Wallace is a seemingly heartless, career-driven lawyer who ends up dying from a heart attack while alone at the office. At his funeral, he meets a woman who can see him. She says that she is a Reaper and she brings him to a teashop to meet his Ferryman, who is supposed to help Wallace come to terms with being dead and help him prepare for the next step of his journey.

I loved a lot of Under the Whispering Door. There's a sweetness to the whole book, with likable characters, heartfelt moments and a found-family vibe.

The book didn't always work for me though. The pacing of the book felt off and it seemed longer than it was. Sometimes the dialog seemed unnatural, like there was a list of things that they had to say during each interaction.

I tried to read this last year but quit halfway through because of the issues that I mentioned. I'm glad that I gave this another chance and finally finished it. ( )

While a nice, hopeful, read this books overstayed it's welcome by quite a bit. It felt like there was a lot of repetition and the secondary love story plot felt forced and entirely unnecessary. ( )

Under the Whispering Door was written by TJ Klune, the same brilliant author who wrote one of my favourite books, The House in the Cerulean Sea. I seized the chance to read more by Mr. Klune. His characters are always multi-faceted, many of them are queer, others people of colour. Klune's books are inclusive, and powerfully written.

I found this book terribly painful, and I wept through the last few chapters. I don't know whether right now was the worst time or the best time to read this novel. It's largely about death, and living a full life, and as I am coming face-to-face with my own mortality, the story both reassured me and terrified me.

The book also made me ache terribly for someone who understands me the way the lovers do in this novel. I will say that I found the romance far too like the one in The House in the Cerulean Sea. It was far too predictable that the two characters will end up together. I also didn't like the last-minute literal plucked-from-death trope, I found it unconvincing and a little annoying. That being said, I really did like this book.

Mr. Klune, you owe me Kleenex. ( )

Hoe is het mogelijk dat ik niet meer wist dat ik dit boek al een keer gelezen had? Geen idee. Maar ik was er nu echt van onder de indruk. Meneer Klune is hard op weg om een van mijn favoriete schrijvers te worden.
Wallace Pierce is een nietsontziende advocaat die leeft om te werken. En dat is dan ook alles wat hij doet, totdat hij plotseling overlijdt aan aan hartaanval en op zijn eigen begrafenis in de kerk wordt opgepikt door een jonge vrouw, Mei. Hij kan niet geloven dat hij dood is, maar hij ziet zichzelf liggen in een kist. Mei is een Reaper, zij haalt de overleden zielen op en neemt ze mee naar een plek waar ze kunnen wennen aan het idee en op hun eigen tijd kunnen doorgaan naar het hiernamaals.
Wallace komt terecht in een thee-winkel in Charon Crossing die geleidt wordt door Hugo Freeman, een jonge aantrekkelijke man, die gay is. In het huis boven de winkel wonen ook Nelson, de opa van Hugo en Apollo, een hond, beiden overleden maar ze blijven hangen om een oogje op Hugo te houden. Ook Mei woont daar. Langzamerhand begint Wallace te wennen aan het idee dat hij dood is, maar hij wordt ook verliefd op Hugo en dat is onhandig want ze kunnen elkaar niet aanraken. Wallace wordt steeds milder in zijn ideeën en hij krijgt een nieuw doel.
Het gaat over vertrouwen, onvoorwaardelijke liefde, vriendschap en behulpzaamheid. Heel fijn boek. ( )

If ever there was an author to watch out for, [Klune] is definitely that author.

A delightful tale about chosen families, and how to celebrate differences.

This inclusive fantasy is quite possibly the greatest feel-good story ever to involve the Antichrist.... The House in the Cerulean Sea will delight fans of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series and any reader looking for a burst of humor and hope.

There is so much to enjoy in Under the Whispering Door, but what I cherish the most is its compassion for the little things―a touch, a glance, a precious piece of dialogue―healing me, telling me that for all the strangenesses I hold, I am valued, valid―and maybe even worthy of love.

This is a sweet narrative about the value of asking questions and the benefits of giving people (especially children) a chance to be safe, protected, and themselves, regardless of what assumptions one might glean from, say, reading their case file.
