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.
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'.
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...Read more ›
