Following momentarily is my 5-Star Review of Chaos is Come Again which appears on Amazon. The book is an extraordinary collaboration of two top-level writers who give us their dramatic moments and their wonderful bounty of wit, all playing out with a cast of memorable disparate characters. Other than to say that these two talented authors, having never personally met and separated by the ‘pond’ we call the Atlantic Ocean, have pulled off the difficult task of writing one hilariously irreverent and colossal book, my review says it all.
The duet novel put together by the extraordinarily talented John Dolan and Fiona Quinn is called “Chaos is Come Again” – Shakespeare devotees will recognize the title from Othello. Even the most lofty of the elite Shakespeare ‘club members’ should regale this offering from Dolan and Quinn as one of the best fictional novels of the year. In my humble opinion, here is what makes it so…
Dolan and Quinn give us characters that live with us long after we turn the last page… Avery, a literary agent who spends much of her time as many of us do – working, worrying, finding warm spots of happiness and love… Jerry, a boss we all love to hate… Travis, a truly tortured artist… Sean, who finds it difficult to expel from his life the naughty Teagen… Teagen, a woman we virulent males all wish to meet, well, at least once in our lives… Other great characters are here, some loony, some adorably crass and lovely, and there is some ugly business to sort out. But the truly amazing gift of this book is the writing itself, the purity of the words and phrases that pull the reader easily into the story, the literary wit that amuses us, the wonderful author craft that is constantly on display. It is an absorbing page-turner book no reader will want to put down.
Congratulations to John Dolan and Fiona Quinn, a fabulous writing duo… Were I allowed more stars, they would be given.
My review cannot end without this lovely nugget from “Chaos is Come Again:”
There are hours
There are nights
There are days
That cover us in shadow
There are times
In our lives
We feel lost
And alone and afraid
When the mantel clock
Ticks flat and slow
And branches scratch
At the window panes
When the dark things come
But not all is lost
For this is but
A transient dream…

Ace review, Billy Ray, great job! I truly enjoyed the book too.
Thanks, ‘My Girl’, for your response and your always great support. xox
Fabulous review, Billy! I can’t imagine collaborating with another writer across the Atlantic…kudos to them. Oh, I love a loony character.
Thanks, sweet Jill… You like loony characters, you’ll love “Chaos is Come Again” — I get royalties for saying that! (In my dreams!) 🙂
Great review, Billy Ray 😀
Thanks, Dianne… All the best.
I was already looking forward to reading it, but now even more so. I’ve read all of John’s solo books and I always expect great things. I’ve also read some of the interviews the two writers have given and they sound like the writing ‘odd couple’. Thanks for sharing!
I read “Chaos…”, Olga, and thought it very entertaining. Hope you like it. Thank you for responding to my posting. Always my best. 🙂
Thanks, BR. You are, as ever, a star 🙂 Best, John
Thanks, JD… Your comment is heart-warming. Best to you and wife Fiona – and the other Fiona, too! 🙂
