Kate is bound do to fate to transport souls to the afterlife. Not by choice is she doing this. Mainly she is chosen by some poor choices where fate intervened.  The soulsouls she has to transport are a great bunch of characters. She is great at helping them cross over but hates what she does. I found this book very interesting. The description gives eno ugh away to make you want to read it. The story is written to make you laugh and think I definitely recommend  you read this story.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* This synopsis for this book was super intriguing. It sounded like a really unique book with a little bit of humor, paranormal, and suspense thrown in as well. I really liked the idea of someone being made to ferry souls to the other side to face their judgement. And the way that Karen is chosen is quite entertaining. The spirits that she is meant to help to the afterlife are a mixture of the down trodden, depressed, amiable, crazy, and kooky. The lengths that Karen goes to to help these poor souls is astounding. She is very good at her job. Too bad she doesn't want it. Amy Neftzger is a very adept author in this genre. This is the first of her books that I have read, but I have already bought others. I really like her writing style and the way she works the humorous and thought provoking stuff into her story. She is definitely able to hook a person in and keep their attention throughout the book. I read this book in one sitting and devoured every word. I found no faults with any of the characters nor any of the plot. All of the loose ends appeared to be tied nice and tidy and she even threw in a surprising little twist. I truly recommend this book for anyone who'd like to read a gripping page turner with a side of humor and a dash of whimsical. I give The Ferryman 5 books.
