Eight Minutes by Lori Reisenbichler

Eight MinutesEight Minutes by Lori Reisenbichler
My rating: 3 of 5 stars



This was a really strange tale.

At the beginning it all started quite dramatic with Shelley going into labour and her husband fighting for his in hospital after a near fatal accident. He actually 'died' for a full Eight Minutes [hence the title]

Shelley gives birth to a little boy named Toby.


From there on we see how Shelley's life was quite 'normal' to all intense and purposes until that fatal day her husband stopped breathing for those Eight Minutes.

He has changed!

Did something happen in those Eight Minutes that changed him from the husband she knew?

Her marriage is now being split asunder, not only that, Toby is growing and as he's getting older he gets an Imaginary friend, or at least, that' is what it seems on the surface.


Life has got very odd.


Without giving too much away, it was a good read, it kept me entertained, however, because its near to paranormal, supernatural, things that go bump in the night kinda things, for me, it was creepy. I don't like things appertaining to supernatural its gives me the eeebie geebies :O

All in all though, for those readers that do like this kind of thing, its a GREAT read so hence the 3.5 stars


I would like to say thank you to Lake Union Publishing via Net Galley for allowing me to read and review my copy




On the night that Shelly Buckner finally became a mother, she very nearly became a widow. Her husband, Eric, seriously injured in a car accident on the way to the hospital, was dead for a full eight minutes before being revived—all while Shelly was in labor. Those eight minutes changed everything Shelly thought was possible.

Three years later, their son, Toby, brings home an imaginary friend. But he’s no ordinary playmate—John Robberson is a fighter pilot and Vietnam vet. As Toby provides unlikely details about John’s life—and Toby’s tantrums increase—Shelly becomes convinced that John was real and now wants something from Toby. But her husband has his doubts, and as Shelly becomes involved, even obsessed, with finding out the truth, their marriage begins to disintegrate. Torn between protecting her child and keeping the peace with her husband, Shelly desperately searches for a way to finally put John Robberson out of their lives.
