Hourglass was a different sort of novel from what I was expecting. It is a little more complicated that I had originally thought it would be. I liked that it was more than just seeing ghosts. I'm not sure that I loved it, but I still enjoyed the story.
I liked Emerson. I liked that she struggled with what she sees. It wasn't something that she had dealt with since childhood. I loved her older brother. He was a great character and it was clear just how far he would go to help out Em. Even if they had no idea what was happening to her.
The part that I struggled with was with Jack. The before and after didn't seem to sit well with me. It just didn't seem to mesh well. But I'm holding out for the second book to see how things play out.
