My Rating of this Book – 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

Okay, so I’m not truly interested in graphic novels and I’ll admit, though I had watched Ghost Whisperer on TV at the beginning, I wasn’t a big fan of that series. So, what convinced me to even pick up this graphic novel? Well, actually it was its link to Egyptian Mythology. And I have to say, Ghost Whisperer: The Haunted took me by surprise.

The book had a great plotline and I loved the four individual cases as well as the continuous mystery of the character Osiris. The only thing that troubled me was that story line seemed a bit broken up at times. I would be reading one thing and then I was abruptly thrown into another scene or topic. Not being one who usually reads these kinds of books, I’m not sure if this is normal. However, I think there could have been a better connection between events.

Honestly, I wish this book would come out as an actual novel or novelette. I would love to read it all over again. Anyway, if you just feel like a real easy-going read or if you’re a fan of Ghost Whisperer, I would recommend picking a copy up of this graphic novel.
