Book Review: Desperately Seeking Epic





Desperately Seeking Epic
by B.N. Toler


Paul James loved Clara Bateman.
Hating her would have been easier.
She was the past, and he was hell-bent on keeping her there.
Or so he thought...

Craigslist Ad: DESPERATELY SEEKING EPIC

You’re my father.
I don’t know much about you. I know your name is Paul James, you’re a thrill seeker, and once upon a time you did stunts and people called you ‘Epic.’
I’ve been told you don’t know about me. That it’s complicated.
But for me it’s simple.
Here’s the thing: I’m twelve years old…and I’m dying.
And as much as this could crush my mother, I have to meet you before I go.
In time, I’m sure she’ll understand. She’s still in love with you.
So, Epic, if you read this, please come back. You don’t have to be my dad. You don’t even have to tell me you love me or you’re sorry. Just come see me.

Patiently waiting, but running out of time,

Neena

Lori's thoughts: ***ARC received in exchange for an honest review***

Very well written and although I really liked the story, I didn't completely love it. The whole time I was reading the book, I kept thinking I'd heard the story before. The Craig's List idea was a pretty unique idea and a great way to begin the story. There were some things about the story that bothered me, like the fact that Neena's mother, Clara, could have and should have tried a little harder to let Paul know he had a daughter.

Other than that, I'm not going to give anything away. It's a very good story, very touching and wonderfully written. If you want to read a book with a whole lot of feels, this is the one for you.
