The author's talent is obvious in the first two chapters. There is humor, characterization, and a plot that draws you in. Levy's writing flows so naturally, I sank into the plot and was amazed to find I was on page 50 - it seemed like I'd been reading only a few minutes.

I was dubious about starting the book because I'm not a reader of ghost stories or fairytales. But this book can't be put in either of those categories. The premise of a woman in a coma who travels from place to place, looking for help, is fascinating. The author has found a new approach in a lighthearted but thought provoking discussion of ethics, compassion, and romance.

Literally The best book I've ever read! My mom found this in our attic and I read it in two days. I loved it even better than Twilight. I loved the fact that it was for mature readers but tastefull at the same time. I really cant say enough good things about this book. READ THIS BEAUTIFL BOOK!!!
