Descrição

Ghost Radio is a terrifying novel about a ghost-story call-in radio show that inadvertently opens a doorway into the paranormal, giving voice to the dead and instigating an epic battle for the souls of the living.

From the cramped bowels of a dimly lit radio station, Ghost Radio is beamed onto the airwaves. More than a call-in show to tell scary stories, Ghost Radio is a sanctuary for those sleepless denizens of the night, lost halfway between this world and the next.

Joaquin, the hip, melancholy host, fields calls from believers and detractors alike. He is joined in the booth by his girlfriend, Alondra, and his engineer, Watts. When a huge radio conglomerate offers to syndicate the show, neither Joaquin, Alondra, nor Watts is remotely prepared for what is about to happen.

Joaquin remains a skeptic, even as he begins to feel himself drawn further and further into the terrifying stories he solicits on the radio. Slowly, he finds himself unable to distinguish between the real world and the world populated by the nightmares on Ghost Radio. He is forced to confront his past and his own mortality in order to save that which is most precious to him and repair the crumbling wall between the living and the dead.

A HarperAudio production.

    Fantastic first novel
  • (4/5)
    At first I was put off by the changing POVs, but slowly the story snagged me as it got more and more surreal. No spoilers here, you'll have to read it for yourself!

    Interesting, kinda hard to follow, at least in my opinion but a good story.

    (#29 in the 2009 Book Challenge)Craziness. A host of a ghost/horror true story call-in talk radio show starts having his own supernatural experiences. There are A LOT of things wrong with this book. First, the dialogue is beyond the pale, it's so clunky. That was possibly the most horrific part. Second, the author seems to take gothiness seriously, as in he believes that adult women who choose to wear goth clothing and make-up have an inherent intensity and edginess and I almost hesitate to say it, also coolness to their characters. I had no idea that people over the age of 15 felt this way, ever. And I say that as someone who spent a lot of time, money, and energy in my misspent youth cultivating a fabulous goth wardrobe in the hopes that people would think I was intense and edgy and cool, and of course the reality is much more in the realm of Goth Talk. Third, and I'm not exactly sure about this so perhaps people could correct me, it's hard to tell as a non-musical person myself, but I suspect it's usually a bad idea to try to write about a fictional band and to describe the music as radical and, well, again with the cool and edgy, and expect readers to take it at face value. On the plus side, it actually passed the page-turning test with flying colors -- even with all these problems it was easy to commit to the story. And while the creepy factor was a bit uneven, the parts that were successfully eerie were very twitchy indeed. I even liked how the author handled the ending. From reading the back of the book, I learned the author is also an author of graphic novels, and that makes a lot more sense to me. I could imagine the terrible dialogue working much better in a graphic novel form. Oh, another good point about about the creepiness is that each chapter is fronted by a very sinister little pen and ink drawing, and they enhanced the tone so much -- so yeah, graphic novel probably a better idea.Grade: CRecommended: Not unless you are some sort of crazy horror enthusiast who will read anything ... but I do think it's a good idea to remember this author's name because I think he can only improve and the good parts of this book were good enough to make me want to keep this guy on my radar.

    I began to read this book anticipating an exciting ghost story. I was disappointed. The whole premise of Toltec's and a portal between the living and the dead, somehow does not fit well into the whole story. At times it was hard to follow the sequence of events that led to the end (mercifully).... the best part of this book were the stories told by the people who called "Ghost Radio" the program. This book was quite the waste.

    I found this book quite creepy in places, and very interesting throughout. It lost half a star from me for being a bit disjointed and hard to follow sometimes, but overall I found it a very good read.

    I did not enjoy this book. I found the format disjointed and distracting, the story without meat, and the ending contrived. Yuck.
