not really a surprise either. Audrey Rose needed to pass on -- she came back too soon, and so, Ivy must die. Sad, but -- even Ivy's mom came to understand.

(completely a side note...this is the 1000 book I have added to Goodreads :-)
