Randall Lender was a Wanted Man. He was wanted by the Clergy of the Major Organized Religions, the Governments and the New World Order, but that was the least of his problems. After going out of body (astral projection) Randall Lender suddenly found himself in such a paradox where the surrealism meets dilemma. Within this phenomenon of Looking Through the Hour Glass he unf ...more

This review first appeared on my blog:

In this book, Randall Leder is a sort of spiritual guru who gives talks and seminars about how organized religion and the existing power structure are not necessary in order to fulfill one's destiny and humanity. One night he astral projects out of his body and ends up in a car next to a murdered woman just in time for the police to shine a light into his new eyes (the body of Johnny, an infamous mob hitman) and arres

Unfortunately I had a hard time reading this book. I just could not connect with the character and the story. The language has nothing to do with it. The book and I are just not compatible. I do love the question behing it though - "What happens if one's soul gets lost after leaving the host body?" it has been a topic of drunk conversations and weird nights with family and friends but sadly reading about it is just not the same. Maybe I'll try to read it again sometime.

Books are like children to their authors. Somebody said that, I’m sure. I have no idea who, but somebody had to have said it before me. There’s a lot of love and caring and time that go into making a book happen. I know this. I honor this. However, I’m still about to disembowel someone’s kid.

Before I say anything else, I do want to say that I really liked the concept behind Spirit. Someone travelling in the astral can get lost. A lot of books on out of body experience warn of such things. Getti

First off let me say that the synopsis of this book is what got me to say yes when I was approached to review this book. I haven't read a lot of books on astral projection but it's an interesting topic; one I definitely wanted to see explored. Not only does the blurb speak of astral projection but it delves further by asking 'What happens if one's soul gets lost after leaving the host body?' Randall Lender may have bitten off more than he could chew when his spirit landed in a wanted criminal w ...more

I love paranormal adventure books and by the description I thought that this might fit into what I would enjoy reading. I have never read anything from Andrew Feder before so Spirit is the first book for me from that author.

The Author places a disclaimer in his books "Due to his Selective Tourette's Syndrome, the following contains some profanity and obscenities that might burn your little eyes and ears. So read at your own risk because this is your last and only warning. You've now been warned.

Spirit by Andrew Feder is a great twist on spirituality. Delving into the world of astral projection, this book will definitely leave you wondering..."What If".

Randall Lender went from rock bottom to being one of the world's greatest motivational speakers. Teaching what he has learned about life, love, and spirituality, Randall is beloved by most of the world, with one minor exception...The Guilders.

The Guilders, leaders of religion who think it has to be their way or no way, don't like what Ran

Randall Lender has alot of enemies!
He was once a very wealthy man, but has since lost his money and now he is very vocal in sharing his beliefs against secret societies, organized religion and government. So needless to say he has made some very important people angry, and the really just want him gone. Unfortunately for Randall that's the least of his worries because one afternoon while astral projecting his soul is rerouted and he winds up in someone else's body.
Could it get worse than that?

Randall Lender was a marked man. Once a very rich businessman, he had lost all his wealth and in the process found himself. Now, his philosophies of love, peace, and connection were starting to annoy a lot of very powerful people. Randall has no idea what he’s up against and that his soul could be in jeopardy.

One day after practicing astral projection, Randall finds himself in another body. The body is that of Johnny McKenzie, a mob hit man. Moreover, Johnny (or rather Randall stuck in Johnny’s

As someone who has never been creative and sometimes struggles with what to say in my book reviews, I can appreciate how difficult it must be to write an entire novel. It is this admiration for authors that led me to make my personal rule of not giving up on a book until I've read 100 pages.

There are three reasons why I leave a book unfinished:

I couldn't get into it because I'm not interested in the subject matter.
I don't like the writing.
Something in the book offends me personally.

MY THOUGHTS; What would you do if you went to sleep and woke up in someone else's body? And that someone had just murdered a woman. This is what happens to Randall Lender. Randall is cuffed, booked and put in jail. The man's body he is in is a hit man for the mob. He tries to tell people he isn't who they think he is, but they think he is faking to get a insane plea. So they ship him off to evaluated and the physiologist says he is sane. He is appointed a Public Defender. His Public Defender is ...more

I was asked a little while ago if I would read and review this book on my blog. I agreed because the synopsis really drew me in. When I was e-mailed about the book I was warned about the strong language that was used in the book as well. I guess that is what really turned me off to the book. I thought the well written prologue was the beginning of great things to come but I was saddened when it went drastically downhill from there. I'm not opposed to the occasional "four letter" word but used as ...more

Randall Lender is a wanted man. His radical ideas annoy governments, organized religions, and elements of the dark side. a dark warlock manages to trick Randall into the body of a mob "hitman" who subsequently is put on trial for murder. Now with the help of his lawyer, his fifteen-year-old daughter and his mentor, Randy must find a way to escape the warlock's plan which will ultimately lead to Randy's execution and spiritual "marooning". This is a very unusual story with discussion of astral pr ...more

The use of strong language in this book really detracted from the story for me. I had the same problem when reading the book Crazy School. I don't mind the occasional f-bomb or three but when it's constant it really gets to me. It's a shame though since this author is evidently talented and the intelligently written prologue had me initially hooked. The paranormal premise is intriguing, however, I ended up not being able to finish the book.
