New Normal by Jeffrey Ricker

Review: The ideas are simply presented and easy enough most any reader could visualize them: a person waking up disoriented after having died. I somehow found the tenses used a little strange, as sometimes it seems a memory, then at others, as if scenes were presently happening to the main character. The character was somewhat confused after their reawakening so descriptions understandably evidenced this.

The idea is interesting, yet it seemed to me like grasping for what you believe is solid or that a solidity will eventually occur, but it still only flows like water through your fingers.

I felt it was designed to make a reader think about how they would feel, what they might do if presented with a similar situation and in that, I felt it succeeded. The “New Normal” is an excellent tale that could be expanded into a longer story or novel, a sequel of sorts, as  it is an extremely thought provoking topic.

Book Description: What if doctors were able to transplant your mind into a new body after a terrible accident? What if, thanks to the process, you found you could no longer love the person you were with or live your old life? What would become your new ‘normal?’
