About the Author

Jonas Samuelle awoke in an Arizona vineyard several years ago to find that he had no memory, a bleeding head-wound, a relentless authorial drive, and a shotgun leveled at him. Some of these issues have yet to be remedied.

Format: Kindle Edition
A compelling fantasy that bounds across mysticism, theology, and the state of humanity in an elegant and thought-provoking tale. This is a "must read" for Neil Gaimon fans and a "should read" for everyone else.

In a wasted corner of Arizona that time can't see, a journalist arrives for an interview more important that he knows. He has been sent to uncover the event now known as `The Forgetting' but is, in fact, the mysterious disconnect of everyone in the world from his or her previous life. Though the journalist is following a lead, the powerful stranger he meets is the only one who can - and will - finally tell all.

The interplay of polar opposition underlies this story at every turn: the perverse cherubs and `lurks'; the rise or fall from grace; passion and materialism; and dark and light, to name just a few. The novel is an exploration in mirror opposition that is mysterious, poetic, and even playful. It is verbal burlesque; as each passage reveals more of the story, new layers are exposed that are exquisitely tempting.

The story is fast-paced and well conceived. Amidst a multitude of players and symbolic elements, Samuelle weaves a stylish account with complete control, even as the reader writhes with anticipation to see each piece find its place. The main characters, Charles and Dormius, are authentic and their loyal friendship is rendered with skill and insight. A few secondary characters are done well but are less distinct as the author's voice overpowers them somewhat. This is easily forgiven, however, as Samuelle writes with vivid and often poetic imagery. If occasionally (rarely) his simile is a little heavy-handed, it is also richly descriptive and entirely commanding.

Format: Paperback
This is very philosophical book outlining the journey of two friends, Dormius and Charles, although Charles is clearly the focal point of the book. Both men are artists, and as they say great pain breeds great art. Charles is in love with a woman named Mira, who is brutally raped and as a result of that assault loses her mind. This drives Charles into himself more than ever before.

Of course there is more to the story than that. Both Charles and Dormius are both gifted, Charles with the ability to see the universe both past and future, and Dormius is able to look into peoples minds. A man with Charles's talent and the kind of pain that he was in after what happened to Mira ends up being a recipe for the extreme.

I don't want to go into a lot of detail about the path that Charles ends up on, mainly because it would give away to much about the ending, and it would rob you as the reader from going on the journey of discovery that Samuelle takes you on to explain what has occurred. What I will say is the Charles spends a lot of his time exploring what makes the world what it is, and that his journey ends up being more of a philosophical journey for the reader.

I myself, tend not to enjoy books that get overly complicated, or that are hard to follow. This book had moments of being hard to follow, but I think that was intentional by the author, the confusion I felt as a reader was parallel to the confusion that Charles was going through, and when Charles made revelations so did I.

Samuelle has a lot to say about the world, and offers a lot of commentary to a wide range of topics, the greed of humans, organized religion, and so much more. Ever though Samuelle has a lot to say, it never comes off as preachy.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. The book is more philosophical than what I would normally read, but the author writes in such a fluid way that it was easy to follow and enjoy.

A journalist is sent on an unusual errand, to interview someone who may be able to explain "The Forgetting." The Forgetting is a disruption between peoples' lives that causes them to forget about their previous lives. The book takes off from here, following two immortal men who both aim to change the fate of the universe.

The characters are very interesting to get to know. Each has something different or quirky to offer the reader. Every character has a sense of deliberation, purpose about him/her. The author obviously chooses his words carefully; the book seeks to educate the reader, if anything, not influence. The book was not too difficult to understand or follow, the reader will enjoy the lighter parts as well as the heavier. This book will take the reader to a different level of thinking if the reader allows it, not your everyday book. Adult readers would enjoy this novel.

"There are worlds where passion means more than action. There are places where time has no meaning, and anything is possible. When a heart-broken sculptor seeks them out, existence itself may crumble under the weight of his pain."

magnificent- brilliantly written literary novel. A true work of art as well as literature. A MUST READ
