    What disappointed you about The Spirit Clearing?

    Alternately boring, sappy, and senseless. The story never seemed to go anywhere. The characters did random things for no apparent reason, then abruptly changed their mind or attitude and did the opposite. SPOILER ALERT: The whole "it never really happened" explanation is totally unsatisfying.


    What could Mark Tufo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    SPOILER ALERT: A whole book that was pretty much a dream, with the abrupt unexplained shifts-in-reality that occur in dreams, is pretty frustrating to read/hear. It's like someone telling you about their wacky nightmare for 9+ hours. For example, the sheriff shows up and is oddly hostile, says some other-wordly creepy things, but then later shows up and is friendly. The main character just accepts this with no question.

    I would have liked a story that builds into something more meaningful than, "Oh, you just imagined it." The weak explanation about the young souls not being ready to be collected just makes no sense. The characters can't even make sense of it, let alone the reader/listener.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    I thought the narrator did a good job.


    What character would you cut from The Spirit Clearing?

    The Spirit Clearing itself. It had no meaning to the rest of the story, as far as I can tell.


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy the "smart ass" humor, though at sometimes the jokes were completely out of place with the scenarios.
