This is a great book if you like a good scare. I guess it sort of has a romantic side.

Interesting book. Was quite enjoyable. The way Jacob would do whatever Oh wanted just by a plain smile or eye lash flicker, even against his better judgement, became quickly over used.

This book for me was a real page turner, I couldn't put it down. I liked how the author took to the concept in the beginning and end of how us as people want lots of things but their will always be a downside to what you want like noted in the book, Superpowers. No matter what super power you would want their's always something that could go wrong.

It's ok. At first, when Jacob and Milos noticed that something was up with Oh, and they started discussing death and reading Mr. Fielding's, um, life-story, I couldn't quite get my head around the concept that Fielding is trying to explain. Then, after much thought (and irritation), sudden realization: The death of others doesn't go away, it builds up. Or something along those lines. I'm pretty sure Patrick Carman could have done better explaining it (at least to me). The ending is quite... disappointing to me. *spoiler* Sure, they kill Oh, but I was hoping she'd stay dead, even though I knew that wasn't what the authot is gonna do.

Great book. i really enjoyed every minute of reading it, but the ending did not satisfy me. like everyone i would've appreciated it if there was an epilogue on how he deals with his life after, other than that it was amazing.

I really liked this book, it was very hard to put down once I started. however, also wish we could have heard more about Jacob a few years on, to see how he's dealing with his new life.

We all sing the same tune sooner or later. The black symphony of the dead.
