An interesting take on how the mind works when clouded with guilt. It's difficult to say too much because I don't give spoilers, however, I will say that this book was well written, where Greg is both believable and realistic, showing what anyone can go through if faced with the same situation.

A good, worth reading ghost story.

I'll be honest and say i don't do Ghost Stories but I was hooked into Greg's story straight from the start and boy this book did not disappoint. I loved the twists & revaluations and couldn't put it down as i couldn't wait to find out how the book ended. An absolute must read for all book lovers.

A really good read. Quite spooky in parts. The story is a nice mix of ghost tale and mystery which is very well crafted and amusing in parts. I will be looking out for this author in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars DRT A GHOST STORY 2 Feb. 2013
By Lindy Lou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Eric Thomas has real talent. He writes with an irresistible combination of creativity, humor and sensitivity. Everytime I had to pause and put this book down, I was eager to get back to it to see what would happen next. This is not your typical ghost story, which makes it unique and even more fun to read. You may not even like the main character at first, but keep reading, and you'll be rewarded in the end. Eric Thomas' writing style is sensational, his descriptions flawless. His characterizations reveal humans as they truly are, whether foolish, vain, self-centered, frail, lovable, dangerous, helpless, or just plain amazing creatures. His observations of human nature are right-on. You won't be wasting your money on this one. I recommend it heartily for entertainment value.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read 16 May 2013
By Masquerade Crew - Published on Amazon.com

Mark Lee's Review

My emotions concerning this book are all over the board. There were times it read like a 5 star book that you just can't put down while other parts didn't hold my attention as well, sort of like a 3 star book would do. Overall, I enjoyed it, so the 4 star rating seems appropriate.

Some parts of the book could have used a little more polish, while other parts were pure awesomeness. There would be a scene that captured my imagination, the details vivid, but followed by a page or two of conversation or internal monologue that just didn't do it for me. However, to the author's credit, he always brought me back, each chapter (just about) ending on a cliffhanger and usually a good one that made me say "oh wow" out loud.

In addition to some of the conversations not capturing my attention, I didn't particularly like the format used. There would be an entire page of dialog with no other descriptions, of either the dialog or anything else. The technique is used for rapid conversation, but I personally find it slightly annoying. Half way through I'd lose track of who was talking, having to go back and retrace the conversation. Occasionally identifying the speaker would have helped, not to mention streamlining some of the banter.

One thing I think the author did extremely well was simile and metaphor, particularly simile. As mentioned already, not only would there be a scene that captured my attention, the details would be assisted by a well placed simile. For example, take the following quote.

"[...]her gaze drifted up to the ceiling as if there was weight attached to the back of her head."

Or, how about this one?

"Buried alive and I had just come to terms with the uselessness of beating on the coffin." (figurative, not really buried)

Those and many more like them made the story fun to read, because not only was the plot interesting, these additions made it come alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different - In a Good Way 2 May 2015
By Humming Bird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a short story, but one full of twists and turns that kept me reading. It was very different about a man who worked nights reporting traffic issues over the radio. Greg starts out as a shut in who only really leaves his house to go to work. During the day he is sleeping and trying to deal with his horrible anxiety.

The book really takes off when he fails to report an accident to someone who calls and asks if the roads are clear. Greg forgets that there is a stalled car on the highway, and the semi slams into it, killing the driver. The driver comes back to haunt Greg, stating he has 7 days to solve his unfinished business or he will die. At first I thought about the movie, The Ring, and how it is a somewhat similar premise. But it is mentioned in the book! Sylvia, his therapist compares his issue to the movie.

There are several twists that caught me off guard. There are some spoilers, so don't read ahead if you don't want to know ----

Sylvia's real job was unexpected. The fact that she turns out to be a massage therapist instead really made the story come full circle. Also, Draven! I was shocked to learn his "role" in the story since he started out to be likable. I guess that's how most psychopaths are described though.

I like the way this story ended. I'm glad that Greg got over his anxiety, came out of his shell, and his life got much better. Him and Sylvia staying together is great, and though most of the book is dark and spooky, at least it ended with him making good of his life and helping stop child prostitution. Great book - I recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars DRT - Entertaining Story 22 Feb. 2013
By Deb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An engaging story of a man whose anxieties has led him to a solitary existence, that is, until a ghost demands him to take action or die.

Eric Thomas is a talented writer with a unique ability to create true to life characters. The unexpected twists had me turning the pages into the AM hours.
4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly original 20 May 2013
By Bear with a sore head - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
DRT is an intriguing and original take at creating a supernatural drama and therein lies its strength and its weakness.

The strength is its originality. Unlike most (yawn, yawn) ghost stories involving haunted houses (are there any other kind) or graveyard, here we have two strangers caught up in an horrific tragedy within a tragedy. Not only that, our 'hero' is an unusual kind of guy and Eric Thomas clearly relished discussing his many foibles and weaknesses.

The weakness is in the cross-over genre. Switching from drama to ghost story to crime and back again creates a challenge which even an experienced author would struggle with. This meant that the resident bad guy and his crime (trying hard not to spoil things here) were left relatively undeveloped - and that was a great pity. I really wanted to despise this person and yet I had little time to develop much more than a mild disliking.

My other snag was about the ghost himself. I felt the gore element would have been better understated rather than overstated as it was. The main point of the message was 'urgency' - galvanising our hero into finding some pluck from among his stockpile of self-pity/loathing. I think the book would have been stronger for sticking to this thread rather than needlessly vying with itself to create ever more shocking images of a decaying body.

Don't get me wrong, DRT is definitely well-written and competent. It's also a refreshing change from many of its peers.
