The Fallows: Believe In Love by Aaron Ross

One man goes on a quest to find his lost love facing not only the gods themselves but also humanity and the forces of nature. In a spiritual adventure the man inspires not only the gods but also the people of the earth to save the world from global warming, war, famine, disease, and abuse. Together the gods and mankind join hands to call forth the evils of the world back into Pandora’s box, which was once released into the world by the mighty Zeus because Prometheus stole fire from Mount Olympus and gave it to man. I wish not to overwhelm the readers by stretching their consciousness beyond the boundaries of their own reason. But for you to gain the most out of your reading experience of The Fallows, you must know that I have worked hard to speak to its readers on three different intellectual levels. And I hope that you will enjoy this book, for in truth I cried tears with every line of poetry that was written, and it’s no lie: The Fallows was truly a remarkably healing experience for me as I hope that it will be as much a healing experience for you. The first intellectual level in which The Fallows speaks is primarily a poetic story. It is a tale about a man who was born into the world without knowing his true family, and after his quest to find them, he comes home to find he has lost the only woman that he loves. In metaphorical language, the man goes into the forest to call upon the birds of the air for love, symbolically representing humanity as John the Baptist in the Bible was once weeping in the wilderness. In the forest he is met by the great phoenix, and he is sent out on a quest to save the earth, and if he accomplishes the phoenix’s quest, the birds of the air will gather to find his love. Left alone and hungry after the phoenix and his kin fly away, the man eats a poisonous flower and perishes, representing the fall of humanity, as Adam and Eve once ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, bringing death and sin into the world. From this point on of this great story, you are left on your own to discover The Fallows; it is a great story about man’s love for woman and woman’s love for man and the love they have for their child and the gods, but most importantly it is about their love for the earth. I do not wish to ruin the rest of the story before you have had the chance to read it yourself, so I will not reveal any more of its major themes. The second intellectual level in which the book speaks is found in the allegorical messages written in the poem that are in reference to my walk across America for love, inspiring the people of the world to unite their strengths, hearts, and resources to heal the earth, which provides for us all. When the sunset rises in New York from the east, early in the morning I will fill a jar with water from the Atlantic Ocean to be carried across America in my backpack to be dumped into the Pacific Ocean in California exactly while the sun is setting over the west. The jar poetically represents Pandora’s box of evils that have been released into the world. What most people don’t know is that it was not Pandora’s box at all which was opened but a jar that was opened because of her curiosity. Thus Pandora’s jar is what was opened to release the evils into the world; the only spiritual force left in the jar was hope. The ancient poems written about Pandora in the past speak of a clay jar that was opened, not a box. Pandora’s box does sound better than Pandora’ jar, but in all actuality there is still a debate over the issue because there are also references to a box. Which one is the truth, we unfortunately may never know. I am walking across America for love and for all lovers that ever were and for all lovers that will ever be to add more emotional charge to the words of love in this poem for all times dedicated to lovers forever and eternal. Because actions will forever speak louder than words. I have read that great writers in the past would go on walks through the e

the most absolutely pointless book i`ve ever read...honestly, i am completely disappointed, as i usually finish books i commit myself to reading....this one however, leaves me not wanting to turn to the next page. no clear sense of storyline, no clear sense of setting or characters.....wondering what makes this book such an epic poem as the author claims.

I read part of this book to see if it was interesting. I did not enjoy it at all. This book does not seem to have any real point to it at all. The introduction from the author is ridiculous....he goes on and on for awhile about the deeper meanings hidden within the pages....as if it were some magical and powerful story. It however, leaves one to ponder if the author is actually serious....or completely insane. I would not pay 50 cents for this crap, let alone 26 dollars for a hardback copy. I don`t usually have such harsh things to say about things i read or purchase, however, this book should never have made it to the printing press.....there are spellling errors, and other grammar problems...it seems very very very unprofessional......like someone scrawled down a bunch of stuff trying to sound poetic....and miserably failing in that process. Please take this book of your site barnes and noble......and do us all a favor. I`m used to receiving quality products from your online store.....this just doesn`t make the cut.

I would very much enjoy if the writer of this book would stop writing and would stop calling themselves a writer. Anybody can write nonsense but as far as I am concerned that does not mean they are a writer. Greek gods and christian religion? They don't seem to mix. Who wants to read a poem this long and not only that its garbage! Incorrect English! Wow didn't you edit it or reread it. I could write a better story about a man dying from AIDS in complete darkness who is deaf blind and dumb. Do not buy or read this you will regret it and not even a little bit. You will wonder how it is possible for somebody to serious write something like this and then think it should be published ! And to top it off to charge around 30 dollars! Madness! I would like to watch a pile of these books burn! And all who dared to look at the vomit contained within the pages of the fallows would rejoice at the sight of the flames knowing they will never see the dreaded books again! I wish I could give a lower rating!!

this book must be a cruel joke of some sort....all the book does is go on one big long rant so its a very long and very bad poem...no clear sense of plot, nor any sense of the characters, their personalities etc. Very confusing because there are huge meaningless rants that do not implore the reader to turn the page. very hard to grasp what is actually takning place again seems more like someone trying to souns poetic and failing miserably....the book didn`t seem to be about anything the sleeve said it would be about.....the author seems spiritually confused as religion meets legend, meets scientology. i don`t recommend this book to anyone.

this is one of, if not the worst book i have ever come across in my entire lifetime. I utterly cannot believe this book was even published. it likely was never even proofread or edited before it was printed. not only does this book have grammatical errors and misspellings gallore, but it really makes no sense either. did someone feel bad for the author, because they were mentally challenged and print the book for them to be a good samaritan? one can only speculate. However, if you do decide to buy this crap be warned, you`re buying crap....its a big stinking load of crap.

The Fallows! Watch Out! Let the readers decide for them selves, I know your a reader but you don't even give others a chance! The interesting thing is no one really knows about this book yet, why such bad reviews. Even popular books that suck don't get this many bad reviews. Something is very suspicious about these negative comments. I have cried so many times after reading this book. I don't even know how you could say such negative things about The Fallows. I think you need to let the people who read this book write a review and give them a chance to read something that is truly authentic. And another thing you both have horsey in your user name. What does that mean? Ha! Ha! Ha!
