Présentation de l'éditeur

Jake - at least he thinks that's his name - wakes up in an empty house, stark naked, with no idea how he got there. In fact, he can't even remember his past. He's heard of people showing up in odd places with amnesia, but it quickly becomes clear, that's not the case. He's either in heaven, or hell, or some place in between. He only remembers his life one event at a time, so as to deal with left-over issues. Things happen, some beautiful, others to open his eyes. It's a chance to get things right.

Heaven or hell - whatever - the experience of it begins in the same place. To quote a reader's review, "...If you've read and like C. S. Lewis's book "The Great Divorce", you'll enjoy this book..."

More Random Readers' Comments:
"...I was so involved that I could not put the book down. It is definetly a book you find yourself in..."
"...This story made me to pause my life and have a look at what we are doing at the moment..."
"...strange, but well written. It made me think about things I hadn't thought about in a long time..."
"...Worst book ever. I hated the whole thing. Don't buy it unless you're a Jesus freak. Terrible. Awful book, really bad..."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Between Heaven and Hell Lies Allegory 17 juin 2011
Par E. Kennen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Imagine waking up in a place that could be the house of your dream, except it's completely empty, you're completely naked, and you don't quite remember who you are. That is what happens to the protagonist of Robby Charter's ALLEGORY.
He's in the body of a 13-year old, even though he seems to know adult things. And he's very, very confused. The world outside is a clutter of houses as far as the eye can see, separated haphazardly by mud. In this mud, the children of the strange world dig for nourishment: worms, mostly. Everyone is weak and starved, dirty and distrustful. Well, almost everybody that is.

Turns out if you pray and share what little you have with others, you will get more: a peach, perhaps, or running water. But it's hard to feel a sense of grace in such a desperate place... Then there's the jolt, that moment when your childhood innocence leaves to be replaced by a soul-twisting cynicism.

Though it is not obvious at first, ALLEGORY is a nondenominational (perhaps anti-denominational) Christian novel teaching acceptance, forgiveness, and that the road to heaven is not as easy as it might seem - but infinitely more rewarding. Doubtless the fact that this is Christian will turn it off from some people, and the particular theological stances Charters takes might rub the wrong way on some Christians, but that doesn't change it from being a quick, thought-provoking read.

There are some strange aspects to this book: everyone is naked at first, though platonically so. Yes, the N-word is used, but not gratuitously. The most disturbing thing to me was a line about 3/4 of the way the book explaining the actions of a pedophile: "He has a deep love for children, but during his life on Earth, he let it express itself in the wrong way." While it is true that many pedophiles are nonviolent, I cannot find it in me to believe that what they do has anything to do with love. Despite this (and that did leave a bad taste lingering in my mouth for quite a while), the book is fast-paced, interesting, and has a good message.

As can be expected of a self-published book, there are a few typos and grammatical issues (for instance Charter tends to use exclamation marks instead of question marks), but this does not detract too much from the book. His writing style is short (his paragraphs are typically one or two sentences long) and occasionally choppy, and every once in a while the dialogue comes out a bit stilted, but altogether he has created an interesting novel that is worth mulling over. It made me feel like working harder to be a better person. That alone is worth the price (!), and your time.

Wow...if you have ever wondered what happens after we die, then check out this book. I found the way the author takes everything we "think" we know and ties it all together to be very original and enlightening. My only complaint is the length of the story. There is so much potential here to flesh out a full length novel. If you have a couple hours and are looking for something to read, give this a chance.

5 stars from me - job well done Mr. Charters!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 allegory of something else 3 juin 2012
Par Michael A. Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Allegory seems an allegory of the Catholic doctrine of Purgatory. A rather good one too. The characters learn in a place between Heaven and Hell to pray, repent, do good deeds and so on to be let into the City up ahead. I was surprised, however, when the last scene negates this, stating it is about the need for Christians to do these things in this life. Which is surprising. The main part gives the impression that Christ's salvation is useless, or at least insufficient unless we do these works. Salvation by faith will not save you, as one character who believed and didn't go through the whole discipleship regimen was seen in hell, even though some he lead to Christ got to go through the Purgatory. The last scenes do not erase this impression. The author seems to be a Protestant of some sort, yet Protestant theology insists that holiness and sanctification come from Christ, and are not from our own works.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The right title for a creative story 1 août 2011
Par S. Warfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Anyone familiar with Christian doctrines and tenets will see where this story is going early on. Also, if you know even a little about Messianic Judaism, Aaron's story and actions will be clear in the latter part.

It becomes clear what is going to be the foundation of this novella when the narrator first helps Becky, the skinny, dirty little girl who digs in the mud for food, mainly worms and sometimes slugs. Her source of water is mainly sucking it out of the mud. All of the inhabitants of the place where the children wake up in their houses are naked and can't remember what has happened to them. Slowly throughout the story, memories come back to them and they realize what has happened. At first there is no food, no water and no clothing, and the houses aren't furnished and they must sleep on the hard floors. The narrator figures out that by praying and praying hard, he begins to get a trickle of water from the taps in his house, and eventually a piece of fruit shows up in a basket in the kitchen. The first piece he eats, the second he gives to little Becky, who hasn't had real food in a long time. He invites Becky to come to his house and runs enough water in the bathtub for her to bathe, since she is a mess of mud and matted hair.

As he continues to pray for help for these other children, he receives help in more abundance. The narrator knows that the more he helps others, the more will be given to him to help other children. Many of the children don't like the way they look now, being dirty and skinny, but since our narrator likes to draw, he does portraits of them that show them in a new light, and as he sees them, not necessarily the way they see themselves. His drawings help them to like themselves better.

The story is rather complicated after a while, but the one thing it does stress is the power of forgiveness and helping to save others from their own self-loathing. The n-word is used, not derisively but to show what another boy has done and said in his life and that he can be forgiven. Aaron the Jew can forgive the Neo-Nazi's hatred. There is much interaction among characters that allow for understanding, forgiveness and love.

There is much more in this story and there is a nice little twist at the end. I enjoyed the story and it gives much to think about. As another reviewer said, it made me more conscious of how I am living out my beliefs and trying to be a better person. It is strictly religious in tone and story and for readers who don't like the genre, it might prove too much to read all at once. If you're open to such things, it is a very good allegory.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Very confusing 30 octobre 2011

I must say this book had me so confused. I really do not understand this description of what "Heaven" is about. I have not read anywhere in the Bible a description of a place like this. There is a good lesson to the story but it is too weird.
