Great book! I enjoyed it thoroughly. The book isn’t anything like the movie – a good thing in my mind. I liked the movie because Kevin Bacon was in it but that was pretty much as far as the liking went. The book is short – only 157 pages which was disappointing because it could have been much longer.
The story is about a man who is hypnotised as a gag only to realize later that the hypnotist had, unwittingly, released something in his mind. He started seeing a ghost and could hear his neighbors activities for several blocks. He could also see into the future by a few days.
Of course the ghost was murdered and wanted him to find her body – that much was in the movie but it was a woman not a young girl as the movie had it. The killer was a bit of surprise but not much – well, I suppose more accurately the reason the killer killed her was a bit of a surprise and actually it seemed a bit thin but whatever.
One could see how this “gift” could really be more of a nightmare. When I was younger I thought it would be so damn cool to have these powers but later I realized that it would be a curse, not a gift. Good book – I liked it.
