Review by: Erna Buber-deVilliers on Feb. 23, 2013 : star star star star star
This creative and highly imaginative work is full of insight and wisdom. The realistic depiction of the protagonist's life drew me in and kept me reading. A disillusioned high school teacher, a cheated husband, and a man who has too long denied his desire to be a writer: Corbin Cobbs is on a quest to find himself again. The author's prose requires some effort to read. If one is able to overlook its faults, the book is a rollicking read.

Review by: K T on Aug. 18, 2012 : star star star star star
This is one of the best books I've read all year. It is an innovative and beautifully written novel that focuses on current-day issues that take place in our schools seen from the eyes of a teacher, who himself is plagued with tormenting conflicts of his own. What makes it original is the way the works of classic literature are seamlessly interwoven into the story and anyone who loves and has a passion for literature will appreciate the minute details that capture the essence of each classic work. It is a must read for students and adults alike, and I highly recommend this book.
