Book 23: The Ghosts of Belfast

ghosts♦ ♦ ♦ During this book, the phrase, “I see dead people” kept bouncing around in my head. Not a new premise (and from another book entirely) but one put into a modern Northern Ireland novel. I just wasn’t too keen on the plot. It seemed too simple at times and the story line didn’t stray far from the path it seemed to be on. That being said, I didn’t quit listening and I, as I usually do, enjoyed Gerard Doyle as the narrator. The details of the story about West Belfast jumped out at me because while I was reading the last few hours, we were visiting family there. I did ask a lot of questions about The Troubles and plan to take a Black Cab tour next time we’re there. So, for the story I would give it 2.5 but because of my Belfast connection, it gets a 3.
