A Shade of Mind (2012)

A Shade of Mind

Bobby was in a car crash. he died and was revived. however, after he woke up, he didn’t feel that he was alone, there was always someone at the back of his head, pushing him towards making a correct choice. as much as he freaked out with the intruder, he kept it to himself and dealt with it as best as he could. he started doing things he would never do otherwise, such as joining the girls’ volleyball team. he had strong feelings towards Angela, one of the girls on the team. when he found out from his new friend, Darren, that Angela’s father died on the same day that the he had his accident, it became clear what triggered those emotions.

I received a free e-book from the author in exchange for a review. the book was an easy read although it was slow at times. the first half of the book flew through easily, capturing my curiosity as it led me through the plot. last quarter of the book though, where the mysteries were already mostly uncovered, things tend to drag a little, seemingly reluctant to provide the big perfect ending sooner than later. the climax was slightly short to my likings but fortunately, still fairly satisfying. I had a great time putting myself in Bobby’s shoes, even though I rooted for Jennifer the most. the twist that kept Bobby’s experience even more entertaining was the bad environment that he grew up in. when the blocked out memories involving his father and sister was revealed, it became the utmost overwhelming scene of the book, as it managed to build its characters with so much more depth because of it.
