The subject is great. I love this higher level understanding of spirit and ego. Unfortunately the delivery was painful. I couldn't get past the never ending series of examples. For every new word spoken there were 3 to10 examples of that word. She must have been a preschool teacher, probably a very good one. But the subject is for those with expanded consciousness and broader comprehension of mind and spirit. Yet Penny the author, causes you to speed up and slow down the whole way through. Me and my wife began laughing after a while. Also frustrating were these compilations of well thought out phrases, placing together a series of words in an attempt to sound articulate yet coming across choppy, distorting the rhythm and the flow of what I think could have been a very interesting subject.
Classic example of a writer getting in her own way.
Narration was good. Not good enough to overcome the awful climax of this story. It's as if I were on this never ending scavenger hunt, where the grand prize was a religious sermon. The poor woman he was telling the story to would have stood up and said "at first I thought you were nuts, but now I'm sure of it. Get out!" Look, It did not translate as it was intended to. Not as awe-striking as the the writer believed. Over dramatizing the listeners reactions cheapened the experience. The connections went from interesting in the beginning to monotonous, and just kept on. But the biggest offense to me was the perspective that the World Trade Center tragedy was driven by "God" letting us know we had lost our way and this is our punishment. That is irresponsible to say the very least. No, it's not the overly religious freaks that bombed the World Trade Center. The ones that believe in the same kind of religious propaganda this book is slinging. Fear mongering is old school, threats of eternal damnation is flat out medieval. You religious fanatics need to step up your game.It's crap like this that turns people away from religion and will most likely turn them away from this book.
