First book reviews are coming

Pals Forever came out two months ago, and I am lucky enough to have already first book reviews. Granted, they are all from the friends and family, but that’s only the beginning as my story travels around the world. Nevertheless, I am prepared for the good, the bad, and the ugly, and, hopefully, will learn something from the criticism. As long as it’s constructive.

If you got the book and read it, please write and post the review. For the author, reviews are one of many tools to improve his or her writing. If they are honest and well-meaning.

There are many ways to look at the story, any story. I’m convinced, the better the book, the more layers are there to discover. I pride myself on crafting many storylines, and making them real. So there we have a genuine drama in the operating room, which I call ‘theater’. A theater is the original place where all the drama happens. While writing, I try to avoid blood, guts, and gory. I have a real operative table, not an autopsy table. The crime is sophisticated, and the problems are real. There are no grizzly murders. If someone dies, it’s a result of an authentic medical circumstances.

Cardiac surgery specialty is one of the most stressful jobs, with the real life implications. Here are the scientific papers attempting to quantify its risks.,personal%20accomplishment%20at%20work%2C%20respectively.

The trilogy of Dr. Murano’s life illustrates the perils of a busy cardiac surgeon’s life. It shows his desperate struggle to balance the protagonist’s duty to the patients against having a rewarding family life. The ultimate goal is to have a happy and fulfilling third trimester of his life.

Please let me know if I am on track to create the authentic and relatable and story.

Excellent read – highly recommend

Having read some of his previous works, I see how the author is evolving in the mastery of his craft as a storyteller. Life is a chain of interlocking events. The chapters in this book are kept short, so I can absorb the content, comfortably, on my schedule. The story is compelling. The stresses in life can be daunting. The main character in this book has struggles in trying to cope. Some choices in life can’t be undone. Others can be healed with a great deal of help and transparency in trust. As a society, we have strayed from the importance of the father and son relationship. The nightly news is telling. Too often, boys do not have a good mentor who will teach them how to live, rather than exist. Every child needs to be mentored to help them find their true purpose and leave a lasting legacy for good. The excessive pursuit of individual entertainment is compounded by divorce, drugs and death in our society. This book reminds me that relationships are the most important factor in each of our lives.

Thrilling medical mystery

This page-turner had me on the edge of my seating, waiting to find out who committed the crime in the operating room. The author does an excellent job intertwining the storytelling of operating room perils and parenting challenges. Jack’s ability to focus on his family and true values in the midst of complete turmoil serves as a great reminder to check in on our own priorities. I can’t wait to read the next one!

Touching and something we should all read

Fantastic book! I highly recommend reading it. It is very well written and keeps you wanting to read more at the end of each chapter. I could not put it down. Suspenseful and heartwarming at the same time. Truly one of the best books I have read in quite a while. I can’t wait to read the next book he writes.

Loved it!
