eBook (PDF), 308 Pages
When is a chance meeting not chance? How many coincidences have to happen before the pattern emerges? And who do we turn to when the patterns of our lives need to be changed? “Chasing Ghosts” tells the story of Kyle Stevenson, a man held hostage by his past so much so that he loses himself in time. A not so chance meeting in a bar with a woman so mysterious he won’t learn her true identity until after it no longer matters sets his life on a path to finally tie his past and present together and release him for the future. But he is not the only one on this journey. Everyone whose lives he touches finds themselves facing the decisions they have made in the past and the choices they are making in the present, and all of them ultimately must face the same questions: Why do they run? What about the people they love? Who is going to love them now that they are gone?

Jul 27, 2010Let me preface this review by saying that I'm not an experienced reviewer. On the contrary, I'm more of an un-reviewer. So consider this an unreview by an unreviewer. Furthermore, I'm not much of a reader ... or at least not much of a reader of anything that requires an attention span exceeding that of a gnat. So the fact that I completed this 300+ page novel (in a single weekend, no less) speaks volumes about it's enjoyability. But I did shell out 20 bucks for it so I figured the least I could do was read it before it took an honored spot on the bookshelf between the collected works of Scott Adams and Webster's Dictionary. Not that I've actually opened the latter, but it's sheer weight makes it a dandy bookend. But enough about me. "Chasing Ghosts" is part love story, part mystery, part psychiatrist's couch in paperback form. The box is opened, the pieces of the puzzle are scattered about the pages of the first few chapters, and then meticulously assembled so that they form... More > a thoroughly pleasing picture by the final chapter. Likeable (and flawed) characters, an intersting story line, plot twists and turns, a few tidbits of humor and even some pop culture references (past and present) make this an entertaining read. On a deeper level, I found it emotionally engaging, like someone shining a flashlight into the deep, dark recesses that contain those feeling you don't like to admit you have. I hate it when that happens. But truthfully, there's a little piece of each of these characters that we all (or most of us) can identify with. And it's that kernel of shared experience that gives the story it's impact. Notice that I've revealed nothing of substance regarding the plot. Sorry, you're going to have to read the book yourself to find out all the good stuff. So go ahead, buy the book. You know you want to. You'll be glad you did. And then you'll be writing a review to tell everybody else just how good it was.< Less
