Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Healer by Antti Tuomainen

This was a book that seemed to feature despair.  It is a dystopian future where environmental impact is ruling the world.   The world is changing for the worse.  Tapani’s wife goes missing and his quest to find her is the focus of the book.

The frustration of Tapani’s search is almost felt palatably.  The author does a good job describing the feelings of the characters.   The plot has some plausibility without pontificating on the causes of the world’s problems.  

Radical environmentalists and crass opportunists populate the sub-characters.  The book flows but not rapidly.   It didn’t captivate me but it does provide some thought provoking situations.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
