I absolutely HATE giving negative reviews! I'm aware how important positive reviews are to an e-book writer...he/she lives and dies by them. That being said when I read this paragraph: "Phil, tall and athletically slender, is leaning against the foot rail, a strange smile tugging at the corner of his mouth. VIOLET, wide-set eyes that should be filled with compassion instead send a momentary chill slithering down her spine." Notice that it said VIOLET. And then just four short taps to turn the 'pages' later I read this paragraph: "She finds his OCEAN-BLUE eyes with hers. Despite a smile, they seem somehow cold, without real compassion. A corner of his mouth twitches up, almost a grin, as he pats her hand." OCEAN-BLUE??? Wasn't I just told four short 'pages' ago that they were VIOLET? And who in real life has EVER seen violet eyes. That color was usually reserved for the bare breasted women of those 'bodice ripper' novels I read as a young woman.

I actually went back twice to make sure I hadn't mistaken the word violent for violet! Maybe the author realized that purple eyes wouldn't fly, especially on a man, and changed them to ocean-blue. Change your mind, change the description. There were other less glaring grammatical errors at the beginning of the book but nothing this obvious. I've been reading a very, very long time and I used to force myself to finish a book that I'd started. I'm at the stage of my life when I realize that each moment has value and that continuing to read a book that has annoyed me in the first few chapters would be a huge waste of my time.

Okay...I admit I'm being a nitpicker here but honestly little inconsistencies like this bug the holy heck out of me. This is why I don't understand the number of 5 star reviews.

George Bernstein has really done a wonderful job with his novel, "Trapped." Imagine if you went in for routine surgery and were trapped in a coma - seemingly unresponsive, but in fact you were fully aware of what was going on around you. Imagine that you find you also have "awoken" with a psychic ability to KNOW how others are feeling. Imagine if you determined that your "accident" was no accident! "Trapped" is a wonderful, gripping thriller that grabs the reader's attention from the first page and refuses to let go.

When I had the opportunity to read A 3rd Time to Die (review coming soon) and saw Trapped, also by this first-time author for me, I decided I wanted to read it first...Wow! The concept is based upon the "Locked in Syndrome" which affects the Neocortex of our brains. Jackee Maren was hurt in a car accident; this was the result.

But the accident was questionable and it was believed by some that it had been the first attempt on her life... Readers will quickly believe this, given the way he treats his wife--who was now completely paralyzed, except for her eyes...

Jackee's father had recently died and when his will was read, all of the money had been placed in trust for his daughter and grandsons. Phil had been furious he had not received a separate amount... That apparently started him thinking of alternatives--how could he gain control of the money!?!

Phil had no desire to work with his wife as she now was--with Jackee realizing that she had never really been physically comfortable with him, especially with their intimate life--a massage therapist and a nurse were added to the home live-in staff.

Before long, he added a live-in governess, who just happened to be his present secretary... Of course, everybody surmised that his secretary was already Phil's mistress...

In the meantime, Kevin has taught her to talk via eye blinking. In addition, though, he is able to teach her Morris Code and other shortcuts, so that they are routinely talking. Her two boys learn this as well, but soon she begins to realize that they hear her even when out of the room... She had been practicing after one day when Phil had started making out with Rhonda right there in the Den, as she sat looking out the window.

Warning: Spoilers below.

It is apparent that this is the author's first book. The plot was mostly clever, the main characters quite likeable (which kept me reading), and I cared about them.

Mr. Bernstein's descriptions are good, and he does a nice job of describing what a character is feeling to the point of emotional involvement. This is key to good story-telling.

I do have some constructive criticism to impart. One of the first things that jarred me was the constant use of jewels or minerals to describe the characters' eye color. Yeah, I got that Jackee had emeral green eyes, I don't need to be beat over the head with it. Using topaz and sapphire, even malachite was too much. (I've seen people with emerald green eyes, but malachite? I don't think so.) In any case, too much description of that. Find a different way to describe them, always resorting to the same thing gets old.

Use of present tense is okay, but there were a few laspes to past tense when there should not have been.

Writing someone with a dialect can be difficult to do without over-doing it as it was done in this book. You only need to pepper it in if someone says "ya" instead of "you." Even someone with a southern dialect will actually say "you" some of the time. This got to be sooo distracting. I think Mr. Bernstein needs to listen to some southern dialect before he attempts to write it again. And even so, a light touch is much better for the reader. (There was also some annoying southern stereotyping in there to do with Rhonda's and Kevin's families.)

The last thing with writing technique I have to criticize is his used of "blonde" and "redhead" to describe the women. (So obvious this was written by a man.
