Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious, but whose directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might lead to authenticity and perhaps, redemption.
The adventure draws Tony into deep relational entanglements where he is able to 'see' through the literal eyes and experiences of others, but is "blind" to the consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma?
- Absolutely amazing story! LOVE Roger Mueller’s narration too. A++++++++
Really love, love this book! I’ve listened to it over and over. You want kill the lead character. Then, things change! It got me laughing, then sad and warm and laughing. Paul Young is an amazing writer, very well written and expression of his thoughts/story. What if... Really enjoyed and will again and again. Anyone I share it with gets drawn in right away, you may too! Don’t want to spoil anything, just read/listen for yourself, you may enjoy as a much as I did!
- LOVED this book & Roger Mueller as narrator is EXCELLENT!!
I enjoy Young’s books. This one is AMAZING!! I was looking for books narrated by Roger Mueller, as he narrated a couple other books I’ve listened to, like The Shack & Jayber Crowe.
When I started reading this book, Young introduces the main character, Tony. I really disliked him and wanted to see him stopped from his awful doings. As the story progresses, Young causes the reader to be drawn into the journey Tony goes on. Wow, what a journey and others he meets on the way!! At times I laughed outloud as I listened to the book alone. Young really takes you on an up & down of emotions and thought provoking scenarios. At the end I was sad it was finished and wished the book went on! GET IT & enjoy listening!
