Imagine you could see the dead all around you, every day, right there in front of you. What would you do? 8 year old Cole Sear is no ordinary boy, one with secrets and fears. Who didn’t want to share them with anybody because of what they would say. This is more than any human let alone an 8 year old boy can handle not sharing these visits with anyone but to keep them to himself and pray for it all to go away. The thing is Cole can’t control it.

It was a good story
I am a big Sixth Sense fan so I am totally biased. Worth the time it took to read. I got more out of the movie after I read it. Added some texture to some of the scenes.

Great story with tons of description. The mood is set in a somber, dark tone with little dialogue and lots of descriptive language. M. Night Shyamalan creates a gripping and refreshing story. The characters are given reality and substance. I enjoyed the tone and ambiguity of this story.
