Review by: Crescent Suns eBooks on June 04, 2011 :
An excellent drama of life through the eyes of a man forced by circumstance to assume the identity of not only a dead man, but someone he himself killed. The False man is one of those stories impossible to put down, because it makes the reader want to know what exactly is happening in the bizarre life of this False Man.

Great storytelling, with an unexpected twist at the end. It's a rare book I can't put down--this was one.

Review by: Pedro Ludovico on May 16, 2011 :
This novel by David M. Antonelli is a page turner of rank one!
It is a darkly comedic romp about the narrator's life over several
years , from his imprisonment for murder in Mexico and subsequent
escape,to his assuming the identity of a German photographer, who
also ends up dead, to taking a trendy job on a pulp music magazine in
La-La Land .Once well situated in his new job and identity, he has
plenty of romantic adventures, but ultimately, and sadly because we
come to like him, he must pay for all his subversions. The writing is
lyrical, colorful and philosophical, with a twist of lemon, so to
speak. It is amazing that writing this good can be downloaded for
free!
