Clever & sexy!,
This review is from: A Certain Slant of Light (Paperback)
I bought this book because it was recomended to people that read & loved "Twilight" by Steph. Meyer. I loved it from the first page, for a first novel L.W. does an absolute splendid job. Her style of arranging words are amazing, elegant and very very clever!
The story tells of the remarkable relationship that springs between two ghosts (or Light). One who inhabits a boy's body (protecting it untill the boy's own soul returns) and one that has been haunting people for over 130 years. Against all odds they fall in love and Helen, who is still just a ghost decides to save a body as well, to be with James. When she does so, she not only get to taste apples for the first time in 130 years, but she also gets to taste the sweet & intoxicating juices of passion and love. James & Helen spend every possible moment together in their new bodies. But their host's lifes are not perfect, and they struggle to cope with everyday life. On top of this they are both trying to find out why God has not let them into heaven yet. What terrible crime did they do to deserve centuries on earth as Light?
It's a passionate story, filled with the true love of eras long gone, but with the snap of life in 2006. I recomend this book for older teens. It does have sexual contet (allthough all *very* tastefully written, and leaves most to imagination). People from age 16 and above (to 100yrs) will love this book. A great great read!!!!
