Everything & Nothing

We rated this book:


They say that everyone has a double walking around, somewhere in the world. They may look just like you, but their personality would be completely different from yours. Ray is a small-time crook, stealing money from a casino where he worked. He has found his double and has decided to take advantage of an opportunity that was too good to pass up. Ray’s double, Professor Samuel Monroe, is an author, among other things, and is having a signing for a new book he has out. When Ray sees Sam’s picture in a bookstore window, he, at first, comes up with a plan to steal money from Sam’s bank account. After finding out more about Sam, Ray discovers that Sam comes from a wealthy family, so he decides that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and that he should take everything that Sam has, including his identity. He learns everything that he can about Sam by following him around and eventually is able to mimic his voice, facial expressions, and signature.

Everything & Nothing is an amazing tale of greed and hate, coming up against love and forgiveness. It’s an exciting adventure of one man finding his way through life as a wealthy businessman, concerned with being honest and fair, and another, thinking that wealth and power is everything he could possibly want. When Ray decides to kill Sam and take over his identity, the injustice of it infuriated me. Ray decides to get everything he deserves out of life, and this wonderful story will have you hoping that Ray will somehow fail. Ray doesn’t fail; he gets everything he deserves, and more. Everything & Nothing is a story about how the materialistic things in life that we think are invaluable and necessary are nothing more than things, and things won’t give you the happiness and peace you desire.
