Meet the Author

James Eddy was born in Braintree, Essex in April 1980. After moving first to Colchester, Essex, the family settled in South Norfolk and James was able to enjoy the wide open spaces and quiet of the area which fed his imagination. Following an undistinguished University career, he began writing scripts for films and acting out the cliche of the drunken writer. He diversified by moving into prose and eventually focussed enough to write a collection of Short Stories called 'Diamonds' along with several other short stories a novel and novella. He released 'Bewilder', the first story from 'Diamonds' in April 2012.

    beautiful but tragic *spoiler alert*

    this short story is written in the perspective of a friend of the main character (i wish this was explained a bit better in the beginning, though).

    he tells the story of his friend Neil. Neil had a very hard childhood and grew up in a very abusive home. to survive, he would disassociate and created his own world in which he could get away. ((it's a common coping method for children that have come from severe abuse of any kind.)

    Neil finds love on a subway/train.

    one day a mutual friend of the narrator/friend telling the story and Neil dies and Neil is lost. This friend had meant a lot to Neil. when he gets home from the funeral his love is gone without a trace.

    the narrator worries this was all just another world Neil created that was shattered the day their friend died.

    The narrator goes with Neil back to the train where he first saw her and the bar where they became friends and they soon find that the bar has been closed up for years and it's confirmed it was just another coping-world Neil created.

    the narrator helps Neil get professional mental help. The narrator reveals he is a song writer/performer and at the end he says he has written a song about what really happened to Neil's love, but says he never will perform it or publish it because it's bad and also it's their story, Neil and Marie.

    It's hard to read if you've been a child that has survived severe abuse and if you know far too well where Neil is coming from and the worlds you escape to just to be able to survive.

    i wish some more details were left in and some more development so the beginning is slightly less confusing but overall this is a beautiful story but it's also sad and heartbreaking.

    I definitely recommend it.

    A Bit Confusing

    This book was hard to follow, and the ending was very unsatisfying.
