I quite enjoyed Dark Souls. It was fast-paced and poignantly written. The paranormal aspects weren't too bad, although they were hardly exciting either. I did like the fact that they stayed closer to the traditional type of ghost, but I wouldn't say I was blown away by them. The characters were also a little mediocre. While I did like the characters, especially Rob, I cannot say our protagonist was a stand out. In fact, I found I found her quite rude and irritating at times, especially when she was short with Rob. After everything they've been through you would think she'd be a little more patient... surely? Anyway, I just love the family dynamics and their relationship. The plot was a bit up and down. It certainly had some high points - the ending being one of them - but the downs were pretty darn boring at the same time.Overall, a very average book all-round but I won't deny that I did enjoy it.
