Like my above title says, halfway through still enjoying it. Would have preferred an Audible.com version. Its a new writer with his own recipe, and with fiction, Different is great.
Oldsoul was one of those books that when I first heard about it I was thinking it was going to be like most of the other books I've read recently in which the main character can communicate mentally with other people, like telepathy, except he could communicate with dead souls as well. I was completely wrong. For me it was more like reading mission impossible or bourne identity with the addition of the main character getting feedback and advice from relatives, other oldsouls etc through his mind, with the help of Erin.
I couldn't help but picture the story as an action movie as I read, huge all out fight scenes including missions and explosions and flying cars. I also think it would make a great graphic novel and through the author interview I discovered that is what he originally hoped for this story.
As the main character is a young policeman at 18 years old, this appeals to a younger audience and with a less focus on romance and more on battle, a great book recommendation for boys.
I was also a little surprised to find a focus on family ties as well. There is a story connecting Jason with his father and his grandfather that really appealed to me. I liked the struggle that he is put through, he has some hard decisions to make and only with the help of the other oldsouls is he able to fight back. After all you can't really be considered for the title of superhero without a sidekick or two.
