Review from OnlineBookClub.org
The book is inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. It portrays real life situations that happens in our lives on daily basis. McDowell deals with the realities of devastation that can occur in the lives of the people we love because of our own self-promotion and egocentrism. It also portrays social issues that are evident in our lives today for instance assisted suicide and the power of the press. The message in the book has the ability to change us in a positive way. McDowell plays a great role in our lives in that from it we learn that we should not let material desire rule us to a point of destruction. Like in the book, Hiram is a kind of a person who lets material desire rule to a point of destruction. Even though how he reacts to the destruction is just amazing and unique.
I rate McDowell 4 out of 4 stars because it was such an interesting and peculiar novel in that it was written in a different way from what most of us are used to. The book also had a great plot and was engaging too. I would recommend this book to those who love great self-redemption stories rich in complex characters. It won’t disappoint.
