Amazon Synopsis:

A man who thinks he is an alien finds himself in a mental institution. He has been visited by many doctors, but none of them were able to help him. The hospital has brought in a specialist to try to get some answers. This specialist is the top of his field and he may be able to unlock the secrets of the patient and be able to answer: Is he an alien, or simply a man seeking attention.

My Thoughts:

Terran Psychosis was an interesting twist on your usual “man in the insane asylum” story. Though the story was a short one at only 37 pages long, you are swept up into the story immediately.

It’s hard to say much without giving the story away but I can say that there are a few twists in the plot that you probably won’t expect. The author has been quite creative. The characters are interesting.

Knowing the issues the author faces with reading, writing, focus, memory and concentration due to post-concussion syndrome just adds to the impressiveness of the flow of the story. Only able to work for very short periods of time, this author was able to get a smooth flow to the story and a good pace that keeps you wanting to read to see what is going to happen next.

I did note several editing/grammatical errors that had been overlooked, but overall the story was quite well-written. The story was interesting and thought-provoking. I rated it 4 out of 5 stars.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.

Due to my disability, I am unable to hold a job. It makes life extremely difficult, but I find great hope in writing. I can honestly say that it has saved my life and prevented me from doing things that would be regrettable.

As a career, writing allows me to work at my own pace and set my own sechedule. For that, I am doing a Kickstarter campaign to try to release my upcoming series, Daygar Legacy. I want a chance at happiness with my limitations and I know I can give something to the writing community and readers. I want the chance to prove it. Please check out my campaign and if you can donate, it will be greatly appreciated, and whether you do or not, please share my campaign with your friends and family.
