Book Review - A Prison of Lies by Robert Thomas Doran

This book throws you into the world of mental illness showing how painful events and memories can build up inside of you and can spiral completely out of control.  The book can be read by people who have never suffered mental health issues and want to take a peak inside to try and understand and also by those who have already suffered similar difficulties, which in turn may bring this usually unspoken subject to light.
The author's own mental illness has been developed into this fully detailed story, full of raw emotion, following a young man named Tom through his development from a youth into a grown man. Completely unsupported, both mentally and physically, by his peers who are such a domineering factor, they seemed more concerned about what other people thought than to really help him through such a tough hormonal time where he needed guidance with so many questions and feelings. He struggles on isolated, feeling that he is unworthy, constantly doubting himself, not fitting in, with resentment, confusion and anger building within him. 
Tom finally meets a girl called Mary, who seems to accept him and he feels accepted by her family and you almost feel relief for him until the he realizes that things are not what they first appear to be, leaving him in the end completely at a  loss. more confused and feeling like he is being dangled from a very long piece of string. The family may think they are trying to do the right thing by their daughter Mary but not realizing the long lasting effect it would have on Tom.  The silent, gradual build up of hatred within himself and for those around him slowly gets worse.
To get a real sense of what the book is about in certain parts the author uses strong and very descriptive language which requires an open mind.  The thoughts, dark fantasies and dreams in the book may offend some readers but as this is a true account of mental illness I feel that this reinforces the story to the reader.
I feel that the author has been very courageous in putting pen to paper on such a difficult subject.  The author's well written descriptive story will bring out a number of emotions as you read it including frustration, anger and there were a couple of times I literally wanted to throw the book at the wall as the author was describing events and the repetitive destructive cycle Tom was in, growing stronger with each thought. 
The book makes you rethink how you talk and treat others, how a simple look at the wrong time or a rushed reply to someone may be portrayed incorrectly.  It especially made me think about my two boys and how they take so much on board at such a young age and how it may affect them in future years.

Amanda’s Eyes By Kathy Disanto – Book Review and Giveaway! 

'this book will keep you captivated' said Espacular Aiesa after reading and reviewing Amanda's Eyes by Kathy DiSanto - Author

"I am quite taken with futuristic mystery books. Amanda’s Eyes is right on target with my sci-fi obsession. Set in the not so far off future, Amanda Joy Gregson has tangled with the wrong people in her job as a crime reporter. The Ferrymen (futuristic hitmen) set up an explosion that takes out several blocks, two CIIS agents, and leaves Amanda battered and blind. Without memory of that fateful night, Amanda gets ready for her eye transplant and recuperate. Slowly the horrible memory comes back, and after the transplant surgery, she is ready to get back on the case. Her new eyes are superb copies of of her old ones, with one slight difference… She can see people for what they really are. Her sight sees beyond the surface that some people put forward and exposes the barbaric creature beneath. 

The unfolding drama and mysterious happenings of this book will keep you captivated. Kathy Disanto, with her stunning writing, will leave you wanting more thrilling adventures!"

#Book Revew of Dog-ma the zen of slobber by Author Barbara Boswell Brunner shared with us today by The More the Merrier

"Barbara Boswell Brunner reminds me of James Alfred Wight (some of you may know him as James Herriot) in her writing. She writes straight from experience, but has a way of telling the story so you feel like you are right there. You melt yourself into the story, and feel the feelings as if you were right there. Through the stories in this book, you grow to love these dogs, and these people. You learn their lifestyle, and the lessons that each dog brings in it’s addition to the family.

This is a book to savor. I laughed, and cried, and knew exactly what they meant about so many of the things that happened – having owned several dogs in my lifetime, myself.

If you’ve ever ‘rescued’ a dog, whether to keep as a ‘forever pet’ or just to foster, you will understand and sympathize with every story, every laugh, and every tear. Somehow these amazing creatures make us want to be better, if for no other reason than just to be a better friend to them."

Read more on the book and giveaway here...

Book Description

Barbara’s vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about.
When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves.
Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!”
