As you probably already know, the story is of a young boy named Cole, who claims, "I see dead people", and his therapist, Malcom who believes at first that he is only treating an emotionally disturbed young boy. As a side part of the story Malcom has a wife he deeply loves and is trying to rescue their marriage that he feels has grown cold due to the fact that he has been consumed with his work and not been there for his wife as he was in the early part of their marriage. Any more details and I would spoil the book, so enough said.
This book was published by Scholastic, which would lead one to believe it is a children's book. I am 40 years old and enjoyed it immensely. It kept me up until 2am to finishing it off and now here I sit with bloodshot tired eyes typing this review the morning after.
All ages will enjoy this one.
Thanks for reading,
Though Lerangis is judicial in what deleted scenes he chooses to adapt, there are some very nice compromises between the script and the finished film. He opens a chapter with an expository but emotional description of the dead men that two of Cole's toy soldiers represent to him. Shyamalan shot this scene with Cole telling Malcolm the story of these two real soldiers but it wasn't seen until the DVD's release. But the best example of Lerangis' economy comes in the hospital scene after Cole has reveals his secret to Malcolm. Shyamalan originally scripted the scene to end with an overhead shot of Cole in bed with oodles of ghosts all around him. It would've been a cool shot, to be sure. But it was forced perspective, too literal.Read more ›
As Cole always saw dead people that are really scared, it makes you feel afraid also.You will be consumed by the in-depth descriptions of these lost spirits and how Cole and Dr. Malcolm Crowe deal with them. You will join the way of Cole to find out why these spirits come to him and how he will get rid of them. He touched my heart that he was a small child and facing so many scared dead people and how mature he was. The ending of the story is really surprise. If you don¡¦t read the book, you really can¡¦t guess about the ending. I Love this book also I am sure this is a good book for you to read!

A great book. It's quick, sweet, and to the point. Cole really touched my heart with how mature he was for such a small child, yet still just a little boy at heart. Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2001 by Teresa C. Hart
