I had no idea where this story was going but I quickly leapt onboard for the fun ride. It turned into an adventure when Hal Maybury made an amazing discovery on a drunken night out when he fell into a hole...well, a canyon actually. What he did next would change everything and leave him with an enormous ethical dilemma.

The story took me through unexpected twists and was surprisingly amusing (the reference made to `duppy', Jamaican for ghost, made me choke on my drink with laughter). I could also relate to London landmarks (Camberwell, Finchley). I loved this story and the writing flowed effortlessly. It was short like novellas usually are, so when I finished it I went back and read it again. It's quite a credible tale and could easily be the type of thing you'd see on a modern-day Twilight Zone.

This was recommended as a free download over the weekend, and I thought I'd check it out. Science fiction isn't usually my thing, but I thought this was witty, cleverly constructed and raised some really interesting points about mass hysteria, religious fervour and hypocrisy. Samuels is a good satirical writer, and I'd love to see a full-length version of this.

I hugely enjoyed this book, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wanted to read an intelligent, entertaining and fun story. The empathy you feel with the maim character as he goes through his journey is wonderful, and makes you wonder how you would deal with the same adventure, being flung from the mundane into a world where anything is possible.

This was not just a great Sci Fi story or an amazing adventure, but a well thought out, wonderfully considered piece of work that has a great sense of character and humanity to it.

I would heartily recommend this, as I couldn't put I down from start to finish. I can't wait to see what this talented story teller comes up with next.

I'm always excited and intrigued to read (or watch) things from upcoming UK artists. I found 'The I Am' exciting, thought provoking, funny and unput-down-able.

Hal (the lead charachter) is the type of bloke a lot of people can relate to and its interesting to see how things spiral out of his curiosity.

This is the second book that I've bought from this author and can't wait to see what he come ups with next.

A thoroughly enjoyable and fresh take on the invisible man theme and I would recommend it!

What a fantastic novella. Samuels blends fantasy and sci-fi with a twist of comic book, and the story is completely addictive - I couldn't put it down. Highly recommended! Can't wait for the next one.

What a great novella! It was surprisingly funny and great for all of us who love London to see all the usually neglected bits featured. It is a perfect read for the tube as it is so engrossing that you don't notice your surroundings. That said, it was hard to put down. I look forward to more tales about Hal and Darcy in the future.

I've just finished part one and can't wait for a quiet moment to find out what happens to Hal next. A great read. A clever story well written, a quiet hero (so far), and it's making me smile. What more could you ask for?

Simply brilliant - well written, enthralling and great fun! Nice and refreshing to read a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat but also makes you chuckle along the way. Can't wait for any new work from the author.
