REVIEW: In My Mind's Eye

In My Mind’s Eye

By: Justin Marciano

 Chased by the Klan, assaulted by family, influenced by friends, and shaped by environment, this narrative takes the reader through one man's life as a suburban teenager in Connecticut. The story is told in narrative shorts that go from violence to the guilt of stealing from a church. The reader will feel sympathy in one story, anger in the next and frustrating humor throughout. The author purposely takes the reader on a joyride through the lunacy that is captured in every story. The author's perspective emanates from every page. Open the book and be captured by the elegant insanity that becomes In My Mind's Eye.

In this quick and entertaining read the author Justin Marciano takes us on an emotional journey through his childhood. Reminiscent of “Sh*t My Dad Says” there are points where you don’t know whether to laugh or call CPS!
Witty and full of surprises this is a great read for anyone who has overcome parents that love you, in their own special way.
While some readers may be put off by the language or the ADHD jumps from one story to another, I found it all endearing and refreshingly honest. We all have those moments in our childhood that make or break us, author Justin Marciano just happened to have a book full of them.
I loved the humor, the emotion the honesty. My only complaint was the length, I wanted more!
