Ciao, amici! I’m ashamed to admit how long this one took me to post. And wish it hadn’t. Because I enjoyed it so much once I finally had a chance to sit down with it and read it.
The following is my review of John Howell’s Eternal Road: The Final Stop.
Talk About A Wild Ride
Author John W. Howell took the concepts of “the road to our eternal home” and “our final stop” quite seriously when he penned this afterlife journey novel. And it was an adventure quite unlike anything I’ve read in quite a long time—kind of Kerouac meets What Dreams May Come.
There’s love and hope in this novel, but there’s also danger and warning. The paranormal and metaphysical elements are necessary vehicles for the story, but the author doesn’t turn the tale into a religious one. It’s definitely an adventure.
The characters of Sam and James are well-developed and engaging, and the times and places they visit are equally fascinating.
If you’ll forgive the pun, this story was well worth the ride.
I happily give this tale five stars.
