Book Review: Phantasy by Marlowe Sr.

 (I was given this free ebook in exchange for an honest review)

Fired from his job, dumped by his girlfriend and shoved around by the world, a young, lazy, day-dreamer takes refuge in his world of dreams and fantasies, and finally decides to become a writer. And what does he want to write about? He wants to write about monsters! He wants to write about fights, action, adventure, etc.! He's writing a book about:

'Two simple minded, happy-go-lucky buddies suddenly find themselves in trouble when they are attacked by a 3000-year old fireball-belching monster whom nothing seems to be able to defeat. When all the tricks of the local police fail to control the creature, and ordinary bullets and bombs prove useless, the question remains - will the world ever be able to get rid of this menace once and for all?'

He has started created a world of his own, a world in which only HE can rule with full authority. But will he be able to finish what he's started? More importantly, will he be able to taste success in his new venture?

This book is different from what I normally read but that is ok because I have no problem branching out with a different approach to other genres. When I first started reading this book I was a little hesitant at first because of how it started off. To me it was written out like a screen play or a journal entry. At first can be somewhat confusing with the going back and forth to "then" and now" but once you keep reading it is easy to understand. 

I did feel bad for the guy because basically his life just sucked. He got fired from his job, lost his girlfriend, and his home life isn't great either. He writes to vent out his problems. I like that he does that because as the reader that is something that a lot of people can relate to as they are reading the book. I know I can. Another thing that I liked about the book is that he takes refuge in a world of his fantasies. Sometimes you just need that escape and I fully understand that.


Overall this was good and I did enjoy reading it.I loved that I can relate to this book and the character because I take refuge in reading which is my escapism. I would recommend this book and I look forward to reading more from this author.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.
