I had absolutely no problem becoming involved within Elizabeth Parker's story nor did I have a problem meeting and emphasizing with “Phobia’s” main character, Matt Brewer.



 

                                        My Review of   Elizabeth Parker’s “Phobia”.

 

I’m actually a pretty simplistic kind of a guy and in order for me to enjoy a book I must be able to get into the story rather quickly. Also, I must become involved with the characters, be they good or bad characters.

 

I had absolutely no problem becoming involved within Elizabeth Parker's story nor did I have a problem meeting and emphasizing with “Phobia’s” main character, Matt Brewer.

 

A seventh grade public school science teacher, we very quickly learn of Matt’s phobia, or actually his two phobias: Claustrophobia – the intense fear of being confined in small places and Nyctophobia – fear of the dark, along with the childhood prank that caused Matt Brewer’s life-long phobias.

 

Along the way we meet the love of Matt’s life that holds a very dark, deadly secret herself.

 

Once convinced that he is in need of therapy, we are introduced to some interesting, truly sympathetic characters each with their own brand of phobia along with the reasons for their phobias.

 

Midway through the story takes a “James Patterson” type of twist that left me reading and turning pages as fast as I could.

 

In my opinion “Phobia” is an exciting, extremely well researched, interesting and enjoyable novel and do reccomend it to our fellow Authors Den authors.
