As colourful and etherial as the cover
Books often get off to a flying start, flag in the middle then deliver a triumphant ending, this book, for me at least, turned convention on its head. I struggled to get into the story and maintain interest in the early stages, my mind drifted as I began regretting my choice, but then about four hours into the story it very discreetly hijacked my attention and for the next ten driving hours the flame of my interest burned steadily, if not brightly.
By equal measures it frustrated and intoxicated me, frustrated because i never got a first person perspective from the main protagonist, but intoxicated for the lushious and vivid description. The author is definately not of the hollywood school of storytelling so if you want a story that follows a formula then you may feel unfulfilled but if you crave a story that satisfies on a much deeper level then the hungry ghosts is a definate contender for your attention.
