    Thirty-something Midwesterner Mark Fife believes he has successfully moved past the accidental death of his young son, Brendan, as well as his subsequent divorce from his college sweetheart, Chloe. He's successful, he's in love again, and he believes he's mastered his own memories. But then he is contacted by a strange woman who tells him not only that she owns his old house, but that she believes it to be haunted by Brendan's ghost.

    Story
    Would you listen to You Came Back again? Why?

    This was a decent story, but somewhat predictable, and I struggled to like the main character. He describes himself as struggling to not be a sissy (not the exact word, but you get the meaning), and throughout the story I kept thinking to myself Yup, he sure is. That made it difficult to connect with him. Several of the other characters were great, and helped to move the story forward, especially his father.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Holst’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reading was excellent. I've listened to other stories read by Scott Holst, and they are universally easy to understand and not prone to "over-acting" which is one of the things that drives me crazy about some readers. Scott did a good job of giving subtle differences to the characters voices so you can easily distinguish who is speaking. His pacing is perfect for this story.


    Any additional comments?

    All in all, it was worth reading, but I won't listen to it again. Excellent job by the reader, Mr. Holst.
