Jim's Life is more than just a novel ... it's a journey of enlightenment! It's incredible how this work touches on so many different religious beliefs, but is merged into one universal message. I had to read the book again, because I missed the characters so much! It's a story that will haunt you; carry with you through your day. I know this piece has changed my life and will change many more!

A nice follow on to the Small Universe book. The author does a good job of developing a story to convey his perspective on spirituality. Both in this book and his Small Universe book he is able to weave the concepts of spirituality found in other books on the subject into a story that brings the concepts to life. Jim's Life is presented in a way that has you wondering in the first half of the book about its connection to the predecessor Small Universe story. When the connection is finally established you are left with an appreciation for the way Jason Matthews developed the story line. I found the book to be a very entertaining read that had me finding ways to create reading time.

There were a lot a tasks that didn't get attended to during the week I read Jim's Life. (And I was grumpy with people who wanted to interrupt me.) The world that author Jason Matthews created here was interesting, fun, and easy to enter into. The story itself was thought-provoking. Matthews managed to pack a lot of spiritual and metaphysical references into this story without it distracting from the flow and definitely without a trace of bias (except for the obvious: his choice of subject matter.) I also enjoyed the way Matthews deftly sidestepped stereotyping his characters, in particular the nomadic Christian evangelist and the TV talk show host. I found myself rooting for humanity about halfway through, and I'm not sure how humanity fared, in the end. But I do know this book passes muster for bedtime reading in our house, which means it has to be good-spirited and thought-provoking, and just imaginative enough to send us into contented dream time. I haven't read The Little Universe yet, but I'm planning to after enjoying Jim's Life so thoroughly.

I loved this book. I was lucky enough to read the first book: "The Little Universe" prior to reading this sequel. However, you can read either in any order which suits you.

I loved both of these books - I read every single page within a one weekend sitting. Jason Matthews has created a story which would excite any science fiction buff, metaphysical buff, or just a person who loves to read good stories. Both novels seem to make you think beyond the words of the page and to me this is what a good book should make you do.

I cannot wait to see what other books this author comes up with.

I always have the utmost admiration for people with a breadth of knowledge in a subject that reflects intense interest. In this book the author shows a working knowledge, if not a command, of many faiths and philosophies.

Soul transference -- unlike Matthews my knowledge of faiths and philosophies is scant, so I'd not heard of this before but the idea appeals, as does reincarnation.

Set in the mid 22nd century the story follows a 15 year old boy, Jim Ranck, who may or may not be the next Messiah. It's an entrancing read devoid of any kind of religious fervour as we follow Jim's path to his own enlightenment while on trial for serious crimes, all of which take place under invasive media scrutiny. There are obvious parallels to the story of Jesus, and there are the fervent believers, the vociferous non-believers and the fence sitters.

I found myself smiling for much of the time through this full-length novel. It's a thoughtful expounding of the author's views wrapped in a beautifully written fictional tale.

I didn't realise until I had finished this book that it's the sequel to Matthew's 'The little universe' -- which, of course, I'm now going to have to read. Hopefully I'll enjoy it as much as I did 'Jim's life'.

Jim's life is the sequel to the book 'The Little Universe' by Jason Matthews. You don't need to read The Little Universe first, but I guarantee that if you like this book, you will want to read the first one. If you are into spirituality and the inner journey toward self improvement you will find this book fascinating, fun and informative.

Jim's Life, the sequel to The Little Universe by Jason Matthews, addresses some deep subjects: the essence of a person, the search to understand our place and purpose in the cosmos, eternal life, past lives and changed lives, the "interconnectedness" between all life forms and the material/spiritual universe we live in, transcendence, love, the power of healing, and light. In addition, but somewhat more on the negative side: selfishness, egoism, separation, lust for power and control, and close mindedness--along with many of the other human traits that those particular attributes denote.

The story ties in well with the first book, yet is not wholly dependent upon it--which is good. Readers who turn its pages will find it a good story unto itself, with only a few questions throughout whose answers can only be found in the first book.

Reading Jim's Life is largely reminiscent of Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land, which is one of my all time favorite Sci-fi pieces. Jim's life drew me in simply because I absolutely love the subject matter. Anything that speaks of the "Bigger Picture," or the evolution and transcendence of humanity (and its individuals) onward toward our higher selves, or our loftier potentials, has my vote. Especially if it's rendered objectively, which this is, I was glad to find out.

The story itself has many layers, rich with conflict and resolution. There are about the right number of characters and their developing stories set the stage and aid in the emergence of the various themes. I can only think of one or two questions throughout the rendering that were left unanswered, but I think that is the case because many esoteric subjects, by their very nature, don't offer an immediate answer. I expect to wake up one night and go...
