A Hundred Billion Ghosts DM Sinclair

A Hundred Billion Ghosts
by DM Sinclair
Genre: Humorous Paranormal Mystery

What if one day, ghosts suddenly weren't invisible anymore? The paranormal becomes normal in this fast and funny, wild and twisty ride through a world teeming with the ghosts of every dead person ever.

Ryan is a planner. Always two steps ahead, living in tomorrow. But sometimes, things just happen. Like the ghosts of every human who ever died suddenly materializing and making the whole world haunted. That was a bit of a surprise.

Ryan's new plan: to get a fresh start on life by joining the dead. One sketchy experimental procedure later, he has left his body behind and become a ghost. And that's when things start to go wrong.

Realizing he made a terrible mistake, Ryan wants to be alive again. But his body has mysteriously vanished. And whoever took it will do anything to make sure he never finds it. Now Ryan has just ten days to race across the ghost-infested world and get back into his body, or be obliterated forever. Also, he missed breakfast.

A wild ride perfect for fans of Christopher Moore and Neil Gaiman, A Hundred Billion Ghosts is a "hilarious and compelling" paranormal mystery thriller with "just the right balance of humor, poignancy, and twists".

What I Really Think
And the world changed over night. Everyone, from the beginning of human life, that had died was back in the world. Actually they had never left. But after the blackout, they are now visible to all the mere mortals. What’s more is the discovery of how to extract one’s ghost from the living with a money back guarantee. This is where our main character Ryan runs into problems. He needs to get his ghost back into his body, but his body is nowhere to be found and he’s running out of time. 

I enjoyed this light read. I immediately felt a connection to the main character Ryan’s mentality. Let’s just say we have something in common. Sinclair had to rebuild our society as we know it and I think he did a great job with addressing the new laws (you can’t charge the old ghosts rent)  and how people adapted to living with ghosts. This was all done without political or religious commentary which made it a pleasant escape from reality and an enjoyable read. 

I liked and enjoyed the twists in the story which I did not see coming. My heart pounded a little harder in some parts. 

So even though this is a story about ghosts, it is not a story that will scare you or that you need to read only during the day. 

If you've ever turned on a TV and are not picky, you've probably seen something written by DM Sinclair. He's done more than a hundred hours of that stuff, and will happily take the blame even for shows he didn't write.

Later he thought it might be nice to write books for a change. It isn't, though.

Nevertheless, he intends to keep writing as long as he is alive. After that he plans to visit Australia.

Like many Canadians, he lives in Canada.
