Survival, by Anthony Antonio, is a sweeping tale of secrets, friendships, and prohibited passions. It follows the life of Daniel Roberts as he overcomes the loss of his father, an abusive mother, and poverty. He finds love and happiness even as he continues to fight against the system, the codes of silence, and social degradation. A novel filled with themes of greed, jealousy, vengeance, poverty, violence, romance, and self-identity. Antonio shows what humans have been doing to the planet by focusing on the country through the eyes of one person.

Antonio tackles several tough subjects in this complex and deeply thoughtful novel. By focusing the viewpoint through the eyes of Daniel, the author is able to give readers an in-depth and personal look at the experiences and emotions that Daniel endured. From early life through abuse and tragedy to finding love and the challenges that came with that love, readers will see inside Daniels’s mind and see how the world treats him.

The writing style allows readers to follow along with Daniel’s thought process, drifting between past and present memories. Readers will wake up in the city with Daniel in the first chapter and be introduced to several characters before entering into Daniel’s own psyche. The process of getting to know Daniel through his memories and wondering thoughts gives readers an organic approach to discovering his story, rather than the author just laying out all the information in a linear fashion.

Anthony Antonio gives readers a sweeping story of love and treachery filled with looks into the human mind, their strengths and weakness, and leaves readers with a sense of trepidation. His poetic writing style adds to readers’ experience, helping them feel the emotions that Antonio puts on the page.

Survival is richly detailed and brimming with imagery. This memorable novel will enchant readers of historical and psychological fiction. The characters will remain with readers long after the last page has been read.
