Excellent novel with a teenage hero who happens to have unique abilities of perfect recall and blending of senses The author reminded me of William Blake with his creation mythology, and symbolic imagery I bet he read him before writing this novel.
I actually picked this up to determine if it was a Young Adult NOT It is about a 14 year old boy that has been brought back to life twice, he doesn t sleep, he has extraordinary gifts in that he is almost superhuman in his ability to smell and sense what s going on around him There is a mystery, he solves a friends murder but it is all rather underwhelming I enjoyed the character development of Myx, but not much of the story.

Strange mix no pun intended unsure of my thoughts on this one main character is a 14 year old with synesthesia he is no naive 14 year old in fact if we hadn t been told the age by reading it would ve read like a hardened old detective a bit disconcerting mix of things, but i think i enjoyed it some.
I was quite pleasantly surprised by this book It pretty much lived up to the hype I d been seeing mostly on DorothyL While I m not sure a 14 year old boy would have some of the reactions Myx did particularly to a come on from a woman in her 40 s, no matter how toothsome , I found it difficult to put the book down.
Ð Miracle Myx ✓ This book is what i believe to be a wonderful read in which kept me interested the whole way through After placing the book down for the night, i d find myself anticipating the very next time i d pick it up and continue on with the story Its hard finding such quality and unique story telling as Dave Diotalevi possesses and so i m rather glad i happened to come across this book.
This book was alright It was too story like for me and I think I prefer thereality based type of books The entire line of events in this book would never happen in real life For some reason, it also took me about 100 pages to really get into the book so I kind of felt like it dragged on and on, even though it is a fast paced book that takes place over just a 42 hour time period.
If you ve read Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz, this book will be familiar territory for you The teen narrator has been dead twice, once by lightning and once by violence, which has given him some unusual mental abilities synesthesia, which allows him to practically read peoples minds by seeing them through a whole spectrum of sensations, and permanent insomnia, which allows him to break and enter peoples homes while they sleep He s mostly on the side of good, although he has his own moral code to guide him Early in this book he meets the hot mom of a classmate of his who has just been found murdered, and he agrees to help her find the killer, which leads him deep into the secret and guilty lives of many of the townspeople, from his own foster parents to the chief of police to the local mafioso and the town
