    This is an enjoyable read with good pace. It follows two interlinked stories set in different time points and each written in first and third person. One story focuses on a chap writing a novel and the problematic relationship with his unforgiving wife, the other, I think, a look back to his early romantic life. The writing is clean, unpretentious and easy to follow. The erotic bits (and there's lots of them) are quite engaging and avoid (mostly) the cheesiness you often come across. All the cha [...]

    This was a thought-provoking book that had me questioning the workings of the universe and the Creator. The author does an excellent job of taking us into to the world of Jonathon Fry, who sits down to write a novel, but is soon taken down a different path. Jonathon finds himself writing about a woman he's never met. As the title suggests, he is compelled to write about this woman and then he begins to question his own sanity. This is an excellent story that is sometimes raw and serious, sometim [...]

    “God.” It means a lot of different things to different people. And if you’re like me, you’ve wondered what role He plays in our daily lives. Does He listen? Is He even there? Does He interfere on our behalf? Is He watching us? Is He ALWAYS watching us? And could he possibly be living among us? What would He do to make ends meet? He’d have a significant advantage, right? He’d know things we couldn’t possibly fathom and make choices that have no downside. Even with a “carpenter’s [...]

    This is a thought-provoking book about a man who sits down to begin writing a blog to examine his past. He gets waylaid partway through as he writes a story of his relationship with a beautiful woman who is completely unknown to him. He finds himself unable to control the compulsion to continue writing about her, and he begins questioning reality.Douglas takes us through tales from his youth with a mix of light humour and serious thought, and these become intertwined with the emerging story of t [...]

    The Involuntary Ghostwriter is a story about a man who feels a compulsion to write a memoir that is not his own. This - and some strange yet satisfying dreams - distances him from his wife. But, as with any relationship, both parties have flaws that they must learn to accept and love. The story has a lot of sexual references and descriptions, but I really enjoyed the flow of the protagonist's thoughts and narrative. This book could easily be seen on bookshelves. My favourite part was the last fe [...]

    I received this book in a giveaway. Definitely thought-provoking, but far too much sex and coming-of-sexual-age stories for me.

    A boon gave Jonathon Fry a year to write his novel but, as memories that are not his own flood his thoughts, Jonathon begins to question whether the words he has written are his own or whether he is a mere conduit for someone else. And, he is haunted by dreams of an exotically beautiful woman he has never met. His wife initially benefits from these late night dreams, until he honestly answers her questions about why he is suddenly more active in bed.The Involuntary Ghostwriter poses a number of [...]

    A Life Journey Told Through Writing At An Internet CafeMy favorite incident in “The Involuntary Ghostwriter” occurs when Jonathon Fry, in recapping incidents in his life—some accurate and some admitted distorted (for example, how computers had slipped into the story of his childhood when PCs weren’t around until he’d been an adult)—was when his mother, concerned with what she thought of as Jonathan’s unhealthy fascination with sex, sent him to church camp for the summer, hoping it [...]

    Unexpected but very enjoyableAn intriguing journey through the very troubled mind of a man at a crossroads in his life. Some of his memories don't seem to belong to him but he writes as though they do. An intriguing story within a story which holds the reader's attention all the way.
