Review by: Kevin Basil on March 30, 2012 :
Let me start off by saying that this is a very good story about loss, longing, desire, and tragedy. The story follows Peter, a man who just lost someone very close to him, as he journeys through his life trying to keep it together. It is a story about a broken man just trying to keep going when the pain threatens to destroy him. This is a great story about his journey, the connections he makes, and the people he meets. The story is written very well and the characters are well developed.

However, I found it hard to get through the story. This is entirely due to being misled. Does the cover look like it belongs to a drama about a man trying to find himself again? No. Does the first line of the synopsis ("If your future is written on your palms, can you change it by scarring your hands?") make you believe that this is a story about doing just that to somehow change your future? Yes. It is all very misleading and I found myself confused for at least the first half of the story because of it. Aside from that, I'd say the story is very good.

Review by: P.A. Hopkins on Oct. 06, 2011 :
No matter how deeply wounded you think you are, there is always someone with a wound that is deeper. This book allows the reader to see that no matter how much control you think you have, there is always an outside force that truly has control. A little on the slow side, very draggy in spots but over all a good reading experience.

I found a slow start (not unwelcome, provided the necessary background needed) gradually picking up pace. I read in a day i couldnt put it down. Kept me guessing up till the end. A very enjoyable read and i will certainly look for more from the author.

I can see where the link to the scars changing one's life comes from, but the story didn't quite live up to the blurb, I'm afraid. I don't agree that it was boring; rather, it wasn't particularly fast-paced. I quite enjoyed it though, despite the ending (or lack of 'proper'ending).

BORING! SORRY BUT THIS WAS TOO BORING TO KEEP MY BRAIN OCCUPIED! I quit trying to read it after 37 pages or so.
