I have read hundreds of books in my time, seen and critiqued their screen versions and even commenced writing one of my own. However, recently I have come about reading a book written by someone very dear to my heart and discovering the absolute genius of the writer.
I am of course talking about the series of books about the galactic adventures of Alex Mackenzie written by my very talented partner Larry Rosenzweig. The books are gripping yet funny, packed with many twists and turns. Incredible imagination and unique writing style is what makes these books magnificent. Although the target audience is between 9 and about 14, I am thoroughly enjoying them.
I am yet to finish reading the whole series, as finding spare time to read has been an issue. However, the more I read, the more I am immersed in the creative world and the double life of the main character and all the wonderful creatures he meets in his travels. Although the books are self-published, I believe they are destined for greatness and success. The next bestseller? I definitely hope so, as these books deserve to be read by all children to invigorate their imagination.
Copies of the books are now available on Amazon as ebooks, so if you are interested – buy yourself a copy of the first book (here is the link – http://www.amazon.com/Journey-Galactic-Adventures-McKenzie-ebook/dp/B00CMX5ABM/ref=pd_rhf_cr_p_img_1). I promise you will be asking for more. The other books in the series are also available as ebooks on Amazon. However, if you are like me and love to hold the real book when you are reading it, a copy can be found on http://larryrosenzweig.com.au/.
It is always hard to find a great book to read, especially a great book that would interest children. C.S.Lewis once said that “a children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.” I recommend you read “The Galactic Adventures of Alex Mackenzie” series of books. One day they will be more famous than the Harry Potter series and you could say that you were ahead of the pack.
