As a person, all too familiar with the black claw of depression, I was impressed by Joannes Rhino's ability to appropriately convey the hellish impact mental illness can have on an individual and how it effects loved ones.
When I previewed this book, I was struck by the flawless writing and decided
that I needed more. I was given a free pdf by the author, but decided to
upload it to my tablet via Kindle Unlimited. I give credit where it is
due and this author is amazing!
Joannes Rhino is a brilliant
author who has created a believable and remarkable work of prose. This
is a beautifully written book that effectively conveys the world of
James Maddox, a person suffering from depression. His world is darkened
by the loss of his Emily, and James is both grieving and stuck in a
depressive grief process, but it's not that simple...the story develops
into much more with unexpected twists that kept me guessing and turning
This author clearly understands the complexity of
mental illness, whether it is well-researched or from personal
experience. His descriptive prose describes James' world in such a way
that invokes emotion from the reader. I couldn't put this book down, and
had a lump in my throat as I read it. This is truly one of the best
indie literary masterpieces that I have read.
