"Truly Unique. I've never read anything like this before!" is one comment made about Morrie Richfield’s debut novel “Mr Breeze”. But as we heard during today’s “A Book and a Chat” it is so much more than that.
Phrases like “Imperfect, controversial and sure to ruffle some feathers (did mine) but a brilliant piece of writing” and ““ I have never read anyhting like this before"litter the reviews gained by “Mr Breeze”.
Morrie Richfiled has wanted to publish a book since the age of fourteen however with a background of limited education this never really happened until when his world was at a very low level he decided this was the moment to let his thought take over and the novel be created.
A year later and “Mr Breeze” was created. Not your normal style of book, there are no chapters it is one continual text, written in a simple and direct style, but this short book holds a powerful, perhaps even controversial message.
About “Mr Breeze” (Taken from Gather.com)
Mr. Breeze is a story that challenges beliefs: About God, religion and human behavior. Author Morrie Richfield’s first novel provides a view of the world through the eyes of a photojournalist and a man who is doing incredible deeds across the United States. In the book, Richfield reveals the frailty of humankind as well as the responsibility we all have to each other.
Michael Ryan is a freelance photojournalist with twenty years of experience in his field who has decided to stop chasing negative stories. His new focus is to report on stories of people helping each other. As Michael and his researchers track incidents from across the country, a common thread arises: One man has been a participant in helping several people in miraculous ways. After interviewing journalists who admitted off the record that the stories they filed did not include the man bringing a child back to life or saving and healing a bus load of elderly passengers after a bus accident, Michael decides that this is the story he must follow. The man has not been identified. All pictures that have been taken of him somehow failed to record his image. Michael decides to find the mysterious good Samaritan. As it turns out, the man who calls himself Mr. Breeze chooses Michael to write his story.
Once Michael makes contact with Mr. Breeze, he joins him in a journey that involves making major medical discoveries and providing invaluable assistance to law enforcement. As he travels with Mr. Breeze, Michael struggles with understanding who his companion is and how he is able to do so many amazing things.
Already optioned for a movie and with a follow up in the work, this book will be a must read for many people.
It is as one reviewer put it…
Honestly, when I finished this book, I just sat there for a bit....thinking....gathering my thoughts. I went back to the beginning of the book and read the first few pages again. This book is really nothing like anything I have ever read…
I had to remind myself that this book is fiction. But, could it be true????
