Review: 3/5 stars
Brief Summary: It's hard to give a good brief description of this book without giving away too much. If you've seen the movie previews you know that Charlie St. Cloud can see and talk to is younger brother who is dead. I think I'll leave it at that to avoid any spoilers.
My Thoughts: We read this for my neighborhood book club. I liked the premise and the ideas the author, Ben Sherwood, put forth about what happens after we die. I really liked the relationship between Charlie and his brother, Sam. Their conversations were fun and witty and I enjoyed all the parts when they are together. I thought the romance part of the book wasn't as well developed but I still enjoyed it.
Recommendations: I liked this book and it kept me interested but I can't say I would recommend it to many people. There is a sex scene that isn't really graphic but is still descriptive enough that it made me a little uncomfortable. Not for teens.
Rating: 3.1.3 Unmarried, descriptive sexual relations and moderate profanity.
Thanks for reading!
