Michael Phillip Cash’s The History Major

I received this book courtesy of Mr. Cash for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

Overview: Amanda Green isn’t having the best morning. Really, it started with the fight she had with her boyfriend last night. Now, she seems to have a new room-mate, a new schedule, and a weird teacher of a course she wouldn’t be caught dead in. Why is she taking history? Why hasn’t Patrick called her? And who is that odd black-clad individual who keeps showing up? Maybe, she shouldn’t drink anymore?

Story Telling: I do believe this novella straddles the line between science-fiction and fantasy.

Likes: Amanda had a good relationship with her grandmother.

Patrick tried to bring the better woman out in Amanda’s personality. Too bad she didn’t seem to see that.

Dislikes: Danielle was a real brat. Oh boo-hoo, somebody didn’t acknowledge ‘her highness.’ She might be for a surprise. Life doesn’t work that way.

Structurally, I think this book should have had a few more chapters to tie up some loose ends. Or, Mr. Cash could have used a newspaper-like epilogue.

Favorite Character: It’s a toss-up between Nana and Patrick.

Favorite Quote: Patrick tried to warn Amanda. “I don’t like who you are when you’re with them.”

Favorite Scene: The ‘hide-and-seek’ game between Amanda and Nana was cute.

Conclusion: This book was very interesting, but it is a ‘niche’ book, so to speak. It will not be for everyone, especially the crowd that’s obsessed with ‘writing’ rules. I had fun with it.
