Guest Review by J.L.Clayton: Night People by Larry J. Dunlap

NIGHT PEOPLE, the first book in an intimate literary memoir, follows the first three of six years in the life of a young singer and his Midwestern friends as they strive for success in a coming-of-age music and romance-filled journey in 1960’s-era California and Las Vegas by Author Larry J. Dunlap.
So a friend of mine told me about this book: Night People. She said I would love it, yet I was skeptical because I’m not a nonfiction reader. However; my friend has really good taste in books so I gave this one a try. I’m very happy I did. Night People is a wonderful book, I found myself forgetting that it was a biography. It reads like a fictional book, so it was a very easy read for me. I never lost interest. Author Dunlap is such a beautiful writer. I found myself lost in the book, as if I was watching a really good movie. If you can make me forget that I was reading a biography and take me to that imaginary place, than you did a brilliant job. Bravo! I’m looking forward to reading your next book. 5ūüĆü

Guest Review by JL Clayton: 101 Questions for Humanity: Coffee Table Philosophy by J. Edward Neill

101 Questions for Humanity, by Author J Edward Neill, is just what the title proclaimed: Questions for humanity. It’s actually very fascinating. These are questions you might, or might not, have thought about. I found myself answering them as I read along, which I’m sure was the author’s intent. This, in my opinion, could be a little question game you play on the road, or with friends, to get to know someone’s take on life and what they value. There’s one question that asked: “Two fires are raging. You can rush into one house and save your child. Or you can rush into the other and save 100 people. Which house?”

I am a mother, I love my child more than anyone or thing. My answer would be my child.
These are the kind of¬†in-depth questions you will be asked in this book. If it wasn’t for the fact that I am a fan of Author Neill’s and that the book was free, I wouldn’t have seen myself purchasing it. Yet, I loved the questions that are asked. I’m going to use them on some of my friends and family. This, to me, is the ultimate in-depth questions game: To know someone’s deep dark feelings
