I wish I could say I liked this book.
Kurlylocs
I was so absorbed by the revelations and accessibility of the characters that I read this book in 3 sittings - it was a joy to experience!
Moneen
Unfortunately, the story was told in a very choppy manner and switched character perspective numerous times within a single chapter.

Format: Paperback
Though the description makes it sound as though the actual story begins once Ari's client disappears, the fact is that the book actually travels through Ari's life and the disappearance doesn't happen until near the end. As a character, Ari is fascinating. She's a bit unusual but still goes through the every day trials that all of us do. As a story, it's mostly just interesting. I wouldn't say I was intrigued or anxiously flipping from page to page to see what happens next. Basically, I sat back and watched Ari's life unfold.

The best part of this book for me was the spiritual context. Several places take different religious aspects and pick them apart. This lets you join in the discussion in your head and figure out your own beliefs. Later, other serious topics (such as politics) enter and once again you get to check out new perspectives and figure out where you yourself lie in the mix.

This book is well written and easy to read while at the same time causing you to think about both your life and others, as well as the possibilities of our lives and mortality.

It's easy to fall in love with Ari the main character. We experience Ari's life and deep analysis of herself and those around her through her childhood, teen years, adult hood and professional life in vivid and colorful detail. I was so absorbed by the revelations and accessibility of the characters that I read this book in 3 sittings - it was a joy to experience!

The idea of a therapist with knowing intuition whose dream experiences guide her was quite intriguing. What's interesting about this book is the education into Jewish studies.

It begins with the adult Ari who is studying to be a psychologist. Flash back to Ari growing up, her relationship with her family, her first love, and her graduate studies. it appears she is a young girl who has it all. Until she sees her first clinical patient. As she counsels James, Ari finds her own thoughts and feelings mirror his. To learn how to best serve her client, she enters into her own therapy sessions with life changing results.

I wish I could say I liked this book. The premise of therapist/shaman/mystic has great potential. Turns out it was mediocre and disappointing at best. Where are the editing police when you need them?

By Christine Cunningham on April 27, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
This story is about the coming of age of Ari. The story begins with Ari studying for her Bat Mitzvah with Evan. She finds intellectual fulfillment in the study and later finds romantic fulfillment with Evan. The story ebbs and flows with Ari's experience with the paranormal as well as her inner conflict with wanting to be accepted for herself and her conflict with religion.

I could relate to the way Ari questioned her place as a woman within the patriarchal scene of religion. Her questions were never really answered and in the end, she has to choose the life of a selfless (in the eyes of her religion) or to pursue a self-promoting life.

I really enjoyed the ideas put forth in this book. Unfortunately, the story was told in a very choppy manner and switched character perspective numerous times within a single chapter. The formatting left something to be desired as well. I wish the story would have been more emotionally compelling. The author seemed to play it as safe as the character. I did appreciate the nod towards Jewish tradition and feel I learned some new information.
