Is it time to discuss yet?
I'm confused, why is Anna gone? Is she OK?
Well, I really really enjoyed the book. Call me crazy but I found the language beautiful and captivating. I found myself wanting to use her phrases in my own writing!
I didn't need a neat clean plot with a convenient ending to draw me in. I saw it as a look into the lives of a family facing tragedy - how it affects each individual differently - and I found it at times frustrating or disappointing (how people acted and how Harvey got away) but realistic. Honestly, who is to say how anyone would react in a similar situation.
I had mixed feelings about the whole "Ghost" scene. I think it was nice for everyone involved. It gave the main character some closure in a way and ability to move on. That was nice for her.
I didn't feel it was a copy of "Ghost" at the time because honestly, I don't think "Ghost" could possibly be the first time anyone ever thought of this.
Anyway, I thought it was a unique way to tell a bittersweet story and it inspired me to write myself. What more could I ask for?
On the other hand, for another point of view, talk to my husband who thought it was horribly written, pointless, and way too long.
