Basia rates it: 5/5 stars
Connor rates it: 5/5 stars
When Connor told me to cancel my library hold because I couldn't possibly wait drove the book across the city to my front door, I knew it was going to be good. I had worried this wouldn't quite measure up to the first two books, but I think it surpassed them. Ritter's prose is poignant and humorous at the same time, deeply profound in a way that knocks you off your feet and fulfills you all at once. The cast of characters is, as always, delightful: full of favorites old and new, and one favorite who is both new and very old at the same time.
I was somewhat concerned this might not live up to the previous two novels, but once again Ritter's prose delivers in SPADES. Ghostly Echoes is both compelling and delightful to behold--humorous in all the right places and detailed in all the curious ones, with our regular motley crew and a number of interesting additions to keep things moving forward. Besides, there aren't many books that I'd drive across town (through traffic, no less) to deliver to Basia's door when I know she won't even be there to say hello.
