Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite Rick Robinson’s latest novel “Alligator Alley” will leave you pondering about the course your life is on and leave you thinking about true happiness in life. James has had a successful life; however, he is fifty years old and feel empty inside. James decides to spend some time alone in an area that will help him revive some memories from his childhood. James interacts with individuals who help him and guide him along on his journey as well as helping him feel more alive. As James is on this journey, he discovers more about himself and life. He also learns what he wants the rest of his life to be like and takes a plunge into making changes. “If you could change, would you?” This is a fascinating and thoughtful question this book is based upon. James is faced with this question and he also asks his lover this very question. Many of us are unhappy in our lives or say and believe that we are; however, when given that chance and choice to change, do we take it? Would we really change or is it safe and easy not to change? This book is written in such a way that the reader is carried on this journey with James and lost in his world. This is an inspiring book to read and I highly recommend this to adults. I am glad to state that it is thought-provoking and is an eye-opener.
