I liked this book (novella). It is pacy, well written and interesting and I will definitely be getting the next one. However, I have a couple of niggles with it: the first chapter is boring. I know that's intentional, but reading what time it is every couple of paragraphs is dull (and I get that Todd is trying to show how boring his protagonist is). Also, unless I've missed something, there appear to be some errors or sections that are not explained clearly. For example, we are told that Donovan has spent 'years climbing the corporate ladder', and on the next page it shows he has had two promotions. The first sentence doesn't lead to the second in my book. A later section implies that Donovan has been disappearing for days, only for the next page to imply it is only one day after his first disappearance. These are nitpicks, definitely, but they pulled me out of the story and cost it a star. The pace picks up considerably for the middle section and this bit is truly great, I couldn't put it down. Finally the ending is a little too neat and easy. Donovan doesn't do anything ingenious to capture a man who has been on the run for ages and so the ending is a let down.

However, it is still a good read and one that I would recommend. As I said, I will get his next book and will look for other works: Todd Kiesling has the makings of being a very good writer.

"A Life Transparent," by Todd Keisling, grabs you right from the start. The novel's anti-hero, Donovan Candle, might as well have been the inspiration for the old Beatles' song, "Nowhere Man." His existence is so devoid of meaning and substance that he literally starts to disappear. Or at least in the physical sense. This plot devise is so simple and yet so compelling that you cannot wait to find out how it all plays out.

Given the possible directions the book could've gone, I wished a less traveled path had been selected. It turns out there's a plot afoot to make many a soul disappear, replete with monsters and the lot, and Candle must rescue his wife--i.e., prove his manhood. I'm sure that many readers will like this tale as it is, and certainly it is well written and made credible through the author's skill. Keisling is an urgent and sincere writer, with good horse sense for what a character would or would not do in a particular situation. But ultimately I felt that Keisling's promising talent was not being used to its full potential. He seems to have much more to say than his own storyline permits him.

Specifically, I took issue with Candle supposedly being a nothing of a person while at the same time sharing so strong a love bond with his wife. Call me old-fashioned, but when you have this kind of love in your iife, you definitely are somebody.

Still, it's a book you'll remember, and you'll look forward to Keisling's next book.
