I have to say that in spite of my bias against the paranormal in my fiction choices, I loved this book! Its unusual and groundbreaking premise is of immense appeal, and the novel is full of all the complex characters and situations of the music and entertainment world, as well as the logistical dilemmas of being inhabited by the spirit of a dead genius, and the sudden management nightmares of instant fame. The only downside (in my book) is the narrator, who makes the voice of Franz Schubert sound like a cranky old curmudgeon instead of a sensitive twenty-something musical phenom. She also somehow manages to give the talk show segments the quality of a badly acted puppet show ("Jill...Gordy...Jill...Gordy..." blah blah blah). And to top it off, she mispronounces Debussy and Pouilly Fuiss?! Ack! My ears! However, this did not dampen my enjoyment of this book and I heartily recommend it. Brava!

This book started out well, but then quickly fell apart. I did't care much for the reader, voice was weak and unconvincing.
This book kept me listening into the wee small hours... It is so convincing that you end up sharing everything with Lisa... and being haunted by Schubert yourself... right to the end.
Do not miss this one!!!
