BOOK REVIEW

GHOST by Piers Anthony
Released: Sept. 15, 1986

"What with the outdated, implausible plot that doesn't add up, and the narrative bogged down in trite symbolism and idiotic psychologizing: juvenile gush, as bad as Shade of the Tree (p. 251) was good."
This disorganized, purposeless hash of pop psychology, pseudoscience, and childish eroticism has the Anthony name-tag going for it, but little else. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

CHILDREN'S
Released: Oct. 23, 2012
