This truly magical book is about love, talking dogs, ghosts who happen to be gourmet cooks, picnicking in the rain with yourself at 20 different ages, and what happens to us when we become the masters of our own fate.

Interesting writing style, complex story
I enjoyed the author's writing style, but the plot relies upon many quickly presented details that I sometimes missed. The story demands rather intense concentration. Unfortunately, my player doesn't let you back up a few seconds for a brief replay. My main objection is that the male narrator's attempt at female voices was distracting right up to the end. I just couldn't get used to it.

A little earnest, but entertaining
This was my first time with a Jonathan Carroll book, and I have to say I enjoyed it. I'm curious about the Chinese idea of ghosts, as embodied by the character Ling. It was interesting to see the story develop through the characters' eyes.
I felt like the author was being a little too earnest in talking about life in relation to his characters, though. I don't always look for life lessons in my fiction.
The narrator was fine.
