Verdict? The White Hairs, by Noah K. Mullette-Gillman

9 Aug

Thought-provoking and intensely spiritual without getting religious, The White Hairs is a parable for modern times, gently inducing readers to examine their own natures along with the novel’s hero and guide Farshoul.

Although one could say that the entire book is a long extended metaphor, Mullette-Gillman’s elegant, streamlined prose prevents the story getting bogged down under the weight of philosophical obscurantism.  Reminiscent of Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist, The White Hairs is a thoughtful book that flows at a slow, soft, meditative pace.

Reading time: At 122 pages, a quick reader could finish this one off in a weekend, but since the message of the book is introspection, after all, I’d say a week is reasonable too.

Recommendation: The jury unanimously approves Noah K. Mullette-Gillman’s “work of spiritual mythology” as accessible for all audiences—for the contemplative (who’ll love it), and for the hurried and harried (who’ll need it).

The White Hairs is available as an ebook on Amazon for $2.99, as well as in paperback form.
