This was a pretty good for such a short book. I usually have trouble connecting with characters in short stories, but the characters here were reasonably well developed. This fact is pretty amazing since the author developed them in such a sketchy way. Isis is a spooky read, a bit depressing and dark. One of the suprising things about the book was the hopeful way of thinking about death and the afterlife. (If the dead person gets to stay there!)

I think this would have been a 4 star book for me except I didn't like the ending, which was very open ended and unsatisfying. It bugs me when such a good job is done developing a story and then the author seems to rush the ending. I also think my sense of justice is offended when characters like Spence, Edyth, and Iris go on their merry way while poor Harvey....well, I guess you'll have to read the book to find out!
