In Leveled Mind Confused Heart author Angelique narrates the story of Adrienne Whitney a college student experiencing the heartache that is usually found when trying to discern love from lust.  At the onset of the story Whitney is a sophomore at a university in Florida trying to maintain a long distance relationship with Elliott, her boyfriend of seven months who’s back home in their home state of Georgia.  Although the relationship is fairly new Adrienne has already begun to fill indifferent for Elliott; as evidenced by her lack of excitement upon seeing him again for the first time in months. 

Adrienne knows that her relationship with Elliott has run its course but she doesn’t know how to end it.  She stays with Elliott although she’s clearly unhappy and almost every conversation leads into a petty argument as a result of this unhappiness.  It takes a newfound interest in another student at her university that she meets on-line named Zephyr for Adrienne to finally sever all ties with Elliott.  There’s an undeniable chemistry between Adrienne and Zephyr and an easy friendship ensues.

However when the friendship blossoms into friends with benefits confusion rears its ugly head because Zephyr is hesitant to define their relationship as boyfriend/girlfriend.  Although Adrienne really desires more she’s willing to accept less and this willingness will end up defining their entire relationship. The back and forth and endless emotional strain that Adrienne places upon herself to hold on to Zephyr drags on for the majority of the novel making for a tedious and at some points redundant read.

Another issue that hindered the novel was that the story was told in first person and that the time frame of the story was very inconsistent jumping around creating a very choppy read.  Unfortunately the developmental issues detracted from what had the potential to be a powerful novel on the highlighting the damaging effects of staying in an unhealthy relationship.

What did you like about the book?
The subject matter is very relevant to young women who are entering into relationships especially the way it demonstrates how settling for less can be very detrimental. 

What did you dislike about the book?
The concept of the novel was good but it was negatively impacted by the poor developmental aspects.

What could the author do to improve the book?
Consulting an editor to repair the developmental issues.

Hi Ramki,Good Day!, have been practising EW for cpolue of months now, not just in financial instruments but then I'm also using it for studying customer satisfaction psychology, IT ticket volume patterns, horse racing and I see EW in there as well. After all, it is crowd psychology and every day when I see charts it makes me clear and then I go wrong sometimes and I keep correcting the countsRecently in my blog had mentioned about Divis Labs reaching 1200 to 1225 levels when it was 1025, and it just did exactly the same way of course few points lesserI recently read your book on EW, it was wonderful it not only was interesting to read but then is worth reading multiple times to refresh ones concepts thoroughly. Shows your passion for EW and no wonder you are doing it for last 30 years, I want to be as passionate as you are and I spend atleast 6 to 8 hours reading EW across all instruments. Money making is just a by product of the understanding. Trust me earning money doesn't give me that satisfaction, of course it is required but what gives me more pat on the back is when the counts go right as we studied and studied and studiedNow I'm researching parallely on EW & Ishimoku indicator. The reason why I compare is to make less risky trades with making less loss and reasonable profitNow coming to RCOM, what a wonderful explanation of the chart, I have almost read this particular blog more than 5 times. Every time when I see it, it just highlights how much wisdom you carry on price movements by mastering EWA quick question though, RCOM made a low of 46.6 in Aug (NSE recorded) and reversed from there on.Even going by Ishimoku, the kumo cloud acted as a resistance so far has turned to support around 55 to 60 levelsI believe the downfall is over and it is time to buy at decent/significant dip. Your thoughts on this pleaseRegardsNaga
