This was actually less ghostly than one might think. Yes the dead people are ghosts in a sense as they are people who have died and came and are bonded to people that they have in their lifetime. Oh...this st o ryan isn't set on planet earth..but a distance plant called RR or something like that. Smart move by the author as it is much easier to wrap ur mind around the ghost r aliens thing.
The story literally becomes engaging right from the beginning...and remains that way till the end. The romance and character development was a nice bonus.
Well worth the credit...narration was great as well...

Ghost Planet is about a planet (Ardagh 1) that has recently been colonized by humans. Every human who comes to Ardagh 1 soon discovers that they have a ghost - a person who they knew, who had died, who must follow them everywhere. In order to cope with the resulting depression among the colonists, the colonists are instructed to follow Ghost Protocol, which involves refusing to interact with the ghosts in any way. Our protagonist, Elizabeth, shows up on the planet and meets with her new boss, Murphy. Much to her horror and surprise she quickly discovers that she is a ghost herself - she died when her transport crashed during landing - and she is now the ghost of Murphy, who will not acknowledge her.<br/><br/>Sharon has defiantly captured my attention with this New and very entertaining story. I really enjoyed this book and it held my full attention all the way to the end. For me, I would of liked a little more romance and i wasn't overly keen on the Narrator - but these things aside - it was an excellent listen. :)

The book started so well, what a brilliant new idea of 'ghosts' as aliens. What I hadn't realised was the all consuming, really naff love story between the charming 'Oirish' Murphy and Elizabeth. The sex scenes between them were awful and it happened so often I'm surprised the poor woman could walk! I felt they detracted from the story which could have been so much better.
In a nutshell, great idea but written in the style of Mills and Boon!
What disappointed you about Ghost Planet?
I thought I was getting scifi not 50 shades of grey. The most off putting thing was the moaning. Also the narrator's impression of the supposedly Irish male lead was horrible.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I almost missed the ending trying to fast forward the cringing and constant "sex" scenes.
Would you be willing to try another one of Dina Pearlman’s performances?
What character would you cut from Ghost Planet?
The moaning male lead.

If anyone knows of a similar idea in another book or series please let me know. The ideas were brilliant. Pity the author felt the excruciating sex scenes helped.
