Therapy 25 giugno 2013
Di Shannon - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
While it is the character Stephen you meet in therapy you will find yourself pondering how you think and feel. Adolescence passed me by years ago and so I thought passed were the days of playing a role for others as to how they perceive me, ha. Yes from the title and the cover this book address the big picture but takes the story closer to personal relationships and how we interact with one another. Be prepared for a treat as you get to experience the pleasures both heaven, hell, and the planet in between have to offer.

As a reader of traditionally long descriptive fiction it is also a different experience to read dialog. At the same time it does enable to reader to stay in your own mind verses thinking through one characters eyes.

Definitely looking forward to what develops in the second book!

Thought-provoking page-turner 3 giugno 2013
Di Aubergine - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
In this intriguing story, a young man from Long Island trying to come to terms with his religious background meets with a therapist to deal with some typical inner demons. Although much of the story is presented in the form of a conversation between the main character, Stephen, and his therapist, this is not a tale of psychotherapy. The conversational technique allows the reader to learn some fundamental facts about Stephen and his motivations in an entertaining way without any sense of having detoured into a backstory.

Each chapter of the novel is prefaced by a relevant quote from the likes of C.S. Lewis, Mahatma Gandhi, Saint Augustine, and even Mark Twain. The dialogue and narrative coalesce around each of these ideas to move the story along from one surprising encounter to the next. Along the way, the conversations between Stephen and his therapist - and others who enter the story - reveal some remarkable spiritual insights.

Without spilling any spoilers, the story presents some perspectives on Heaven, hell, God, angels, demons and humans that some readers may find questionable, controversial, or ridiculous. Others may find them plausible, rational, or even realistic. Personally I found a lot to think about (did I mention the book was thought-provoking?), and I very much look forward to the sequel.

So why only four stars? It’s a rather nitpicky and perhaps silly reason: while the conversational writing style is very accessible, in the early chapters I was distracted by the lack of commas between clauses. I probably overuse commas myself, but I like the way they organize sentences in my brain as I read or write. I kept wanting to get out a pencil and mark up the first few chapters. That said, it did not take me long to become so engrossed in the story that I forgot about the punctuation. Of course, anyone who has actually tried to write dialogue knows it’s much more difficult than it looks, and Sean Patrick Brennan actually does it quite well. The conversation would transpose nicely into a graphic novel or a screenplay (and I wouldn’t mind seeing what some of these characters look like).

Sharing a few thoughts -- Heaven, Hell, and the Planet In Between 31 luglio 2013
Di zannemcz - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Well,to say that this book would probably not be found on my "to do"reading list is probably an understatement. But, why not try something really different, I thought. Starting out I wondered --Just what the heck am I reading here ? But by the end, I was looking for the next page. Yes, I will be reading the second book, and no doubt, the third as well. The book has lots of philosophical thought sprinkled with humor and plot. You may agree with a particular thought, and feel the author has a point here, or disagree, thinking, Nah, I can't buy that because ---. In either case, you have engaged your brain cells. And, after all, isn't that a great thing. Although it took me a while to find my way, I really ended up wanting to know more, and wondering just how the story would unfold. So, if you want to read something different, want to meet some unusual characters, want a good laugh or two, or just want to think a little, pick up a copy of Heaven, Hell, an the Planet In Between by Sean Patrick Brennan today.

Brilliant writing 29 dicembre 2013
Di Lex Samu - jazz musician - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Sean is a brilliant writer..The subject matter is engrossing and although I don't subscribe to any particular spiritual belief, I found many truths in the book that I resonated with and eagerly await the next book in the series..Sometimes, with all the spiritual/metaphysical style books I have read, they tend to make me lose interest at times because of the writing style..not so with this one. Reads like a very well written adventure story.

A Fun Roller Coaster Ride Through Hell and Back 10 aprile 2014
Di Michael - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I was a little hesitant to pick up a book called "Heaven, Hell and the Planet in Between" because although I am spiritual, I'm not religious and I don't believe in Heaven or Hell, per se. I'm sure glad I decided to buy it. I suspended my disbelief, as all fiction requires the reader to do, and allowed William, Stephen, the over-the-top Freddie and the rest of the characters to create a world where Heaven and Hell are in a tug-of-war and sometimes the fate of of a human, or humankind itself is in jeopardy. Fun stuff. I cant wait to read the sequel.
