rising from the ashes
Riding Towards Shadows - Nellie Merthe Erkenbach

Riding Towards Shadows really impressed me more than most books I've read in recent months.

A self-discovery novel that exudes strength and vulnerability at the same time, is personal and also help (almost instructions) for women in a similar situation. Nellie Merthe Erkenbach takes us on her journey through the pain of loss, a journey into her past, which she undertakes to heal in the present.

The Glasgow of the 1990s is an unknown world but opens up through Erkenbach’s vivid descriptions and flashbacks.

Riding Towards Shadows is a "road movie" and that's why the vehicle plays a special role; her motorcycle, a Harley-Davidson Sportster, is almost mythical, a symbol of masculinity that helps this woman to emancipate from male stereotypes. The actual journey thus becomes an inner development, a maturing process.

Because these are real people, some characters remain a little unclear but this gives the story a certain kick.

Riding Towards Shadows is suffering from love lost and growing through dealing with the pain, it is not a humorous book but one that stays with the reader for a long time after the last page is turned.

Jenseits der Dunkelwelt - Roman - Taschenbuch und Ebook




Der psychologische Roman entführt den Leser in die Welt einer inneren Zerreißprobe des verzweifelten Familienvaters Karl Sandhauser nach seiner wahren Bestimmung. Auf der Suche nach mehr Freiheit wird er zwischen familiären und beruflichen Alltagspflichten und Sehnsucht nach einem anderen Leben zerrieben. Für seine Ziele schreckt er auch vor Verbrechen nicht zurück und landet schließlich in der Psychiatrie. Dort begegnet er zwei geheimnisvollen Frauen, die ihn über die erweiterte Wirklichkeit aufzuklären beginnen und damit sein Wesen langsam verändern.


Alles was er nun plant und ausführt steht unter der Grenzmarkierung von Wahn und Wirklichkeit, Bewusstheit und Unbewusstem, Realität und Fiktion.
Ertrinkt er im Strudel der Ereignisse? Und steckt nicht in uns allen auch die Energie der Verzweiflung, die selbst vor Verbrechen nicht halt macht, wenn nur der innere Druck groß genug ist?


Restbestände der Taschenbuch-Ausgabe sind über die Homepage der Autorin zu beziehen: www.christa-schyboll.de

Ultra subversives love a bit of green.  So why not stick it to the man (in publishing) by supporting my anti-hero, true life novel.  
Coming from the backstreets to lower end of the sex trade and beyond.  Paulyanna International Rent-boy is a unique road-trip with a rough edge.  
It is also on SALE.   
(note: Although it can be found on Amazon it is presently cheaper on Smashwords)  
Truth is often better than fiction, so read more biographies and read these reviews:  http://powerpuffgeezer.webs.com/book-reviews
Thank you, PDL.

The Road (Movie Tie-in Edition 2009) (Vintage International)
The Road - Cormac McCarthy Rating: 3.5
I'm not entirely sure what I think about this book. At times it was extremely boring and at other times, I couldn't put it down. It was a slow read but it was interesting. I really liked seeing the relationship between the father and the son. Their conversations were short but I enjoyed them. I loved how the story was written. No chapters, instead it had breaks in-between paragraphs. The descriptions of the world were also amazing. I definitely recommend this book :)
