A unique and engaging story that is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking. Author Matt Micros demonstrates an impressive skill at storytelling. The result is a story that will long linger in the mind and memory after being finished and set back upon the shelf. Very highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections, it should be noted that “Five Days” is also available in a Kindle edition ($3.99).
Perhaps the most unusual novel I have seen in a long time is Five Days: Which Days Would You Choose? by Matt Micros ($9.99, Micropulous Press, available at Amazon.com.) When 40-year-old Mike Postman rescues a drowning boy he allows himself to drown. Since he died a hero the angel Gabriel gives him a gift of choosing five days that he can relive. The book raises questions about life and death, suicide and the afterlife while raising questions about which five days you might relive if given the opportunity. Definitely offbeat, but it will appeal to some.
