I have absolutely no problem against this book, it had a great idea for a plot and the short stories were amazing, but that's just the problem. The SHORT STORIES were amazing. The other plot about Jack wanting to come back into the world of the living is just so boring and flawed that I just couldn't get into it. My thing is that they did mention a lot in the book itself that Katie and Meryl had a close friendship, but we never got to see any of their friendship since most of the book was spent reading short stories that Jack wrote. And the thing about Jack wanting to get back to living and will do anything to be alive again just never seemed like a plot device that was interesting because it only happened in the last 40 pages of this 300 page book. I honestly feel like if the book focused on Jack slowly taking over Meryl's body and gaining her trust in this lengthy read I would've liked it better, but they squeezed the plot into the last bit of the book and it just felt forced. It's an okay book, but it could've been way better with the potential it had.
