A twisting tale that has a relatable aspect.

Greg Hickey has a wonderful way of weaving a tale that keeps the reader invested in the story. Tim Smit leads a mundane life, at an ordinary desk job, when one day he comes down with a mysterious illness. This sickness would take a turn for the worst, sending Tim down a dark hole and making his future uncertain. 

There was a lot of technical lingo in the book that obviously took a lot of time to research. I was impressed by how thorough the author was. I could almost feel myself in the hospital room with Tim. It was that real

This book received a solid 4 out of 5 stars from me as it kept me involved the whole book.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
