But what awaits them beyond the fringes of the city?
The Betelgeuse Oracle by Joseph Macchiusi
The Stone has a fanatical will of its own. What to say, what to say? The character development in this book is fairly good. The characters, although a lot of them are very unlikable, including James, seem realistic and have some depth to them. There are some good descriptions of events that occur and places the characters find themselves in. It drove me crazy. The grammatical mistakes alone made this book difficult to read and understand. I read the prologue several times trying to understand what in the world was going on.
I finally just moved on. And then I found James.

He is a very unlikable character. He has a bad attitude about everything, especially when he is at home with his wife and daughters. He joins a group of desperate strangers, united to escape a metropolis transformed into a burning, violent wasteland. But what awaits them beyond the fringes of the city? The further they get, the stronger is the painful tug exerted by the Voice on James's exhausted mind. As strangers grow into friends and lovers, James comes to realize that the thing called the Stone has a fanatical will of its own.

Even if he survives the trek, he may not be strong enough to match the Stone's baffling power. The Betelgeuse Oracle is a sweeping saga of loss and heroism, mysticism and visceral horror. Reading this novel will change the way you see the world. Try reading this beautifully written and gripping story and not have the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end, wondering, "What would I do?
A vision of what might happen to us all. The characters are vivid and compelling because they are real. They could be your best friends, the people you work with. Funny, disturbing. Not at all your run-of-the-mill fantasy.
New Release!! The MacDermots of Scotland - A Mysterious Highland Honeymoon
I was captured from the beginning, and found that I couldn't put it down. The character development is excellent, and speaks of a deep understanding of the human condition.
After reading this book, I'm drawn to what comes next - I want the next book! Macchiusi offers us a view of the triumphant human spirit. His description of the Kawarthas has such an impact that one will never look at "cottage country" the same way again.
The Mythology of the Night Sky
A haunting read. Images of it continue to dance in my mind. My current obsessions include Motorhead, the experiences of frontline soldiers during the First World War, and the pathological psychology of Ajax Quire.
Quire is the hero of another soon-to-be-published Macchiusi novel, Lurking in Plain Sight. Rating details. Book ratings by Goodreads.
