What a fascinating dystopian sci fi adventure! I truly have become a fan of Ullman and his point of view. Fascinating social analysis, filled with moments for personal introspection as you moved through the pages of this fictional tale. This book moves fast and causes you to think. This will be one I will absolutely read again soon to make sure I didn’t miss any brilliance.

I really enjoyed this Sci fi, time travelling tale.
The author does an amazing job with with characters and also creating the world of the present and the future. It also covers the theme of rich (Haveall) and poor (Havenots) and how their lives are different.

Tommy Canada is a successful man who is part owner of a company called NORML. Along with his partner Win they are working on nanobots  that means that your body will be able to heal itself. They are on the edge of making it real until Tommy gets a visit from Havall 16.

Havall 16 is from the future she has come back to seek out Tommy for his help. She needs him to close down his business and stop making these technological advances. Even though his future is good with him being wealthy and famous his creations also mean loads of people end up loving in poverty.

Will Tommy heed Havall 16 warning? Will he chose his own wealth and life over everyone elses? And will his partner Win be understand of Tommy’s reasons to destroy everything they have worked for or will he be against Tommy?

Havall 16 asks him, “If you could go back in time and kill Hitler when he was a baby, would you? Kill an innocent to spare millions in the future?” You might, she says, have to kill before you ever become the richest man on earth, before you can solve humans’ greatest fear: dying. Convincing his partner, Win Gault, who owns fifty percent of the company, presents another problem. The future Havalls know Havall 16 has gone back in time to prevent the creation of this technology and they have a plan to deal with her and Win.

Drifting, Falling: Diary of a Call Girl Suicide by A.J. Ullman is a wonderfully written story that I absolutely put it down. I think at one point I was holding my breath while on the edge of my seat . Other times I had tears in my eyes. It was kinda hard to read at times but I had to know what was going to happen next. This author has completely blown me away and im kinda speechless. I went in with something completely the opposite of what actually happened. This is about a young woman who has a very dark and troubled past. Get ready to be taken on quite the emotional journey. With some heart breaking and heartwarming moments. I recommend reading this book and I look forward to reading more from this Author.

Emotional story. Keep Kleenex nearby because you will need it.

When I saw the title of this book, I knew I was going to have to read this book. A.J. Ullman has taken a serious topic of suicide and made it into a story that everyone needs to read. Once a person decided that life is not worth living, it is one that those around them are baffled that they could do such a thing. This is a story that brings to light a tragic subject matter. People have demons and most do not know that this thought is going through the mind of the person. Ripley has many demons and her story brought tears to my eyes and pain in my heart. There were moments that I felt I could not read another word but I needed to see what was coming next for Ripley. The character of Ripley can be anyone in your life. She is smart, kind, loving, and haunted by her past. Sound like anyone you know? It is an emotional roller coaster ride, but it is one that I highly recommend. Make sure you have plenty of Kleenex by you because you will need it. It is a solemn read but an eye-opening one. Dare I say, I loved this story because it really pointed out suicide and what someone goes through while making that decision.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a really emotional read about a young girl who’s life spirals down hill until she sees no way to redeem herself but to commit suicide. Its a thought provoking book that shows you don’t know what another person is thinking, feeling or going through in their life.

It is written using Ripley’s dairy and also has section written by her psychiatrist. Ripley is 21 and has always dreams of becoming an astronaut. However things don’t go as she plans and she ends up becoming a call girl. Filled with sadness and depression she speaks openly ans honestly in her journal about her struggles using humour and sarcasm to hide some of her feelings.

When we see the conversations between Ripley and Dan we see how some people can hide their suffering so that even the professionals can’t tell their true thoughts and feelings.

Drifting, Falling: Diary of a Call Girl Suicide by A.J. Ullman. This book was so amazing. Mental Illness is very important to me and I love when authors do a great job telling a story about it. This is the story of Ripley Astilla Luna who is a call girl. She had plans to be an astronaut when she was a little girl but life doesn’t always turn out the way we hope. She has had a very hard life. She has had to deal with a lot more heartache than most people. Becoming a call girl was never what Ripley wanted but here she is so she has decided to plan her suicide and that entails jumping off a very tall building. She is a beautiful girl that has tons of potential but all that she’s been thru and her mental issues causes her to want to end it all. Her therapist Dan Truscott has tried to help her and get her on a positive track but it seems he can’t reach her. Will Ripley succeed in her attempt to end it all or will she finally win the war of her mind?

This book was such a different story compared to those I generally gravitate towards, but I genuinely enjoyed the ride. An air of unease that only lent to the story followed my path through this read, yet A.J. Ullman still managed to delicately take us on a journey through Ripley’s darkness and it was eye opening.
I was just as wrapped up in Dr. Truscott as I was in Ripley, looking forward to getting to know them both as the pages turned.
With amazing character development and writing from an author I’d never heard of but can’t wait to read more from, you’ll take a look into how those who had internal struggles go day to day. I highly recommend this book just so you may have better understanding of the workings of the mind of those around you.
