The only criticism I have of the book is that it doesn't explore the metaphysical aspect of reincarnation more deeply. And (it appeared to me) that the author tried to do this in several places, but each successive attempt was merely repetitive.
But the book's greatest quality was that it kept me enthralled. At times my eyes almost skimmed because I wanted to get to the next story or for the plot to unravel further. At times, I had to keep my eyes from inadvertantly glancing down one paragraph to find out what the dramatic ending would be. Stephen King does this to us all the time, by the way -- makes us wait, makes us wait, and then dares us not to look at the answer 'accidentally.'
And when I saw the ending coming, I saw it pretty much as Peter Proud did. Just as he did, just as he did. Okay, maybe I saw it coming a few pages before. But I still read to the end, and re-read the last paragraphs.
I wanted more.
I had the good fortune to meet the author, Max Ehrlich while I was still in high school. He was lecturing at UCLA. He was quite gracious and generous with his time.
for this novel.
without me revealing much of the story(to the end),i will say this is a story about a man who was murdered (in 1946) and then reincarnated as another completely different man(peter proud) who, around the age of 28,knew something was wrong because of all these strange"dreams" he was having. or were these dreams at all? maybe these were recollections of a previous life??? peter starts out on a journey of vague memories,determined to find out,"who was i"? he travels to the northeastern states,searching...searching...for places,landmarks he remembers.
this is a great page turner. i kept wanting to know what will happen to peter
proud??? my only complaint is,i wish the author had written the end differently.
i WANTED the murdered man to have his revenge on the person who ended his life.
not evil revenge,but this person admitting to the murder so long ago and then
the dead man being at peace and peter proud going on with his life-not ending
up the way he did-the predictable. that is why i say,"ahhhh...the possibilities.
Maybe my theory is old, I don't know.
In The Reincarnation of Peter Proud, I'm glad that the author had the main character visit a psychologist to try to determine exactly what was happening in his life.
The romance, suspense, and final ending were well written with believable characters. I saw the movie in 1975 and purchased the book recently to revisit the subject.
Good job, Mr. Ehrlich.

Absolutely fun reading especially for the avant-garde readers out there. It seems that I reread this book every 5-10 years to reabsorb the in- depth feelings of the characters.Published on November 21, 2013 by Jack Berger
