The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness

The Squirrel That Dreamt of Madness by Craig Stone

A Best Book Ever!

This book is laugh out loud funny. I had to check my laugh volume while reading in public places so that people wouldn't think that I was "that crazy lady". Craig Stone showed me that he has awesome storytelling skills with a story of a guy living in a park while living in the park - really? He pulled it off! I bet Mr. Stone could take any idea and turn it into an entertaining story.

 I have to admit that there were a few parts in the story where I felt embarrassed for Colossus. Then I would bring it all back to reality - anything goes when you are homeless and living in a park. I have never laughed at poo before and this book had me rolling on the floor! You have got to read this one - not for the poo it's much more then that. I didn't get bored and it kept my interest so I didn't want to put it down.

There were a few bumpy areas of concern for the edit police but I think that even you will like this one. Craig Stone has a new fan. I would read this one again and I am looking forward to his next book.

An excerpt: "I feel like talking to my imaginary friend to get some advice to calm myself down, but the last time I spoke to him he told me to stop talking to him like he wasn't there", ...LMBO and this statement is from the only sane homeless man in the park, maybe... priceless!

Check out the overview...

"Sometimes you need sit in the wrong place to see the right view".

What if you listened to that voice in your head telling you to walk out of your job? What if another voice, in a peculiar French accent, was telling you to go and live in a park?
What if you listened to both voices and ended up sitting on a park bench, having walked out on your job and flat earlier that day, with no idea what you are doing?

Well, that's what I did.

This is the story I made up whilst trying to keep my sanity as I lived alone in a park, as I came to terms with what I was doing, after making some extremely bold, and some might say, stupid choices.

I sat under a tree in real life, writing about what it was like to be homeless. After a while, due to starvation and lack of human contact, I started writing a rambling story that was my minds only outlet.

The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness is that story.
