Recommends it for: Emotional Thinkers
After reading Jamie Rich's The Everlasting, I had expected the follow up (billed as the third chapter in a thematic trilogy) to be another extremely enjoyable light indie-unrequited-love-story. While the book does indeed deal with unrequited love it's anything but another light indie love story. Have You Seen The Horizon Lately? is a deeply philosophical and gut wrenchingly emotional book dealing with loss, the search for self and how we try to connect or disconnect with the people and world aro ...more

Necessary disclaimer: The author is a pal, and I'm the first name in the acknowledgments.

There were some shaky bits at the beginning that didn't seem to flow as well as I would have liked them to. As pivotal a character as Julia was I just didn't feel that much of her back story was necessary and, honestly, didn't really inform or impact the third act of the story much. Still, the book ended on a very strong note and watching Percy and Julia connecting was really natural and enjoyable. Not my favourite of Rich's books but that's possibly because I think it was one of the more compli ...more

The third book in JSR's romance trilogy, A good read that makes you sympathetic to the two main characters, one a young colledge girl trying to live her dreams the other a writer futily trying to escape the real world by emersing himself in his nightmares.
