    Paul tells his story of love in a way that expresses his poetic nature; gifting us with a vision of true love and what a soul mate is. Hallelujah is a raw, unique look inside the lives of two people that found something rare. I highly recommend it if you are searching for understanding the human condition, especially this thing called love.

    Reading this book was like hitching a ride on a time machine to a nightmare that Paul lived through. The event itself was something that has forever changed so many people. This recollection is written with eloquence and heart, albeit broken. This book is the culmination of many years of anger, frustration and pain. For Paul to be able to put it on paper so well is no easy feat. It's written so beautifully. I took a long time to finish because as a reader it takes its toll, emotionally. My eyes were streaming as Paul laments the loss of his love. The book is deeply moving and highly reliable for anyone that has lost a loved one. It's literally a work of art. So many memoir books out there are superficial or trite, but Hallelujah is a game changer. Reading it is like living his story and that's the making of a tremendous writer. I look forward to what he comes up with next. As a fan and reader of his works, I'm hooked!

    It has taken me quite some time to find my way through this book. I have known this story since before he wrote this book, but reading it? It is arresting. The raw emotion, the pure pain, the truest joy and the deepest love are presented in a tragically beautiful whirl wind of grief and elation, sorrow and hopeful expectation, loss and atonement, a happiness this world has never seen before and a despair that could take the world with it. Never have I seen light and dark dance so strikingly. Poetry and stories pulled together with such a stunning grace. My heart could hardly take it. I needed to stop to breath and cry many times. This was my first book by Paul Sexton and I am told that it was not the first written, so I have read out of order. I WILL be purchasing the others. I will just have to take my time and really soak them in as I did with this one. He really brought Lexi to life for me. I felt my heart breaking as I read along. I was devastated for days. I felt as though I were... More > standing in their world watching their lives unfold and unable to help. The passion he writes with is intense. He truly has his "heart on his sleeve", or in this case, his "pen". He has nothing left in him that is not given in this book. Whether you are in love, out of love or have lost love, this book will speak strongly to you. Reading this has opened my eyes to so very much more than anything you could expect. Read this, please. As emotionally raw as it is, it is by far the most profound thing you will read in a very long time.< Less

    I just finished this book yesterday. I recently went through a heartbreak of my own and was worried it would make me cry (again). It did make me cry, several times. But it also lifted me up and encouraged strength. I have to quote something that really made a difference in my own suffering. "Look, I'm not getting caught in the fairytale princess ideal of perfection here. That's what was done to me, the whole "I love you in 4 out of 5 ways" thing. That's just a head fuck, believe me. What I'm saying is sure there are always going to be things you don't love about someone, small habits little this and that, a particular foolish view. But is it something you can live with, something you will accept, come to terms with and be okay until the end? If the latter, then you are not really loving the person for who they are today, but who you IMAGINE they could be if they just changed in this little way or two. That's the cause of the suffering; that's the head fuck." That... More > one paragraph made a difference to me, and it only one of many things that Paul Sexton brings to the forefront as he shares this incredible journey with the readers. He brought Lexy to life, and I didn't like her at first, but as he shared all the little things about her, I began to fall in love with her too. I could totally SEE the love grow and the maturity that began to take place. Between the poetry and the stories shared, I was sucked into this love story and at the end...when he lost her, I felt his anguish and disbelief. It was too sad, too much. It made me angry for them both. It was SO much of what many of us have suffered at one time or another, such a HUMAN experience. I WANTED THEM TO HAVE THEIR HAPPY ENDING dammit. It was all so real....and surreal. You have to read this, especially if you are hurting. You will realize that you are not alone. It was incredibly brave of this writer to share this soul baring journey. If I could have reached out and hugged him at the end, I would have. Buy it, read it and share it with your friends.< Less

    However you feel about love, this book will support your stance. It's a story about love in all of it's beauty, insanity, hope, glory, darkness and then some. It's the most honest book you'll ever read about love.
