Review by: Amy Taylor on May 24, 2014 :
Avatar Syndrome is an enlightening and thought-provoking journey that marries science and fiction with perfect precision to bring us a thoroughly entertaining story.

Author Stan I.S. Law uses humor and wit to keep the story fresh and gripping as you experience his world page by page. What I love about Stan I.S. Law’s work is you always learn something and it leaves you pondering long after you have finished the story. While this is fiction there is tremendous truth to it. Stan I.S. Law’s incredible background in science and religious studies provides him the unique ability to take us on a ride that is both educational and thought-provoking.

Anne is a complex and enduring character that melts our hearts right from the start with her intriguing nature. When Anne and Dr. John Brent (Director of Montreal Neurological Institute) come together to explore nuances of the brain, Anne’s special situation and the effects of dementia as they delve into the realities faced by this phenomenon and its implications.

For a rewarding experience and fascinating adventure into the power of the mind I highly recommend it!

Fantastic Book!

“A fresh, intelligent and invigorating book which forces one to reevaluate their perspective of spirituality and science and the connection they undoubtedly hold. The author is an enlightened being and it is very evident in this masterpiece.”

[Taken directly from a 5 star review by Michael P. Tinsley (MO USA), on the Amazon.com. I have nothing to add except my total agreement.]

Review by: Adam Kerry on March 27, 2011 :
If you love art, music, philosophy, beauty, and… science, then read this book. Also, seldom does one find such an abundance of poetic and spiritual themes as feed our soul in this novel. This book might never make the sex-filled, gory, steamy, thrillers of New York best sellers, but is it a true runaway success for me.

Review by: D Piecuch on March 26, 2011 :
This is another excellent book from Stan Law. It chronicles the tale of the main character (Anne) and her family and friends from an awkward and troubled childhood to messiah of higher truth.

The author brings an unparalleled knowledge and blend of ancient religious teachings, spirituality, and science, and he crafts them into a tale that is both a very thought provoking and invigorating read.

This was the 2nd Stan Law book that I read, and I can not wait to start my 3rd, the Sequel to The Avatar Syndrome titled Headless World.

Review by: Marlon (Marvin) D. Clark on March 23, 2011 :
There are books that fill time and there are books that fill the soul. The Avatar belongs in the latter category. I defy anyone to read it and not retain a lingering feeling that we are so much more than just flesh and blood. A brilliant book, Mr. Law. Congratulations.
I’m looking forward to the sequel, the Headless World, which is already on Smashwords. What a feast!

Review by: Hanna K. Loda on March 22, 2011 :
Stan Law must have done considerable research to write this novel. He is convincing, entertaining and deeply philosophical, yet never sacrificing the storyline.

Anne, who progresses from a troubled, taciturn girl to become a world famous virtuoso demonstrates spiritual growth that is enticing and fascinating. His other characters are equally finely drawn while Anne, the heroin, is absolutely irresistible. Thank you Mr. Law.

A rare literary jewel to be savored, enjoyed and absorbed with an open mind, which, even as I read it, seemed to open to an ever-wider reality. I you feel you are more than flesh and bones, you’ll love this story. An extraordinary book.

Review by: Anetta Bach on March 21, 2011 :
I read this book within 3 days of purchase. I tried to review it, yet my thoughts seem to stray in too broad a field. The book is a splendid journey of a soul in search of itself. Rather than complicate the issue, I’ll share with you one of the five star reviews from the Amazon, written by Michael P. Tinsley, of Poplar Bluff, MO, USA more than 3 years ago:

“A fresh, intelligent and invigorating book which forces one to reevaluate their perspective of spirituality and science and the connection they undoubtedly hold. The author is an enlightened being and it is very evident in this masterpiece.”

I agree with every word.

Review by: BozenaH on March 19, 2011 :
I read this book in paperback. Now, once again I run through it at a single sitting. It is a fresh now as it was when I first read it. I can but repeat what I wrote on the Amazon some time ago:

“I reread this book, each time discovering new meanings in the journey that Anne endured under such difficult conditions. The depth of philosophy and wisdom in The Avatar Syndrome becomes fully apparent only after the second, perhaps even the third reading. It is an ideal novel for Book Clubs as it yields an endless stream of subjects for discussion.”
