Do-overs in life; wouldn’t it be nice to be able to go back and re-live a moment in time you would like to either change or find closure for? Saturnine has that chance, thanks to a tech company that claims to take a person back in time to re-live any moment they want, but they do not guarantee you can change the events set in motion, after all, the past is in the past, it is written on the timeline of life, or can it be erased? Saturnine did indeed go back to re-live the night she her boyfriend walked out of her life for good. Many times, but could she find the answers she was looking for?
SATURNINE, IN HER HEAD, OUT OF TIME by Ray Hecht may be a short tale, but it packs a punch for young woman living with regrets from the past and the boy she let get away. Mr. Hecht has created a complete and intriguing tale with just a few well- placed words. Entertaining, thought-provoking and fun, I was left wondering what one thing in my life I would like a do-over on until I realized that, nope, I’m good and probably better off not going through my personal Ground Hog Day adventure!
Well, hasn’t Ray Hecht nailed the sad state of the direction that “romance” is taking? THIS MODERN LOVE hammers home the great disconnect of human to human contact and the growing inability to actually converse, risk face to face rejection and put the effort into a real, live “get – to – know – you” possible relationship. Welcome to the age of internet dating, because “there isn’t anywhere to meet good people.” Meet four lonely people looking for “love” in all the wrong places, doing all the wrong things and mistaking monkey sex for the real deal.
A blend of humor, both comical and dark, the raw insecurities we all own and the fear of not being cool and looking like we have it all together. Oh wait, we have our cell phones, our selfies and our online connections, so we must have it all together! No need to stick out necks out and actually meet someone, right? Follow these four lonely souls as they chase the elusive dream, someone who will adore them, drama, self-absorption and all.
Ray Hecht even creates real, fumbling, sweaty sex, not the kid that “melts panties,” but the real deal, and to be honest, it wasn’t quite so dreamy. BUT. IT. WAS. HUMAN…and not are real sharing of emotions, just a physical release for instant gratification. Yep, it is all summed up in the words: American love isn’t what it used to be – Welcome to the 21st century. My only disagreement with those lines? American, how about Universal?
A gritty read with a raw message. Not looking for a message? It’s entertaining, too!
