For those of us who can admit we still haven't really figured out this "death" thing, this is an interesting perspective on what the afterlife might look like. The characters in this book were well developed and believable in their actions and emotions. A terrific read.

An interesting, unique story about a young man who loses her brother from a car accident when they were kids and how it changed his life.This book was a lot different from others I've read before becasue it's more spiritual and it just leaves one wondering about the afterlife.I did enjoy this book love the characters and the stories os love and loss just warms the heart.

To admit the truth, this is not the type of book i normally like to read, but i was immediately captivated by Charlies sad and regretful story/ Although in the beginning it bored me a little i grew to think this was an amazing book!!!

I had a fun time reading this book. I saw the movie, too. I think that after reading it for two weeks, I got a little tired of it, but still, it was enjoyable. So, yeah I recommend this movie to people who liked the movie and people who like stories about people who can see dead people.
