The Appointment – A Book Review

Copyright: 2017
Rating: 5/5
My Synopsis:

The country is in lockdown and Jacob Johansen is one of the few people who isn’t totally devoid of feelings, emotions, and memories. In this scary and lonely time, Jacob receives a letter that offers an opportunity of a lifetime. But can it be trusted? If Jacob decides to take on this special offer, will he be happy with the results, or will he regret his choice? All this and more will be discovered in Luke P. Narlee’s novel, The Appointment.

My Review:

Luke P. Narlee’s novel, The Appointment, is proof that a treasure trove of fantastic indie authors exist. If ever a book can prove a reader wrong that an author must be well-known to be talented, it is The Appointment. The novel is fresh, fast-paced, thrilling, and doesn’t contain a single dull moment.

From start to finish, The Appointment keeps its readers interested and on edge. Not only is the novel entertaining, but it also makes one stop and think; questioning humanity at every flip of the page.

As someone who tends to be a bit picky about what they read, I must say that I was highly impressed by The Appointment. I instantly fell in love with the plot and Narlee’s writing is fantastic! His words are powerful and have the rare ability to make you feel part of the story; as if you have a deep relationship with the characters and know where they’re coming from.

I can honestly say that The Appointment is one of the most creative books I’ve read in a while. I cannot wait to see what the rest of the series has in store!

I highly recommend reading Luke P. Narlee’s The Appointment. Its mysterious, thoughtful, well-written pages will blow you away! (also on Amazon and Goodreads)

A Quote From A Reader!

A Quote About Abstract Clarity!

B.W. Ginsburg

There’s nothing better than receiving random compliments about your written work when you’re a writer! Just last week, I received this lovely compliment from a friend on Instagram about my new short story collection, Abstract Clarity:

“I was going to read it in the car on our weekend trip but there was just too much stuff going on in the car so last night after I got everything done and the house was quiet I started reading your book! I was so tired but I kept saying to myself “just one more page – just one more page” and as I was reading I got a little scared…I mean because I was being sucked into the story! (It was a good thing) So – tonight I’m going to continue reading after the house is quiet! Thanks for such a great read! You are a talented writer” – new_writer_on_the_block

The Stranger – A Book Review

Google Images

Copyright: 2016
Rating: 4.5/5

My Synopsis:

Everyone has their secrets – especially in Harlan Coben’s, The Stranger. In the city of Beachwood, OH, a man mostly known as ‘The Stranger’, goes out of his way to expose the secrets of others. When Adam Price is told something that changes his life forever, he is forced to deal with a whirlwind of emotions and make decisions he never thought he’d have to make.

My Opinion:

Who knew that a story about someone exposing secrets could be so entertaining and take you on such a wild ride? Harlan Coben once again puts you on the edge of your seat as you wait excitedly to find out what happens next as Adam Price grapples with the fact that his life is far from perfect. The Stranger is full of wonderful plot twists and characters that you find yourself both loving and hating – sometimes even wondering how you should feel.

The great thing about The Stranger is not only is it fast-paced and exciting to read, but it also makes you think about the human condition. Coben manages to make us think without lecturing; making The Stranger both a thrilling and thought-provoking read!

About the Stories – Historical Hell

Abstract Clarity Stories

B.W. Ginsburg

Hi everyone! I thought I would take part of this week to talk about each of the stories included in my new short story collection, Abstract Clarity! Let’s begin with the first story –  Historical Hell!

Historical Hell is my favorite short story in the collection. I love them all, but Historical Hell was extremely enjoyable and interesting to write. I’ve always thought it would be cool to write a story about the possibility of someone escaping Hell, and in a way I think is very fresh, I created a story that explores the topic.

I’ve often found the whole concept of Heaven and Hell interesting and how, we don’t really know what either is like. We can only speculate and come to our own conclusions about the place where some of us believe we go after death. In Historical Hell, I decided to explore a different idea…
