I was hooked by the time I finished the introduction. The story of Charlie St. Cloud is embracing, emotional, enchanting and so well written that I didn't want the story to end.
Charlie makes a promise to his little brother that he has trouble keeping but by the time you finish the book, you realize that no matter what else happened, Charlie kept that promise - to his little brother Sam and to his own destiny - and he met some interesting characters along the way with his special gift. You will love this story if you're a romantic or if you just love a good book. Charlie touches the lives of many people in his adventures along the road of his death and then his life.
