    I don't know why I kept listening to this CD when the main character was so utterly unlikeable in her social and personal immaturity and whinyness and bitchiness. What a STUPID girl!!! I find it hard to conceive that anyone would act that childish and immature for sooooo long.... even when 'sooooo long' may only have been a few months in the context of the story. Well, I guess I would have hoped for something better - character quality-wise - out of Cameron as her Artist's Way books are so popul I don't know why I kept listening to this CD when the main character was so utterly unlikeable in her social and personal immaturity and whinyness and bitchiness.

But 'popular' and 'best seller' does not necessarily translate into lots of smart readers - just.... lots of readers. So, I guess I kept at it because..... it was there..... in my car CD player..... in a box on the passenger seat... and there was no other Book On Tape available until Library Day....

    OK. Any time you combine Mozart and a tall awkwardly handsome red head, I'm hooked. HAHA. I was hooked. I read this book in less than a week which is pretty fast for me. I recommend it to anyone that likes classical music, awkward red heads, the paranormal and really not knowing what was going to happen until the end of the book. OK.

    The story was too predictable and the characters were flat and transparent. I felt like you never really got into any character's mind...they remained the stereotypic shell of the character they portrayed.

    I really wanted to like this a lot more than I did, and I honestly think I would have if the main character was even a fraction more likeable. The problem is that it's hard to root for a woman who spends 90% of the book being surly and/or insufferable. The concept of a medium being haunted by a ghost is a good one, I enjoyed that she had a chip on her shoulder about being 'weird' and I thought her encounters with the various ghosts in it was interesting but her interactions with real people just I really wanted to like this a lot more than I did, and I honestly think I would have if the main character was even a fraction more likeable.

The concept of a medium being haunted by a ghost is a good one, I enjoyed that she had a chip on her shoulder about being 'weird' and I thought her encounters with the various ghosts in it was interesting but her interactions with real people just made you want to shake her. Sometimes you read a book and you genuinely think 'why is that character alone?' but that wasn't an issue here and everytime she worried that her 'gift' would get in the way I just wanted to tell her that it wasn't her gift that caused her to be alone, just her crappy personality. Her love interest (a red headed pianist called Edward - I can't be the only one's whose head went to Twilight?) was a sweet guy, although he wasn't without his own flaws (flirting it up with her friend in front of her, not calling, generally being a bit of a doormat). Despite them though, I found him endearing but I was maybe biased as I find sensitive, musical, intense, shy men appealing. I'd suggest giving the book a read - the scenes with Mozart's ghost are pretty fun (he has an interest in Anna helping Edward) and there are some good moments with some of the other secondary characters. The story is good, original and I would have rated it higher if I had liked Anna better as I do think it could have been more enjoyable. Most people might have a higher tolerance to that sort of character flaw than I do though. ;)

    The only reason I finished this book was because it was so bad it was funny. The main character can talk to ghosts, which sounds cool and is why I picked the book up in the first place, but the ghosts don't say anything worth hearing. You would think being dead would give them some perspective, but they do things like complain about the brand of dog food their spouse has started buying.

The book is full of cliches, and the same ridiculous phrases, like "the phone shrilled" are used so often that I really think this book should come with its own bingo board of overused sayings, so at least readers could have some reason to keep plowing through this novel. Mozart's Ghost is the literary equivalent of an out-of-tune piano being played by a guinea pig. It probably would have been much more enjoyable as a 2 minute youtube clip.

    An attempt at making the occult interesting while threading a rather plebian love story through it. Our heroine, Anna, is a medium (not a large, as the running joke goes), who has a love/hate relationship with her calling. She makes the rent giving readings, but longs to be normal. Enter the piano prodigy Edward. Cue irritation, attraction, self-doubt, miscues, etc. and you've pretty much got the story.

My quibble here is that the protagonist is so irracisible, who could like her, much less fall in love? Cranky seems to be the new trend in light writing; it's not pleasant. You can't get behind a character who is grumpy most of the time.

    I hated this book, which was a big disappointment for me because I love "The Artist's Way" by Cameron. Mozart's Ghost had an intriguing premise, so I kept listening until the 4th CD (it was on audio) until I finally gave up. The heroine was a self-absorbed whiner and I was half-rooting for her presumed romantic interest to turn out gay and want to date her brother...that's how much I disliked her. There was also more bad language and sex than I like in a book, which was the final straw for me.

    The best part of this book is the title, which will draw you in. You will then know on about page 5 exactly how the story will turn out and everything in the middle is fluff.

Easily the worst "book" I've read this year, perhaps this century, perhaps ever.

I could actually imagine this concept as romantic comedy movie. It could be very cute and fun if done well. Unfortunately, this author did not write a good story. Someone else would have to write the screenplay. In my opinion the novel was a failure.

    Julia Cameron’s Mozart’s Ghost thoroughly enchanted me with its playfulness. Indeed, the renowned author of The Artist’s Way, took me by the hand in her romp around New York’s Upper West Side and never let go. Anna, elementary teacher by day and medium for the bereaved by night, meets classical pianist Edward but fails to disclose her after-hours occupation, leading to capricious riffs from the ghost of Mozart himself.

Cameron, a non-fiction writer, memoirist, and author of books on spirituality, is a musician herself. In her hands, we are served special insight into a musician’s mind and practice. Then too, she is able to make the paranormal seem perfectly normal. A fairy-tale with a large enough dose of reality to seem credible, Mozart’s Ghost is a novel to curl up with on a rainy day, a long winter’s night, or a weekend at the beach.

    I picked up a copy of this book for a euro after reading the blurb and being very intrigued. The ghost of a famous composer trying to set up a medium and a pianist? It sounded like the plot of a silly but fun rom-com that I'd watch when I'm sick. Nope. For one thing, the chapters (for the first half of the book at least) were about 2-4 pages long so the plot, which was just flat all the way through, felt very disrupted.

    I wasn't sure I was going to like this book when I started it, but I did get into it eventually. Unlike some of the other readers who have commented, I did not dislike the heroine. I actually found some of her values, such as not spilling everything out to everyone, rather appealing in this confessional age. Once Edward was introduced as an attractive character, and once relationships began to develop, I became more interested.

It has been a great offset to a very serious, very depressing book I am reading for my Book Group- a book which all should read, but which will not leave one feeling better about certan aspects of US history. It has been a bit of a relief to also dive into the world of young New Yorkers, love, music and ghosts.

    I read a few articles that referred to Julia Cameron's book "The Artist's Way," so I looked for an audio version at my library. They didn't have it, but they had this instead. I thought that if her book apparently helped writers, her own writing should be good. Maybe fiction just isn't her thing. I listened for about 20 minutes and gave up.

    Honestly this was terrible - there wasn't anyone who was really on Anna's side. Mother - No, Harold - not really, just for what she can do for him. Tommy - no, her one female friend - Nope, and her brother was the worst of the lot. Anna needs therapy to learn how to cut out toxic relationships because all the ones in her life are just that.

    Writing from the perspective of a professional violinist who knows the world of prestigious musicians and all they go through, and as quite a quirky personality myself, I particularly enjoyed this unusual and fun novel. I related very much to both of the characters and their particular struggles. All around enjoyable!

    the story is fine, even interesting but the heroine leaves a lot to be desired. Stereotypical, cranky, inept woman who just needs a lover to complete her. If she had been a better character the plot would have been more enjoyable.

Anna Chester is a thirty-something substitute teacher by day and a spiritual medium by night. Since Anna’s childhood she has been blessed with the ability to communicate with those who have departed this life. Most of the time these communications are in her mind, that is to say, they cannot be heard or seen by mortals around her. Occasionally, as in Mozart’s case, these communicants materialize and often in places and situations where they prove a major distraction for Anna. Mozart’s interest in Anna and her gift stem from her proximity to Edward Hopper who is a classical pianist preparing to compete in a piano competition and who has recently become Anna’s downstairs neighbor. Mozart has been Edward’s unseen mentor for most of Edward’s piano playing life. At this juncture in Edward’s musical career, it becomes vital that Mozart be able to convey his timely messages to Edward. Enter Anna and her gift. Anna has a love/hate relationship with this gift she possesses. She likes her ability to give service to people who have a need to communicate with those beyond the veil. At the same time she desires to be like everyone else, to be “normal.” This situation has served to make her something of a b–ch. She is short tempered, rude and self absorbed through a good part of this story. That said, it doesn’t seem to hinder the budding relationship with Edward. Even though I grew weary of Anna’s negativity, at the same time I enjoyed the delightful characters, both living and dead who are a part of Anna’s life. A word of caution with regard to language. There is not a lot of profanity in this novel, but the infamous “F” word does make an appearance once or twice, and more disturbing for me was the use of the Lord’s name in vain a number of times and THAT was regrettable and unnecessary in my view. That said, I did like this story.

    Anna has two sides to her life, during the day she works as a supply teacher in an Elementary school, in the evenings she uses her talents as a Medium to help connect the dead with the living. Anna has left her childhood home in Michigan State in the Mid-West United States and moved to New York City to live in a cramped studio apartment. Her life is a constant balancing act trying to keep her two very disparate personas apart and secret from others afraid of what people might think of her Medium Anna has two sides to her life, during the day she works as a supply teacher in an Elementary school, in the evenings she uses her talents as a Medium to help connect the dead with the living. Anna has left her childhood home in Michigan State in the Mid-West United States and moved to New York City to live in a cramped studio apartment. Her life is a constant balancing act trying to keep her two very disparate personas apart and secret from others afraid of what people might think of her Medium work. Her life begins to turn upside down when a young man called Edward moves into the downstairs apartment along with his piano. Their first meeting does not go well and Anna begins to dread the constant piano playing from downstairs that infiltrates her apartment and interrupts the silence and peace needed for her medium work in the evenings. Matters are further complicated by the arrival of a ghost who on the side of Edward enjoys his piano playing and constantly goads Anna. Along the way we meet Anna's gay friend, Harold who is Head at the school where she works. We also meet her good friend Stacey who gets through boyfriends like hot dinners and has more money than sense! The book is interspersed with Edward's letters back home to his neighbours in Maine, Mr & Mrs Oliver. They are his "sponsors" and pay his rent and basically helping him financially to become a talented musician in New York. Alan, Anna's brother pays her a visit, staying with her in the apartment so he can visit some Jazz clubs. He meets Edward in the Greek Diner on the ground floor and invites him back to Anna's apartment to listen to some Jazz. After many hilarious incidents, Anna and Edward get together. I have to say this is definitely not my usual sort of book, but I really enjoyed it, Anna is a deep character with strong emotions and I loved reading about her life and exploits and the Medium side to her life does give the book some added interest. I recommend this book, it is fun, light reading, easy to pick up and disappear in to; great characters that feel real and hilarious laughs throughout. Brilliant!

    I chose this book for many reasons: It’s set in New York, a place I’d love to visit. Emma, the main character is a teacher, like me. Her love interest, Edward, is a pianist who plays Mozart and, as a little twist, Mozart’s ghost haunts their apartment building. It looked and sounded like a cozy winter read. Unfortunately, I found myself angry with Emma a lot of the time. I was alarmed at first to learn that Emma is a Medium who communes with the dead as a side job.

Unfortunately, I found myself angry with Emma a lot of the time. I was alarmed at first to learn that Emma is a Medium who communes with the dead as a side job. I usually stay away from anything dark and sinister, but Cameron explained and showed the ghosts in such a way as to make them seem like the living. It’s just that most people can’t see them, a bit like Sixth Sense, but not nearly as riveting. The main conflict in the book involves Emma’s relationship with her apartment neighbour, Edward. Edward has moved to New York for a year to study classical music and prepare for a piano competition. Emma finds herself speaking to him in ways that suprise her. Long before Emma realizes it, the reader knows she is in love with him. Many supposed problems complicate what seems like an easy romance – he likes her, she likes him. The most believable problem is that she doesn’t want to disclose that she speaks to ghosts, as this has turned away all of her boyfriends in the past. Unfortunately, this reticence drags on for so long that I said at one point “I can’t wait until this book is over!” Emma and Edward are both endearing and well-drawn characters. However, I found that their romance as the main interest in the book was lacking. It might work better as a ninety-minute romantic comedy. Descriptions of New York in the fall were nice, but nothing new. Emma’s dedication to vintage clothing and anti-technology lacked freshness. Maybe she’s just a bit too much like me. I think a main character needs a bit more spunk and a little less self-pity.

    This novel sounded fascinating; the main character could talk to ghosts, and one of them was The Mozart....what's not to love? So I grabbed the audiobook, and started listening. Soon enough, I saw my mistake. This medium is supposed to be in her 30's, but she acts like a freaking child, and is angry ALL the time. She's whiny, and usually throwing fits about issues that normal adults usually ignore or get over. I wish she wouldn't agonize so much about being "normal", and enjoy her gift...!

So much self pity, it's unreal. And this aversion to classical music? Wtf, seriously....? I'd love it. And, I find it very relaxing. It's odd that this woman cannot, for me. The novel is full of clichés, like "the phone shrilled", every chapter. It's very predictable, simple, and chock full of characters that were obviously written in to further the very weak plot lines. The letters Edward, the pianist wrote, were simple to the point of sounding like a ten year old wrote them. Also, the story fell well short of its potential. It's a real stinker. Cranky seems to be the new trend in light writing, and it's weird..... Who can possibly care for or love someone who is SO grumpy, all the time? She annoyed the hell out of me. Whatever the author was going for, I just couldn't feel it. To make matters worse, the narrator, Kirsten Potter, sounded snide, or condescending most the time. Her accents were seriously atrocious...!! Her Russian was stereotypical, and her Mozart was abysmal. All others sounded the same. I couldn't manage to get past the 20th chapter, and gladly gave up. Who can possibly have this much time to waste on something that annoys you SO much...? I don't. Ugh...! 1 star.

Anna was never completely satisfied with anything and all she did was complain and find fault with everything in her life. She had a great studio apartment with a concert pianist (Edward) living downstairs from her and basically giving her free concerts every single day. She had some really great friends who really cared about her and wanted her to succeed in her 'mystic' career and her family was also supportive. She had a wonderful mentor for the spiritual side of life but she was just so negative all the time...she could never really enjoy all that she had. Edward was an adorable and passionate piano geek with crazy red hair....he never seemed to notice or be bothered by Anna's negative streak which caused me to have a hard time believing in the romance between the two. What guy is going to put up with 'bitchiness' 24/7...??? Mozart's ghost was a pretty rude yet entertaining and funny fellow....it would have been fun to have him spend more time in the story causing all kinds of trouble with his silly antics but the author chose to keep him to a minimum even though the book is named after him and his ghost. All in all....there were some humorous parts and some romance......but the spark was just not there for me. I expected more from this book but I was left with my expectations lacking.
