“The best laid plans…” is an often-used expression that describes the plot in Harry Gilleland’s book, Zack’s Choice perfectly. Zack plans to marry his high school sweetheart and follow in his parents’ footsteps in the legal world. First, though, he decides to take a motorcycle trip through the south. In New Mexico his trip turns into a not-to-be believed adventure. He meets a young hitchhiker who convinces him to help save the world.
“Zack’s Harley headed into the late-afternoon sun as he glided across the highway, engulfed by the vastness of the desert southwest when he first saw the hitchhiker. Zack slowed and eased to a stop a few yards from him. Zack removed his helmet, and the two slowly eyed one another, assessing each other’s potential threat.”
What Bobby, the hitchhiker tells him is unbelievable, but Zack believes it anyway. Following Bobby’s directions, Zack’s journey takes him to California and then to Europe where he has to flee to stay out of jail. Don’t pass up a chance to read this incredulous story. The twists and turns and the subtly humorous dialogue combine to make you want more. Who knows? Maybe Dr. Gilleland will carry on the adventures of Zack. If not, you are le ft with a very unusual development that will make you wonder if something this fantastic could actually happen. Read it. Then decide.
I always enjoy Dr. Gilleland’s books. His imagination and writing style keep me enthralled from beginning to end – and this book is no exception. If this is your first introduction to Harry E. Gilleland, you will definitely want to read his other works.
Harry E. Gilleland, Jr. is an award-winning poet and author of nine published books, four books of his personal poetry and five prose books. He was born in Macon, GA, and has lived in Shreveport, LA since 1975, making him a proud and confirmed Southerner. He spent two long years in London, Canada in the snow, ice, and freezing - and I do mean freezing - cold. He moved back south to thaw out in 1975 and has no plans to ever leave the South again. Dr. Gilleland retired in 2004 after twenty-nine years as a Professor of Microbiology at LSUHSC-S's School of Medicine. Since his retirement, Harry has devoted his efforts full-time to creative writing, both poetry and prose, and to editing. ( )
