'Thomas Weaver' is a tale of the fantastic -- or is it? None of us really knows what happens to us when we die. It's not a spoiler to reveal this much, as it's in the book description on this very site, but as the book begins, Thomas Weaver is a 55-year-old man in a dead end job, living a miserable life. After coming to the end of his proverbial rope, he takes his own life...
...and wakes up at the age of fifteen, with the chance to correct some things that went badly in his life the first time around.
I believe that you will enjoy 'Thomas Weaver' every bit as much as I did.
I'm an avid fan of Shawn Inmon, this book is a prime example of why. It keeps your interest from the very beginning.
You slowly come to care about the characters, and what's going to happen to them. This is a story where a typical middle age man, who suffered a terrible tragedy, finally comes to the point where he's going to end it all.....suddenly he wakes up in the past, in his teenage body, but with all the memories of his adult life carried over....he has a chance to change the terrible disaster that brought him to this point in life.
Shawn is excellent in setting a scene, you can hear the music, feel the characters emotions, and as the story unfolds the characters develop more with each page.
There are no dull moments here, this is not a book where you can figure out how it's going to end, the author keep you guessing to the last page. I like that in a book.
It's a trip into the past. A tad bit of sci fi, mystery, suspense, nostalgia and good fun reading.
Thank you Shawn for another good read.
Meanwhile, it'll go back into my Library, filed away on some back electronic shelf, where someday it will call out to be read once more. For reading these books actually keeps their stories alive. Maybe, perhaps; it is an unusual book you know....
This is a story of blunders and sorrow followed by an improbable solution. We all have this thought at times: 'What if I could relive this and put it right?' - the protagonist of this book got just this opportunity. Can he turn everything for the better, or is life a bit more complicated than a fairy tale? Shawn Inmon weaves the threads so realistically that the reader tends to forget the impossibility of it all. A lovely, lively read, that keeps you awake till the wee hours. Loved it. Thumbs up is a minimum this time!
It was very easy to visualize the times,and was fun to remember a few blasts from the pasts. I found myself saying "oh yeah. I remember that, I forgot about that" Shawn Inmon lives in nostalgia and remembers it well and I love it. Can't wait for the next book about that "creep" at least this time i'll be prepared.
It kept me guessing and intrigued to the last page. I very happily recommend this book and am pleased that I came upon it. Happy reading!
