Publisher's Summary

"It's been two years since I received my life sentence of imprisonment."

Diagnosed with a rare form of meningitis, a teenage boy is paralyzed from head to toe - trapped in his own mind. To cope with his imprisonment, he retreats to an imaginary world called his Mind Palace, but the lines between reality and time start to blur into wild adventures after he gets a new roommate - an old, outspoken, Jewish jazz musician with dementia.

Loved it!

I have to admit, I'm not always keen on reading independently published books. Sometimes they're pretty painful. But I heard about this author and story from an event at my local library and was intrigued. I'm so glad I made an exception! I was hooked from the beginning and engaged all the way through. I loved the characters, the history, the music references, and the hopeful message. A+ Johan Twiss!

Wonderful

The counter view of young and old, coming of age and the inevitable approach of life’s end was beautifully done. Their friendship was heartwarming. The performance was really great too. A very well done audiobook.

For young and old

What did you love best about 4 Years Trapped in My Mind Palace?

I loved the relationship between the two main characters. When young and old can meet and have a lasting friendship, that is just beautiful to watch.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked all the history in this. The little jumps to different events had me listening for longer than I should have.

What does Johan Twiss bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Solomon's voice - you can probably get it a little from reading, but the narrator really brings it out. Solomon really came alive for me.

Any additional comments?

This is a book I could see my children enjoying as well as my parents. It's clean and funny and heartbreaking and inspiring. Truly for young and old alike.
