I enjoyed Nina Post's first book (The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse) so much, I decided to read everything else she's written. I was pleased to find her second book did not disappoint. As with her last book, Post's humor is the main attraction, and One Ghost Per Serving kept me entertained the whole way. In addition to an absurd and amusing story (in order to win his family back, Eric Snackerge attempts to win a contest sponsored by a yogurt company while a pair of shadowy figures within th ...more

Earlier this year I read Nina Post's debut novel The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse . It was a fun, diverting read, with some issues. So I was excited to see how Post had progressed as a writer with her second novel One Ghost Per Serving. The short verdict? A lot. The issues I had with her debut were gone from her sophomore effort. What remains is a highly entertaining story of a man, a ghost and a hunt for justice. In contrast to The Last Condo Board..., One Ghost Per Serving definitely do ...more

Eric Snackerge is a handsome and sexy man who has lost 18 months of his life being possessed by a spirit. As a consequence of which, his life has fallen apart: he was about to become a successful lawyer, but now he lives in a bus; he works as a semi-naked waiter in a ladies' bar; his wife wants to divorce him and move far away with their daughter.
Things couldn't be more depressing, but can surely be more complicated!
The spirit who used to possess him, Rex, wants him to be his human sponsor at a

In One Ghost Per Serving, we meet Eric, a down-on-his-luck, blacklisted, almost lawyer; his wife Willa and his brainy daughter Taffy; and his attached-at-the-hip ghost Rex. Eric was on his way to a bright career as a lawyer until he drank a sample of a POUNCE! and with it consumed the spirit of Rex. Rex took over Eric's body for the next sixteen months, leaving Eric panicked and confused. This book picks up years later, Eric has been fired from the law firm where he was interning and his family ...more

So it took me quite a while to start this one. I remember getting an email asking me to kindly do a review for this novel and I said I would do it in a week... Yep. Miserably failed. But, once I broke the spine and began my reading adventure, I enjoyed every second of it.

I discovered Nina Post's work with The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse. Her humor and her prose made all the difference. What you read is fresh, young, full of play on words and cultural references. I must say this story mad

Reviewed via NetGalley
5 Stars

I’m not quite sure how to categorise this novel-although I give it 5 stars because it is thoroughly enjoyable, memorable, quite thought-provoking, and I’m happy to have read it-so I’ll call it “comedic psychological paranormal.” Following the foibles of poor Eric, and his misguided fellow characters, kept me chuckling all the way through, even though I don’t usually enjoy comic relief. The author did a wonderful job of delving into the

This book was a break from the norm for me. I usually don't read supernatural genre with the exception of a few adult and YA titles. The ones I do read lean toward vampire and witch rather than ghosts.

This book was like a Goosebumps for grownups. Quirky characters and odd spirits abound in this simple to read story. The author infused a light humor and I really liked how the author referred to minor character's by nicknames based on looks. We totally do this at my house!

Simple, light and unconv

A fun, quick read. Brit humor, with quirky characters and an unusual plot. The main character, Eric, is the ultra paranoid conspiracy theorist since his life was ruined when he was possessed by a spirit, Rex; the main principal being that his fears are grounded in the book's reality.

I received a free review copy of this book from NetGalley. There were a few discrepancies in the plot chronology and a couple typos in the copy; these errors may be fixed in the final edition.
