Brian Thompson's THE ANARCHISTS Reminds Us That Not All Of The Past Is Bad
on July 21, 2012
We all know what it's like to not have things go the way we want them to. For some it can be their efforts to achieve something great. For others it is trying to take what we see as our rightful place in a position. In author Brian Thompson's new book THE ANARCHISTS we are able to see exactly what happens when things don't go as planned and you get an opportunity to seemingly wipe the slate clean.
Through what is the "Begin Again" project, everyday individuals Harper, Damario, Quinne and Teanna are given a chance to take back one event from their lives. What the reader is able to know is that this is all made possible due to something supernatural--and not necessarily in a good way.
What will they do and how will it have an effect on others? This is the question they must ponder and the one that Thompson gives us all to reflect on through his book.
I had the opportunity to interview the author after the official release of THE ANARCHISTS, and what struck me then and now as I write this review is how all of us in a sense or guilty of going against the grain, doing something other than what might be seen as expected. What we have to consider just as the characters that the author creates does is how will our decision change the course of our lives and that of those around us.
Building on his ability to take themes from the Bible and create his own cast of characters and situations, author Brian Thompson has delivered what I believe is a well-written journey into the walking contradiction that is humanity. No matter what genre you're used to reading, this is one you'll find something in it that you will enjoy.
