Soon after 16 year old Atlas buys a motorcycle, a mysterious fog takes him on an unexpected journey through a series of strange worlds, inhabited by nine sages. They take him on a walk over an endless spiral, sailing with a demigod, tinkering with the worlds greatest inventors, racing a white buffalo, and more, all while sharing lessons about life, death, power, faith, sacrifice, and everything in between. Each experience brings him closer to a greater understanding of himself and the world around him.

Each Sage is inspired by a personal hero of the author. Can you guess who's who?

5.0 out of 5 stars A collection of allegorical dimensions! May 16, 2013
Apart from idle curiosity (the author suggested via Twitter that I ought to read it), I had no expectations when I embarked on reading this book. Graphically described locales, a strong central character and range of (nine) situations take the reader on an Odyssey through the individual's existential route of self discovery. Yes it does deal in myth, legend, spiritualism et al but it does not preach. Instead it sets out a perspective on ones own values and morales, independent of religion or race.
Innovatively structured; it's not too long, not too short. It's well written and crucially (for me in any event) well edited. Probably make a reasonable basis for a movie. I wish Mr Webb Johnson well...

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking December 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a thought-provoking book that takes you on an unexpected adventure. I really could not predict what each chapter would bring, and I enjoyed the journey. Took me back to my English Lit days where you had to really think about what you were reading. Definitely enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars New favorite December 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a 29 year old male and a friend recommended this to me as a fun, thought-provoking read. I started, and couldn't stop until it had finished. The main character Atlas was very well written, and I could identify parts of myself in him easily. Each of the "Sages" he meets are clever and work into the story nicely. Without spoiling anything, the inventor sages were by far my favorite, representing some of my favorite inspirations throughout time. I highly recommend this book if you're a young soul in search of some guidance, or perhaps even more-so an intelligent person who enjoys the concept of questioning purpose and drive. Most of all, it was just plain fun to read and can't wait for more from this author.
