Off the Grid: The Catalyst by Brian Courtney
A man without a name who called himself Pan wanted something more, something better. For as long as he could remember, something or someone was gnawing at him, calling him, draining him, making him hungry, making him strive for more, more of everything. Living the life and pursuing the happiness, Pan lived the “American Dream”. Like so many cheerleaders, Pan worked hard to climb the ladder and he bought almost everything that “they” sold. Avoiding the questions and numbing the pain, Pan turned to drink and did drugs, he listened to loud music and had meaningless sex. He was a true consumer and a glutton until all the hedonism and all the materialism could no longer fill the void and help fulfill his life, his liberty and his pursuit of happiness.
The sports cars and white picket fences of the picturesque dream were now blurry and misshapen. His dream was shattered and the cracks revealed. Now he waits and watches and fears for the future that he knows is so near. Living in the shadows and preparing for tomorrow, he hopes that he is wrong, but knows that he is right.

“A Wonderful But Different Read.”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Reggie
This is the first novel by Brian Courtney, I found it to be a wonderfully different and an entertaining story, as the dilemmas that are placed before the main character, Pan A McCandless are disclosed. It is a very thought-provoking and novel story.
Courtney has written a story that covers very deep topics in a may that will enthrall the reader. You will not want to put the book down as it heads towards its final destination.
I fell in love with Pan even though he has a very abrasive attitude to life; he questions all types of authority, and that tends to get him into all kinds of interesting scrapes. Again, I must state this is a different story than I expected. I enjoyed every word written by this talented author. I am eager to read more of Brian Courtney’s writing. His ability to draw the reader into the scene of the novel is excellent.
I would certainly recommend the reading of Off The Grid : The Catalyst, you will not be disappointed. I am sure you will mention this book to friends as a good read, I know that I will.
