After a vicious fight with her boyfriend followed by a night of heavy partying, college freshman Amanda Greene wakes up in her dorm room to find things are not the same as they were yesterday. She can’t quite put her finger on it. She’s sharing her room with a peculiar stranger. Amanda discovers she’s registered for classes she would never choose with people that are oddly familiar. An ominous shadow is stalking her. Uncomfortable memories are bubbling dangerously close to her fracturing world, propelling her to an inevitable collision between fantasy and reality. Is this the mother of all hangovers or is something bigger happening?
I am giving The History Major: A Novella by Michael Phillip Cash 3/5 stars.
Now, my feels are quite torn when it comes to The History Major. I personally do enjoy history, but only to a certain point and I found that The History Major covered topics that I personally never cared for. For that reason, I found it hard to get through, but there are a lot of positives to The History Major.
Amanda’s story is written in a fast pace that truly will keep readers engaged as it goes. One of the reasons that that the story goes so quickly is that Cash doesn’t try to concentrate on a large cast of characters, but a small group that play a large role in the story. Cash also does a great job jumping from the present, to the past in the story, which some authors struggle with, but Cash handled it with grace that let the story flow smoothly.
