This book is bread baked from over-worked dough: flat and tough to get through.
That is the gist of the book. There really isn't anything more to it than that, but its simplicity does not mean that it is uninteresting. While the beginning was a little slow for me, once Waters takes you into the character's past lives, that is where the book really takes off.
Each life ends with a summary page that indicates birth marks, facial and body features, and other characters that reoccur in each life. Since this first book only covers the first four lives, I assume this is to help the reader keep track of things. I'm guessing that in subsequent books this information will prove important.
Each of the lives is fascinating in itself. With each, you are transported to a different time, and introduced to an entirely different way of life. I loved the way Waters is able to drop you into each life and let you get immersed into the world of the story. I remember after finishing with each life, thinking, "That one was really good, but I'll bet the next life won't be half as interesting." Each and every time, I was proved wrong. It seemed that each life was even better than the last one.
The character keeps switching back and forth between male and female with each new life, which I found very interesting. And each character (except maybe for the first one) is sympathetic. I found myself caring about what happens to them with every successive life.
To sum up, I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading the next one. Whether or not you believe in reincarnation, I think you'll find Infinite Sacrifice to be a very engaging read with many great characters.
The flaws with the book are in the writing. The third person narrative is somewhat flat and historically vague. Additionally, it is difficult to keep up with the characters over time. Finally, the conclusion with the so-called "soul guide" is overly long and somewhat incompatible with the writing style of the book. That being said; however, I will purchase the next book in this series as this premise is very intriguing. With tighter writing and a clearer narrative, this would be an excellent book. Both the author and story have great potential and I recommend this book while it is free on Kindle.
Every life lived throughout the first three books is its own separate story, paced wonderfully fast and deeply charismatic. Having been a believer of the "life after life" idea for years, I found it wonderfully refreshing how this story opened up still more thought provoking concepts for me to ponder as I experience the roller coaster of swashbuckling heroism, heart wrenching romance or ideological inspiration the main character finds him (or her, depending on the life) self working through as challenges rise up to meet him head on.
An excellent read, and very well recommended!
