Book Review:
The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo

Title: The Ghost Bride
Author: Yangsze Choo
Published: 2013
Language: English
Pages: 373
Rating: 3/5

Set in colonial Malaya, Li Lan has few prospects. But one day, the prominent Lim family asks her to become their dead sons ghost bride; she will have a home for the rest of her days, but at a terrible price.

This book was pretty good. It's an enjoyable read and has some really fascinating elements to it. It actually turned out to be a lot different than I had imagined, but in a very good way.

I especially enjoyed the setting, the culture and the ghost world. I enjoyed the pacing of the plot and there were loads of interesting twists and turns. I also enjoyed a lot of the side-characters.

However, I felt a pretty big disconnect to the main character, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why. I also though the romance aspects were a bit dull, but that's probably just me.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction and paranormal fiction.
