Not long ago on a trip to a used book store I came across "High on Arrival." I had been waiting years to read it, ever since I saw it on Oprah over a decade ago. I know, I know but I was intrigued by the book. So I grabbed it up when I saw it sitting on that shelf.
I just finished reading “The Devil’s Labyrinth” by John Saul. It’s only taken me approximately two years to complete since life kept interrupting. Actually my return to school coupled with still attempting to make a living and COVID-19 causing a world wide shutdown interrupted my ability to read the book.
It’s rather unusual for me, it is set in Boston or rather a Catholic School in Boston for the majority of the book. Evil is found in the form of a priest proving things aren’t always what they seem to be. Instead of exorcism of evil he essentially placed evil into three students all in hopes of killing the current pope. His plan backfired but it brought an important lesson to light.
Shit happens Things are not always as they appear and trusting your instincts can go a long way to saving your life and those around you. A young boy lives with his widowed mother and doesn’t care for his mom’s new boyfriend. Turns out that even though his mom didn’t believe him the boy was right. In the end the truth came out, but in the real world it doesn’t always.
In the book a near tragedy made the woman realize that her son was right the entire time. What about in real life when you meet someone and think they are amazing only to discover that they are not what you thought? What happens when the one you trusted puts your life in danger? What about when you are the only one who sees evil until something disastrous happens?
There are no clear answers to these questions until you live it. Until then you can only do what you think is best. Good day, and good reading.
