“A remarkable narrative with no wasted chapters.” – Portland Book Review
“Adair’s characters are engaging – with the malicious and gorgeously depicted Rita being particularly memorable.” – Literary Fiction Book Review
“It’s impossible to read Adair’s work and not scrutinize our own dreams and aspirations to answer the singular question: What would we attempt to do if we knew we couldn’t fail?” – Barbara Devlin, bestselling Author of the Brethren of the Coast series
“If you only read one book this year, this is the one you should choose.” – Elizabeth Horton Newton, Author of View from the Sixth Floor
“Random Lucidity” is unlike any other book I’ve ever read, and that’s a wonderful thing.” – Mark Fine, Author of The Zebra Affaire
“It is difficult to put into words just how much I enjoyed Random Lucidity and, days after finishing it, I found myself missing the main characters and their stories.” – Kathyrn Hodgson, Author of No Damage
“I will say this, as much as I loved this story, I really want to read “Johnson Rambling: A Novel”. Those sections of the novel were intense, shocking, and had me in a vice grip.” – Jennifer Powell, Author of Stolen
“Adair has skilfully crafted a story that expertly weaves around an ‘inner’ story. It’s not confusing but endearing, both plots equally intriguing and quickly get under your skin.” – Jackie Parry, Author, Of Foreign Build
