Sinossi

Murder haunts The Haven, celebrity James Canning's home since he lost touch with Reality TV. What's his "shrink" to do? Assign writing therapy, of course. But when the good doc reads Canning's memoire, Hyperlink from Hell, he checks into his own padded suite and Canning disappears.
To save the doc from madness, The Haven's new director must analyze the hell out of Hyperlink from Hell. Is Canning's tale of kidnapping, time travel and wardrobe malfunction fact or fiction, deceit or delusion? Can she solve the murders, save her boss and find Canning? Or will she need a padded suite of her own?  

L'autore

Lindy Moone comes from a short line of mental health professionals and now lives far, far away from them: someplace warm and sometimes rainy, near the sea, where she can play with her pencils as much as she likes. She is married, to “The Great Fisherman Boo.” Lindy likes dogs, cats, TV and thunderstorms—but not at the same time, because it hurts. Some say she is a pathological liar. She denies this. Lindy is, however, a pathological blogger, at Belly-Up! (lindymoone.wordpress.com), and can be contacted via Twitter (@LindyMoone), on her facebook page (Lindy Moone, author), and through her in(s)ane website, Literary Subversions (lindymoone.com). It’s a veritable loony bin of wordplay, silly pictures, trivia about the book, and more. Please stop by, especially if you know an easy way to get cats to take worm medicine.

5.0 su 5 stelle Pilgrimage to Awesome 22 agosto 2013
Di Lord Jeffrey of Starbucky - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Words can't express how I feel about this book, but pantomimes would be worse, so I'll give it a try. Simply put, Lindy Moone's book is a masterpiece in the rare and subtle art of OMFG! I spilled so much water, coffee and Diet Coke reading this I should have gotten the paperback instead of the eBook version. Lindy Moone's writing style reminds me of Douglas Adams without that whole British thing going on--easily as funny, if not more clever. Also, Moone's book is an out-and-out mystery, with intrigue, characters you care about and want good things to happen to. It's one of those books that, if they ever made it into a movie, forums all over the Internet would go up in flames over who was going to play Jenny, Monique and Jimmie. The dog will be easy to cast - but no spoilers (heh).

Ok, time to go refill my drink (again!).

5.0 su 5 stelle A mystery for readers with open, analytical minds! 15 dicembre 2012
Di CArol Ervin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Hyperlink from Hell is witty, complex, profane, inane and insane. Its author, Lindy Moone, gives fair warning of this on its title page:
"Caution: In(s)ane Mystery ahead. If you have any sense, or sensibilities, this senseless novel will surely offend some or all of them. Just put the book down, and back away. (Now)." The quotes are mine.
This book is for readers who crave something truly original.
It has two narrators. The first is female, the acting director of The Haven, an insane asylum. Already you may guess where this is going, though I didn't. The second narrator is an inmate who's gone missing, Jimmie Canning, a former TV reality show star. Jimmie has left behind a first-person account of his activities since his disappearance/murder. He's left this document, "Hyperlink from Hell" in the possession of Al, the former director of the asylum.
In his autobiographical account, Jimmie does not understand what's happening to him, and the reader doesn't either. But hey, maybe this is what insanity feels like (or reality, to some). I'd nearly finished the book before I realized who Al and Jimmie represent. Both are crazy.
Jimmie's narrative is chock full of altered references to television characters and shows, plus Shakespearean allusions and potty jokes. I kept thinking of "a tale told by an idiot" (Macbeth). Because the characters are lovable, the story never feels dark nor the satire harsh.
Hyperlink from Hell could become a cult classic. It's substantial enough, and poses abundant questions for analysis in college literature classes. I envision term papers, theses, dissertations, bull-sessions. In a few places, a "banned book," because some will take offense.
My experience: In the beginning, I kept wanting more of the first narrator-- the sane one--and a traditional-type story. That desire, too, may be part of the message. We want the universe to make sense. I skimmed some of the manic scenes (the book is long) and grew a little tired of farce, but by the end, I loved how the author puzzled the pieces together, and I was ready to read again from the beginning.
Contemporary fiction seldom presents such a challenge, or such fine writing. Kudos, Lindy Moone!

HYPERLINK is a seriously addictive and twisted novel. This book works on lots of levels, but you don't need an analytical mind to laugh your ass off. I think it emits endorphins!

5.0 su 5 stelle A wild, whacky, wonderful adventure! 11 ottobre 2012
Di Tobias D. Robison - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Can the hero of this brilliantly written book prevent a murder that happened barely one year ago? And why does "Al" keep changing his universe? The author takes us through a kaleidoscopic adventure of plots, subplots and deft media references, while we try to make sense of it all. Time travel to the present (rather than the past and the future) is sooo tricky, especially when one's footgear keeps metamorphosing. The footnotes made me laugh while I was trying to keep all the Jennies straight.

I heartily recommend this book. It's a rare treat that you can read more than once. The jokes will be just as fresh the second time, and when you know where the plot is going, you'll enjoy being puzzed and confusled in entirely new ways.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful book! 2 novembre 2012
Di Richard R. R. Ruane - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
This is a great book! It's an exceedingly fun read that moves its interesting cast of characters through a series of (often very funny) situations as the mysteries around them deepen. The author acknowledges that she has a crush on Neil Gaiman and that one of her favorite books is Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". Her writing in this book is more reminiscent of Douglas Adams than Neil Gaiman (except for some of Neil's less dark stories like "How to Pick Up Girls") but I was also reminded a little of some of Daniel Pinkwater's best novels (though this author does acknowledge the existence of sex) and even a little of Terry Pratchett (especially with the use of footnotes/hyperlinks). It's an excellent first novel! Well worth checking out.
