Head Trip is not the typical book I would read. It is the first of the American Drama Series, which deals with the "seven deadly sins" as they appear in one man's life. The book has a lot of background medical information, which I found to be very interesting and slightly distasteful. It contains a great deal of symbolism. There was some bad language in it and some of the scenes are particularly graphic. These took away from the story for me. Overall, the story was intriguing and suspenseful. Unexpected turns in the story kept me guessing. I was surprised many times by the plot twists. The story covered a long time span (about twenty years) in about 300 pages. Eadon did an excellent job of establishing strong character development in those 300 pages. He likens the main characters (Marcus and Roger) to the Biblical brothers Jacob and Esau whose rivalry changed history. Likewise, Marcus and Roger's relationship changes history in many aspects. When I read the summary on the back of the book, I mistakenly expected the book to be a Christian novel. This is definitely not something I could give to my grandmother, who is my earthly barometer for holiness. The series will continue with the sin of greed. The question is, how will it end? This is not a story for someone looking for an easy weekend read. Instead, Head Trip will take you on a thrilling ride that won't stop without a sudden jolt.
I received a copy of this book to review. The opinions are 100% mine.
