Charlie St. Cloud Book Review

Charlie St.Cloud
Ben Sherwood


I absolutely LOVED this book. This book was originally titled The Death and Life of Charlie St.Cloud. I read the Paperback movie version.I liked the cover better. (=P) It starts out with a man named Floria telling his story about miracles and how many he's seen during his lifetime. Than he goes on to tell us about Charlie and Sam St.Cloud.  Charlie was driving underage and he crashed and that took Sams' life. We cut to 13 years later and we find out that Charlie is living in the graveyard where his brother is buried, and he can see him. Every night they play baseball in the woods by the graveyard. If Charlie does not get there by dusk, Sam will move on into heaven. For 13 Years, Charlie never missed a night. He's working one day when he meets Tess Carrol, a woman who's training for a solo sail around the world. He takes her out on a date and things go from there. The ending is very good. Something happens and it turns into a life or death situation. The book was a very emotional story towards the end. Let's not forget Romantic. I loved it as much as The Last Song By Nicholas Sparks. I loved this novel so so so much. I can't express it in words. So definitely 5 stars! The Movie review should be up soon.
