It's interesting to look over these older reviews. It is clear that this work is not a rip-off of Casper the Friendly Ghost, to go by the detail in this excellent summary. Seems like an intriguing sociological work with a dash of the supernatural thrown in. Good work here, Tigania.

This is amazing indeed. The challenges that John was facing seem very tough. I wonder how he was able to cope up with them. I would love to read this.

Sometimes I feel like I'm reliving scenes from my life.Sometimes I'm watching a movie. Sometimes I'm in psychology class again. You have just encouraged my interest! Can't wait for the mail!
I read the teaser as well. I thought the book would be very sad from the bit I read. Evidently, that young boy grew up to learn to read and write and was able to articulate his horrid childhood. Unfortunately, I could not stand to read anymore. I've read, seen, and lived enough sad scenes.

Great review! I usually like stories involving ghosts, but I don't like stories with a lot of abuse in it.
