This story is very intriguing to me. I am enjoying the way it is written. I am excited to continue to read more. I am a aspiring writer, so to read others work it is inspiring to me. Thank you
I just love this story. I can hardly wait for the next day. Thanks Tribune, and of course Mary Logue
This story is too slow paced. A woman moping around the house, buying cat food, dusting. Even if I don't read for a couple days I don't feel like I've missed much. Not the sort of serial that people line up at the wharf and get into fist fights over.
I have really gotten into "Giving Up the Ghost." At first I forgot to read it for a day or two and would have to catch up on-line. Now it is the first section I go to in the paper each day. I love the easy pace of the story and following Wendy's thinking as she goes through the grieving process. She doesn't work through all of this in a straight line--she's all over the place--and that seems very real. The supporting cast of characters and her cat are fun to get to know. I will miss this read each day when the series ends!
Thank you for publishing Mary Loque's "Giving Up The Ghost". I looked forward to the story every day. I hope the paper does this again at some point. Maybe something heart warming and uplifting to get us through the dark days of winter ending about April 1st, just when the days are long enough we that know spring might actually be near.
It was very difficult for me to not just buy the e-book, inhale it and be on my way. But, I savored this like a well prepared meal and forced myself to just read it everyday. Like some other readers, it was the first thing I went to everyday. I hope we see more of these.
I read 2 installments in the paper and felt drawn to this story. It paralells my life so closely it brought tears to my eyes. Today I read it in it's entirety and relived some of the most precious moments of my life. It's been a year and yet I feel the loss as if were yesterday. Thank you for writing this diary and helping me keep his memory alive.
Thank you for printing "Giving Up The Ghost". I looked forward to reading it everyday! Hope you do this again!
Really enjoyed this story everyday. Hope to see more in the future. Liked it so much I bought the e book.
That's it? It's over? That was the worst book I ever read. I'm SO glad I didn't pay for it.
