Review: Coma Sins: The Madness of Ben Bluman by Steven Nedelton and Joseph Parente
"Steven Nedelton and Joseph Parente introduce us to pure evil in Coma Sins: The Madness of Ben Bluman."
On the surface Ben Bluman appears to be a normal person – someone you can trust and depend upon. But Ben is not normal, he carries a demon inside him that bursts out when provoked. When that demon is out, Ben becomes evil incarnate – no conscience, no control, no thought. The story begins with Ben sustaining an injury. He is found comatose and we are able to relieve his life through his dreams while comatose. Are they real glimpses of his past? Or are they just dreams?
Ben Bluman was quite an intriguing character study. You knew he was evil and yet at the same time, you realize there is something driving him to do these things. He, himself, knows he needs medication and yet he still goes without it at times. At times, he seems to revel in the catastrophes and tragedies he has engineered. At other times he seems oblivious to what he has wreaked.
Coma Sins is fascinating and makes you really wonder when you look at people in the world. Perhaps Ben Blumen’s life explained some of the tragedies we see on the news. This is one book you will not want to put down once you start reading it. An intricate web is woven for us to and the reader is ensnared in that web from page one.
