In the late seventies, Donato, a man growing up in rural Oregon becomes obsessed with finding the intangible by climbing mountain peaks. This quest for cosmic knowledge borders on the twilight zone and is driven by karma floating on a river of nostalgia. His spirit guide, a knee-high cane toad accompanies him in a surreal journey around the world until he accidentally finds what he is looking for in the deepest gorge in North America.

Nagah and the ThundereggGrab your shades, your tie-dyed T shirts and sandals, we are off on a spiritual journey of one young man seeking truths to a life he doesn’t understand. Raised in isolation by bohemian parents, often left to his own machinations, seems to live life in a bubble of his own making, Trained as a Navy Seal, instead of tales of the horrors of war or how any of this affected him, he has retained the acronyms for each training segment. As he matures and continues his quest for spiritual enlightenment the rest of life seems to roll past as if on a screen, he never seems to actually participate often. Has he found his spiritual self? Does it lie in the unknown and the unseen or unfathomable or in the almighty dollar that he never had?

Nagah and the Thunderegg by Darrell Mulch starts out with great promise, as we meet Donato, see the life he leads and are invited into the chaotic hurricane that is his brain. Rather choppy and non-dimensional, events, places and thoughts begin coming at the reader from all directions although they are representative of the linear lifeline he is experiencing. If Darrell Mulch is expressing the chaos of life and living, he has nailed it! There is a constant hum of vibrations just too far off to truly become solid thoughts or to develop into a three dimensional tale. Although I see a huge potential for so much more from this tale, it just wasn’t for me, although I am sure many will enjoy it completely if you give it a try.

I received this copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
