This is one of those rare books by a debut author that touches your heart right from the beginning and makes you want to find out more about a twenty-five-year-old main character who has hitchhiked to the Maritimes in Canada and has gradually fallen away from his Christian background, finding his lifestyle to be buried in drugs, booze, and thought. The writing style, the flow of the story, introduction and development of the complex characters, intense plot with exciting twists and turns, original setting of the story - everything about this novel is a compliment to a wordsmith’s craft.
While I am really impressed with this work, I am even more fascinated with the potential that Mr. Robert’s fictional world has for the creation of future stories based on the same psychological structure. The book captures reader’s attention from the very beginning and kick-starts with a brilliant monologue on “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” The story completely does justice to its genre and stays true to its promise of delivering an engaging stream-of-conscious narrative.—Stevan V. Nikolic, Editor of the Adelaide Literary Magazine.
