Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Fascination gets a boffo review

I haven’t plugged Fascination in a while, but I wanted to share the latest review of it posted on Amazon. It’s by British writer, Mike Robbins, and here’s a little excerpt:

It’s certainly a great road movie, with a constantly changing cast of characters – a shaman, a feminist cult, a Zen master, a radical feminist cult and more. This works because Brennan can really do character; some of these folks are better-drawn than others, but the best of them absolutely leap off the page. He’s also a witty writer (Clive passes time on the road by thinking up country-music song titles, such as ‘He Asked Me To Swallow, I Told Him To Split.’ I also liked ‘There’s a Rainbow in the Bruise He Left Behind’). The landscapes of the western US are vivid too, from the New Mexico desert to the rolling pasture hills of California. And last but not least there’s Fascination itself, an old-fashioned arcade game that really does exist, though it’s now quite rare. It’s a handy and colorful plot device.

Does Sally find Mason? Does Clive get the girl? Does Sally find herself? In a way it didn’t matter; I just really enjoyed the ride. I will be reading more by this guy.

Hat tip to Susan Toy, who guided Mike to the book, and in the process guided me to Mike’s work. I’ve racked up one of his for a spot on the Kindle.

If you haven’t read Fascination yet, download and get started on it today. It’s a perfect start to your summer reading, you can take it from Mike Robbins.

      Much appreciated, Susan! I think I’m leaning toward his “Three Seasons,” and not just because I’m as cheap as he is! 😉
