Genre: Contemporary Fiction.
The Ghostwriter is a beauty of its own kind. It's incredibly emotional and possibly even vulnerable. It's unexpected, poetic, sad, and cathartic. It's one of those books that will think for you- you just seem to melt into the pages as if it's your own life right in front of your eyes. I am highly impressed by this one and almost at a loss for words to say about it other than it's a must have book for all readers in 2017.
This book is unlike anything that I have read in a long time. Perhaps it is also unlike anything Alessandra Torre has ever written? I can't be sure because I have only read a handful of her novels in the past, but it is quite different than one would originally think. It's NOT a romance novel. It's not the type of book that will leave you wanting more and it's certainly not one with a happy ending (although this can be debated because I think there IS happiness in the ending). It's sort of like a letter of death (for lack of a better word). Readers KNOW what is going to happen yet, they need to see in unfold before their very eyes. It also has an air of suspense because what lead to the events that surrounds the story remains a mystery until the end.
With that, I refuse to give away any of the plot for two reasons. First, there is simply no way that I can sum up this book and do any justice to it. It's the story of someone’s life and the aftermath of tragedies. How could I possibly explain it all without giving anything away? I can't. Secondly, this is the type of book that needs to be read and felt without spoilers. So, do yourself a favor and grab this one. But be aware, it is incredibly heartbreaking but also meaningful.
