The Ghost In Love

The Ghost In Love

by Jonathan Carroll

Judy Stanton (10/18/12): This book got rave reviews, but, frankly, I wouldn't have stuck with it if it wasn't a book club read. I get that it is supposed to be an allegory about people having freedom of choice, but the talking dogs, reading people's minds, ghosts and journeys into past lives was a little too far reaching for me. I could relate to the characters having many different sides to their personalities, to having fond life memories you wish could go on forever, and to the concept of really appreciating even the little things in life when you are faced with death. If you like quirky, offbeat books, this may be just right for you; it was just not my favorite.

Dale Israel: After reading Ava's review of this book, I immediately ran to the library to check this book out. Thanks Ava for reviewing this book--I had never heard of it before. The Ghost in Love was probably one of the most interesting books I've read in quite a long time. I loved it! I would give anything to chat with the author. His creativity amazed me...I don't know how he came up with all this stuff but I'm glad he did. I strongly encourage all readers who enjoy "offbeat" kinds of books to pick this one up. I'd love to hear what others have to say about it. I give this book five thumbs up!

Ava Shuster: Pat Conroy once said of Jonathan Carroll," A cult waiting to be born." I have enjoyed Carroll's novels for years. His newest book was fascinating for me. An unusual story line about people who are supposed to die, but don't, confused angels, talking dogs,culinary descriptions that would entice true foodies and his ever present theme of fate and love. I found myself thinking about the book during the day and anxious for free time so I could enter his funny, strange world.
