Mini Review ~ Spirit


Published: January 14th 2010 by AuthorHouse

Details: Paperback, 356 pages


Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Randall Lender was a Wanted Man. He was wanted by the Clergy of the Major Organized Religions, the Governments and the New World Order, but that was the least of his problems. After going out of body (astral projection) Randall Lender suddenly found himself in such a paradox where the surrealism meets dilemma. Within this phenomenon of Looking Through the Hour Glass he unfortunately after leaving his physical body ended up into another's. This was his paradox. This was his dilemma. This was his surrealism. And regrettably for Lender this was the real quantum problem. Randall Lender found himself on an unexpected journey with its twists and turns until he realizes that he must die to live for his return to his former body. And now the elixir of questions remains: What? How? And Why? Then you'll ask why me? Why him? And What If?


I was asked a little while ago if I would read and review this book on my blog.  I agreed because the synopsis really drew me in.  When I was e-mailed about the book I was warned about the strong language that was used in the book as well.  I guess that is what really turned me off to the book.  I thought the well written prologue was the beginning of great things to come but I was saddened when it went drastically downhill from there.  I'm not opposed to the occasional "four letter" word but used as a regular part of conversation it's a turn off.  As a result of this I easily lost interest and was not able to finish the book.

On the plus side I did like the premise of the story and the author is a very talented man but the excessive strong language is what did his book in for me.

I felt exactly the same way---I couldn't finish this one either d/t the language!
