Seven Point Eight is an exciting and fast-paced novel that took me a while to get into but ultimately had me hooked. Paul is a physicist who creates a project using several talented psychics and people who can travel to other realms. Funding the project is Max, a mysterious and enigmatic man who is in love with one of the more talented psychics, Tahra. It just so happens that Paul also loves her. Between the love triangle and the experiment itself, the book is incredibly entertaining. It moved back and forth between character view-points effortlessly and the author uses a format that is used for writing TV series and it works very well for this particular story. The editing is also done to perfection. The characters are very well written and I found myself becoming invested in what happened to them. The twists and turns, especially near the end, were surprising and made it all well worth the read. Although it is part of a series, it can be read on its own with no problem. I can’t say that the cover caught my eye. It does draw attention to the involvement of the pyramids in the story but for me it didn’t particularly grab my eye. I loved the story and can’t wait to read the next book in the series as well as the first one that I missed so I can see how it all started.
Heaven Is In Your Future is a spiritual book that looks at the idea that there is actually a hidden meaning in the bible saying that all the souls on Earth will go to Heaven, not just a select few. Each chapter in the book begins with some scripture from various bible versions that are then followed by questions about the scripture and answers. These aren’t the usual Christian bible study type questions that are often asked about scripture, instead they tend to dig deeper and expand the ideas written in the bible. The writing is very in-depth and, for me, makes quite a bit of sense along with providing comfort. Due to the fact that the material is fairly “meaty”, the format is perfect because it is set up that you can read a chapter at a time and give yourself time to think about the ideas suggested rather than keep reading onward. The editing is also done extremely well. The cover is perfect for the contents of the book as it shows a stairway to Heaven. I enjoyed this book although it did take me longer than usual to read due to the in-depth content. I found it much more comforting than the usual held beliefs of some religions today. It is well worth reading by anyone looking to expand and stretch their spiritual outlook.
