Tour: The Fathers, the Sons and the Anxious Ghost

The Fathers, the Sons and the Anxious Ghost by Jamie Adams
Contemporary Fiction

Three guys in their thirties have something in common. Their children all go to the same school. One day a tragic event leads to them having to deal with a lurking aftermath which draws them into each other’s lives and causes them to rethink their attitudes to just about everything.

The children tell the second part of this story, ten years after the initial events. The dust seems to have settled until one of them uncovers information that throws everything back into chaos.

The third part… well that will have to wait.

The Fathers, the Sons and the Anxious Ghost is a tale in three parts. I liked hearing the story from the different perspectives, as just in real life, the story changes based on who is telling it. The plot is good, but the storytelling itself is a little choppy for me. I wish the transitions between narrators has been a little smoother, at times I had to double check who was narrating the chapter. A decent read, just needs a little polishing.
