Review: The Man With the Green Suitcase by Dee Doanes

Kati's rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this book very quickly. I loved the supernatural nod without it being 'in your face’ about it. It gives you a look at a normal life, with a bit here and there that seems paranormal, giving it just the right amount of supernatural undertone for the story.

From the first words "Do you see him?", to the very last, I found myself trapped in this dark world the author, Dee Doanes, has woven. I felt the suspense building and with a desperate need to satisfy my curiosity on how everything was going to end. 

The mystery of the suitcase kept me reading and guessing, but the biggest thing about this lovely book is the realism! How, as a reader, I could find myself relating to the characters and how, as with real life, the characters were on a non-stop journey to achieve their goals, every moment taking them a step closer.

It makes one think even about one’s own life. It takes you into a dark intense world that will have you blocking out the world around you as you become enthralled with this book. One of my favorite aspects about this wonderful read is how it took the lives of the characters and knitted them together along their journeys. This book for sure is a read for anybody and I say it gets a well-deserved 5 wonderful fairies. 

  • Goodreads Synopsis

    What does... 
    A prostitute, 
    A corrupt businessman,and 
    A disfigured young woman 

    Have in common with a mysterious, old homeless man who carries a green suitcase? 

    The old man comes into people’s lives because it is important for them to experience the visions that he is somehow able to show them—visions that even he doesn’t understand. But whoever he connects with will go through a transformation that will change the course of their life, for better or worse. The old man has no memory of who he is or even what the suitcase holds. But one day he will find out all about his own secret and dark past… 

    This story is magical realism, realistic with paranormal elements, a mystery that needs to be solved, and a man and woman who will finally realize that they were meant to come into each other’s lives and remain forever.
