Much More Than Nothingness in Boney's Book

Opening a book by an unknown author is a little like opening an unmarked chest.  Inside could as easily be a nest of snakes or inert sand as a hodgepodge of unique and interesting artifacts.  Finding the boxes with the fascinating treasure, a story that transports readers into another time and place with characters they will come to know, love, and cherish, makes reading for review worthwhile.

My most recent find is The Nothingness of Ben by Brad Boney, the review of which went live on AAR today.  This is one of those books that when readers finish reading the last word, they wish there were another hidden hundred pages still waiting to be read.  This is a book where the identification of being part of the family is so strong, that finishing the book breaks the ties so completely that readers will be rudely awakened to the real world around them.  This book is definitely a Desert Isle Keeper, a book to read and enjoy over and over again.

As I say in my review, I can't wait to read his next book.

(With any luck, Boney's next book will feature a cover without chopped off heads!)
