Got you, didn't I?
No, this post has nothing to do with my struggles with mental health.

Actually, it's a review of the latest opus from Robyn Engel, she of the Life By Chocolate: Robyn Alana Engel's Blog on, duh, Blogger (hopefully you already knew that it's on Blogger. If not, WTH are you doing here? Looking for porn?).
|"Search for porn."|
Oh, who am I kidding? More like five minutes.
Anyway, back to Robyn. Okay, first off, the title of her newest book is NOT Insanity. Rather, it's InSanity. The reason I used the spelling that I did was that I wanted to draw the two of you in to see what crazy ass shit I was putting out this time. You see, I employed a classic "bait and switch" technique to suck you in.
|"Suck us in? So there is porn?"|
"Raht. Porn. Let's go, Brandon!"
Robyn is one of those authors who I like to call...talented. She is much more talented, and better looking, than I, you understand. She weaves a serious tale (on mental illness. Please keep up. Especially you two on the porch) which is bracketed by lighthearted observations of the, ahem, insanity, which is the hallmark of our existence on this crazy place we call Earth.
|"Shit. I would've called it 'Water.' But...whatever. |
Have to change all the maps, though."
Her writing style (and I'm quoting myself) reminds me of lot of the writing style of Steven King. Only without dead things, telekinesis, killer cars, or buck teeth.
|"Not a little hurtful."|
NOTE: Now you know why Steven King keeps his mouth closed a lot.
When you're done with this excellent work you will have arrived at a much better understanding of the demons of mental illness, specifically suicide. Robyn pointedly...uh, points out...(please excuse the clumsy wording. I couldn't think of anything better. I told you she was a better writer than I) that people don't commit suicide. Neither are they selfish.
She also talks about something called Viagra Ice Cream. So, there's that.
|"Mmmmmmmm......viagra ice cream......"|
The best part of this book? I learned some things and was entertained at the same time. And, that my friends, is the mark of an outstanding writer.
Do yourself a favor and get this book (or any the others which she has written over the years). You'll be glad you did.
InSanity is available on Amazon. When you get there, type in Robyn Engel" and, like magic, you'll go right to where you want to be.
For every ten books sold, a complimentary shipment of dental floss will be sent to Steven King.
