Publisher's Summary

As a stay-at-home programmer living with her loving boyfriend, Mia lives a simple but good life. Like most people, she dreams, but unlike most, she has vivid dreams about her neighbors' lives. One day, she realizes that they aren't dreams - what she's been experiencing is real. Mia's able to "ghost" into anyone she chooses, take control of their body, and make them do what she wants.
Frustrated by the injustice and abuse she sees around her, Mia begins using her power to try to right the wrongs she sees. Her boyfriend, Amir, does his best to stop her, believing that no one person should have that much power, and that the system - or God - will bring justice to the perpetrators. Mia, on the other hand, has seen too much corruption in her life to believe in such naïveté.
However, the best intentions don't always work out as planned. The power begins to affect Mia in ways she didn't expect - and turns out to have consequences she never imagined.

Original Concept

Any additional comments?

Mia has been having very vivid dreams about her neighbors. She's surprised to discover that they aren't dreams at all - she is actually inhabiting their bodies! This knowledge begins to change her and she takes extreme actions against those that she believes need to be punished. Her boyfriend Amir is shocked by the things that she's done but still loves her. He wants to find a more constructive outlet for her powers. But will this newfound power have repercussions for them both?

Ghosting had a very original concept and it made for an interesting story. Amir was probably the more likable of the two main characters, as he seemed to be more thoughtful and reasonable. I found it very entertaining except for the distraction of the bells or chimes at the beginning and end of chapters. The narrator was engaging and did a nice job with the character voices. I would have rated this a 5 but the sound effects were a little annoying. Overall this was an enjoyable listen and I would recommend Ghosting.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.

A short but interesting book

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was an interesting, if short, story. I was a little disappointed in the protagonist's use of her powers. I thought there could have been more to it, but that's just personal opinion. I would have also like to learn more about the mysterious "agents" but can understand why there wasn't more, given how short the story is.

All in all, it was enjoyable. The narrator was decent. She attempted different voices for each character, which is good, but I really disliked the wind chimes between chapters.
