The characters and the dialogue are definitely the strongest elements to the story. Poppy is super fun and Dante is a dweeb. I adore them both.
Detail was decent. There were moments when I needed to know something more, but it wasn't provided, mainly movement while characters were talking.
Scene transitions can be a bit jarring because things will skip without a page break. I understand the need to summarize, but most of the time, it left me more confused.
In the end, it's a good book. It's easy and fun to read.
Was very excited to hear that Clarissa Johal had given Poppy her own story. After reading her book, Struck, I was already wanting to know more about Poppy. The story quickly sucks you in. Poppy has great style and so much depth to her, all the characters in this book have such unique personalities, living and dead ones. Like all of Clarissa Johal's books , I couldn't put it down. A definite recommend read.
I absolutely adore this book! It was the perfect mix of snarky comments and creepy entities. I finished this in a single sitting and don't regret it despite only surviving the next day thanks to coffee! Poppy is witty, sarcastic and fierce! With an awesome fashion sense haha The story flowed well and even in the less action-y scenes Poppy's wit kept it entertaining.
I'll admit that I definitely scare easy, and this book had me sleeping with the TV on for light. I swear someone was watching me from the corner of the room! I fell in love with the characters and I hope to read more of their story!
The novel is beautifully crafted and there isn't an unnecessary word or phrase to be found, while the rhythm of the prose makes it so easy to read. The tension builds up nicely throughout the narrative and the author gives the reader every reason to fear for the safety of both the living characters and those in the spirit world who need Poppy's help.
There was only one thing I didn't like about this novel: the ending. It happened too soon. More of the same, please, author!
Poppy is not your typical mortician. She is obsessed with the color pink, and she can see and speak to the spirits of the dead---and isn't a big fan of socializing with the living. She's a little clueless, and a little reckless, but that just adds to her appeal.
The plot is well-developed, and flows well. There is plenty of action--something is happening on nearly every page.
So far I've read three books by this author, and each one has been better than the last. I hope we get to read more about Poppy in the future!
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**
This book had me cracking up. The main character, Poppy (duh), sounds super cute and adorable. She is a little clueless in some ways, but not in a way that makes her sound dumb. It’s actually kind of sweet, though frustrating. Especially when it comes to her friendship with Dante. Her personality is fun, even though she has to deal with some crappy situations.
She works in a funeral home and sees and talks to ghosts. She usually helps them find their way to the afterlife. But something is stealing the souls of the people she is trying to help, and she needs to find out who or what is doing that. The way Johal has written it, you can tell that Poppy cares about the ghosts she helps. It seems he has an emotional connection to them and legitimately wants to help.
Overall, I really liked this book. I thought the cover was really nice too, which isn’t something I normally notice or care about. There were times where I felt like there may have been a few too many side characters, but it wasn’t anything that really took away from the story. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun and quirky paranormal/ghost book.
Poppy is one of those fun, funky characters that you would love to be friends with. She has her own unique style with a attitude to go with it. On top of this, she works at a funeral parlor and can speak to the dead!
This made for some funny conversations and a truly unique story. That being said, this did have a mysterious side as well as nerve wracking darker side. All these elements mixed together kept me glued to this book. I definitely recommend it and will be watching for more stories from this author!
