We read this book for our book club and I liked it but it wasn't really my style. I thought it was a bit predictable. But I did like that it was all about redemption and that there was a new fresh look at the whole concept of the afterlife. I really liked the relationship between Meg and Lowrie and I liked that the characters were very believable and well written. ( )

I gave it 2 stars because I feel that I've read and watched this plot several times. I wasn't funny in any way and it was really boring. Compared to Artemis Fowl this was not engaging enough. ( )

I remember whipping right through this. It was that good. I was hooked.

There's a good lesson at the end of this: Don't be an asshat. ( )
