(Reviewed by Jeyran Main)
Escape From Samsara is a dark comedy about Barry Harris who still lives with his mom and has fantasy adventures about being a lethal ninja. This humorous tale begins with Barry trying to find his dad who went missing 25 years ago. He trims hedges for a living and is adamant to find the lost pieces of the puzzle which may save his father.
I found this story to be very funny. The literature was filled with content that made the reader laugh out loud. Barry is definitely a funny character, and his personality is developed very well. There are quite a few other casting crew in this story that play an essential role in making this book enjoyable to read.
I believe anyone who likes to read humorous stories would thoroughly enjoy this one. I would caution that the nature of the humor does sway towards the male side and the British slang is embedded within the content of the work.
Writing a story maybe easy but to make it this funny and enjoyable to read is not. I appreciate the author’s sense of humor and humility in creating such literary work.
