I Also Recommend:
A ghost story with a twist that only Matheson could deliver. Similar to his other books, the story is slow to get going, but has great character development. The couple visiting their honeymoon location in an effort to rekindle their stressed marriage was not the most interesting start to a book. The husband's affair and the wife's lack of emotion are nothing spectacular either. However, when the reasons for the affair and lack of emotion start to bubble up, it becomes quite interesting, not to mention the ghost the husband comes across. There is a lot of erotica in the book, which I wasn't expecting, but not over done to the point the story is lost or it becomes stale to read. The ending is a little to story book and drawn out. I could have done without the last page regarding the ghost's resolution, it was a little too something for my tastes. I really enjoyed the writing style and characters, yet it is not one of the author's best books. Short book and a quick read, not a keeper though.Was this review helpful?

It could have been better
I L.O.v.E Richard Matheson books. I think he is a very great author, he also writes very well. He writes with very precise detail and excellent wording. But this book, I was disappointed. He could have told a little more about the ghost background or history. But he didn't. He wrote just enough. I didn't like how the book ended. The beginning was great but slow to come to excitement. I L.O.V.E the action that was in the book. I also enjoy sexuality that went on as well.It could have been and should have been a little more detail brought to that particular stages of the book. It was not scary, it did not have me begging for more. It was just plan simple straight to the point.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
