5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE GHOST STORIES!!, 13 Jan. 2014
This review is from: The Dark Between (Hardcover)
Okay, so I got a little excited with this book, but I just LOVE ghost stories! And good ones at that!

It is so rare that you find a proper ghost story that keeps you hooked all the way. The only other one I can think of right now is Maureen Johnson's Name of the Star (brilliant book, highly recommended, go buy it NOW!), but Sonia Gensler succeeded in writing a very successful ghost story - i.e. interesting and spooky all at the same time.

A good ghost story is one that has an interesting story line, a group of strange, unfit, very different characters that have been pushed together due to random unrelated (or are they?) circumstances, and a lot of history and facts that back up the world of Spiritualism. You have the believer, and you have the skeptic, but then...you have the gifted.

Kate, Elsie and Asher are three very different people who find themselves stuck in the Thompson's household due to different series of events that led them there. What starts out as a very awkward, and at times, antagonistic friendship blooms into a wonderful shared bond between the three.

It's been a while since I found myself invested in a story this way. On goodreads as I tracked my reading progress, I was so engrossed that I kept writing down how I felt and what I thought with every entry.

Gensler knew how to keep the readers guessing. I thought I had it all figured out, and I was sure I knew who was behind all the murders, only to be shocked by the revelation at the end. I also appreciated (in a I hate it yet love it kind of way) the open-ended ending of the book.

And the romantic in me is rooting for Kate and Asher (despite the age difference). I am definitely hoping there is a sequel, this story is far from over.
