Now that I’ve learned that UK Amazon has reviews that don’t cross-pollinate over at US Amazon, I check there regularly. While the number of Bridgeport reviews on the UK site hasn’t increased since the last time I mentioned this, I got my first Weed Therapy review at the UK site. One that isn’t also posted on the US site. Here it is, courtesy of Ammiewyn
When I first picked up this book I had no idea what to expect and the title does little to give it away – which is a really good thing. I loved this from start to finish – the Author’s style is exceptional and the way that the book includes both the past and the present but so neatly intertwined, amazed me throughout.
The story covers Kelvin Rockwell who is discontent with his life and goes to a remote village in Mexico in search of the answers. The author takes you through every stage of his journey and the emotions that are brought out, and the lessons that are learned are so true to life and so relevant to so many of us out there. By the time I had finished reading, not only did I feel enlightened, but I also felt enriched. It is like your own personal therapy book but with a beautiful story with truly believable characters and a brilliant writing style.
I don’t care if this is your genre or not – just read it!
What is frustrating about this is that I now officially have ten reviews on Amazon — the magic number for EReaderNewsToday. They are all four and five star reviews, so I meet the threshold of an average rating of at least four stars. But, I’m still stuck on nine on the official site, because one of those is only on the UK site.
What is exciting about this review is that it is by somebody who, as far as I know, I don’t know and who doesn’t follow my blog. (So, Ammiewyn, if I’m wrong about that, let me know in comments.) Yet, it is remarkably similar to many of the other reviews and comments I’m getting.
Weed Therapy is a story I wrote in a manner unlike any other story I had written up to that point. I had some things I wanted to get across. A point I wanted to make. (Yes, Beaver, even I might occasionally write a story where I want to make a point.) What I’ve loved hearing is how people have read the story, enjoyed it, and then talked about it with their friends and loved ones. My sister, her husband and a friend talked about it one night. Others have told me that it has made them stop and consider things, or that they have spent days discussing the story with their spouses. Never did I imagine that I might write a story that could produce such results.
I hope, if you’ve read it, you have found something in it to help you find some answers.
