Blurb

A saga de um jovem de espírito inquieto que, na busca de seu caminho, encontra-se diante de um novo "eu" desprovido de valores e de conduta questionável. Um novo "eu" descontrolado e perturbado que é submetido a um tratamento psiquiátrico duvidoso lhe revelando a pior e mais torturante fase da sua vida.

Prefácio

Prefácio


Antes de começar a escrever essa introdução, reli grande parte dos e-mails que trocamos - eu e o autor - sobre todas as revisões que fizemos, as alterações acertadas, os comentários detalhados; a fluidez, o tom, o peso. Senti-me apreensiva em alguns desses e-mails, relendo o que eu havia colocado, a emoção, a indignação, a revolta, as reações sobre certas situações ou sobre um personagem mais “exaltado”, ou “apático”, ou “irreal”.

O que ficou impresso na minha mente ao ler esse livro, nascido depois de um longo tempo e de muita dedicação, foi o quão familiares certas narrações pareciam e, ao mesmo tempo, quão impensadas e até surreais outras definitivamente eram! Muito se pode questionar conforme o leitor – eu, você – avança as páginas. Quem teve uma vida que não foi contada por nossos avós, que a contaram para seus filhos e que então chegou até nós? Qual vida é isenta da lembrança do passado e a da preocupação com o futuro? Qual pai não desejou o melhor para o filho – mesmo que o filho achasse que aquilo não é o melhor para ele? Por outro lado, como pode alguém buscar com tanta convicção seu objetivo maior, renunciar confortos e ultrapassar barreiras simples ou inimagináveis e, cedo ou tarde, deparar-se com a cegueira, a traição, a violência, o abuso e o abandono como recompensa? Peças desencaixadas. Descrições fortes. Cenas impensadas. Pessoas frias. Solidão.

O leitor será levado por momentos incríveis quando se identificar com boa parte das palavras que poderão remetê-lo à sua família, à sua infância e aos conselhos do seu próprio pai; ao longo da narrativa, será tomado por compaixão, indignação e revolta e se perguntará vez ou outra o que deu errado, o que foi perdido, onde foi o passo em falso.

Ao final, perceberá que o passo em falso sempre estava ali, ora evidente, ora oculto, mas sempre ali. O gatilho estava claro desde o início e foi alimentado, capítulo a capítulo, com pitadas de verdades chocantes e de circunstâncias utópicas. Intrigante? Vale a leitura para constatar.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

sunshinebennybear: First, I would like to address the elephant in the room. The author forgets her own character's names. She mixed up Liam for Jace, Harri for Maiya, and Freya for Clary. I love The Mortal Instruments as much as the next fangirl, but I find myself unforgiving about this. Throughout the story there ...

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.
