This book is a very worthy read about the history of man's expanding self awareness in a fictional setting. Adam Capello, an adolescent boy learning to "Awaken" and visualize his past lives, narrates the story. There is a mystery involved, in which some eerie skull images appear to Adam in many of his past lives, and he is not sure why. This writer definitely shows some life experience in the work, which is skillfully constructed. The book kept my interest all the way through. I enjoyed it!

Adam is engaging and endearing as he regresses into past lives, sharing his experiences, challenges, humour, hopes, joy, pain, fears, regrets and philosophical views. The varied experiences and situations from the Awakenings often lead to questions that give pause for thought. Lost loves reunited after Pompeii is beautifully written, and an Estate Agent recounting his time as King Henry VIII is smile inducing, just brilliant!
A book that made me smile, consider and question, whilst the thread within kept me interested to the end. Something different, I'm intrigued to see what follows this....

Sadly I've only been able to read Chapter One so far as I'm too busy. but this book is worth commenting on. An amazing read from an amazing mind; Brilliant, highly original and it should be made into a movie.

I was surprised how much I liked this book as I had just downloaded it as a freebie. The writing style is relaxed, inviting the reader into the mind of the protagonist as he himself explores the minds of his previous personalities. I found myself putting my kindle down quite often to think about the questions posed in the chapters, thus transporting me to another place... perfect.
As for the ending? Well that would be telling, but it surprised and delighted me and I cannot wait for the sequal (hopefully the author is working on it already).
