The pages in Under the Whispering Door are full of wonder, hope, and otherworldly mystery.
Wallace is a negative, unfeeling, and uncaring lawyer. His life revolves around work until that is taken from him by death.
Hugo runs a tea shop with help from Mei. This shop is more than it seems. It is a stop for the dead. In fact, Nelson and Apollo, the dog, reside there, but they are dead.
The story leads the reader through Wallace’s experiences at the tea shop after his death.
Under the Whispering Door incorporates so many important topics, including what happens when we die, second chances, empathy, minorities, and relationships both romantic and friendly.
TJ Klune has a way with words. He embodies tricky topics in a low-intensity format making the reader think further than the book.
The characters are intense and extraordinary. Wallace makes significant changes. Hugo has a soft touch. Mei is quirky, with a quick temper and heart of gold. Nelson and Apollo make me smile. They provide lighthearted entertainment.
The Manager is complicated. His physical form doesn’t match his job at all. He is scary, mainly because the unknown is scary.
Under the Whispering Door is nothing short of amazing. Reading it compares to walking happily along a charming but isolated path on a sunny day. You may feel a bit unnerved here and there, but not enough to be frightened.
