YOU Got It Bad?! Try This Guy's Adventure May 9, 2005
THE TURNED FIELD's main character, Air Force pilot and Gulf War hero, Kyle Kendrick loves flying A-10s and Jaguars. Then one night, something happens. How will he fly now? Author Kent Jacobs based THE TURNED FIELD on a true story, which he learned when he and his wife, Sallie, met a man with a tracheotomy scar. An M.D. with thirty years experience practicing, Jacobs asked him what happened. The answer floored the doctor. He asked if he could write the tale, and man agreed. Using narrative and flashback, Jacobs wove characters, plot, and description into a tale of vivid realism. For anybody who likes the theme of people against themselves, THE TURNED FIELD is an especially good read. It's also good for those who like complex interactions between characters, and psychological drama. THE TURNED FIELD is inspiring and thought provoking. What happened to Kyle Kendrick could happen to anyone--at any moment. Who would be tough enough to react to it as Kyle did? Jacobs' simple, direct style never bogs the reader down in details. Still, THE TURNED FILED is full of lots of stuff: emotion, love, rejection, Air force lore, adventure, and courage that make it hard to put down. It's a must for the reading list.
The Turned Field Sep 14, 2004
Kent Jacobs spins a magnificent tale based on the real-life experience of Kyle Hendrick, former U.S.ir Force Top Gun, now ststioned in the UK. After leaving the annual RAF winter ball, Kyle skids off the roadwayand has a horrendous accident that nearly takes his life. The ambulanc attendats assume he is dead and transport him to the ER in a body bag. However, he clings tenaciously to life although gravely injured withmultiple fractures, massive internal traumas, and brtain damage which leaves him with no memory. The author weaves a superb storydocumenting Kyle's indomitable will to live, and seems to get into the patient's mindas hje describes the physical pain and mental frustration and anguish as recovery begins to take place, albeit so slowly. The tale is filled with suspense and surprises on almost every page, making it difficult to set the book aside. Jacobs explores thepassions of love, hate ,betrayal and adultery, as well as the depressing effects of loving someone who no longer remembers or recognizes you. The suspense of the storydoes not let up until the very last wordsa of the final chapter, when the enigma surrounding Kyle's relationships with those surrounding him is finally resolved. The book is a great read, and should be on everyones "mst read" list.
Great real story Sep 2, 2004
I thourghly enjoyed this powerfull well told story, mostly because it was real and because I,like most of us relish triumphant tales of love,survival,betrayal,and happy endings. The story is about real people that we have all known;comrades,lovers,dedicated no nonsense professionals,super achievers,shallow decievers,and good people that get a second chance. Read it and enjoy!
