While in the asylum, Jordan still hears voices and believes he should be where he is, but not permanently. He knows he needs help, but can he find it with Dr. Seltzer? One night the door to his room is opened and another doctor comes to take him for therapy. He winds up in a pool of water that somehow helps him regress, with the doctor’s help, to visit his past. He visits various time periods from his past where he encounters himself at the particular age he was at the time the memory was made.
This regression was complicated and hard to follow exactly how this happened, but the story was filled with action and lots of tension which made it very interesting to read. There were a few swear words in the story for those readers who might be offended. There were only a couple of references to God, so if readers are looking for that particular element in a story, it is not very evident in this one. The characters were realistic and easy to relate to, making me eager to see who the story ended. It was short and very easy to read, and I quickly got involved in the tale.
The subtitle o: “inspirational Novel” suits this book very well. When I first started reading it, no, way before I started reading it, I was expecting something absolutely different, but whatever I got was quite astonishing and a really great new approach to our memories and self-development. David Allen constructed an absolutely realistic world with characters as if from life and not just fictional ones. The very concept of Pool of echoes was very interesting, though I didn’t really get how it actually allowed people to visit their memories and change stuff. I thought that it was cheating. Instead of overcoming his difficulties now, Jordan went to the past and gave hope to his old selves so that he could be reborn. I believe it’s cheating, but to come up with such idea is also great.
I am still confused with some things mainly with Nathan coming in all Jordan’s memories to kill him. Okay, I got that he was a demon, but then again if he was a demon it must have been Jordan’s subconscious that made him, so why couldn’t he not just think about him. But, well how he overcame him was also great. The paradox theory was also well though of. And it made quite a lot of sense. Another thing which was really confusing was why he had to kill himself – Jay 66, I mean he killed his future-self, which to me made absolutely no sense, but then again I might have missed something important when I wanted to understand the concept behind the voices.
Probably I just confused you even more, but what I would like to tell you is that this book is very easy to read. It does confuse you in the beginning, but you’ll find logical explanation to everything. Are you ready to dive into pool of echoes and to be reborn as a new and better person? Well, grab your copy now! I believe you will enjoy it a lot.
When I received this book for review, the author informed me that the book was an inspirational thriller and that he was inspired by Ted Dekker. I love Ted Dekker's fantasy/scifi novels (The Circle Trilogy and the Lost Books series) and I enjoyed the books that I have read from him that are thriller novels. Before I read Pool of Echoes, I had certain expectations knowing that the author was inspired by Ted Dekker.
Ted Dekker's novels often make you wonder "What in the world is going on?" and you usually don't fully understand the novel until you are finished with the series. It is always a crazy ride. This is also true of Pools of Echoes.
Pools of Echoes stars a main character who is in the mental ward. The whole book I was asking myself "Is any of this really happening in the 'real world' or is it all just a figment of the main characters imagination?". I was expecting crazy twists in the plot and everything that seemed to be real to not be real. This excitement and curiosity made this novel incredibly interesting.
The ending was surprising and interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good, clean thriller novel.
