Gratifying to Connect with Reader Who Gets It; 12th Five-Star Review for Crazy About You

It is so gratifying to connect with a reader who really gets it. I so appreciate him posting this review, which is the 12th five-star review for Crazy About You.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIVING WITH THE SANE AND INSANE . . .February 15, 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Crazy About You (Paperback)
CRAZY ABOUT YOU is the second book by Randy Attwood I have read, and my admiration for his writing skills grows with each page as I read. This story takes the reader for a trip into the strange space between the sane and insane--a mist-blurred world full of angst, mystery, surprises, plus bizarre and unpredictable behavior . . . with an array of characters that are so well developed your heart reaches out to them. Well, most of them . . . but there is much more. An evil presence drives the story into even darker places that you do not expect, at a pace that turns the pages as fast as you can read. This is an engaging and compelling coming of age tale that will haunt the reader for days . . . and leave you wishing for more. Yet, it is also satisfying and fully resolved in a way that touches your heart. The main character, Brad, living in the early 1960s world of a Kansas mental institution ponders at one moment--"You can't summarize what you are, only what you've done, which is why so many of us feel so empty--what we've done is never even close to what we are." Well, based on what Randy Attwood has done, I can summarize that he is a great author with a unique gift and exceptional talent for story telling. You will agree.
