The Austin Paradox by Willaim R Leibowitz @MiracleManBook @iReadBookTours
The Austin Paradox - William Leibowitz

 

 
MY REVIEW
 
I LOVED Miracle Man, Book I, so I was very eager to begin The Austin Paradox, Book II, and I did, immediately. It’s a story of a superhero, but not one endowed with magical powers. He has a mind, a level of genius, never seen before.
 
This is where we find Robert James Austin’s mindset as we embark on a mission to save more lives.
 
There is a force of negativity and destruction in the universe. Highly efficient and infinitely resourceful, it empowers and leads. It gives diseases their resiliency, their tenacity, their propensity to reinvent themselves, resist treatments, regenerate and defensively mutate. It propels them.
 
Christine, his wife, just wants a normal life, and now she has it…or does she?
 
William R Leibowitz’s novels have a ring of truth to them, when dealing with Big Pharma and the government. So much of what he writes makes me angry, disgusted, and feeling helpless to do anything about it. I love when an author’s writing brings forth emotions that, at times, seem to overwhelm me. And if these books don’t open your eyes and scare the crap out of you, I don’t know what will.
 
I have dealt with the affects of the ‘don’t cure the disease, just treat the symptoms’, mentality of those who want more, more money, more control, more….How about you?
 
The main story, though, is about Robert James Austin and his desire to right the wrongs, all while fighting his personal demons. Robert believes that things should change and wants to help do it, by finding cures and making them accessible to everyone, not just those who can afford it. Man, oh man, if only his cures were real.
 
The Austin Pardox is different from The Miracle Man, but we are still learning about his genius, or now, it is his lack of it. His life is still in danger from himself, but also from outside forces who want him gone. The book may be different, but it is still just as intense.
 
A biological weapon, an apocalyptic Islamic caliphate…I wonder how everything will come together. I fear for the entire planet.
 
I know this is fiction, but I feel it could become all too real. Can we look at William R Leibowitz’s series as a warning?  Think about it. Who decides who lives and who dies? Who do you trust? The Austin Paradox left me hopeful and pissed off for The Miracle Man.
 
I didn’t rate this as high as The Miracle Man. It was a bit different, but I wonder, was it my mood? Did I get dogged down in the details? I wonder if, after reading The Miracle Man, I found The Austin Paradox more predictable. I don’t know, but I find the series to be a special series, and I would highly recommend it to everyone!

Greatest Genius In Human History – The Miracle Man by Willaim R Leibowitz @MiracleManBook @iR
Miracle Man - William Leibowitz
Hi and welcome to my first of two posts for the Miracle Man series. Today I will be sharing Miracle Man and Thursday, the 13th, I will be sharing The Austin Paradox, Miracle Man Book 2.
 
Miracle Man
 
MY REVIEW
 
The cover, those eyes, exciting, alluring, drawing me in, deeper and deeper…
 

WOW! My blood was boiling, my heart pounding, my palms sweating….well, you get the drift. Miracle Man is over the top fantabulous! Unputdownable!

 

OH NO. Here we go…

 

Isn’t there a government organization for everything?

 

The kid, 11 year old Bobby Austin…I hope the parents are suspicious about the Institute’s motivations, because I sure am!

 

As I write this review, I am watching Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon, and Robert James Austin makes me think of Sheldon. Intelligence off the charts and socially inept, in fact he becomes so engrossed in his work, he zones people out completely, drives himself past the brink of exhaustion. But is that all that’s going on?

I can see some badness coming his way. Nevertheless, I am loving this rollercoaster ride and you couldn’t pry the book out of my hands with a crowbar.

 

I believe our medical research leaves a lot to be desired and so does Robert. I believe Big Pharma is more interested in creating a treatment, than a cure. But, he is in the position to do something about it. Robert puts his life on the line for his beliefs. He is driven obsessed, he cannot stop until he finds the answer.

 

Joe, his mentor, is someone you have to meet for yourself. All I will say is…I love the man.

 

The writing is excellent and the story so intense, I keep forgetting Miracle Man is fiction. I want to put my arms around Robert and tell him it will be all right. Remember, he is only 11 years old, and I am watching him grow up.

 

I am trying real hard not to spoil anything, so I am scanning my notes for small nuggets that can convey how much I loved this story.

 

So thought provoking…So many questions come to mind…

 

Government conspiracies, Big Pharma, betrayal, inner demons, greed, entitlement, religion…

 

The characters…all are well developed and unique individuals in their own right. Some I loved and some I truly hated, detested, wanted to jump into the book and punch their lights out! I empathized with some, I wanted to bury some under the jail, but they are all pivotal to evoking emotions of sadness, rage, love, and hope, and have their place in the story.

 

I wondered how William R Liebowitz would wrap up Miracle Man. I had some ideas and he flirted with them, but took them even further than I envisioned. Way to go, William!

 

This is a must read for anyone that gives a damn about the world we live in! Let’s hope some genius reads this book and gets motivated.

 

The interview at the end left me feeling confused. What, if anything, can change the way business and research is done? I don’t have the answers, but I know something different needs to be done.

 

Thank goodness I have book II, The Austin Paradox. No waiting and I am beginning it now.

Author interview: William R. Leibowitz

 

 

Q:  What made you decide to become a published author?

 

A:   I had stories to tell that were important to me.  Miracle Man and The Austin Paradox chronicle the saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history, from the time of his birth and tragic childhood through his extraordinary accomplishments in curing diseases.  These books are psychological/medical/conspiracy thrillers with fast paced twisting plots that are full of surprises and drama, as Austin battles abandonment and betrayal and the myriad powerful forces (external and internal) that seek to destroy him.   In writing Miracle Man and The Austin Paradox, I wanted to create a modern day believable ‘super hero’ who is an ‘anti-celebrity’.  I thought that such a person could be inspirational when contrasted with the meritless celebrities that dominate media today (e.g., the reality TV stars who are famous for being famous, but have no real talent).  I also wanted Miracle Man and The Austin Paradox to be the vehicles within which I could convey, in an entertainment context, certain spiritual and humanistic messages that mean a great deal to me.

 

 

Q:  What kind of messages are you referring to?

 

A:   One of the underlying themes in Miracle Man is the sanctity of each and every human life.  As the story of the protagonist, Robert James Austin, unfolds throughout the novel, I think the reader will come to appreciate that one can never predict the ramifications of one person’s death.  Robert Austin should have died as a new born, but he was saved in the most unlikely of manners; he then went on to change the world in extraordinary ways.  His life was not expendable.  We all are bombarded every day by statistics of death –how many people died in the latest war, or from famine, or epidemic or other manmade or natural cataclysm.  People’s lives are jumbled together by the media as meaningless numbers.  But what I want the reader of Miracle Man to think about ---is the individual.  Has anyone ever thought how likely it is that the person who would have cured cancer was killed in a Concentration Camp?  That’s why Miracle Man begins with the quotation from Scriptures – “To destroy one life is to destroy an entire world, and to save one life is to save an entire world.”

 

 

Q:  Did any real life situations find their way into your books?

 

A:   Yes.  In writing Miracle Man and The Austin Paradox, I wanted to get readers thinking about a real-life problem that affects us all. One of the powerful forces fighting my protagonist, Robert James Austin, is “Big Pharma” which views Austin as their enemy since he cures diseases and thereby makes many of their “cash-cow” drugs obsolete.  In short, Austin is bad for their business.  Like Austin, I find it incomprehensible that virtually no major disease has been cured in over 50 years.  How can that be the case when so much money has been spent over the decades on research?  Simply put, there’s a lot more money in treating symptoms than there is in curing diseases.  Austin realized that Big Pharma has no interest in curing diseases.  It just wants to keep on selling expensive symptom treatments –and as we know, many people are on ‘medication maintenance programs’ for years, sometimes for life.  Austin wanted to change that.  The Austin Paradox also deals with bio-terrorism which I believe is a very real---and both books deal with a real life problem that has permeated every aspect of our society and that of the rest of the world –unbridled greed and the elevation of money above ethics and morality.

 

 

Q:  Good thrillers usually have great villains.  How about in your books?

 

A:  Oh yes!  Villains are my specialty.  I have some terrific ones—all highly believable and complex in their own right.  Corrupt pharma execs, a twisted CIA director, Russian and Chinese oligarchs, bio-terrorists.  You name ‘em and I got ‘em—and I’ll put mine up against any.  I love them all.

 

Q:  Do you hear from your readers?  What do they say?

 

A:   I’ve been fortunate to have received almost one thousand letters from readers who have expressed their enthusiasm for my books and who have indicated how the books are relevant to their personal life experience.  There’s nothing more rewarding for an author than to establish a dialog with individual readers.

 

 

 

William R. Leibowitz has been practicing entertainment law in New York City for a number of years. He has represented numerous renown recording artists, songwriters, producers and many of the leading record companies, talent managers, merchandisers and other notable entertainment businesses. At one point, he was the Chief Operating Officer/General Counsel for the Sanctuary Group of Companies, a U.K. public company that was the largest ‘indie’ music company in the world (prior to its acquisition by the Universal Music Group). William has a Bachelor of Science Degree from New York University (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and a law degree from Columbia University. He lives in the village of Quogue, New York with his wife, Alexandria, and dog, George.

 

William wrote Miracle Man because of its humanistic and spiritual messages and because he feels that in our current times– when meritless celebrity has eclipsed accomplishment and the only heroes are those based on comic books, the world needs a real hero—and that, of course, is Robert James Austin.

The Austin Paradox
The Austin Paradox - William Leibowitz

The Austin Paradox by William R. Leibowitz is the sequel to Miracle Man. In this one we see a different Robert Austin, one who doesn't have the intelligence he once had but still wants to work at curing diseases. He still has to deal with his personal demons, forces that are trying to destroy him and a government that wants him under control. He is determined to do what's right though whether he still has his intelligence or not.

 

 This book is much like the first one, what it lacks in action it makes up with a good story with multiple meanings and some great characters. I find it interesting in this book that Robert Austin is helping the world to be a better place yet there are so many people who don't see it that way. People have there own perception of what right and wrong is and to some curing diseases is doing wrong and I'm not just talking about the pharmaceutical companies point of view. If you like books that make you think and has a lot of deep meanings then check this one out.
