Review - The Liberation of Henry Belmont by Steve Godofsky
Title: The Liberation of Henry Belmont
Author: Steve Godofsky
Publisher: Eloquent Books
Buy The Liberation of Henry Belmont
Rating: You Gotta Read
Reviewed by: Jennifer
When Henry Belmont learns that he has ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and has just three years to live, he doesn't make any phone calls. He doesn't rush to tell his friends and family. He tells no one. He doesn't want to be pitied for this fast
approaching end to an unspectacular life.
His life could have been different. He could have been something else, maybe even someone else. But he isn't going to waste the precious time he has left. Henry decides to spend the rest of his life doing the things that previously were relegated to fantasy.
And in the end, he will find the freedom to be the person he's always wanted to be.
I don't want to give too much away about the book. Truly it just needs to be read. It doesn't end at all like I suspected. I was hooked from the beginning, because I wanted to know how Henry chose to live his last days. He didn't live them like I thought he would. That's what makes this a great story. The ending of the book brings everything to light and really is a great ending! It took a great imagination to write this book and tie it all together!
