Along the Watchtower by David Litwack is a great story for the lovers of fantasy type books. The main character Freddie Williams was VERY likable. When the Iraq war ends, Lieutenant Freddie Williams has experienced an IED explosion that left damage. I think the novel depicts the war well and believe me nothing too graphic. I think it will appeal to a wide variety of readers.
Unlike other stories relating to the war, this character is well rounded and you feel his dreams and reality. He was also a gamer and expert in virtual warfare which is a new concept to me. Once he wakes up things between real and fantasy are not clear. The blurred lines confuse him. The author does a great job here with the medical aspect too. With the rehab description including nurses I was fascinated it became a real page turner.
If you are not familiar with virtual games like World of Warcraft and Runes of Magic this will give you a little more to love. It is an adventure for sure! Between the rehab, the therapy and the reality I was drawn in. Great novel!
Using two fingers and lots of white-out, he religiously typed five pages a day throughout college and well into his twenties. Then life intervened. He paused to raise two sons and pursue a career, in the process becoming a well-known entrepreneur in the software industry, founding several successful companies. When he found time again to daydream, the urge to write returned. His novels include: There Comes a Prophet, Along the Watchtower, and the newly released The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky.
