Too bad you can't judge a book by its beautiful cover!

I really tried to like this book. I eagerly anticipated its arrival in the mail so I could begin reading it as soon as possible. Needless to say it didn't take long for disappointment to set in and I found myself becoming angry with what I was reading. I understand how karma, life lessons and free will is intertwined with each life we experience here on earth but this book really upset me as it seemed like it was FULL OF EXCUSES if you're a "bad" person. It's okay if you hurt everyone you come into contact with! It's okay if you murder and/or abuse people, children and animals because they asked for it! REALLY??? I can understand that to an extent ONLY because another being needed to learn a life lesson (and this was agreed upon by the beings involved before incarnating) but doesn't the "bad being" need to work on THEMSELVES at some point in that lifetime and grow as a human being? Shouldn't it be part of the soul's plan to try and WAKE UP from the miserable existence they're experiencing and inflicting on everyone else? This book angers me because it seems like it's saying if you're a really lousy excuse for a human being, don't worry, its okay. No matter how many you've hurt or destroyed, they asked for it so just continue being a jerk and lost soul for the rest of this lifetime.
Oh yeah, and for everyone that's been subjected to people doing awful things to you, make sure you THANK THEM for making the sacrifice to come here and subject you to years of abuse or whatever harm they may have caused you.
I usually don't write a review for books that I don't care for but this one just infuriated me!
