    One thought on “Gap Year in Ghost Town”

    1. This was absolutely hilarious and endearing and FULL OF GHOSTS. Aka one of my favourite topics. There's nothing like killing off characters like starting the book with most of them dead. Epic. I also can't flail enough over how FUNNY this book is! Anton is definitely a new favourite narrator because all he does is talk and talk add in a bucket of sass to that and generally nearly get himself killedd as much as I love a dark broody YA hero, we need more happy talkative ones?! Plus AUSSIE AUTHOR R [...]

    2. Trigger warnings: violence, death of a friend, death of a child, parental abandonment. 4.5 stars. I've been excited about this book since I first heard about it in November/December of last year. Likea book about ghost hunting that's set in Melbourne?? OBVIOUSLY I was on board. And I was not disappointed. This was SO MUCH FUN. Basically, Anton finished high school six months ago, not quite sure what he wanted to do at university. His father talked him into taking a gap year in which he works in [...]

    3. Gap Year in Ghost Town was an unexpected awesome read for me!Gap year is set in Melbourne (home town represent xD) Anton our main character is hilarious so straight off the bat this book hooked me. I mean it has Ghosts, A+ Melbourne references, amazing aussie slang AND smartassary could I ask for more?I didn’t exactly love the authors short story in the Anthology and I’ve never read any of his other books so I went into this with rather low expectations and I’m kinda glad I did because it [...]

    4. ON HOLD AT @ 26%I was feeling it and then it felt like it was trying too hard to be Percy Jackson. I was really shocked when I read the main character was a year younger than me since they read like a 12 year old (similar to Percy Jackson in the first book). I’ll pick this up again later.

    5. This review first appeared on Readers in WonderlandINITIAL REACTION5 THINGS ABOUT GAP YEAR IN GHOST TOWNA different kind of Halloween readThis is a book about ghosts, but it’s not a scary haunting thriller type ghost story. It’s much lighter and more enjoyable. Which I’m grateful for because ghost stories creep me out.Percy Jackson x SupernaturalI know we hate book comparisons, but this just fits so well! Anton reminds me a lot of Percy in terms of humour and voice. He’s sassy and has su [...]

    6. Throughout the quiet, darkened streets of Melbourne, eighteen year old Anton Marin searches for ghosts, delicately releasing their spirits from Earth by easing their passage. Anton is a delightfully charming young man who is reluctantly pursuing paranormal investigation to appease his father. The Marin spectre legacy now falls upon Anton, the Sight ability escaping his father who documents each encounter, maintaining the Marin archives from a hidden retreat in the family owned bookstore.Rani Cro [...]

    7. Action packed and cleverly plotted. The supernatural dangers really come alive ;-)I love the cover art (by Craig Phillips) and design (by Ruth Grüner).

    8. This book made me laugh, and that's saying a lot. Years of reading in awkward public places has left me emotionally unable to show my feelings when reading most books (always odd when you laugh like a maniac on the bus, or have to start mopping your tears up with napkins at a cafe) But I was home today, and zooming through my to-read pile led me to finally starting and finishing this. It's just so damn AUSTRALIAN! From Tim Tams to possums it just shrieked loud and proud of Australia and I loved [...]

    9. I actually really enjoyed this one. It was a light read and got me fully invested the whole way through 🙈 AND did I mention that one of the main female characters is Assamese/Chinese Malaysian? It is SO NICE to see an adopted character as a lead! And this book is set in Melbourne. If you want to get a feel for what an Australian city is like, then I definitely recommend this one. The humour was spot on 👌

    10. I will be honest. When I saw the cover I did not think I would be interested. It looked like a book aimed at a 12-year-old boy. Well I have not been 12 for quite some time now and I have never been a boy, so I was very wrong because I loved it. I will not say it is perfect because nothing ever is, but it does deserve all 5 of those stars I am giving it.Our main character is male, which is somewhat rare in the books I tend to read but it worked so well in this book that I want to read more male M [...]

    11. I borrowed this book from the library last week because I'd been hearing some great things about it, and the cover's so cool. Besides, I'm a total sucker for ghost stories. I love ghost stories so much I've even written a series about a ghost hunter set in Sydney.So of course this one caught my attention But when I picked it up yesterday, there was something about it that just didn't work for me. I pushed on, but by Chapter Four I decided to put it aside. All the things that would usually make m [...]

    12. 3.5 stars. Read this to find out what could be lurking in the back lanes, old mansions, creepy greenhouses and sedate suburbia of the world's most liveable city; Melbourne

    13. Thank you to Allen & Unwin for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!Find this review and more on my blog The Rest Is Still Unwritten!Gap Year in Ghost Town by Australian author Michael Pryor is a ghostly tale of adventure and danger set amongst a Melbourne backdrop. Anton Marin is a member of a long line of descendants capable of seeing ghosts and who have spent their lives hunting them down and helping them move on. Living with his father and running a used [...]

    14. Fun book about ghost hunting in Melbourne. I loved the Australian feel and references and all of the little pop culture mentions. The story is interesting, about a ghost hunting family and a ghost hunting organisation, and the different ways they send spirits on to "the other side". Fun characters and just a good read :)

    15. Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsGhosts are real and they manifest in all different types, a Moaner, a Weeper, a Lingerer, a Rager and it's the obligation of the Marin family and companies around the world to deal with them. Anton Marin is the main character of this story and very much like any other seventeen-year-old in Australia he's just graduated high school and is doing a gap year but his gap year is a little different. Before Anton moves to a career and a future going to a university next year h [...]

    16. Gap Year in Ghost Town was the YA Room’s August Book Club pick, and boy, it did not disappoint.Set in present day Melbourne, Anton Marin is takes a gap year after high school to figure out what he wants to do with his life and (possible) university career. His father talks him into going into the hereditary-family business of ghost hunting to make up his mind whether or not it’s the career path for him. The Marin family traditionally believe in assisting ghosts to ease their pain and allow t [...]

    17. Here's the list of reasons why i need this book like yesterday:- i beyond love ghosts (this has some lockwood and co vibes so i'm in)- my mom's family name's marin so i'm in any other way- this cover looks simply perfect and i love it so i'm in- i beyond hatw goodread's "new releases" posts cuz they never put this kind of books in there so i never know about not so popular books about kick asses and then i found them in my update feed and that's not fair- i'm in, that's allhope to get bacc on tr [...]

    18. Gap Year in Ghost Town is a funny book. Anton is a lovely character. However, he struggles to be more than that, and the book itself is so busy cracking jokes that it isn’t as fun as it could/should be. I was dumb and accidentally deleted the book from my library app before reinstalling it, so a lot of my favourite quips, lovingly highlighted, are gone. Here, however, is a wee sampler of the sort of hilarity you’ll find in this book. “ You looked as if you’d become intensely interested i [...]

    19. To be very honest with all of you out there on the InternetsI went into this novel with a more than jaundiced eye. I read the summary, saw the cover, and thought, "You bastard, ripping off Lockwood and Co."- a book series for which I have the utmost admiration. I thought disgustedly that this was someone's way of just making a few bucks while having few, if any, original ideas.Well turns out I was wrong? Sure, there's a young woman with a sword hacking up ghosts; sure, Anton Marin has names for [...]

    20. This book made me laugh, it made me tear up, and it definitely made me get defensive when someone insulted my hometown (Melbourne FTW guys)While I was reading, the one consistent thought that I had was that 'Gap Year in Ghost Town' is a Percy Jackson-esque story, with Ghosts instead of Gods, with more Pop-culture references, and set in Melbourne, and it's so much fun!The characters seemed almost set in their ways for most of the book, but when they started to change, it happened pretty quickly, [...]

    21. Gap Year in Ghost Town by Michael Pryor follows a teenage ghost hunter named Anton Marin (not Martin as this book reminds), and a new ghost hunter to the area Rani Cross, each with vastly different methods of ghost hunting. Along with a few witty remarks and sarcastic comments, the pair go on a misadventure to find the reasoning behind a spree of ghost related crimes, and Anton making an important decision about his ghost fighting future. This book is a lot of fun to read. In a lot of paranormal [...]

    22. 2.5-3 stars.This book was okay. Unfortunately, because of all the positive reviews and high ratings it's received so far from other Aussies, I was expecting a lot more than just 'okay'. For me, it failed to deliver.This novel relied a lot of humour to make it work - the narrator, Anton, is a smart-mouthed, witty teenager who has a comeback for everything and a mouth that works before his brain sometimes. But I found the continual, non-stop use of humour and pop-culture references to be either hi [...]

    23. This is a fun read with lots of action and plenty of repartee. It's set in Melbourne (Australia, for those who don't know), which I really enjoyed. I've only visited there once, but this book reminded me very much of it. Anton Marin has just finished school. He wants to go to university, and he's pretty sure he doesn't want to be a ghost hunter. As a compromise with his father, he decides to take a gap year from his study and spend it full-time on the ghosts, helping them find their way onwards. [...]

    24. Marvellous book.I'm not sure if Pryor will keep going with the series, but I'm hoping that will happen.Set in contemporary Melbourne in a variety of locales, the book centres around the protagonist who, as the title suggests, is having a gap year.'Gap Year in Ghost Town' centres in the coming-of-age of Anton Marin.I'd recommend this book for anyone 11 and older.Not making comparisons, but if you like secret societies who hunt the undead, a fair whack of heroic action, some romantic undertones an [...]

    25. 3.5 stars. Fun and fast paced with a sarcastic, snarky protagonist who is not quite sure he want to go into the family biz of easing ghosts on their way but has agreed to do it for a gap year between HS and uni. One evening Anton meets kick ass Rani from the Company of Righteous who’s approach to ghost hunting is more stab first ask questions never and soon they are working together to defeat the influx of aggressive ghosts and learning that these more than one way to handle ghosts and each ha [...]

    26. A nice idea about older teenagers who can see ghosts and help them, in various ways, not be ghosts anymore. There was a decent plot, but the execution did not resonate with me. The humour felt ham fisted and the tone offered no real tension. The Monty python, castle etc references did my head in. I’m sure there was a star wars and lord of the rings in there somewhere as well. Not funny and not really suited to the target audience I’d have thought. Hard to recommend an age category, maybe ear [...]

    27. Original and laugh-out-loud funny book set in Melbourne surrounding the world of ghost hunters. As the main character is on a gap year and deciding whether ghost hunting is going to be his chosen profession, a surge in ghost crime hits the streets, and he is met with a visiting hunter from England to try and solve it. Witty and sarcastic banter fill the pages, followed by a nice undertone of violence versus compassion and strong, positive friendships.

    28. An unusual book to read - very, very funny and well written. So good in fact that I kept reading bits of it out to the Mr and Master of the family and ended up reading them the whole book because they got hooked on the snippets. There were a couple of editing errors which tripped me when I was reading it, and I'm not sure younger people would get all the jokes (which is a shame because they're really good!) but overall really highly recommended.Thank you Mr Pryor for another great book.

    29. briefly Gap Year in Ghost Town is a real page turner and one young adults, and young at heart can relate to. Set in urban Melbourne with a backdrop of awkward teenage misfit meets sword sharp and savvy Brit Rani. A teen who's come down under to remove the growing threat of ghosts by force. Anton uses a more easing method of transition for the anguished and in some cases crazed spectres. They must find a way to work together.Great cover, great book. Full review shortly.
