Publisher's Summary

I was drowning, but all I needed to do was breathe.
It was 5:45 p.m. when I decided my future. By 9:43 I was well on my way to making it all come true. At 11:16 I took the first step to make it a reality. At 11:17 I fell and found peace.
When a dream of dying actually becomes a chance to live, all you have to do is fall.

Looking Into the Looking glass

This book will make you look at yourself in a different way. the author took the story to a much higher level than expected. As Novi meet and interacted with each character you could feel the struggle for self. This book will make you think, look into your inner most thoughts and bring them to the light. What you do with them after that is your choice. Sometimes you need a kick in the pants to bring about true healing. this book will help. I got this book via audiobook boom. This is by no means a book to help you discover yourself. But it will make you take a closer look at your own inner demons that you keep hidden from the world.

Wondrous journey of self-discovery...

Where does Falling Out of Focus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Falling Out of Focus ranks as one of my favorite audios! If you’ve ever ridden a classic, much beloved ride such as Forbidden Journey at Universal or It’s a Small World at Disney World, you may be able to relate to discovering something new in the experience every time you ride. Falling Out of Focus is like that. I hope to hit play with it again soon!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Without a doubt, Novaleigh was my favorite character as the story is her journey of self-discovery and self-healing. Novaleigh Darrow has fallen out of focus. She is burdened by guilt for the choices she’s made and the expectations she feels that she’s not lived up to.

Her life has come to a crossroads and she needs to make choices between light and dark paths. Nothing is written in stone. The choice is always hers. But, the colorful characters in this tale ensure that Novaleigh sees the whole picture, not just the light’s view or the view of the dark.

The supporting cast include, but are certainly not limited to, Oliver, a talking otter and Novaleigh’s guide on her journey to find her way back to who she is and who she wants to be; twin queens who rather bizarrely talk in alternating sing-song; and creepy harlequin clowns.

Which character – as performed by Andrea Parsneau – was your favorite?

It's impossible for me to pick one favorite character as performed by Andrea Parsneau. She performed all the characters extremely well. This is the first time I've ever listened to Andrea Parsneau and hope that it won't be the last. Her voice is clear and easy to understand and she consistently differentiates between the characters to where I had no issue whatsoever knowing who was speaking at any time. Her voice is so spot on that it literally gave me chills when the tone was dark; evoked tears when our heroine was either overwhelmed or sad; and elicited feelings of delight when her surroundings were happy or joyful. The audio production is polished perfection. I did not want to put the audio down and snuck in additional audio time every chance I could. Without a doubt, Andrea Parsneau’s performance added to my pleasure of listening to Falling Out of Focus.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Any additional comments?

Falling Out of Focus by the fantastically talented Brynn Myers is a wondrous journey of self-discovery and self-healing commingled with Arthurian, Alice in Wonderland and Labyrinth dark fantasy feels. I confess that, at first, I thought I was reading a very imaginative fractured fairy tale. My original impression changed dramatically as I continued reading and the story morphed into so much more.

Falling Out of Focus is inventive, magical, scary, heartfelt and thought-provoking. There’s also a touch of romance. Falling Out of Focus is an incredible adventure.
