The author of Soul Identity presents a fascinating fantasy for his readers to contemplate and savour. He immerses us in the adventures of a computer security geek and his "hot" Russian female counterpart and allows us to theorize as to our own feelings concerning the possibility of reincarnation. Would any of us be interested in engaging the services of a company that would act as a depository for our money, life experiences, and other valuables, and return them to us in our next life because, through the use of modern technology, they have developed a system of tracking and identifying souls through time? If there were such an organization, how long would it be before someone would hatch a scheme to infiltrate and usurp control??
Want the answers to these and a myriad of other questions, then buy a copy of Soul Identity and get ready for an entertaining, thought provoking and engaging read with plenty of action for the thrill seekers among you. I guarantee that even the most jaded reader will be hooked by page twenty.
Turns out that the eyes ARE the mirrors of the soul - and the eyes, like fingerprints, are unique - Soul Identity's members can register their Soul Identities and can bank their money/investments etc for themselves for the next go 'round - in other words - if you are a believer in reincarnation you can have your cake and eat it too!
Scott and the good guys at SI soon see the problem and also see that SI needs some tweeking too...Someone within the organization is stealing members away, saying SI doesn't represent the organization anymore - Scott and Soul Indentity members work to get Soul Identity back and stop the bad guys - They go literally all around the world to work out what is going on and take us on this wild ride too!
The premise is really interesting and Batchelder's style is so easy you get caught up in the chase - very entertaining book and I look forward to sequels with this great bunch!
Very unique premise and deep thoughts and nonstop action - good combination!
Unfortunately for me, the beginning of the book is a really fun read. The main character is a "white hat" security consultant who's employing a few fun tricks to poke holes in the security at a major airport. It's a little unrealistic, but entertaining. Then the plot thickens as he is hired by a secretive organization that claims to connect people to their past lives. It's an interesting idea, and it was enough to make me think that the book might not be so bad. Oh, how wrong I turned out to be.
First, there's the technical inaccuracy. The book is chock full of howlers that'll make savvy readers yearn for the rigor and attention to detail of a Sandra Bullock movie. The interesting parts aren't remotely realistic, and the parts that are even somewhat realistic aren't at all clever. One pivotal scene has the main character "hacking" the antagonist's website... by entering a url. That's right--the main character is a high-powered security consultant, and the best enemy the author can come up with isn't smart enough to disallow anonymous access to the website's admin page. (At least the author has the decency to have the main characters admit to how easy it was: "we didn't even have to use any buffer overruns!" Never mind that they'd almost certainly have tried SQL injection or XSS long before they looked for a buffer overrun exploit.)
But that's not all. The love story, such as it is, seems to have been written by a fifteen-year-old. Guy meets hot Russian programmer, goes gaga, and then she (a) sleeps with him immediately and (b) isn't sleeping with anyone else.Read more ›
