Amanda Greene is a college freshman who wakes up after a night of heavy partying to find things aren’t quite as she remembers them. Her dorm room and roommate are no longer the same and she’s late for history class – a class she’s sure she never signed up for. As she moves through her day things only get stranger and more frightening. Amanda struggles to understand what’s happened to her – is she dead? Is this her new reality?
I wasn’t at all sure what to expect before beginning The History Major. From the book’s description and from having read previous books by Michael Phillip Cash I knew this story could go anywhere. But I have to say the author has certainly outdone himself.
The History Major is short, yet riveting, extremely thought provoking and very well done. The clever suspense-building techniques are truly unique. It took me several pages of reading to understand what was really happening to the main character. The historical information in this book is fascinating and makes this book not only great entertainment, but educational as well. I found the concept to be extremely unique.
Michael Phillip Cash’s writing is intelligent and gripping. He has a genuine, easy style of writing that I enjoy immensely. His personal notes about the story at the end of the book give readers some insight into the mind of this writer. I look forward to reading even more of his books!
