Before I begin my blog I would like to put out my feelings on G.O.S.T., mainly that it is a resounding, unadulterated and complete eh. Not great, not terrible. And part of the reason as to why is that it drip feeds information in way as to make it unintresting.
From the very first chapter we know that Sophie dies in December of 1969. We also find out that midway through the book that something bad happend to Velutha. From this we can probably surmise that he gets blamed for her death. But for some reason Roy keeps going thru as if its a mystery. We can already tell what happens and all this serves to do is waist time. You might say that you actually quite like the dialog and the descriptions in the intervining times, but for me I wasn’t in to it. All in all i think that this book would be better if it were more straight foreward with the timeline.
