it was amazing

Wow! This was an intense book. It reminds me of an old book called ‘Johnny Got His Gun’.
Bryan Healey’s writing is amazing! You drift so easily from Max being in the ‘void’, to a memory, and back to the ‘void’ … it’s kind of incredible how well Mr. Healey does this! Since it jumps back and forth through time in his thoughts, it seems like it should be jerky, but it truly isn’t!
It’s gripping and emotional and maybe makes you ponder things you’d rather pretend would never happen, but do. You really feel the claustrophobia and panic he feels being stuck inside himself the way he is…which I must say was a little overwhelming at times…but these are the feelings the book is trying to convey and it totally succeeds! It’s an amazing story of love and pain, sadly, lots of pain…Max and Jenny have been through the ringer that’s for sure.
Again, it’s a beautifully written book and I will look for more of Bryan Healey’s writings because of it!
