I will buy the paperback now to add this book to my library at home.
This has been sitting on my tbr forever. I figured I was never going to read it so decided to pick up the audio. Glad I did. Adam writes a very good debut novel and the narrator did a fantastic job of breathing life into the main character. Maybe a wee long winded and repetitive in spots, it was nonetheless an engaging tale of loss, love, redemption and justice. Solid first effort.
I just need to mention that while I liked the character "Ian" I couldn't stand his wife Alina and thought that she was the epitome of stupid. The character thought that it was fine to let a 5 year old practice walk to school alone? I liked her for the most part until I read that.
Ian's inability to deal with the loss of his son is costing him his wife, his job and his health. His grief is so profound that he grasps at anything -- a Ouija board, for example -- to seek the answers he feels his murdered 5-year-old son is trying to ask him from the grave. His anger at not understanding why he "sees" his son becomes dangerous, especially to himself. His visions begin to include the murderer, who was shot and killed in a tussle with Alex.
Is Ian off his rocker? Or is it possible that things we don't understand can lead us places that can change lives, though the thought of these events seem nutty? Adam Nicolai has written a book that leaves readers with a satisfying, if not haunting, ending.
"Alex" would be tough reading for parents of a murdered child, yet there's hope in the conclusion. I kept trying to stop put this book side to get some things done, but instead, read it in one sitting. I had to know if Ian was insane ... something not revealed until late in the book.
It was a pleasure to read a well-edited e-book. A scene with Ian's mother was unnecessary, and how he managed to keep his job as a stretch. Still, this is an interesting look at the pain and mystery that surrounds a murdered child. It will make you think.
Kudos to Nicolai for producing a novel that will haunt readers, yet is able remind us all that things are not always as bad as they seem.
Eric misses his five-year-old son, kidnapped and killed by a maniac. But it's hard to miss someone when they don't go away! Alex keeps popping up at the most inopportune moments, talking to his daddy as if nothing ever happened. How can Eric sort fantasy from reality? Will he be able to do it in time to keep his wife, his friends, his job and his sanity? Is this ghost-Alex - and his ghost -murderer - trying to tell Eric something, and if so, what is he supposed to do about it? The answers to those questions will lead Eric on a journey he's not prepared for, to a goal he can't even imagine ...
I would recommend this novel to anyone who's tough enough to take it. It won't be an easy road - I had to take a break from it about halfway through myself - but in the end, like real life, it'll be worth it.
