Author’s note: Word count is 30,157. 134 pages. The kindle estimate is inaccurate.

An Esoteric Fiction written as Third Person Interior Monologue, The Invisible Papers is a work inspired by various sources and subjects in the realms of Theosophy, Occultism and Philosophy. Without a story or even any characters this novel presents its own unique landscape to intrigue the reader. The offbeat plot loosely strung throughout this book from beginning to end will not only fuel curiosity but at its core is meant to inspire in the reader a certain air of self-reflection and meditation. Its particular application of Third Person Interior Monologue provides a universality where such an atmosphere is possible as well as making it comfortable to navigate through. The reader will traverse many different topics at an unexpected yet refreshing pace all which more or less fall under the umbrella of personal relationships and existential observations approachable by anyone who isn’t averse to self-awareness.

My Thoughts

After I read the first chapter, I went back and re-read it again. If I had to describe this book in a few short words it would be: whimsical, eccentric, amusing & entertaining!

You can not easily describe the plot of this book as there really is none. At first you feel as if you could be reading someones diary or listening to many different conversations. Monologue.

I have to say in all honesty it covers many different topics, thoughts & attitudes. It is fictional but at the same time it really get’s you thinking about yourself and possibly how you and your attitude could easily come across to others. It is very thought provoking and I really loved the quirky style in which it was written.

I highly recommend this book, especially if you enjoy a book with no real beginning nor end, and I mean that in a positive way. For me it was a breath of fresh air, very different from what I typically read.
