I had high hopes for this book from reading the synopsis but was disappointed in what I got sadly. Instead of something in the paranormal realm concerning the afterlife what this is in reality is a collection of 3 contemporary short stories not counting the first life which is only with us for a few pages (the third much longer than the first 2) tied together loosely by a recurring “afterlife” scene where out hero gets to watch scenes from his life and past lives, then gets a future life for the longer 3rd story.
While it was somewhat interesting it was also very verbose, the writing was stilted most of the time and the characters were all just mainly involved in a “day-in-the-life” plot 90% of the time. The last 20% of the book was much more interesting since his career choice added some much-needed action and drama.
Bottom Line: Yet another book that had a wonderful premise that was not realized but I was forced to scan many pages to prevent this from becoming a DNF, if there was some higher purpose it did not reach me, throw in a couple of spelling errors, the overuse of words that nobody ever uses (this guy “emoted” more than any character I have ever read) so 3 Stars it is and without that last 20% it might have been less.
