I heard about this because it was on sale through someone on Twitter. Figured I would take a chance. It was a fast read. Finished it in basically one sitting.
A psychological tale. I felt like this was a nonfiction memoir type book. Jacob came to life in the pages. His self destructive behavior triggered many events.
This is one of those books that leaves you breathless asking "what the heck just happened?" I gave this three out of five stars. The story line got stuck a couple of places and it could have used another Proofreading. I would recommend this book though.
I can not wait to see what this author comes up with next!!
I would call Dream Brother a psychological thriller. The story is full of suspense, which kept me engaged from beginning to end. Without giving away the ending, I must say it was totally unpredictable. Brian Marggraf mastered the skill of storytelling while dealing with complicated issues involving the inner workings of the brain. I appreciated taking the journey with Jacob through his drug induced mania.
Contrary to what was said in a previous review, there are a couple of typos and the formatting slips in a couple of places, but the storytelling is strong enough to maintain the interest and overlook such things. On the subject of formatting, there are intentional breaks from the traditional layout, which are used well, and they add pace and focus to the tale.
As a Brit', I've only been to New York in the US, but this was a tantalising glimpse of what the west coast has to offer. Great imagery throughout whether it concerned indoor or outdoor scenes. Dialogue was natural and descriptive which I enjoyed immensely.
In summary, I'm pleased to see such a well written story from a fellow indie writer/publisher. I've discovered a few bad examples in recent times, but Brian Marggraf has re-instilled my confidence. Superb denouement Brian.
