The Island, by Patricia Mahon, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Is the art of formulating words becoming extinct?  Have texts, emoticons and e-mails smothered the act of communication? 

"You would think technology would make communication easier."
"That's the irony, Percy.  It's shut everything down!"
 . . . thus begins a snippet of dialogue in this thought-provoking novel about an app created to encourage people to put aside their digital distractions and engage in the art of story-telling.  The Island is a compelling tale within a tale which draws readers in with the turn of each page.  Employing the use of this interactive app, participants become immersed in a world created by people from around the globe who breathe life into an interchange of ideas which cohesively develop into a free-form story.

A compelling read that’s hard to put down, fantasy and reality merge to create a fascinating tale of adventure, love and hope. As the story develops we are drawn into Morgan and Percy's world and that of their app.  Author Patricia Mahon has crafted a particularly relevant novel with a powerful message which resonates with readers on many levels.  Well written and entirely unique, The Island has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
