IT’S FOR REAL   Leave a comment

I JUST POSTED THIS  REVIEW ON GOODREADS OF THE KILLING DREAM: BOOK THREE OF THE TRILOGY LONG JOURNEY BACK FROM NAM BY JAMES ROBERT KANE

Is this for real? Dreams and visitations? Yes, truth can be told in so many ways, and this culmination of the trilogy strikes to the heart of the matter. For this reader, this last volume in the trilogy is the most powerful. In crisp clear language the author takes us through the final stages of healing – through grief, guilt, confusion, beautifully crafted love scenes, resolution, and ultimately awareness of the breadth and yet limitation of human life. One cannot help feeling the humanity of the well-crafted characters. I venture to say this volume could well stand on its own, though it would then lose some of the richness of what has gone before.
