The Next Buddah
Available At : Amazon , Smashwords or Lulu
In the sequel to “A View From A Height” we once again escape into the realm of the paranormal and re-incarnation. As they say to “live twice is no more remarkable than to live once”. But what about incarnation, to be able to see yourself and the problems of the future. This then is the story of An Dong, the son of a Vietnamese woman who was raped by her French master. Born during pre-war time in Vietnam he is raised during the slavery times on the rubber plantations owned by the French.
Writing down his memories he remembers back to when he was born, the cruelty heaped upon the slaves by the masters of the plantation and his first encounters with Krishna and how he saved him, Of Ha Linh, the girl he meets who will become his future wife and the children they will have. The memories from the past help him to see what he has to live through to what his life will be like in the future.
Now working in China he meets and marries Lahamo. Now in this life he has to take control and do what his dreams lead him to do.They must leave their children with their grandparents and go across the mountains and fight the monster,the infamous Chinese general Tong who is bringing his army across China. Here he remembers back on the Auto Biography of Xiao Chen Bang(whom we meet in the first book)
His fear says “To exist is to dream. To dream is to exist” So who is he really, Brahma, Tong Ye, Arjuna or even Krishna. One thing he is the God of his dreams. He is each and everyone. As he writes this story he remembers back how he relates things about his mother and his birth, Tong, who was a slave, Ha Linh, Lahamo he asks himself, who did I write this story for.
As with the first book, the author grabs the attention of the reader. Although fictional one wonders could this really happen..I would like to thank the author for giving me the chance to read this book as with his first one. Reading the first one gives more meaning to the second one.
