September 2017 Book of the Month – “ONE in the SAME… Journey from MORTAL to SORCERER”

by Douglas A. Breeden

Reviewed by Anita Finley

The author, Douglas Breeden, definitely was meant to write this book about what it’s like to have Asperger’s syndrome. Many have heard of autism, but someone who has Asperger’s is at the highest level of autism.

READ the Whole Story

What was pure gold was how the author was able to intertwine a very poignant, extraordinary historical journey of possibilities for the human race, into his chief character, Michael Silverstein’s life. Michael had Asperger’s which required as a young boy, to have an assistant that kept him on track and out of trouble. Alexander Davidson was his handler. Outbursts are common with this syndrome, so Michael had to absorb why he did certain things and to be sensitive to those around him.

The fascination of this book is not about Michael’s Asperger’s but the exciting mental journey that he went on. Listening to Alexander’s complex philosophy of life, including the creation of the world, discussing Gods, mysticism, sorcery, and some of the most interesting and far-fetched ideas anyone could imagine. I could not put the book down, as each page brought me deeper into, as the author described, “the bowels of Hell and height of Heaven.” And that it did!

On the back of the book, it says, “Michael was introduced to the supernatural world of Palm Beach— which some call the Carpathians of North America. We followed Michael and his journey through many trials and tribulations as he fights to become the powerful sorcerer he was born to be.” Breeden discusses Palm Beach and its environs splendidly, especially today, it’s the very rich vs the lower middle class. I don’t now any sorcerers, but I would like to meet one. They live in a world beyond anything one could imagine. The future is laid out in front of Michael and he has to choose which life he wants to live.

The book is laid out by chapter designating each one as either Michael’s life or Alexander’s life. It will be an exciting challenge to read this book. No matter what your religious beliefs, there will be something in it for everyone. Be prepared to read it slowly, so as not to miss anything. Lurking in every sentence is something mystical, rare, or preposterous. I highly recommend your reading it for a “beyond belief” experience.

And you will learn a lot about people with Asperger’s syndrome.

Breeden uses strange words over and over again, such as He Who Is Who He Is to emphasize how Michael feels about a super creator or higher power. The travels that Michael and Alexander find themselves pursuing are almost dreamlike but feel so real. The author has a unique imagination that soars into space and under the sea.

About the author:

Douglas Breeden is a retired teacher’s assistant who worked with special needs and Asperger’s students. He holds a bachelor’s in education and an undergraduate and master’s degree in history, and associate’s in funeral service. He is the author of a collection of short stories about the residents of Palm Beach and a collection of essays on history. He lives in Palm Beach county.
