Ghost In The Machine by B.o.B --This song is for Bo…I found him this lyric video…and that's my offering…maybe he'll grant my wish???
♫Tell me where am I supposed to go?
And who am I supposed to believe.
If only you knew what I knew.
Then you could see just what I see♫
It's difficult to pinpoint what this book is, genre wise…it's like this mash-up of alternative history/steampunk/historical. It has an overall dark and somber feel to it, that left me sad…just sad for Wen, for Melik and especially for Bo.
It's said, by many, that this is a retelling of Phantom of the Opera. Unfortunately, I can't really say that it does that well, because I don't know that story. It is very well written, and the narration on Audio is superbly done. I think…that I want to keep on with the series despite the overwhelming sadness that I felt while listening to this, because I feel a need to know what happens to these characters.
