The Inhabited World by David Long



I devoured this book. It's a glimpse into the mind of a spirit left to wander the house where he committed suicide. He watches the people who inhabit his home - trying to piece together what happened in his own life. His story stays just out of reach until Maureen moves in.

Long's writing is descriptive and deceptive in it's ability to drag you in.

Leave me a comment here if you'd like this book - my buddy the Random Number Generator will choose the lucky recipient on Wednesday July 22nd.

Love, The Hotfessional

UPDATED: The winner is witchypoo! Congratulations witchypoo!

Sounds good. I'd like to read something a little less rhymey-rhymey than Dr. Seuss.
