Mini Book Review: The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo

The Ghost Bride

The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo
Review by J. Morgyn White
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

***SPOILER ALERT***

 

I loved the idea of this story. The set up of the creepy ghost wanting her as bride kept me going. I slogged through many scenes that I wouldn’t have, to get to the next resolution, The writing itself is smooth and easy to follow. The long drawn out scenes in the other-world were boggy in my opinion. I know it was essential to cause a crisis for the rescue and the new love interest, but I really hoped for more development of what had initially caught my attention – marrying the ghost – before the big plot reveal near the end. I’d be happy to read the “new” story. I found the new love interest to be intriguing but I would have been much happier if he was either introduced earlier or there was more “ghost bride” in the ghost bride. What I did love was that the Ms. Choo had a personal connection with the world she chose to write in.
