Review of Khedlar’s Story by Bonnye Matthews

 

Synopsis: Khedlar is an adult as this thriller begins. He takes you through the present with frequent flashbacks to prior parts of his life. As the book begins the story he weaves is straightforward, but as the story moves along, you can see and be as fooled by life events as he is. His bizarre childhood is horrible, but not enough to turn him into the psychopath he becomes, but the threads start there. The reader moves from reality to questioning what reality is to reality that conflicts with any previous reality, and only at the end does the reader finally understand how the threads that connect us to clear reality can be utterly deceptive and mind breaking. Even the reader gets lost in what’s real. It’s not that Khedlar’s experience causes the reader to end up sympathetic to what Khedlar does, but the reader, starting with no understanding of the psychopath, can gain a bit of understanding how the mind can be removed from normal to psychopath.

Critique:  Catherine Nuza has written many words to replace what a short chapter in a non-fiction book could provide in knowledge. In doing so, she takes the reader through not only the surface experience of how the mind can be brought to ruin but also the opportunity to share experientially Khedlar's views as the reader moves through the book. The experience of reading the book adds depth to the surface knowledge of a non-fiction chapter, instead becoming a virtual reality. For the mental health uninitiated this can be a disturbing book. The work is amazing in what it has to offer even if disturbing. I highly recommend this book for academic and community libraries.


Review of Khedlar’s Story by Liana Peklfvana

Good read In general Vocabulary is kept simple, a lot of writers try 10 flare it up with complicate words., which often makes a book harder to read, Catherine Nuza needed of that. A natural author!

It does take a little while to get into the story. but once the lies start to unravel one realize that the slow beginning is necessary as these things help to put together this ever-growing puzzle as we dig deeper into Khedlar’s lost and disturbed existence on his pursuit for the truth. Every sentence leaving the mind too curious not to read on.

I wouldn’t say that there is too much going on, but it does require a lot of concentration to say the least. Not a single detail can be missed in this maze and whirlwind of a journey, or

you will, without a doubt, get lost. You can’t help but Join Khedlar through his emotional trauma. It takes a while to warm to him, but you eventually start to get used to his miserable outlook and flippant, untrusting

attitude towards the human race in general. Although I never thought Khedlar was insane, Khedlar is far too aware to be considered insane. Messed up, for sure. but not insane. We can all be fake in order to gt our way or adapt ourselves to our current situation. We all have dark thoughts and even the most sociable of us can be uncompromising loners. Khedlar’s just human at its rawest form.

A dark, twisted and messed up story that is most definitely not for the faint hearted. It always helps to end a story with a sick and unexpected twist, that takes a while to take in as its completely outrages and intriguing all at once.

Definitely worth the read. A little expensive for a first·time release on Kindle at £7 and the hard copy at $17 .95 approx. £14, considering most books on kindle, from well-known authors ::ire less than £5 and hard copies perhaps reaching the £12 mark. I am not too sure of the font of writing used on the cover, either. Regardless of that, you will not regret the purchase!

I rate this book at 4 stars. Great effort! I look forward to Khedlar’s revenge!
