A very interesting new review is up for my novel MY PROBLEM WITH DOORS (you can read a sample from the book here). It is written by someone I attended high school with and it’s fascinating to read since she shares the personal experience of what it is like to write a review about a book by someone that you know. (Also, it’s a fun insight into how people viewed me growing up, which is… kind of neat).
It’s a wonderfully honest review where she discusses the experience of falling in love with my character Jacob and how Jacob earned that with her; in the end stating that the book is a “treat.”
Ruth Frasur is a librarian with Hagerstown Jefferson Township Library. This is a sample of what she wrote:
I’m not going to get too far into the various setting and plot lines except to say that, although Jacob is cast about through time and place, he experiences many of the same situations as we who are bound by temporal constraints. His brushes with greatness do provide interesting vignettes for the reader. It is, however, in the mundane – falling in love; cherishing family; longing for connection; experiencing loss and personal disappointment – where Jacob really comes alive and helped me connect. I went from the angry reader to a fellow runner in the race of humanity.
You can read all of Ruth’s personal and straightforward review here. And you can find MY PROBLEM WITH DOORS…
- In print on amazon for $15.95 here.
- It is available as an eBook (and will work on all devices) via Google Play (here) or on the publisher’s site (here).
I hope you will consider checking it out…
What a cool review. I doubt I’ll ever get one from my hometown librarian. I still owe late fees for overdue books. If she finds me, I’m sure the library police will be tapping at my door!
Thanks for sharing this review!
