A Fresh Perspective

"Unless it has contact with something other than itself, the human animal soon becomes stale and mad. By giving us the freedom to see the world afresh, birds and animals renew our humanity." - John Gray

5.0 out of 5 stars!! Little Orphan Anvil, September 13, 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Orphan Anvil, September 13, 2011 !!!!!!

Amazon Verified PurchaseThis review is from: Little Orphan Anvil (Volume 1) (Paperback)
"In the Land of Iron and Anvil, the hard-labored men and women lived and worked among massive metal and steel structures, building giant machines for mining and drilling in the dormant volcanoes to the south. It was in these volcanoes that they searched for the secrets of this technology that would bring metal to life." From the Prologue.

I heard about this book on Facebook and after reading some excerpts, decided to purchase. Robots coming to life reminded me of Hal in 2001 Space Odyssey. This imaginative tale will keep most readers spellbound, and i was hooked from the first sentence of Chapter 1. I enjoyed the religious overtones, though they may have been unintentional.

Joseph Beekman weaves a tale of intrigue, suspense, laughter and jubilation in a book that one would be hard-pressed to find any grammatical errors. Writing with a Stephen Kingish style, Beekman's story will hold your interest until the very end. My only disappointment was the length of the book, which left me too quickly wanting more. Can't wait to read Volume 2. http://www.amazon.com/Little-Orphan-Anvil-1/dp/1460979796/
