My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review of One Ghost Per Serving
Reviewed via NetGalley
I’m not quite sure how to categorise this novel-although I give it 5 stars because it is thoroughly enjoyable, memorable, quite thought-provoking, and I’m happy to have read it-so I’ll call it “comedic psychological paranormal.” Following the foibles of poor Eric, and his misguided fellow characters, kept me chuckling all the way through, even though I don’t usually enjoy comic relief. The author did a wonderful job of delving into the psychologies-and the psyches-of her various characters, many of whom are quite neurotic and could probably benefit from a strong dose of extended therapy (who, after all, buys every instance of a particular branded yogurt product in order to win an unwinnable contest to please his scientific twelve-year-old daughter? Or lives in an RV because his HVAC instructor wife doesn’t want him around any more? Not to mention the Shopaholic, wealthy, owner of the firm promoting this yogurt.—well, you get the idea).
At heart, the story is about a man who lost almost everything when he was possessed by a ghost in law school—and over thirteen years later, is still trying to make sense of his life, still dogged by the same ghost, and now is introduced to: (wait for it), a Support Group for Ghosts!
Grab this novel, laugh along, cry for Eric-and just enjoy yourself immensely, as did I.
