FOUR STARS: “Thomas, The Friendly Ghost” by Jeannie Walker was as strangely easy to read as the strange events in the storyline. This is a lighthearted book for those that like a not so terrifying ghost story. An added benefit is that it can be read in one sitting. The book included whimsical photos and artwork that are the “evidence” of beings from a supernatural world. If you would like a simply written “true story” that traces the events in the author’s life then this book is for you. The writing style did not conjure up the ghosts of Beatrix Potter or Ernest Hemingway but it will please those that want a simple read. If you believe in spirits then you will believe the stories; if not you will not be converted. However, despite the fact that I had rated the book Three Stars, no matter how much I try, my keyboard keeps on typing Four Stars. Thomas, are you there?
