5 Star Rating

I have just finished the book Fire and Iron. The title is puzzling, yet it drew me in. As one begins reading, the book is inspiring, emotional and even humorous, at times. It is also thought provoking.

The reflections after each story invite you to think about personal experiences or those of someone you may know. I will encourage others to read this book. A solid and enjoyable read.

This is a challenging book to read for the emotions portrayed by Norm are vivid and very real. They challenge the reader to look at their own emotions as they read. Each short story pokes at issues that resonated with me. They made me share the characters anger or betrayal and challenged my own sense of right and wrong. The stories made me wonder at their source - were they written from personal experience or exposure?

- PrincipalGuy

The author develops the characters very well, and the physical surroundings in which the stories take place are described in vivid detail. I think that everyone reading this book will identify with many of the emotional conflicts woven into the stories. The discussion questions found at the end of each story help one reflect on, and focus their personal connection to those conflicts. I recommend purchasing this book.
