Editorial Reviews

Review

Davis has a knack for re-created dialogue...and for alternately blunt and jarring chapter-opening lines. [A] well-crafted debut memoir...there's remarkable thematic unity here rather than a misguided drive for comprehensiveness that one often finds in memoirs. - Kirkus Reviews

My Father's Son begins with a figurative bang. Davis whets the reader's appetite...[and] captures the reader's attention with his bold first sentence and doesn't let go again until the final word. - US Review of Books, First Chapter Reviews

A vividly candid, deftly crafted, intensely personal, and raptly compelling read from beginning to end. - Midwest Book Review

[B]y far one of the most engaging, entertaining books I've read in a long time!  The author pulls us in to the story right from the beginning pages.  A memorable read and a keeper for sure. Would love to read more from John Davis someday.Sam Ryan- Barnes & Noble reviewer
                                                                                                                                       
[W]ell written...I couldn't put it down.  I feel like even just reading this book affected me profoundly. And don't you think those are the best kind of books? - Ms. Nose in a Book (book blogger)

[O]ne of the most interesting and addicting memoirs I've read. The writing was stellar. The strong word choice and fluid prose makes it a very easy book to sink into and get lost [in], and John's writing style is so natural and authentic - really pulls [you] right in.- Jenna Brewster - Indie Book Reviewers
                                                                                          
From the beginning Davis grabbed my attention. When he dropped a bombshell in the second part of the book, there was no putting the book down. - Jessyca Garcia- Reader's Favorite
 
There is a lot of life and drama in these pages, and John Davis is such a great storyteller. A quick read that I finished in the course of a night, and I enjoyed every page... even the "harsher" ones. Recommend. 5 stars. - Claire Middleton- Goodreads reviewer

My Father's Son is at once heartbreaking and uplifting with a dramatic climax that you'll never see coming. In the second half the book goes from merely riveting to completely jaw-dropping. I read the book in one sitting, glued to the pages of Davis' amazing story. Do yourself a favor: read this book, and read it without knowing the full synopsis going in, so you find out the truth along with Davis himself.  -SPR Book Review, 4½ Stars

About the Author
