I liked this book very much until about 3/4 of the way into it, when I began to get bored. His prose is good and the dialogue is too. The premise is very interesting (the dead exist in their own world as long as someone on earth still remembers them), but the story went on too long for me. I could see what was going to happen and it could have come to the point much more quickly and with less repetition. I still recommend it, but I did skim the last bit.
