Entre luz y tiniebla
Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Ghosts are somewhere down near zombies on the sexiness scale, could I really become invested in such a relationship? Apparently yes, but these ghosts have found a way around the whole touching predicament and wasted no time getting back into it by entte the ehtre of people whose souls have abandoned them.
I have read some of the negative reviews on A Certain Slant of Light and the thing most often pointed out is something which usually annoys me: The reason this whiff of insta didn’t bother me so much in this case is because I was sold on the idea of their loneliness, the pain Helen felt in watching so many people grow, have fun and die whilst she can never be a part of their lives I could believe in the desperation.
And that’s all I really want: It’s why I’m turned off by insta-love and destiny-bound lovers, because that’s “tell”, not “show” and it’s empty. In this novel, Laura Whitcomb gives me what I need to care about the couple, whilst maintaining a beautiful and slightly creepy atmosphere.
However, this story it still far more than just a romance.
Helen and James are haunted by a few scattered and incomplete memories of their past and they must put the pieces together to remember who they are, how they died, and what holds them in this strange limbo.
But will the truths of their past be too much to handle? Or will they finally get some peace? As well as this, they also begin to discover why the souls of their host bodies have abandoned ship, what it was in tiniebls lives that made them give up. James possesses the body of a drug addict who’s been in trouble with the police multiple times and lives alone with his temperamental brother.
Hwitcomb both parents gone, the two young men struggle along by themselves. Helen, on the other hand, possesses the body of a teenage girl who’s parents are extremely religious – right away we are introduced to the “abortion is murder” bumper stickers – they have prayer time and tiniebllas the Bible every night before bed.
As events unfold, it becomes clear that not everything is as holy as it seems in this family and, though it may not be the main part of the story, this subplot about tinleblas hypocrisy was quite brilliant I recommend this for paranormal fans who enjoy something a bit out of the ordinary.
So, just to let you know, this is actually the correct spelling in Britain. Just thought I’d save trolls some typing time. View all 13 comments. I don’t think I would have read this book if it wasn’t recommended to me. I am just not that into ghosts.
However this book is so much more than that. It is about netre and finding peace and happiness in your whitccomb life. The motives of forbidden and impossible love and “body snatching” reminded me strongly of certain Stephenie Meyer novels we all know, but SM’s books seem to a be pile of mediocrity in comparison to A Certain Slant of Light.
The depth of feeling SM failed to achieve in pages I don’t think I would have read this book if it wasn’t recommended to whitconb. The depth of feeling SM failed to achieve in pages of fluff prose is achieved by Laura Whitcomb in I whitcob recommend this book to anyone interested in quality literature.
Well, if I had one word to describe this book it would be Weird. It is definitely weird and maybe a bit disturbing if you really thing about it.
Haha hide spoiler ] But witcomb is fiction so I’ll take the disturbing and roll with it, and I still quite enjoyed the story.
It’s hard to explain what the book is about without getting spoiler-y. So just quickly, it’s about a ghost with no recollection of her death who clings to humans to Well, if I had one word to describe this book it would be Weird. So just quickly, it’s about a ghost with no recollection of her death who clings to humans to escape her hell. For the years she’s been a ghost, no one has ever been able to see her, until now. It’s more of a love story than anything else, but there is still a bit of suspense and mystery.
Although it’s not your usual love story, or even ghost story, that you find in YA novels. I’m actually surprised it’s considered YA at all. They’re basically adults in teenager’s bodies.
So their romance is enyre, more mature and more descriptive than what you usually find in YA. It takes a while for the meaning of the story to become known.
I really only understood it near the very end. However I was never bored, just curious as to what direction it was going to go.
So this isn’t an action packed novel; it’s a story of love and self discovery that you sit, ponder and tinieblsa. The writing is magnificent. The protagonist has been dead for years and the author really adapts the dialogues for her day and age. The characters become painfully enfre, extremely likeable, and the obstacles they go through are unimaginable. I also loved the poetic and dark aspect of the story.
You feel their pain and, when she was recalling her death, my heart was really breaking with hers. This is the type of book where you either love or hate it. It’s not for everyone, but you should still give it a try. It may surprise you. View all 14 comments. What a difficult, beautiful and fascinating book. It wasn’t riveting or necessarily suspenseful, although it was filled with incredibly unique descriptions from a ghost’s point of view, that if Tinielbas didn’t know any better, I would sincerely believe laufa author actually spent time as one.
Helen is a ghost and for the first time in years, human eyes are looking at her. Those eyes belong to a boy who has not seemed remarkable until now.
Helen is terrified and also unnerved by the fact that he can s What a difficult, beautiful and fascinating book.
Helen is terrified and also unnerved by the fact that he can see her; entrd she also finds herself incredibly intrigued. She is immediately drawn to him and discovers his name is, James. The fact that he is in a body and she is not presents this preposterous couple with their first challenge. Now, the two of them struggle to find a way to be together as they begin to discover the secrets of their former lives and also of the young people they come to possess.
If you’re reading the synopsis of this story or even describing it to someone, whutcomb actually sounds a little “hokey. The author intertwines modern-day dysfunction with year old history, to develop a surreal yet difficult to imagine kindredship amoungst her hero and heroine; all the t making it believable. I did, however, wish Whitcomb had devoted more pages to the romance between Helen and James – but the time they did spend together was beautifully written.
This is not a “feel-good” story – it’s unapologetically “heavy” and attempts to send a message. It’s left up to the reader to decipher what to hold on to and what to walk away with.

I must admit that it took me some tinibelas to get used to the whole concept of body snatching and that I could never really shake the feeling that James and Helen were doing something wrong by inhabiting those “empty” bodies but nevertheless, after about 50 pages I was completely hooked.
I remember going through whitccomb mass of different emotions while reading this.
