    This strange and unsettling story is a sequel to the equally strange and unsettling A Manhattan Ghost Story. It also might be one of those unique occasions where a sequel is every bit as good if not better than the original. While the first one was just a eerie love story with ghosts, this book is more structured, more plot driven and offers more of a resolution in the end. It is possible to read this book without the first one, but I suggest reading them both. That way it'll give the reader a much more complete experience plus there'll be more of an emotional involvement with the characters that way, particularly Abner's. As always, Wright isn't for everyone, but I really enjoy his writing style, the simple elegance and eerieness of it, and his books are always such quick and easy reads. Recommended.

    Character driven, suspense , paranormal, story that will keep you reading into the night. Prose runs smoothly and a delight to read. Wright puts forth the question "where the dead go, not knowing they have passed". A pleasure to read.

    Until I just signed on now to Goodreads, I didn't know that "The Waiting Room" by T.M. Wright is a sequal to "A Manhattan Ghost Story". Hmm. I wish I would have known that prior...I dislike reading books out of order. But I guess it makes sense.This book is about a man named Sam who is a Vietnam war vet who while living in Manhattan runs into his old high-school friend Abner who he hasn't seen in 20 years. It turns out Abner has communication to a seperate world of the dead, and upon reconnecting with Abner, the spirit world is reaching out to Sam as well! Sam is determined to help Abner before the world of the dead totally consumes him.Ok, when I started this book I thought it showed a lot of promise. It was interesting, unique, and I wanted to learn more. Yeah it was bizzare, but nothing too comes part 2. Part 2 was WAYYYYYY over-the-top, unbeleivable, and an utter dissapointment. This would have been a 5-star rating had it just maintained the consistancy of part 1. For the month of October I was planning on reading just horror and Halloween themed books, but the ridiculousness of part 2 of this book has drained me and I think I may just break away and start to read "normal" books once again.

The only problem is they are dead and they live in the walls. Abner warns Sam to stay away or he will pay the price. Sam wants to help his old friend no matter what! Sam learns that the dead do walk the earth.

    This sequel to A Manhattan Ghost Story expands upon the ideas of its predecessor, as one Sam Feary meets up again with old childhod buddy Abner Cray (the protagonist of Manhattan Ghost Story), who is still coping with the after-effects of having been exposed to and caught up in a parallel plane of existence, a plane populated by dead people (different planes of reality = recurring theme in much of TM Wright's work). Sam soon finds himself descending into the same realm. A solid follow up, not quite as good, but recommended to fans of the first one.

    J'ai eu l'impression que tout était bon à mettre dans ce livre sans pour autant donner au lecteur les bonnes explications à ce qui arrive. Visiblement, les évènements se passent parce qu'on a donné à l'histoire une dimension "paranormale" mais il manque des explications, des ressentiments du héros peut-être, pour nous faire gober l'histoire. Il y a plein de bonnes idées mais qui ne sont malheureusement pas abouties. Trop fouillis.

    A sequel to A Manhattan Ghost Story. I hadn't realised there even WAS a sequel so between the 1st & 2nd books it's been nearly *cough* 20 years. Unfortunately, this meant it was a bit too long for me to have any clear recollection of Ghost Story but still an enjoyable (if that's the right word) little horror story.

    I've always felt T M Wright has a slightly odd style, particularly with dialogue, but it works! Really enjoyed getting back into one of his books, it's been too long. Will be reading more very soon (still quite a few I've not read). If you want a change from gory in-your-face horror, I highly recommend this book (and all his others too).

    Excellent. As good as Manhattan Ghost Story was, this was even better, because Sam is a much more assertive, active protagonist - and a lot easier to like - than Abner, in the first book...

    "I counted seven doors in that hallway: three on the left and five on the right."

    A fine piece of literary horror, and a take on the ghost story unique to T.M. Wright.

    Part ghost story, part thriller, a quickly read classic horror novel about one man's struggle with what's real and what is not.
