3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Reviewify.co.uk HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 9 Dec. 2013
Format: Paperback
This is a somewhat tricky book to categorised as although pitched as a crime/thriller there is a side order of sci-fi as well.

The best story overview I can think of is that it concerns two individuals whose stories start off separately and end up intertwined as they both try to solve different problems. I won't go into any further details as to do so would give away the plot and could spoil it for you.

The first part of the book felt a little repetitive and slow in parts, but once the characters and situation is set up it ticks along nicely, building up a story that makes you ask lots of questions and wonder how it's all going to get resolved.

Overall the authors style is easy to read and, for the most part, the story is well paced with some good twists and turns. Characters were well established and distinct from each other, and by the end of the story I realised I much prefered one of the main characters over the other. I won't say which one, I'll be interested to hear which character other readers prefer in the comments below.

If you're looking for something a little different that spans a few genres I'd certainly recommend giving this book a go.

'I plagiarized this book from myself' is a mixed bag. On the one hand there are some solid observations and quotable dialogue, as well as some intriguing quasi-horror set-pieces. On the other hand, the author's insertion of himself into the work -- problematic even for such renowned writers as Stephen King -- is very jarring in drawing attention to the fact that you are, indeed, reading a piece of fiction. The 'Dark Tower' series, at least, did not dwell overlong on the 'Stephen King as a character' plot device, but in 'I plagiarized this book from myself', it's a major plot point and there's no overlooking it; nor, consequently, is it easy to suspend disbelief.

The plot primarily concerns two men, ostensibly unconnected, attempting to unravel two mysteries: the first is a shelf-stacking aspiring novelist whose sole literary achievement is a single page of prose. The second is a private detective looking into the ten-year disappearance of a child, who has since returned and become plagued with night terrors.

The Northern Ireland setting appears at first to be modern day, although as the story progresses there are hints both overt and subtle that this is more of a near-future setting. This is made readily apparent in the finale, which for obvious reasons, I won't elaborate upon.

Of the two protagonists, the private detective, Kirk Mittelmark, is the more intriguing, perhaps due to the naturally engaging nature of his work.

I got a free copy courtesy of Story Cartel. This is the author's first published novel and I look forward to reading more. Engaging story that's well written with some great characterisation. Well done!

By Richard Lang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This story is like a visit to the Twilight Zone. It starts with Will, a grocery stocker, who wants to be a writer. He steals a leather bound from a bookstore which only has one written page, the one HE wrote on his laptop. With his curiosity and temper stoked, he seeks out the plagiarizer and publisher to claim his work. As the plot expands, he discovers that his lover is his cloned sister, his cloned brother is the publisher, and his father is the author/plagiarizer Boyd Jamison. Did I mention this all happens in the future? The real Boyd Jamison writes an entertaining, albeit conflicted tale that's certainly worth a read.
