Stormy Weather by Dermot Davis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the third book I have read my Dermot Davis and I must say I'm impressed. His use of flawed personalities to magnify society's issues is fascinating even though it's done indirectly. In Stormy Weather, readers are introduced to a 'dream therapist' who doesn't take his own advice.
His wife has left him, he has little faith in himself and strange things start happening in his own life. Soon reader and main character are confused about what is real and what isn't. This was the best part of the book for me. Dermot Davis took his time with toying with the reader's mind and I don't mean this in a bad way. He makes you think. Sick father, broken family, crumbling career, what do you need to do to put it all back together?
Would I recommend this read? Definitely a must read from me. You have a flawed character who's dealing with other people's faults instead of his own, something many of us find entertaining to do ourselves.
Offensive content?: Based on language and settings I would recommend it for readers 13 and above.
