I just borrowed this from the library. The blurb on the back promised that Amelia, of the title, is a ghost. Yet so far, three hundred and forty two pages in, I haven’t seen any evidence. It’s confusingly written, in the form of exam essays written by numerous students of an Australian school. I think the style of writing is meant to build suspence because you don’t really know what’s going on, but I prefer books to be comprehensible. Perhaps it will get better- more understandable- as I go on. I do think that the concept of revealing the plot through essays is kind of cool and unusual, but I think it kind of prevents you from getting to really know the characters. Plus I find it kind of hard to believe that during an exam everyone would be as elusive as each other while all writing about the same thing. I’m just not sold.
