After the brilliance of Capitalist Realism, Ghosts Of My Life confirms Mark Fisher's role as our greatest and most trusted navigator of these times out of joint, through all their frissons and ruptures, among all their apparitions and spectres, past, present and future. --David Peace, author of the Red Riding Quartet and Red or Dead

Instead of the thematic cohesiveness of Capitalist Realism, one really feels that this text was thrown together by cobbling old essays from Mark's blog and trying to link them via the theme of Hauntology. You get the sense the publishers were trying to hide the true nature of the text in an attempt to nab some sales from those thinking it might be another C.R. Even the main concept of hauntology is only obliquely referenced in most of the articles, if it is at all.
That said, I did enjoy some of the articles. For instance, the ones on Joy Division and Christopher Nolan's Inception. However, by the end I was skimming most of the articles due to the fact I was not familiar with the musicians or shows, etc. The concept of hauntology is indeed interesting and useful, and that will be a take away, for sure, but it isn't explored in suitably nuanced detail to be at all definitive on the subject. In fact, you can read the intro and get most of the meat there.
Mark is a talented writer. It is impossible not to get something out of most of what he writes. He is a particularly creative music writer, it turns out, describing songs and genres in ways that are creative and striking.
All in all, if you are coming to this text because you were impressed with his book Capitalist Realism and were hoping for more of that [social critiques], you may find yourself disappointed with this as it is less a philosophical tome which uses cultural texts to explicate its main points [a la Zizek] as it is a collection of reviews given a light philosophical gloss. All in all, a minor work in this thinker's oeuvre.
I am also going to try to get any other books or articles Mark Fisher has.done.
Many parts of "Ghosts of My Life" felt like he was talking about my own life and hauntological
observations, although in a much more literate
And concise manner than I could hope to attempt!
Thank you Mark Fisher for this wonderful book I read it in just about a day and it gave me so much to contemplate!
