Book Review: Underneath

by 'Ard Pete

What’s that? Pete’s writing a review… on a book? Yeah what of it? I read books; sometimes.

Usually I’m the type of person that’s quite content on reading a few pages of a book, putting it down and watching television. Because man, I love television. If there’s nothing worth watching then I’ll usually pop on a film, most likely a Nicolas Cage or John Cusack film. Sometimes I’ll treat myself and put on Con Air.

      I remember one particular night, when I was tucking him into bed after he had spent hours reading books about dinosaurs so huge their footsteps shook the earth, playing with a plastic model of a toothy Tyrannosaurus Rex, and watching reruns of the Flintstones. As I gently kissed him on the forehead, turned off his Scooby Doo night-light, and pulled the covers up to his neck, he looked up at me with eager, loving and trusting eyes and said,

“Daddy; what was it like to live in caves, wear animal skins, drag mommy around by her hair, carry huge clubs, and run for your life from big, hungry dinosaurs?”

     I rustled his hair, thought for a moment and said…….

The Strangeness Of Estrangement



I have found that “Estrangement” stretches even beyond the realm of “Romantic” Relationships…

I experienced a bit of it last night, and it has stirred up several different relationships in my life where I have experienced “Estrangement”.
