I enjoy a good psychological thriller…
Shutter Island. Jacob’s Ladder. The Girl on the Train. Before I Go To Sleep.
In a psychological thriller, characters battle with their own mind.
They haunt me more than a little, because we don’t get to pick whether mental illness will sneak up on us some random day we didn’t see coming.
While I’m reading, a little voice whispers; “this actually happens to people…”
I just read a book titled Falling Back to Earth…
Amazingly enough, I found the writer right here on Medium, and enjoyed her book enough to write this review. Couple of things about the book…
- I couldn’t put it down. Every time I thought I knew where it was going, I was wrong. It’s a page turner, and crazy hard to put down. Which explains why I finished the book at 2:30 am.
- It made me a little unsettled about how the human mind actually works. It kind of stuck with me for a while. Sorry I can’t say more, but I don’t want to give away any spoilers. If you read it, bet you won’t see the end coming.
Curious? Here’s a snippet from Amazon. (the preview on Amazon is longer)
The book and the author…
If you liked the preview above, the Kindle version is under $3 right now, and it’s in paperback, too. FYI, there’s not very many reviews on Amazon, but they’re all 5-star and well-earned.
If you loved books like The Girl on the Train or Before I Go To Sleep, go buy it.
It won’t disappoint.
I quite enjoyed this book, and love that I discovered J.A. through Medium.
I’ve just ordered another one of her books.
On fellow creatives and why I wrote this post…
A lot of us at Medium are creatives. Writers, authors, artists, cartoonists, designers, photographers, etc. We come here and write, in hopes people will read, like, share, and in the process, help us grow. Too often, we don’t do the same for others.
So this is me, proudly and loudly lauding the work of a Medium Creative.
Thank you, J.A. Carter Winward — you can count me among your fans. :)
Side note — no, I’m not an Amazon affiliate and no, I don’t earn anything for recommending this book.
