I really hate giving low reviews , but also rely heavily on other reviews for choosing books , so I appreciate it if someone is honest about a book.
So to be honest, I must admit I didn't finish this and really had no interest in doing so.
I was under the assumption that it'd have a lot more of a paranormal type slant to it. There was a small bit of that in it but nothing to write home ( or a book ) about.
The story was mind numbing , tedious and slow. The author goes on at length about the step by step guide to being a school janitor. I see nothing wrong with doing anything to earn an honest paycheck, so I'm not disrespecting that. I think he just detailed the most mundane things to the point of boredom.
The narrator was so-so. I sometimes don't like to judge a narrator if the material isn't interesting. No narrator on the planet can make certain books worth a listen.
Sorry for the low review but it's only fair to other buyers.
The summary made this sound like a creepy ghost story, but ghosts hardly appear in it at all!
This doesn't detract from the book as I found it really sweet and heartening. Joe saw the ghost of his grandpa when he was wee and copes with it fine, but his home life is awful as his mum is a violent drunk. Joe and his sister stick together as the father copes by staying away from home.
Gradually Joe grows up but has awful results with women and ends up being a single dad of two boys finding it really hard to support them. He tries another relationship but it goes south too, so Joe and his boys carry on as a team through thick and thin.
