The 43 Old Cemetery Road: Dying to Meet You quiz
I'm a sucker for a cute goldfish apparently. This is a very simple story that only somewhat managed to draw me in. I prefer that my contemporary novels have an original edge and a storyline that I can't see from a mile away and this one was pretty straight forward. It's also tagged as a YA novel but the writing seemed geared towards a more mature crowd. It was a pleasant read that focused primarily on dialog only. I wanted more explanation about the characters; more detail that wasn't always conveyed in the dialog.
I also didn't understand the immediate blooming relationship that occurred between Karl and the writer. I can understand his desire to help Karl and set up a couple of interview sessions so that he can find out more about him personally, but shortly after meeting and they're already taking a fishing trip together?
