Welcome to our stop on the Acts of God While on Vacation book blog tour!
Synopsis: ACTS OF GOD WHILE ON VACATION begins with a death threat received by a philandering general manager of a lavish Hawaii resort, jumps to an anthropologist researching headhunters in the jungles ofBorneo, then to a demonic, scandal-mongering paparazzo in New York, and on to a gorgeous, party-loving English aristocrat in London. Alternately desperate and hilarious adventures draw them all to Waikiki, where their arrival coincides with an international conference on shamanism and a catastrophic, force-five hurricane. ACTS OF GOD WHILE ON VACATION was a National Semi-Finalist for the AMAZON BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL AWARD.
About the Author: Richard Tillotson has been a Peace Corps volunteer in Borneo, a playwright in New York, a copywriter in Hawaii, and is a relative of an English Lord, all of which helped him write Acts of God While on Vacation, a National Semi-Finalist for the 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and named “Hawaii’s best fiction book of 2011” by The Honolulu Star-Advertiser. He works in Honolulu and vacations in Washington DC.
Review: This novel is definitely the definition of the 'Butterfly Effect' in motion! The book is full of quirky characters that jump off the page- they may not be the most endearing, but you WILL remember them! The book really isn't quirky, as much as it brings together people, who are worlds apart (literally) and shows us how much we all have in common. You'll alot learn about Shamanism over the world, and how cultures look at it! It may also make you wish for the sunny beaches of Hawaii, if you're under 5 feet of snow! I finished this book in 2 sittings and was quite happy with it. If you believe in coincidences, you'll love this book!
