    • Grounded in reality with elements of the supernatural, Flashover is a funny, touching and satisfying read This is not your typical mystery or thriller Nor can it sit squarely in science fiction, either It s a literary mash up, one that holds your attention, while at the same time, forcing you to pay attention You will be challenged, but that s a good thing The language is a mix of poetic lyricism and straightforward, hard boiled, no nonsense grit And just when you think the story is going to get [...]


    • So if you ve read any summaries of this book, you know that a guy named Tobe Mohr has a near death experience which leaves him with a interesting ability Having read that, you may think you know where the story is going the guy develops this ability into a power, and then uses this power to save someone in trouble, and at the end he comes to terms with his ability and finds a niche where he can live his life comfortably But that s not this story Flashover does not dwell on Tobe or his ability, b [...]


    • Click the image below to watch the quick Wordless Video Book Review This, Gordon Highland s second novel, contains all the quick pacing of an airport bestseller with the methodical attention to sentence structure and language of a high literary life s work Though the premise isn t earth shattering in its concept the author would tell you this himself the execution of the premise is absolutely unique Not much can be said here without spoiling, so I ll leave the official synopsis to speak for the [...]


    • Gordon Highland s Flashover came to my attention through Caleb J Ross video review Given Ross and myself are alumni of the same post secondary institute and Highland s close proximity to my house I decided to read the novel on my new Kindle My library needed something a little sexier than City of God and Treasure Island Flashover focuses on Tobe Mohr, a Kansas City based musician who develops the ability to see a person s memories through touch after a lightning strike not too dissimilar from Qu [...]


    • Call it time travel Call it disjointed narrative Call it a mystery A love story A comedy Tragi comedy Tragedy Flashover wears many masks and wears them well Tobe Mohr survived a freak accident that s left him with the ability to read people Not quite seeing their past or future, but understanding what they ve done It s a gift he uses reluctantly to get by in his recovery, one that eventually leads him on a road to discovering about the whereabouts of the woman he loved Like his previous work Ma [...]


    • I want to explain why I liked this story so much, but I really don t want to give any spoilers So I m going to start out with Just Read it Not only is the plot interesting, and filled with unpredictability, but the references to music and pop culture make this a fun story that keeps the reader paying attention so as not to miss a detail For me, there were two read worthy aspects to this story Obviously, the plot being one of those and that s what I can t talk about because you must experience th [...]


    • Gordon Highland s second novel is a surprise in many ways While you may be expecting something a little supernatural or fast paced without a great deal of character, the book quickly reveals that it has other plans It s actually a rather slow burn, delving into characters and backgrounds right from the start, and the story doesn t kick into high gear until around the halfway mark But the characters are endearing, and drive you to explore the tangle of events that brings them to the fated denoue [...]


    • This book has a lot of twists and turns It is hard to write a review of it without giving anything away A non linear timeline is used very well, which is saying something, because that sort of literary technique can backfire in a hurry Speaking of literary, Highland is a very literary writer, and at times you find passages are are art than storytelling, but these are generally used very well as part of the flash sequences Head on over to and check it out It s a good price for a good book.


    • I was highly impressed with this novel An excellent read from a very talented writer Flashover has a non linear plot told from different perspectives of the characters from diffferent points in their lives Highland pulls it all together gracefully without ever confusing you The book is very literary at times, but also has a dash of scifi thrown in, due to the lead characters ability to see into peoples past by touching them Also a love story, a mystery and a major crime are all mixed in I highly [...]


    • In Flashover we have a story about a man called Tobe Mohr who, through an almost fatal accident, has been given a gift to see into people s minds From his point of view though, it s nothing special He only sees what is already there He only sees what people already know It s just that, sometimes the people may not want to admit what they know to themselves or to others.Like most stories, it s a love story His love, she disappears one day His new mission is to find out where she went and why she [...]


    • Tobe Mohr, a guy dismissive of an unusual gift he receives after a near fatal accident fixing a church roof, is missing the love of his life Sera Throughout the narrative, his supernatural gift is downplayed considerably, which gives the story a healthy dose of realism His new ability seems almost natural an understandable bodily compensation for his loss of hearing, and whilst reading, I found myself constantly wondering just how much of it was Tobe s natural empathy intuition and how much of i [...]


    • DISCLAIMER I was provided a copy of the e book version in exchange for a review of this book.Tobe Mohr was a normal guy, with a normal job, and a normal future when he had the accident Now he s scarred, deaf, and clairvoyant The community sees his clairvoyance as a gift, Tobe isn t quite as sure A new living situation, compliments of the priest of the church where he had his accident, leads Tobe to a relationship with Sera and her daughter When they disappear from his life, Tobe s search for the [...]


    • This is high level stuff The prose, the characters, the dialogue, the plotting and tension building this book just fires on all cylinders Major Inversions was really well written, but this was much in my wheelhouse Major Inversions was of a black comedy, which isn t really my preferred genre, and I don t even know what genre you would put Flashover in, but it s a fantastic literary mashup that I absolutely loved It s very difficult to pull off technical, often lyrical prose that also flows eff [...]


    • Wow I have only just finished the book, and that s all my mind can form right now, but I ll give it a try Flashover is captivating, it s surprising and very very well written You don t get bored for half a sentence, you never know what to expect, but yet you re somehow always connected to the time frame of every sequence How I can t tell exactly, but you just know The story goes back and forth, but it s never chaotic It s never dull And the style that s some serious good writing right there I ha [...]
