I've gone middle of the road, and given this a safe 3 stars, as I'm not sure whether Kramer is a comic genius or has keyboard tourettes.
I perservered through the first few pages, despite being intensely put-off by the ridiculous amount of swearing in the first few pages. Kramer's plot is original and I enjoyed her quirky writing style, but I feel the book was let down by the rapidity with which the story played out - this could have easily been a novel - and the haphazard jumping from character to character. Pulp Fiction this ain't, but for the sake of 77p it's a cracking little read and a reasonable filler for the commute.
I note this is available in kids' sections and the cover might be misleading - DO NOT BUY THIS FOR YOUR CHILD. It contains swearing by the bucketload and lots of crude references as well as little bits of violence.
Will certainly look for more by this author for "time fillers"
I did enjoy this book and particularly liked the creative ways Linda tormented Mike. This book is a perfect read for a long(ish) bus journey. It has a clever plot and keeps you interested throughout. However it would have been good if a few more things had been expanded upon, such as how Linda was actually murdered. A bit more characterisation would have been good as well, for example I don't think there any descriptions about the characters appearance and if there are they are very fleeting.
Overall I enjoyed this book but I think (as some other people have said) that it may have been better if it had been expanded upon more and turned into a full book rather than a short story. However despite this, once I finished the book I immediately went on Amazon to see if the second book (Technically) Dead, is free to download on Kindle, unfortunately it's not, and while I'm not prepared to pay for it I would happily download it if/when I can get it for free.
I've been on a humour fix lately and have read some tragic attempts at humour/literature (they will not be named and should never be spoken of) and some really good ones, such as the fictional biography Bob Servant: Hero of Dundee and the memoir The Line, the Itch and the Rabbit Hole, this is neither. It's an average, quick and somewhat entertaining read.
The style is unusual, but I like it. It could have been better, certainly longer, but as an original spin on a short story it is alright.
As a free download it is worth a read and is worthy of 5 stars. I won't hesitate to download the rest of the series when they are also available for free.
I do not know why, but I honestly thought this book was about zombies (obviously I did not read the synopsis very closely before I downloaded it), I even stored it on my kindle in the 'zombies' folder. When I realised it was about a ghost haunting the ex-boyfriend who killed her I have to admit I was a little disappointed as I really wanted to read another zombie short story. However, if you are looking for a fun ghost short story, you could do a lot worse than this one.
It's a light hearted read; full of humour, sexual references and bad language. Many that have been through a broken relationship will relate to some of the issues involved. The text jumps about a bit, so you have to read carefully, to make sure that you keep up to speed with the plot.
Definitely not one for the children!
