My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes you come across a book that makes you sit up and take notice from the very beginning. Random Lucidity by Dave Adair is one of those books. The title grabbed my attention right away. Then I was introduced to characters so true to life I felt as if I knew them personally. Reggie Hatcher is young and idealistic; an aspiring literary agent, in love with Meghan, and devoted son of Ronnie. When he meets the strange Jerry Travers and his sociopathic “caretaker” Rita Miserly he thinks he has found the golden goose. Jerry, the idiot savant with the writing skills of Stephen King, comes into Reggie’s life at the most opportune moment. Thus begins the story within a story that knocked me off my feet. The transitions between Reggie’s life and Jerry’s story are handled so smoothly you feel as though you are living it. As Reggie deals with the various crises that erupt around him you see him developing as a person. His moments of clarity are like a bright shining light that made me want to cheer for him. A gripping thriller with enough twists and turns to keep you turning pages, the story builds to an unexpected climax. If you only read one book this year, this is the one you should choose.
