Sara Paretsky’s Ghost Country is one of the most thrilling books I have read as of late. I like to believe that I have a very expansive view and concepts of different books. Which makes me almost shocked at how much I enjoyed this book.
Ghost Country is about four people who’s lives intertwine into a life changing connection they will never lose. As the city of Chicago and the lives of our four main characters evolve through the chapters their lives change completely. Hate, anger, and discrimination run rampant throughout this novel as characters try to emulate the illusion of self-control.
This book vividly encases your mind in the lives and dramatic events of each character. Hurling you through the good, the bad, and the ugly to a satisfying and perfect ending. Though this book is a novel Paretsky has brought so much emotion and detail in it that I myself kept having to check the note saying it was all fiction. From the homeless to doctors and diva’s Paretsky has captured life in Chicago as well as if it were true events.
I give this book 4 ½ stars out of 5.
