My most precious and awesome friend's book is finished. It is over at Amazon. Now you can get it on a Kindle (ugh), which you can't caress...too cold. Or a paperback version yay, which you can caress...smell the pages. You get the pic.
Davin Malasarn writes with passion and emotion. This book is filled with seventeen short stories. All of which made me wonder, made me connect with the characters. Davin's characters are real, they are enthralling, and seem to come alive inside the pages, so much so, it felt like I could reach out and touch them. I have read Red Man, Blue Man before and loved it, so I was thrilled to see it was included in this book. But there is much more. The Wild Grass is a heart wrenching tale of a woman's loss. As I read it, my heart cried for Kimchaa and I cried for the life she led, much different than I have ever known. And that is just it about Davin's writing. He pulled me into these worlds. Worlds I have only read about or seen covered in news stories. Worlds I now feel like I have lived in, if only for a little while.
Davin portrays human beings as we are. With all of our faults, jealousies, and complications. As I read Bohemian I thought about how vividly Davin sees human nature. He is without a doubt an observer of the human psyche, besides being a writer and a scientist.
Davin's writing is truly intense and truly honest. Please go buy the book, you'll be glad you did. Thanks for reading. :-)
