Most Helpful Customer Reviews
J C Howell has methodically, through a story of love and forgiveness, given us hope that true peace and happiness or Sentio is achievable. It inspires us to look deeply at the Intent and language of life. This masterpiece is a celebration of the author’s intense study of all the great thinkers who have helped us understand our true meaning.
This heavily philosophical novel is thought-provoking and truly unique. Anyone interested in existentialism (and its limits) will be intrigued by author J.C. Howell's notions of "strange love" and "sentio" consciousness, and readers with little knowledge of philosophy will find the book both interesting and highly informative (in the vein of, for instance, "Sophie's World"). In "Sentio," Howell skillfully marries the intellectual and the emotional - and the result is a novel that is both strange and lovely.
