What disappointed you about Miramont's Ghost?
The story was thin, the writing was repetitive and expected. The climax was dull and I just didn't buy it.
What was most disappointing about Elizabeth Hall’s story?
The pace lagged and was predictable.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Durante?
I have no issue with the narrator - she can only read what was written.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Not really. The epilogue didn't save it.
Any additional comments?
I hate it that you sell these books at a less than credit price so I buy them for cash and then can't return them. You lose credibility when you promote books like these.

Would you listen to Miramont's Ghost again? Why?
I will probably revisit this novel in the future. Its unique in that it is a ghost's story. Not about the haunting itself but about the life before its after life.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
I was actually confused about this being a ghost story. This is the story of Adrienne's fictional life in the Miramont Castle in Colorado. She had a complex life of happy memories of a wonderful grandfather, loss, abusive relatives and her abilities as a clairvoyant and how her perceptions molded her life.
Which scene was your favorite?
The interactions of her with the grandfather.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was very sad for the abuse she had to endure. I wanted horrible things for the characters who were hurting her.
Any additional comments?
I recommend this for a listen. Narration was well done and the story plot did well also. I usually rely heavily of reviews left here and in this case I ignored the negative notes and took a chance. I was pleasantly surprised and you maybe too. Give it a try.

narration wasn't up to the standards I expect from audible enjoyed reading the book though
The author needs to do a lot more research. The correct form of address for people in France was completely wrong. The distances people went for minor jobs were impossible. You don't send someone 500 kilometres to send a telegram. Aa fairly good story but the ending was flat.
I was disgusted to see mention of the real family. Mud sticks and this family are now marked.
The narrator needed to learn the correct pronunciation of french words.
This tells of the life the spirit once had before death.
I brought it thinking it's an old-fashioned spooky ghost story, but got a beautiful yet sad wholesome story which pulls me in to listening up till 4am! I wonder if this can be made into a move, one that is longer than 1-2hours like how Asian movies are.
The narrator was excellent! I'm overly glad I got this audio.
