Review

This is the second book I read by Eric Thomas. I thoroughly enjoyed his first book, but I have to admit that I liked this one better. The story is so chilling, so grueling, and it engaged my attention completely. I didn't want to put it down. The anxiety and depression felt by Greg are rooted deep in his past and cause him to shut the world out slowly, until he is an invisible man of his own making. The conflict of emotions he felt after witnessing the traumatizing accident that he feels he could have prevented if he was paying attention are absolutely real and compelling. It is perfectly understandable that he is seeing the ghost of the deceased man, if he is indeed seeing it. Is the ghost real? Or is this his manifestation of guilt over an accident he feels was his fault? Is his subconscious forcing him to face and resolve his long time problems with depression and thoughts of suicide? Or is this man who died as a result of his negligence really looming over him from beyond the grave ready to take his life? He feels like this ghost is going to do him a favor by killing him in seven days, until he starts to investigate the life of the dead truck driver and realizes that for the first time in a long time he wants to avoid death. This psychological thriller will have you questioning the truths of Greg's perceptions and second guessing your own belief in ghosts. The descriptions are intense and tangible, the plot twists totally enthralling.

Eric Thomas has real talent. He writes with an irresistible combination of creativity, humor and sensitivity. Everytime I had to pause and put this book down, I was eager to get back to it to see what would happen next. This is not your typical ghost story, which makes it unique and even more fun to read. You may not even like the main character at first, but keep reading, and you'll be rewarded in the end. Eric Thomas' writing style is sensational, his descriptions flawless. His characterizations reveal humans as they truly are, whether foolish, vain, self-centered, frail, lovable, dangerous, helpless, or just plain amazing creatures. His observations of human nature are right-on. You won't be wasting your money on this one. I recommend it heartily for entertainment value.

An engaging story of a man whose anxieties has led him to a solitary existence, that is, until a ghost demands him to take action or die.

Eric Thomas is a talented writer with a unique ability to create true to life characters. The unexpected twists had me turning the pages into the AM hours.

Mark Lee's Review

My emotions concerning this book are all over the board. There were times it read like a 5 star book that you just can't put down while other parts didn't hold my attention as well, sort of like a 3 star book would do. Overall, I enjoyed it, so the 4 star rating seems appropriate.

Some parts of the book could have used a little more polish, while other parts were pure awesomeness. There would be a scene that captured my imagination, the details vivid, but followed by a page or two of conversation or internal monologue that just didn't do it for me. However, to the author's credit, he always brought me back, each chapter (just about) ending on a cliffhanger and usually a good one that made me say "oh wow" out loud.

In addition to some of the conversations not capturing my attention, I didn't particularly like the format used. There would be an entire page of dialog with no other descriptions, of either the dialog or anything else. The technique is used for rapid conversation, but I personally find it slightly annoying. Half way through I'd lose track of who was talking, having to go back and retrace the conversation. Occasionally identifying the speaker would have helped, not to mention streamlining some of the banter.

One thing I think the author did extremely well was simile and metaphor, particularly simile. As mentioned already, not only would there be a scene that captured my attention, the details would be assisted by a well placed simile. For example, take the following quote.

"[...]her gaze drifted up to the ceiling as if there was weight attached to the back of her head."

Or, how about this one?

"Buried alive and I had just come to terms with the uselessness of beating on the coffin.

DRT (A Ghost Story)Eric Thomas
Thriller/suspense

Greg is an overnight traffic reporter. He is a loner and leads a boring life. Until that night he witnessed a fatal accident. He feels guilt and believes that the accident was his fault.

Soon he starts to see the ghost of the dead driver. He is being haunted by an angry dead man. At first he is not sure if it is real or a dream. He decides to join a group therapy session for people with anxieties. But all the members accept the leader of the group find him creepy and the story bizarre. He starts to question his own sanity.

He begins a quest to find out what the ghost wants of him, and why he was chosen to be the "haunted one". What he discovers is tragic and his life will never be the same as he continues on his quest to fulfill the ghosts wishes.

A fantastic read. I could not put it down. I was hooked from the first page until the last. I look forward to more work from Eric Thomas.

I also recommend his first book : Fall of the Citizens
