Conversations With Spirits

The story of a dissipated genius in a borrowed hat and coat by E O Higgins

Review for Conversations With Spirits

Conversations With Spirits is a fabulous book. It's a beautifully paced, rip roaring story that draws imaginatively from a wealth of literary styles to create the kind of novel you wish you could read in one sitting. Trelawney Hart, the most engaging of anti heroes, provides the perfect foil to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and their journey into the murky world of early twentieth century spiritualism is paved with twists that are funny, exciting and sometimes even a little thought provoking. The dialogue is believable and each conversation reveals a little more of how events change and develop each character. The author's thorough research provides the kind of intricate but unobtrusive attention to detail that creates vivid settings and a genuine atmosphere. The philosophy behind the publication of Conversations With Spirits is quite possibly the blueprint for the future of successful literature. The featured books survive on their own merit. This book deserves, not just its success to date, but the kind of popularity that leads to even greater things. It's an excellent read. The book itself looks beautiful and the author is an all round good egg. What's not to love?
