Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

The Book of M by Peng Shepherd

This is one of the stranger books I have read and I have read some strange ones.   People start to lose their shadows and the shadows are what keeps memories.   The story is about people becoming shadowless and the journey to save their memories.

The shadow free folks begin to exhibit traits that threaten those with shadows and are consequently persecuted.   This leads to some extremely bizarre reactions by those without shadows.

I finished the book but it was a bit of a struggle.  Lots and lots of introspection leavened with occasional action.  It will probably end up as required reading by psych classes.

I've read some of the reviews and obviously some folks have seen more in this book than I did.  Dystopian novels can pique your interest or not.  This one did not pique my interest. 

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
