Uno de esos excepcionales libros que revelan los misterios invisibles del mundo que nos rodea “Charlie St. Cloud no era el mejor ni el más brillante muchacho del condado de Essex, pero sí, sin duda, el más prometedor” comienza este extraordinario libro. Pero cuando Charlie y su hermano pequeño Sam toman “prestado” el auto de un vecino para ir a un partido de los Red Sox en Boston, la noche acaba en tragedia. Al principio, se cree que los dos hermanos han muerto, pero la insistencia de uno de los bomberos consigue revivir a Charlie. Mareado y confundido, Charlie se da cuenta de que tiene un compromiso que guardar, una promesa hecha a su hermano en los breves momentos en que estuvo muerto.  Trece años más tarde, Charlie está a cargo del pequeño cementerio donde está enterrado su hermano. El otrora chico más prometedor de Marblehead, Massachussets, trabaja cuidando el césped, lavando monumentos y consolando a los dolientes. Pero Charlie tiene un secreto, una habilidad extraordinaria que adquirió en ese accidente años atrás. Charlie puede ver, hablar y hasta jugar con el espíritu de Sam. A este mundo mágico llega Tess Carroll, una bella e independiente mujer a la que el destino conduce a la vida de Charlie. Su hermosa conexión les llevará a una carrera contrarreloj y a tener que decidir entre la vida y la muerte, entre el pasado y el futuro, entre aferrarse a ciertos sentimientos y dejarlos marchar —y al descubrimiento de los milagros que pueden ocurrir si simplemente abrimos nuestros corazones.

The author makes it a point to mention just about every iconic place and building in and around Marblehead, which, at first, is kind of endearing, but then it gets a bit silly and forced. The plot is a bit hokey, but the book was entertaining enough that it held my interest and I wanted to see how it all played out. Definitely not very profound reading, but sometimes that's fine.
I love books about any kind of spirituality. This wasn't only about spirits or hauntings. It was a love story and journey into your soul. The main plot is Charles' poor decision to drive when he didn't have a license and as a result killed his little brother, Sam. Sam meant the world to Charlie and they promised, as Sam appeared to him, to meet every night in a certain part of the woods to play catch. The rest evolves beautifully and the characters are unforgettable. I recommend this book to anyone who doesn't turn their nose up at anything unexplainable. I was really sad when I finished it. It was absolutely wonderful.
Charlie and Sam St. Cloud have been close to each other. They've hung out with each other, having fun together. That all changes when they get in a car crash that kills Sam and the pet dog and Charlie gets saved in the nick of time. Thirteen years later, Charlie has a job as an undertaker at the local cemetery, where he goes into the woods to play with the spirit of Sam, just like he promised thirteen years ago. This arrangement gets complicated when he meets Tess, an optimistic and energetic individual who shows up on his doorstep. Before he knows it, he's going out on dates with her nonstop. Which conflicts with his arrangements with Sam but will he stay the path or will he move on with his life? And what about Sam, who hasn't moved on either? Which path will he choose to take? Guess reading this story will help one find out and it'll be worth it.
This is a beautiful story told with depth and understanding of human needs and emotions. As a reader, I felt myself rushing to reach the end...even though I was sure of how the story would end. Charlie St. Cloud loved long and loved well. His Death and Life is a must read story, a life's story not unlike that of many of us. This novel may be classified as fiction, but there's more truth in its pages than one would find in many books of nonfiction. Please read it; you won't be disappointed.
I had seen the movie adaptation about a year ago, and I liked it so much that I decided to read the book. Generally, the book will be much better than the film, but in this case, I felt the film did a better job of connecting the characters and events. In the novel, the main characters are in their late-20s; whereas in the movie, they were in their early-20s. As Sherwood admits in the Afterword, this change added a hope and vitality to Charlie that wasn't as apparent in the book. The novel was well written; I did enjoy Sherwood's prose and his turn of phrase; and the book was just different enough from the movie that I didn't feel like I was reading something I already knew. I think lovers of the movie (like me) might be a bit disappointed, but the book was an enjoyable, quick summer read.
I'm not sure what I expected when I picked "Charlie St. Cloud" up from the bookshelf, but I quickly grew attached to the story of two brothers remaining lovingly loyal to one another after literally being separated by life and death.

After Sam's death, Charlie puts his life on hold in order to stay close to his dead brother of whom he has the privilege of seeing every evening in the cemetery. In the midst of illustrating the almost religious routine Charlie has created to ensure he never misses a visit from his brother (every single day for thirteen years in fact), Ben Sherwood throws a woman who is obviously going to be tied into the storyline for Charlie's sake. Though predictable, Sherwood surprisingly throws a few curveballs into the story which end up forcing the brothers to observe how they have each held each other back for thirteen years.

If you are a fan of Nicholas Sparks, Ben Sherwood is sure to please you. At various times throughout the story, I felt the detail Sherwood installed was redundant. Sherwood, however, makes a point to draw a full circle for the reader so that the details he adds are not just for glamour, but serve a purpose (for the most part). I was completely swept away with Charlie and Sam's unique bond that superseded Death's calling. Overall, Sherwood is one superb author I wouldn't mind reading over and over again and "Charlie St. Cloud" is a compelling love story. Happy reading!
You caught me! I'm the one who never heard of the book or the movie, but just decided to try it based on the Amazon recommendation.

I loved the characters in this book, and while the premise is sad, I didn't pity Charlie. If I'd thought Charlie was pathetic or had regrets for his decisions, I would have probably dumped the book. Instead, I admired his level of devotion while still willing him to do what was necessary when the time was right.

The plot advanced quickly and, thankfully, skipped over all the garbage that can make a book tedious. Just enough info is presented about sailing to highlight it without making it a boring infodump for the uninitiated. The presentation of a possible hereafter is what I'd call structured yet vague. It managed to paint a pleasant picture without excluding (or offending) anyone's faith. In other words, this whole book was done just right. It's certainly a book worth reading and worth recommending to others.
