As someone who has always had an interest in mediums, I knew I had to read this book. I have watched shows like Crossing Over with John Edwards and The Long Island Medium in the past and although I am skeptical, it was still a source of entertainment for me. So I did feel disappointed when I didn't make a connection with this story.
The thing that I had the most trouble with was the fact that the writing style was too “stiff”. It felt like the author's interactions with the clients were overly formal. It would have been better if the dialogue was written as if they were just holding a normal conversation.
Also, I would like to have read more about the author. Giving me background information on her life and how she knew she had a gift would have been an important part of the story for me. It would have made her dealings more believable. Not to mention telling some of her own experiences with spirits. Every medium has them.
I kept getting distracted because the author would speak more about the things going on around her while she was doing the readings, than the readings themselves. Right in the middle of telling someone about their future or speaking to a dead loved one, she would veer off to how the DJ was playing the music too loud or what the medium at the table next to her was doing, which made it difficult for me to keep my mind on the subject at hand.
However, if I had to choose a favorite part of the book, it would be the Halloween party readings. Finding out what kind of costumes everyone was wearing was the highlight of the chapter.
I'm not trying to say the entire book was bad. There were some good readings. If this book had been more focused on those, and if the writing style would have been different, I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more. So the only thing I can say is, give it a try. I have seen good reviews for this book. I suppose it's just a matter of opinion.
