Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

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.

Web Site:

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