TBR Featured Review

The most unique sci-fi novel I’ve read in years.

What happens when the world gets too optimized? Joel E. Lorentzen, the author, answers that question in his unique, inventive and thought-provoking novel, Proles - a novel about 2084. In the not too distant future, the gap between the have’s and the have nots is as wide as it has ever been, but not for the reason you may think.

It's all in Your Head
 It's all in Your Head

Maria McCutchen did not have time to be sick.  With a husband who had just lost a job, two young sons, and a cross-country move on the horizon, who had time to be sick?  Maria didn't have time for a common cold, let alone a major medical condition.  But one day while shopping in the grocery store where she had shopped hundreds of times before, she couldn't find the milk.  It was then that she knew what she was feeling was more than just stress or exhaustion.  There was something very wrong.

After consulting a few doctors, Maria discovered she had a rare brain cyst known as a posterior fossa arachnoid cyst - a very large brain cyst.  Hearing these cysts were normally asymptomatic was of little comfort, especially because she felt her mind and body slipping away more every day.  Normal mental and physical functions were becoming harder to control.  Even if the doctors didn't believe the cyst was a problem, she knew it was.

It would take months of living inside a shell of a person that she'd become, months of living in a mental fogginess and sometimes even physical pain, before she would finally get the medical attention she needed.  "It's all in Your Head" chronicles her harrowing medical odyssey and her attempts to regain some sort of semblence of her old life after treatment.
