Luke Marusiak's novel takes the reader on the paths of twin brothers, John and Tom. You will be captivated by the author's style which incorporates many references to literature and life; you cannot help but start to reminisce about your own journey in life and the choices you have made. This is a great book for new grads or anyone who enjoys contemplating the many paths and experiences one might take in life or have taken. This book will stay with you long after you have finished with the last page.
Marx and Ford is a story about the continuous cycle of life and the complexity that exists in all of us. John and Tom represent the apparently conflicting natures that reside inside each of us, each dominating and then receding like the passing of the seasons. Like the unifying string theory, there are parallel paths each of us can take, each originating at the same point, diverging and then sometimes intersecting again. The soldier/scholar author captures all this under the backdrop of hopes & dreams, successes & failures, birth & death, love & hate and remorse & acceptance while navigating through an eclectic mix of philosophical thought as diverse as Dante's Inferno & Paradise Lost, 1984 & Brave New World and Atlas Shrugged all the way to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Repair! A good read which will take you on a fascinating journey of life's questions that we all have or will face. Highly recommended.
