This, the author's first book, has been highly anticipated in certain circles, and finally reading it was surprisingly enjoyable. I had not expected to be so moved.

Henry Miller's work comes to mind as a comparison, but where Miller's work is full of ego and conspicuous demonstrations of intellect, Mr. Rheaume's book conveys true humility. Miller touts his faults and sins like badges, as if to shock us or make us envious. Rheaume simply opens the door to his musty cellar of faults simply to show they're there, and that he has nothing to hide. There are no flashing lights or carnival music making a big deal of the dark side of his humanity. The drugs, extra-terrestrials, death and ghosts in this book are simply part of his life as he makes his way to clean Light.

Like Miller, Mr. Rheaume displays a knack for knocking one down with lines of unexpected insight about life that seem to come out of nowhere, and which causes one to want more:

"Throughout life there are only a few significant days that provide purpose enough to make all the others worthwhile...."

"Some of my favorite people in the world were there with me, but I can't ascertain that those relationships would have bloomed and wilted as they did without the prominent factor, addiction. They say not to stare into an eclipse because it can cause blindness, but how could one ever witness the magnificence without looking with one's very own eyes. The precious moments of life cannot be neglected simply to avoid risk."

This book is full of darkness. But it is never depressing. The author has an eye for beauty, even in the midst of death and garbage, and it hints of hope. It hints of sunshine. It is inspiring.

"He always has to be so cynical.

This is an epic tale of a young mans struggle between himself, the world, temptation, and addiction. It brings to life the feelings and surroundings of the author. It drags you in as though you were living right along side him and, before you know it, you feel as though you have an intimate relationship with author and his counterparts. This book is an insightful and informational view of inner city living and the meer struggles sine have to live day to day. A great read. I read it straight through without taking any breaks. The way it is written is comparable to a Tarentino movie, not necessarily in chronological order, and when switching stories leaves you begging for more, only to be unfolded later on in the book. Great book from beginning to end.

"The world is a cemetery of hopes." Poetic prose in the midst of the description of love, hate, life, drugs, death and the sounds of words that outshine the plot and characters... I loved this unusual work of creative writing.
It did not matter who was writing in first person and who was trying to put the whole story together, who the living was and who the departed.
Yes, the shores we walk can also be walked by Bantam chickens without leaving their mark.

Realistic book written about the trials and tribulations one deals with when losing the ones we love in life. It's a fantastic read about how it feels dealing with the constant sting of the pain of losing someone and doing whatever it takes to make that pain disappear. This book is about love. It's about drugs. It's about hard times that so many people face. It's real. But in the end we must always know that there is a brighter day. I love the way the writer wraps it up in the end by finally finding hope and finding a way to move forward. The writer is unique and gives the reader an opportunity to look into their own experiences and relate to the message the author is sending on their own level..much like Shakespeare's writings etc. The Shores We Walk is a must read!

This a dark tale by a troubled man. His writing is very good. I was relieved that he did not blame his parents for his addiction. I thought using his father's poetry was a power tool. If he can escape his deamons Mr. Rheaume has a bright literary future.

This book can be compare to a sumptuous banquet of life. It is a tasty story wrapped in the pastry of prose. It has the sweet and sour chapters of life, told with heartbreaking honesty. Nothing added, nothing detracted, seasoned just right. Through a story done in an unusual style, you will get a look into the descent of addiction and the struggle to overcome it.
