Was recommended this by a friend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought provoking, sensitive and very readable. A little gem. The characters are interesting and varied. Each chapter is named after a different song - listen to each as you read and enter fully into the world and the mind set of the main character. I wish it had been longer as I read it in one sitting! Would recommend to anyone wanting something a little different.

This debut short book by independent author Richard Custer shows his talent for writing a story that does what all good stories should do; take the reader on a journey to another person's perspective on life. 'Take Me Home' is the story of a young man who battles against depression, turning in the course of the story from despair to hope.
A moving story, and well worth reading.

I didn't know what to expect from this book, and I got a lot more than I thought I would. For the last two years I have been caring for a friend who attempted suicide, and this book took me straight into the position of someone trying to end their life - and what happened afterwards. Richard takes you into the soul of someone in so much pain that death seems preferable to life, and through the joy and growth pains of stepping away from the abyss. This is genuine, and I recommend it to anyone trying to understand a suicide attempt.

The writing is powerfully emotive, and flows from the heart. The only downside is that Richard's punctuation through what should be dialogue is very hit-and-miss. Richard, this is an amazing book, it's worthy of a professional proof-reader and editor, and a second edition with which it would earn the full five stars.

A Must Read 30 Mar. 2011
By Mandy Grace - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Excellent, enjoyable read. Deals with one man's struggle with attempted suicide and his journey through inpatient treatment. Custer's style of writing brings the characters to life and into your heart. It shows that depression/suicide knows no age, gender, or skin color. That treatment is there to help, but can not solve your problems, you have to do it for yourself. And that we are loved even when we think we are not.
At the end of the book you are left wanting more. I hope he writes a sequel so readers can continue taking the journey with Micheal. I also hope this book gets to publishing in hard copy so it can reach out and touch even more people, and be used as a tool to help others.

suicide attempt 4 April 2011
By Janet Brown - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was different to read, even the writing style was different but still a good read from a young man's eyes from his suicide attempt to his time in the mental ward. I did read it all in one sitting as I wanted to know what happened next.

Take Me Home again and again 12 Mar. 2011
By Miss Polly 22 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What a beautiful read for anyone wanting a book about the inner turmoil some people struggle with and finding a light at the end of the tunnel. The first chapter had me captivated and I couldn't put the book down. The characters are so intriguing and you can't help but care about them and want to know more of what has brought them to where they are. Just wish the book was longer as I didn't want it to end when it did. LOVED IT :)

Don't Miss This One! 27 Mar. 2011
By Gary Hoover - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Take me home is a simple but moving and, at times, haunting story of one person's very personal journey. It's the story of 30 days in the life of Michael Gabriel, who, after an attempted suicide must come to terms with what brought him to that point (and try to find out where `home' really is).

One of the first technical details the reader will notice is that, like Cormac McCarthy, Custer doesn't use quotation marks. It gives an interesting and appropriate feel. The story flows very smoothly as a stream of consciousness and the reader never feels that their attention is going from one character to another, but rather staying within the confines of Gabriel's mind throughout.

The character is deeply affected by music, and Custer encourages the reader to listen to the actual songs as they are referenced (thankfully, Google makes this possible and easy). The story is at times disturbing, but it is also sprinkled with humor. I think most readers will relate to the feelings Gabriel expresses - though most of us don't feel them as intensely and haven't taken them to the extremes that Gabriel does in the story.

And the fact that we can relate is what really makes the story work. Michael feels lonely, isolated and, at times, angry . . . but, of course, all of us feel those emotions. Reading a story like this reminds us that those feelings aren't as unique as we might sometimes think and it encourages us to reach out and make the kind of personal connections that can prevent such feelings from overwhelming us.

Overall a thoughtful and thought-provoking work. Worth checking out.
