Rooms by Lauren Oliver

Find in catalog“Rooms” is a ghost story for adults and is special if not unique as it is from the point of view of the ghosts–in this case two women of different eras who died in an old house now inherited by the children and ex wife of a sick man. What’s the cosmology here? The usual–that the ghosts have some unresolved, unforgiven, un acknowledged sorrow that is holding them back from “moving on.” Trite on its own but interesting seen side by side with the stories of the dysfunctional inheritors who must also put their pasts away and move on. Do you like books filled with modern obsessions and shallow angst?
