Put down whatever you are reading and pick up this book.

What an absolute gem of a read from a place of sheer brilliance. Right from the get-go Adam is so relatable and engaging and you just want more and more from each page.

The whole subject matter is thought-provoking and it has you tumbling around thoughts in your head, making you ask yourself who you really are, what your place in the world is and just who those around you are.

It's brilliantly conceptual, yet simple and one of the most un-put-downable reads I have come across in a very, very long time. Bravo.

The Awakening of Adam Capello by M W Taylor

Fascinating subject for a book - looking at multiple previous existences and entering the mind, experience and environment of other lives previously lived by the main protagonist, Adam Capello.

The subject is a bit like writing itself - inhabiting other characters and lives to provide a glimpse into their thoughts and feelings.

This thought-provoking book raises some big questions, particularly around what it is to be human, how we interact with each other (or not - with so many of us absorbed and distracted by technology). It explores a simpler way of living and asks if perhaps we've lost the capacity to recognise and appreciate this in our constant striving for diversions and stimulation. It's clear that the author has been doing some deep thinking, which is reflected in this book.

I have to admit, I couldn't put this book down. It was original, gripping and an overall great read. I have recommended to my wife and would to anyone curious. Hope to see another edition from the author in the future.

Review by: Blaine Zaid on July 26, 2014 :
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!

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).
