More About This Book

Overview

A Journey to Hell and Back: The Flip Side is the third text in author Charlotte Russell Johnson's series of motivational books. Ms. Johnson true to form has developed a surprisingly unique book. The two major characters alternate narration of the story. This literary technique serves to mesmerize and hold the reader spellbound. Two separate individuals on parallel descents into hell collide violently, the force of which serves as a catalyst to accelerate their demise. Then just as all visible signs of hope evaporate, in a surprising plot twist surpassing Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, the text evolves into a completely different direction.
The Flip Side expands on Dr. JohnsonÂ's previous text, A Journey to Hell and Back, an autobiographical account of the author's life. The Flip Side further explores the author's life, while also giving the parallel and sometimes contrasting account of Dr. JohnsonÂ's husband, Henry. The text begins with the lives of two separate individuals in preparation for their first encounter and then chronicles their following union. This book is appealing to a wide and varied audience, including those preparing for marriage, divorce, raising a family, or a part of a family, involved in or getting out of a relationship, recovering from past mistakes, parenting, or in contact with any of these groups. This book humorously pokes fun at life's everyday problems. The Johnsons provide unique and sometimes competing perspectives of their life together. The text provides an insightfully honest portrait of the differing perspectives of a married couple. The varying interpretations of major events serve to keep the reader enchanted with the text. After reading this text the reader will wonder how often they have misunderstood the intention of others. The Johnson's invite you to decide what is the actual truth. They say there are two versions of every story and then there's the truth.

    A Journey to Hell and Back: The Flip Side

    I was totally amazed that the Flipside could exceed Ms. Johnson original book a Journey to Hell and Back. I loved the way each chapter had two sides to give you a holistic view of their relationship. This book provides a different side of Ms.Johnson. I expected the infomation about Ms. Johnson to be redundant. Fortunately, I was wrong. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson have had very interesting lives. I recommended this book or those who like romance with realistic adventure.

    A Journey to Hell and Back: The Flip Side

    This was the third book I read by Ms. Johnson and thus far my favorite. I intend to read each of her books. I loved the unique format of the book. FIrst you hear one side of the story and then her husband's alternate version. Great book whether your married or not. I thought Ms. Johson life was interesting but her husband upbringing bored on tragic. It was easy to see the youg man was headed for the penal system at a yound age. Graphic depiction of life behind bars. Left me shocked and amazed without offering gruesome details.

    Must Read!!!!!!!!

    Every Christian should read this book! Ms. Johnson does a wonderful job intermingling her personal experiences and the Word of God in this book. She gives such vivid examples and analogies. The book was very well written and relates to today's problems!
