SHALLCROSS: Animal Slippers by Charles Porter (Book Review #955)


Animal Slippers is the third book in its series. Shallcross and Flame Vine are two previous works before this one. Shallcross novels are the American Stadium for fifty years of Aubrey Shallcross’s life.

Aubrey is a voice hearer. He has heard Triple Suiter’s voice in his head but cannot tell anyone due to being scared and classed as a mentally ill person.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The book is written poetically and in an incomparable style. The voices Aubrey hears are called ‘Slippers,’ and that is where the story’s title comes from. Although the book is a fictional autobiography and the narration are not facts, they are very well represented and provide a glimpse of how it’s like to have schizophrenia.

Aubrey’s life is exciting to read. The book is novel to its point of the narrative. Throughout the book, you come across illustrations that were very interesting to me. Much care and planning are evident across the book, and I appreciated the author’s effort in relaying the thoughts and scenes to the reader.

I recommend this book to those who like fictional autobiographies.
