Laura Whitcomb’s writing is deliciously wordy, witty, and wonderful, and the story surprisingly complex with many mature themes. The author did a fantastic job of minding the formal speech and thought patterns of Helen’s background and contrasting them with the jarring reality of present day, all tiinieblas ruminating on human existence and forgiveness and the value of a life well-lived.
This is whihcomb exceptionally intelligent YA book t 4. This is an exceptionally intelligent YA book that does not spare the emotions of love and grief and the heavy weight of responsibility. I particularly enjoyed Helen’s delight at the burst of sensations she experiences when as she discovers the touch and taste of certain things for the first time, as well as the sad, aching pull of her attachment to her human hosts. The suddenness of the physical relationship between Helen and James surprised me, though, as until that point everything had unfolded very slowly and naturally.
Still, the connection between these two lost souls is undeniable, as they are so well matched as lovers of literature, people of integrity, and most profoundly, as the only known beings in that plane of existence. I’m astounded by the places this book was bold enough to explore, and I am deeply satisfied with how the story was resolved. It’s truly remarkable when an author can make descargwr ghost feel so eloquently and painfully human. View all 56 comments. Jun 04, Emily May rated it really liked it Shelves: Ghosts are somewhere down near zombies on the sexiness scale, could I really become invested in tnieblas a relationship?
Apparently yes, but these ghosts have found a way around the whole touching predicament and wasted no time getting back into it by possessing the bodies of people whose rntre have abandoned them.
I have read some of the negative reviews on A Certain Slant of Light and the thing most often pointed out is something which usually annoys me: The reason this whiff of insta didn’t bother me so much in this case is because I was sold on the idea of their loneliness, the pain Helen felt in watching so many people grow, have fun and die whilst she can never be a part of their lives I could believe in the desperation. And that’s all I really want: It’s why I’m turned off by insta-love and destiny-bound lovers, because that’s “tell”, not “show” and it’s empty.
In this novel, Laura Whitcomb gives me what I need to care about the couple, whilst maintaining a beautiful and slightly creepy atmosphere. However, this story it still far more than just a romance. Helen and James are haunted by a few scattered and incomplete memories of their past and they must put the pieces together to remember who they are, how they died, and what holds them in this strange limbo.
But will the truths of their past be too much to handle? Or will they finally get some peace? As well as this, they also begin to discover why the souls of their host bodies descaryar abandoned ship, what it was in their lives that made them give up.
James possesses the body of a drug addict who’s been in trouble with the police multiple times and lives alone with his temperamental brother. With both parents gone, the two young men struggle along by themselves. Helen, on the other hand, possesses the body of a teenage girl who’s parents are extremely religious – right away we are introduced to the “abortion is murder” bumper stickers – they have prayer time and read the Bible every night before bed.
As events unfold, it becomes clear that not tiniehlas is as holy as it seems in this family and, though it may not be the main part of the story, this subplot about religious hypocrisy was tinieb,as brilliant I recommend this for paranormal fans who enjoy something a bit out of the ordinary. So, just to let you know, this is actually the correct spelling in Britain. Just thought I’d save trolls some tiniebls time. View all 13 comments.

May 24, Hannah rated it did not like it Shelves: What a disappointing read this was. After seeing all the high ratings for this including my own daughter’s 4-star ratingI was eagerly anticipating a unique and touching ghost story. Sad to say, nothing in this story touched me in any way, and in fact it’s one of the worst books I’ve read in so far, filled with ham-fisted stereotypes and unbelievable character actions.
Whitcomb actually had a fairly interesting premise starting out.
A Certain Slant of Light
Helen, a young woman dead for years, makes her way o What a disappointing read this was. Helen haunts them until they die, and then finds another to stay with. They are never aware of her, however, so Helen stays in this static limbo for over a century. Her current host is a senior high English teacher, Mr.
Brown, and it is in his class that she realizes that there is, in fact, ddscargar who sees her. This is where the story disintegrated into a cliched, stereotypical YA teen-angst drama.
I am supposed to swallow the idea that Helen, a post civil war young lady, and James, a WWI doughboy who died 85 years ago and now inhabits a 17 year old stoner boy’s body, meet and instantly fall “in love” love, really? Guess all those decades in limbo does crazy things for the libido, regardless of the time period and social mores that Helen and James lived in. And we all know that teenagers just can’t control their sexual urges and will do the deed with anyone, anytime, anywhere.
I found this entire section of the story trite and enhre, and it didn’t lwura anything to further what might have been an interesting story about death, the afterlife and the premise of haunting.
Whitfomb essence, tiniebals became just another bad piece of YA fiction, filled with foul language, inappropriate sex scenes and cliched stereotypes of teenagers and religious people. Utter dreckage in between. View all 19 comments.

A Certain Slant of Light (Light, #1) by Laura Whitcomb
No, not in a literal tsunami-earthquake kinda way, but in a my-cell-phone-and-laptop-just-so-happened-to-break-on-the-same-day kinda way. And when you are a 17 year old girl, that is really, really bad. So while I was rolling around on the ground suffering from texting withdrawl, a thought occurred to me: Go read a book, you idjit!
And in no time at all, I forgot the outside world existed. To say I loved this book would be a severe unde I started this book the day the world ended. To say I loved this book would be a severe understatement.
So here is a deacargar of adjectives I feel are adequate descriptions: Awesome, addicting, seductive, intense, articulate, lush, fantasmic, suspenseful, beautiful, poetic, dark, amazing, unique, mysterious, romantic, excellent, gorgeous, wistful, eerie, superb, breathtaking, magnificent, wonderful, fascinating, Gothic, OMG, astounding, perfect, sublime, tender, painful, and last but not least, Jesus.
So, in short, it was damn good. I just loved everything about it. The luscious writing, painfully real characters, intriguing premise and hushed tone. Everything, especially the ending, was just perfect.
As soon as I was finished with it, I wanted to start it all over again and I very nearly did. Initially, I thought this book would scare the crap out of me, with the creepy cover and all. I read Laura Whitcomb’s book The Fetch first, and I loved it, even though this novel is more universally loved.
So perhaps I was biased going into it. But I’m positive I would have loved it no matter the scenario. I’m a little worried it won’t be as good as Certain Slant. View all 16 comments. Apr 30, Tatiana rated it really liked it Shelves: I don’t think I would have read this book if it wasn’t recommended to me. I am just not that into ghosts. However this book is so much more than that. It is about love and finding peace and happiness in your after life. The motives of forbidden and impossible love and “body snatching” reminded me strongly of certain Stephenie Meyer novels we all know, but SM’s books seem to a be pile of mediocrity in comparison to A Certain Slant of Light.
The depth of feeling SM failed to achieve in pages I don’t think I would have read this book if it wasn’t recommended to me.
