    Ah another book from Ian Thomas Malone The cover and title prove that we are joining the main character on a psychedelic adventure.I, for one, have never taken any sort of drug, so I wasn t sure what to expect when the book said we would be taking a trip down the rabbit hole In my mind, I imagined the adventure would be like Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill s high adventure from 21 Jump Street, but it wasn t It was calmer, with very philosophical outlooks on life and the things the characters en Ah another book from Ian Thomas Malone The cover and title prove that we are joining the main character on a psychedelic adventure.I, for one, have never taken any sort of drug, so I wasn t sure what to expect when the book said we would be taking a trip down the rabbit hole In my mind, I imagined the adventure would be like Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill s high adventure from 21 Jump Street, but it wasn t It was calmer, with very philosophical outlooks on life and the things the characters encountered The narrator and a guy named Charles take a minor character named James on this LSD adventure where they visit the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and a theater to see The Lion King in 3 D.This book is a lotlaugh out loud than Malone s previous Five College Dialogues , but he does ponder an important question of what he wants to do with his life after college No one knows what they want to do when they re in college a.k.a reason why I ve been a Journalism, Anthropology, Early Childhood Education Major, and a Human Development and Family Studies minor before finally settling on Elementary Education with an emphasis in Special Education and a minor in Developmental Disabilities What impact are you going to leave on this world The book itself is laid heavily in sarcasm and is ridiculously funny But as I read it, several things sounded as though the narrator main character, that we never learn the name of, is the author himself He mentions his stuffed animal collection, goes to school in Boston, is an English major, etc etc., and the list can go on I wonder if maybe it s based on Malone s college adventures, regardless he gives his audience great advice Be afraid to make mistakes, that just means that whatever you re trying to gain is really worth having.I recommend checking this book out Malone also has another book out in less than two weeks Five More College Dialogues, the sequel to Five College Dialogues

    Being a junior college student can be a bit daunting Why For this is the time where you ve got to think about the future, about the career you ll land into and a lotabout your life I ve shared the same sentiments before, though it was different, for I ve got to feel that anxiety earlier, which was on my last year of High School yeah, that early eh And this book will make you realize a lot of things Will provide awesome realization with a great addition of humor which makes this book Being a junior college student can be a bit daunting Why For this is the time where you ve got to think about the future, about the career you ll land into and a lotabout your life I ve shared the same sentiments before, though it was different, for I ve got to feel that anxiety earlier, which was on my last year of High School yeah, that early eh And this book will make you realize a lot of things Will provide awesome realization with a great addition of humor which makes this book too interesting for you to just drop.Before anything else, I would like to thank the author, Ian, for inviting me to read this latest book of his and construct an honest review about it When he first informed me about the book, I was really thrilled for I really liked his previous book, entitled the Five College Dialogues, you can read the review here.Honestly, when I was just starting the book, I really find it a bit boring Maybe because I can t relate to its topic I ve never tried LSD or any other kind of drugs before But what s really interesting in this book, is that all we re properly explained So all the confusion I felt in its first few chapters we re all answered.Unlike Five College Dialogues, this one doesn t just contain dialogues All scenes we re properly written and I salute the author for using very easy to grasp terms And all the characters we re very easy to keep track of because they we re all properly introduced Everybody knows how a sucker I am for dialogues, but this book makes me like it even with just a little dialogue.And what makes this book outstanding is that, it doesn t just share plain story, but it share a story in an entertaining way I can t count how many times I make myself look stupid for laughing out loud in the middle of the crowd while reading it I read everywhere, even when I m walking, haha I also can t help but think that this book was written base on the author s adventure I don t know, but I can t help on thinking that One reason would be the physical appearance of the main character He sure is a long haired specie too, and also, a shark whale stuff animal was mentioned a lot of times in this book It s no secret how fanatic Ian for stuff animals How do I know Because I m a genius, haha So any spoiler to share Sorry guys, but I m not gonna share any bummer for this book But I assure you, this is a great book to read Highly recommended to everyone especially to graduating students Enjoy Rating 4 out of 5 starsRead my full review blog post Buy A Trip Down Reality Lane Kindle Buy A Trip Down Reality Lane Paperback To readof my reviews, book news and updates Main Blog Blushing GeekFacebook PageSubscribe to mailing list

    Right up front, I ll say thanks to the author Ian Thomas Malone for inviting me to take a day trip with him by way of a very enjoyable book which he provided at no cost to me in exchange for a review But first, a bit of explanation is in order here coming of age in the late 1950s and early 1960s, I know from experience that sharing a joint wasn t all that unusual And I admit now that I m pretty sure the statute of limitations has expired that I did just that Twice The second time, tho Right up front, I ll say thanks to the author Ian Thomas Malone for inviting me to take a day trip with him by way of a very enjoyable book which he provided at no cost to me in exchange for a review But first, a bit of explanation is in order here coming of age in the late 1950s and early 1960s, I know from experience that sharing a joint wasn t all that unusual And I admit now that I m pretty sure the statute of limitations has expired that I did just that Twice The second time, though, was in the hope that I d feel something I d missed the first time around but this one, too, was zero, zip, nada Heck, I gotof a high from my Virginia Slims menthol than from the weed, so I figured there was no point and never again indulged.LSD, on the other hand, seemed to offer lotspossibilities as underscored by counter culturist Timothy Leary s Turn on, tune in, drop out mantra of the mid 60s But in fact, speed other than the kind I enjoyed on my favorite roller coaster at Coney Island in Cincinnati scared the bejesus out of me Here I was, the product of a Midwestern farm, just starting an on my own journey to an unknown destination I wasn t particularly beautiful, nor athletically inclined so it was clear that brains would give me the best shot at a solid future Simply put, my mind was just too important to mess with But to this day, I wonder occasionally what the experience would be like And thanks to this book, much of the mystery has been revealed Here, I learnedabout what happens to someone on drugs than in all my nearly 74 years combined as I tagged along on Malone s trip from beginning to end, with plenty of pretty cool stops along the way I gleaned far too many nuggets of wisdom to mention without spoiling the revelations for other readers, although a few, such as this one, stood out One generally does not ask someone who is tripping a question and expect a coherent answer The adventure takes place in Boston as Malone, a junior in college, and two friends decide to pop some acid, visit the Museum of Fine Art and then head for a theater to see The Lion King in 3 D As one might expect, the adventures take on a life of their own once the drugs kick in in particular, their experience in the museum bathroom was a hoot By the time they got to the movie, I d giggled out loud several times Watching it brought the trio eveninsights although I suspect seeing Rafiki about to throw Simba off that cliff in 3 D would have that effect on me even without the drugs Then, on what I believe was a Monday morning sidewalk with a day after nod to Kris Kristofferson , there s the coming back down it s complete with an awareness of what was real, what wasn t, and what the book really is about self discovery Knowing that Malone graduated from college a couple of years ago apparently in one piece and clearly to me, at least is an accomplished writer, I d say he s put what he learned to good use

    First of all, this book is hilarious It s been a while since I read a book that made me literally laugh out loud So, the whole story is about three guys on one really long, crazy acid trip It brought back so many memories of being a crazy teenager, wild and free Malone s writing style is impeccable The story is well crafted, perfectly paced, and clever I could see this book as a blockbuster comedy film Nice job, sir I m officially a fan.

    Actual Rating 3.5 5The Story College can be hard What s even harder is realizing that you have absolutely no plans for the future and no idea what you want to do with your life One easy, short term solution for this is to just ignore it for a couple of days, which is what our protagonist does This is the story of a weekend spent taking drugs, going to the museum, and seeing a movie with friends, while trying not to get kicked out of said places.The Opening Line Misery Pure misery Mixed i Actual Rating 3.5 5The Story College can be hard What s even harder is realizing that you have absolutely no plans for the future and no idea what you want to do with your life One easy, short term solution for this is to just ignore it for a couple of days, which is what our protagonist does This is the story of a weekend spent taking drugs, going to the museum, and seeing a movie with friends, while trying not to get kicked out of said places.The Opening Line Misery Pure misery Mixed in with just a dab of hatred for life.What I Loved My friends and I never took drugs to deal with the pressures of college and life, but I could definitely see us spending a Saturday hanging out in a museum, seeing a movie, and heading to the pool hot tub In fact, my friends and I had what we called Little Kid Days , where we would set aside any obligations and revert back to a time when there was no pressure We would spend the day watching cartoons, playing old school video games, eating kid s meals from the local fast food joint, and anything else we could think of to help us relax So I loved in essence, A Trip Down Reality Lane is about one of those days, albeit with the added layer of drugs I also loved the surprisingly heartfelt truths sprinkled throughout, as the main character learns to deal with the future and meet his obstacles head on.What I Didn t Love I don t understand how taking drugs ever really helps anyone relax Maybe this isof a personal thing than something against the book, but I ve always thought being under the influence of drugs sounded miserable Even when reading about positive experiences, I can t get over the lack of control you have or the way you feel after.Final Thoughts At just 169 pages, this was an extremely short and quick read It came at the perfect time for me, as I needed something light and a little random to get me through a busy week when I didn t exactly have the longest attention span The college experience was spot on, and I was really able to relate to the pressures and uncertainties that the friends faced, because I vividly remember having the same thoughts Heck, I still wonder what I m going to do with my life Overall, a fun and surprisingly astute book

    Indie author Ian Thomas Malone befriended me on Goodreads and was kind enough to let me know of a limited time opportunity to download his book, A Trip Down Reality Lane, for free fromsorry, the promo has finished now Its synopsis of a trio of college students visiting a major art museum whilst tripping on LSD struck me as potentially funny and certainly a lot lighter than much of my To Be Read list right now There is a lot of humour in A Trip Down Reality Lane, both intentionally wit Indie author Ian Thomas Malone befriended me on Goodreads and was kind enough to let me know of a limited time opportunity to download his book, A Trip Down Reality Lane, for free fromsorry, the promo has finished now Its synopsis of a trio of college students visiting a major art museum whilst tripping on LSD struck me as potentially funny and certainly a lot lighter than much of my To Be Read list right now There is a lot of humour in A Trip Down Reality Lane, both intentionally witty in the boys conversation and accidentally so through their bumbling All three come across as genuine people and their interactions are easily believable I enjoyed the descriptions of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and would now love to visit it myself The intense perceptions of certain exhibits are bizarre and intriguing Hopefully it would be almost as fascinating when viewed straight The claustrophobic cinema setting is also well portrayed and I liked the fun idea of the trio making major life discoveries from The Lion King.I could have done with less wordy analysis throughout the story as the introspection was often repetitive Perhaps this is an important feature of tripping, but from a reader s point of view it slowed the book s pace too much and distracted my attention from the narrative Post trip, I felt the story lost focus as many mundane actions and conversations were included unnecessarily An example would be the lifeguard conversation which could have been condensed to just a few words All in all though, A Trip Down Reality Lane is a fun novella and an interesting take on the coming of age story.Seeof my reviews on my blog, Stephanie Jane

    I can t sugar coat it, this was a strange read I really liked the writing I thought the book had a good flow The narrator was an interesting character We learned his physical description, his fears, and his drug of choiceyet somehow we never learned his name I thought that was such a unique choice, it made me feel like the character was a lotdistant I felt like I was an outsider looking in It seems like such a minor detail but I felt like it took me out of the story Besides I can t sugar coat it, this was a strange read I really liked the writing I thought the book had a good flow The narrator was an interesting character We learned his physical description, his fears, and his drug of choiceyet somehow we never learned his name I thought that was such a unique choice, it made me feel like the character was a lotdistant I felt like I was an outsider looking in It seems like such a minor detail but I felt like it took me out of the story Besides the narrator we have a small group of supporting characters, the main ones being Charles and James Charles is the leader of this trio as he and the protagonist watch over James during his first trip James is definitely the baby of the group, he is the one being teased by the others, he brings the comedy in this story We also get introduced to protagonist roommates and love interest This book is intended to be a coming of age story The narrator is a junior in college and he is starting to worry what the future holds for him As he is walking around Boston high on acid and weed he spaces out a lot to rationalize his fears I didn t feel that connection with the book I didn t really feel the character growth, I read itas an AHA moment at the end I was also expecting the adventure to be bigger somehow I didn t feel like the story lived up to the colorful cover I am giving this book a C I love the premise I liked the direction it was going in I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that I would love this as a movie, it has the Dazed and Confused feel to it I wanted to love this book, it wasn t for me
