About the Author

Cristian Mihai (born 25 December 1990) grew up in Constanta, Romania. And he's still growing up, or at least trying to. Sometimes he writes. Sometimes he gets lucky and writes something good. He can't, however, draw a straight line. No matter how much he tries. Not even with a ruler. And, please, don't ever ask him to sing.

Very well done and a pleasure to read.
just me
This is a book I will read again, many times I think, because it asks questions we all need to be fearless in answering.

This book was very unexpected. It made me think about what is means to be a writer, what the process of creation means not only to the creator but to those who are affected by what has been written. Much of what Mihai says here will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to put words on paper.

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.

If I were to tell you that "The Writer" is a great book, it wouldn't say much. But if I said that the main character has both a weak and compelling voice, which you just can't stop listening (reading) to. It seems (to me) that his voice is intermingled with that of the author Cristian Mihai and that just makes it even more interesting.

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 found it boring and dry. I could only read less than half of it. Perhaps if I had read more it might have become interesting.
