"Eyes of Emerald" is a book written by a very interesting person, whom I do not know in person, but only in the virtual world. From what I know Harvey Stelman has a life that would be a great plot for a book or a movie of its own. A man stricken by MS at a young age, but still able to lead a full life thanks to his unique personality and great people around him, Harvey with the help of his young friend Andrew wrote a book based on a real life story.
The story about one of his cousins is amazing, unbelievable and still, so true and fascinating. I am not going to retell the story, the reader has to take this journey. I will just tell that from the very beginning you will be hooked to the narration, eager to know, what's next!
At the beginning the narration seems a little bit too over detailed and slow moving, but then you realize that this is how it should be. You see that from a traditional understandable life of a Jewish family, that goes by its own rules and ways, a young girl is just jerked out into a completely different world! Esther's fate is amazing, fascinating and unique.
You have to read it and I guarantee, you won't be able to put the book away until you are finished reading.
The book is published with some typos, but it does not interfere with the reading.
I am sure that the book would make a great scenario for a movie and I would advise the authors to check the possibilities of selling the idea to the film makers.
