review 1: I read this book in one sitting, and I literally couldn't put it down. I was actually holding my Kindle in my left hand while eating dinner with my right hand. This gem of a book is about a former marine named Patrick Mitchell who struggles with the direction in which his beloved country is heading. I think many Americans feel the way the main character feels about the consumerism that's swallowing our country, and I'm glad that the author had the guts to point out the issues that are plaguing the youth of America.Even though the messages in this book are serious, there are some lighter moments in the story. The way that Mitchell interacts with his son is quite touching, and it allows the reader to get to know a softer side of the protagonist. The story is told in first pe... morerson, which I really enjoyed. Like I said, "Priority" is a fast read, and you won't be able to put it down once you start.Aaron Powell is a talented writer, and story flows very well. This is the first book that I've read by this author, and I will definitely be reading other works by Mr. Powell. I look forward to reading more of his witty, deep writings.
review 2: What are your priorities? What do you want? Once when I was visiting a Buddhist temple in NYC, there was a saying by one of the Dalai's... along these lines:Why so much is done in our cities today? And why so many people do it heartless? Why heart and feeling has taken such a small part in our lives? What is the rest for?Of course the saying was bigger and more meaningful, but it is what Aaron is trying to say in his wonderfully beautiful and absurdly dreamily real book. Sit. Read it in a hour or so. But don't do it before bedtime. Do it in the morning, because it will lead to many hours of thinking.As always, applauses for Aaron Powell. less
