My one complaint is that first-time author Nicolai should have put out the cash for a good editor. Typos aside, Alex is a compelling novel that literally kept me on the edge of my seat. I spent every free moment I had reading this book, and although it was sappy and clichéd at times, it was equally heart wrenching and genuine. I wouldn’t call it very original in that it relates the typical story of a ghost that comes back to deal with unfinished business, but I do like that this ghost is only five years old and therefore limited in his capacity to relate concrete details to his father. Nevertheless, Alex is a quick and worthwhile read that does not disappoint.
