#BookReview of To Hell With Johnny Manic by Andrew Diamond #JohnnyManicBook #NetGalley #PsychologicalSuspense
Upfront information: To Hell With Johnny Manic by Andrew Diamond was provided to me as an advanced reader's copy via Stolen Time Press and NetGalley. It will be available for purchase on August 1, 2019.
Parental note: There is violence as well as adult language and subtle scenes of an intimate nature.
Genre and Rating: Psychological Suspense - 5 Stars
Brief synopsis: A man running from his past enters Napa Valley to make a new start. A simple life as a computer repair technician. A nice plan if he can make it work. Not an easy task for a person who is magnetically attracted to trouble.
My thoughts about this story as a reader: As I was reading this story, I seem to feel the main character’s highs and lows. I’m not sure if I was relating to the character or the situations. Either way, it made for a significantly different reading experience for me. I’d recommend to fellow readers to not read this as you are trying to get to sleep. There will come a point when you simply will not be able to stop or sleep until you finish it.
My thoughts about this story as an author: I think that Mr. Diamond made the right choice in presenting this story from the first-person perspective. In that way, the reader only saw what the narrator saw, heard, and felt as events unfolded.
If you missed it, Mr. Diamond’s Gate 76 was my first NetGalley review and the first time I read his work. I'm sure I'll read even more of his work in the future. If you'd like to learn more about the author and/or his books, you can visit any of the following links.
