This was an uncomfortable book to read in some ways, because it exposes the soul of the character in ways that asks the reader to also look into their own soul as well. I can't remember the last time I read a book with this much depth into waters most of us would prefer not to delve into and would hesitate to expose. But Mihai was fearless with the visions he gave us into his narrator's psyche.
The prose was powerful and thought provoking. This is a book I will read again, many times I think, because it asks questions we all need to be fearless in answering.
The story of Jonathan Fisher is that of a lone wolf writing his way through life. He sees himself as nothing but an observer, only to find out that his writing is much more alive than anything he would've dreamed of.
This is by far one of the best books I've read this year. Mihai's prose is both a delight to read and an easy read as well. I'm very much against writers that go in excess with their literary license to a point where it seems absurd describing a tree bark with 30 different adjectives, this is not the case. Cristian Mihai writes with passion, but with carefully chosen words in a way that you dive in, you enjoy and appropriate the story without ever having to go back.
"I opened my eyes one morning, and they hurt not because of the bright sunlight, but simply because there's always something painful when darkness dies in the morning, when a new day, a day I've already given up on, has begun."
"Stories, the wastebasket where we throw our miseries and suffering.
Without them, we would have no dreams. If we wouldn't need stories the world would be perfect. Or just empty.
"I forgive you son." he whispered his voice sending ripples across time and space, across reality and dreams, death and life, and Paul Fisher, my father, grabbed my hand."
