The bitter end to hatred…
The strife and struggles of dysfunctional families are seen everyday. There are, at times, those examples of success that provide hope and a silver lining to an otherwise bad situation. In “Poison Reality” we see the catastrophic damage caused by a few, the strong emotions stirred by love and the consequences brought about by decisions made from hate and anger.
Each Character in “Poison Reality” has their faults, worries, and shortcomings. Each also handles those aspects of their life differently; some through alcohol, some through violence and some through improving themselves as best they can. Ironically, it is through a violent act that one catches a glimpse of the life he could have had. But is it too late for him?
“Poison Reality” delves into the darkness surrounding dysfunctional families and the damaging effects those individuals have on people around them. All is not lost though as a sliver of hope and redemption shines through the shadows. Shorts-Nettles has developed a plot driven story that possess a certain emotional connectivity that we can all relate to. The surreal settings and events that follow each character of the story will tug at your heart, anger you and leave you thinking for after the last word.
“Poison Reality” is the debut novel by author Nedyne Shorts-Nettles. This emotional account of multiple individuals tied together by violence and insecurities strikes hard at the core of many fears we have for family members. I recommend this book to those who enjoy stories that engage the emotions by connecting with real life situations.
