Rip the Sky

I was pulled into the book, by the down to Earth writing, that tells a realistic life story of Billy. It is a story of a troubled man, plagued by mental issues, that only got worse by the horrors seen in war. The PTSD that followed made Billy find a way to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. It was during the most challenging times that he learned to ‘fly’. He yearned for a different life, the one he had a small taste of through his travel to the interlude, a spiritual space outside of space and time, a waiting room of sorts, through which he can see glimpses of his other lives.

This is a tragic story of endless struggle with an addiction, the hard life and the curse that often follows veterans of war, interwoven with the hope that there is something else, something more in another life.

It is one of those books that grip you from the start and pull at your heart, so you can't help but feel and root for the MC.

General Thoughts on the Novel:
I was lost in the story from start to finish and couldn't put it down. It's a very realistically told story, without sugar coating, mixed with metaphysical elements that add another dimension toit all. And the writing is very, very good!
