wow. i saw a realitive reading it and i got curious. it can be a little disturbing, but that's what makes it all the more interesting. i would definitely recommend this to someone who doesn't mind the constant suspense. i found it gripping and read it in two days flat.

I completely loved this book, I even have a picture of the cover hanging in my closet. May Bird is a very relatable girl who falls into the world of ghosts. And let me say, there is a person or two who would like her dead (the living are not allowed there). Definitely fantasy. A fantastic read, but I would say it's more for girls.

I love May Bird. I know that this book is considered a young reader book, but I am 30 and I love this story. I would recommend this series to people of all ages. I really felt like I was with May Bird on her adventures.

Let this book take you on a fast-paced adventure, along with May and her friends. The first few pages of my reading was quite interesting. The text is so powerful, it grabs your attention. After every chapter, the plotline, gets more suspense and intense. As May seeks a way out of Ever After, a land of dead souls, she encounters wicked spirits, as she stumbles her way through. But, with the help of her ghostly comrades, May strengthens on along her journey to seek her way back home. This book is very engaging, it's definitely worth reading.

May Bird and the Ever After by Jodi Lynn Ander­son is a fic­tional book tar­geted at young adults and young at heart. This is the first of a series star­ring the young lady May Bird. May Bird is a skinny loner who aren’t too com­fort­able ins school, but very com­fort­able in the woods near her home of Briery Swamp with her cat / guardian, Somber Kitty. One day May Bird ven­tures fur­ther than she’s ever been and falls into the lake. As she crawls out she finds her­self in the after world with ghouls, ghosts and mon­sters. Only the Book of the Dead can get her back to her own uni­verse, but first she has to go through the evil Bo Cleevil. I had to read May Bird and the Ever After by Jodi Lynn Anderson! My daugh­ter (age 9) brought the book home, her teacher lent it to her. I read the first 2 pages and com­mented how much I liked it – hon­estly, I did like it as the first page or two reminded me of the writ­ing of Neil Gaiman. Next thing I know, my daugh­ter hap­pily brings me another copy of the book to read. So you see… I had to read this book! Not to men­tion that I make it a habit to read every book my kids read so we could talk about it and also to pay atten­tion to what they like, dis­like or inter­ested in. Regard­less of the tar­geted age group, I enjoyed much of the book. It’s an easy, fast read telling an imag­i­na­tive story. I enjoyed the dark humor and char­ac­ter­i­za­tion and even though I though the book might be a bit too dark and mor­bid, I still enjoyed the major­ity of the tale. Some­where around the mid­dle the book lost me, the parade of Bur­tonesque (yes, I made that up) parade of crazy, mor­bid char­ac­ter seemed end­less and the adven­tures move at a break­neck speed. How­ever, the story soon picked up again to a very cre­ative ending. While dark, I think the book will find fans amongst the tar­geted age group and above. Over­all, this was an enjoy­able book, a quick read and great fun.

Even with the mystical attention grabbing cover one can not even begin to imagine what adventure, mystery, and excitment lies within its pages. When i first picked up the book i thought this book looks intersting maybe ill like it, by the end of the first chapter i couldnt put it down. Maybird a girl from a small town with one of the most amazingly depressed bald cats finds herself in a different world where she meets some very unexspected friends and enimies.WARNING-once you start to read this book you'll be hooked to the May bird series : )

Amazing, Addicting, Astonishing!! Some parts are suspenseful, some things Pumpkin the ghost says is hysterical and my favorite book series on Earth!!

I love the charactors in this book. May Bird is so endearing and odd. I fell in love with her quirky and charming personality at once. This story is great fun with sneaky twists and turns. The dark humor and freaky friends in the book lead you down a path of disgust with a twinge of delight. I enjoyed every minute and am now a huge fan!

This book was really good. First, I really like the story and characters. I love May Bird, she is a great character. She is unsure of herself and I think that is a very important and good part of the book. It was very interesting and absorbing. I loved the whole thing about the after life and the ghosts things in the book. It was interesting. Overall, it was a really, really great book! I can't wait to get the next book in the series. I also recommend the: Percy and the Olympians series, (awesome books!!!) The Harry Potter series, and Warriors series. Also the book: Troll Blood. Thank you for reading my review, good-bye. = - )

I loved this book SO much even though it's a little wierd, great ghost story. May, Beatrice and Somber Kitty are my favorite characters. I got the first book 2 years ago and read it a year ago, I loved it!! I've read the first two books in the series, I recently got the last one but have not read it yet. Jodi Lynn Anderson is an AMAZING author!!! I can't wait for her to write more books like May Bird. Anyone who likes ghist stories, adventure, and action should read this boook!!

This is one of the best books in the world! It has a hanging ending that leaves bookworms everywhere waiting for the sequel(s)! This is a must-read for all fantasy lovers! It is exceptionally good for those who love ghost/horror stories, a good book at least.

OMG!!!! I can't believe how totally awsome this book is!! I own the first and second books, but when I started reading the first book, I was so scared that I swore that I would NEVER read it after dark! And then I just stopped reading it alltogether! But then I started reading it, again, and it was great!!!

This book was suspensful, plotful, and left you wanting more. I had no question as to how it became a New York Times Bestseller, because it was completely unlike any other book I have ever read, even though this was probably like the first Fantasy-related novel I've ever read. It was funny, sad, shocking, and dramatic. Well done, Miss Anderson, Well Done!!!

This book was the best that I have had the pleasure to read in a really long time. I look forward to read the next book in the series and have a high expectation that it will be more intriguing than the first.

This book is excellent. I don't usually find the sunshine state books that great, but this book really had me suprised. It is about a girl named May Ellen Bird and her Somber Kitty. May Ellen Bird has always thought the woods to be her home. One day she finds a map in a letter adressed to her. The map shows a lake in the very dry Briery Swap. May finds this amazing that there could actually be a lake while Briery Swamp is suffering a drought. So she goes to explore the lake. When she gets there, May is sucked into the lake and barely manages to escape. But afterwards when she returns home. Things aren't quite the same. May starts seeing things.....Ghosts.
