Colorado Mandala

Colorado Mandala - Brian Heffron Favorite setting... Paul and Michael's mountain cabin. It was so warm and homey which was completely different from how Michael was feeling or acting and his PTSD was developing. The surrounding mountains were a symbol of the challenges Michael was going through. Absolutely superb book.

Favorite scene... When Paul carried little Stuart on his back under water. Then gave him mouth to mouth to save him. I couldn't wait for this scene to be over. It was heartbreaking and it was at this point that Paul became my favorite character.

Was the plot clearly expressed? Some questions remain unanswered till the end. Considering the author's writing style, I think these were intentional and were meant to function as thinking points for the readers. Other than this, the plot was clear throughout the novel and the author deserves applause for the way he highlighted PTSD within a fiction story.
