Mary Pat | 2186 comments Suggested break down of reading so that you can check in and let us know how you're doing. The following breakdown is purely a suggestion and is therefore not set in stone.

Rather than putting dates for each section I've done it so that it takes into account that not everybody will necessarily have the book at the same time.

Week 1: 93
Week 2: 93
Week 3: 93
Week 4: 93

Kristina | 344 comments I'm excited for this one. I plan to start it this weekend.

Deedee | 50 comments I checked the book out of the library today. I am also planning to start this weekend.

Oh no! That's terrible. I hope that you will still find some enjoyment of the book.

Deedee | 50 comments Sorry guys -- I started reading this one, put it down, started it again then marked it did-not-finish. I found it too confusing to follow.

Aw man :( I can see how it was confusing, especially earlier in the story. I finished the book earlier this week and I ended up really enjoying it.

Kristin, do you think you will finish the book, despite knowing who the letter writer is?

My favorite part of the book is the past-lives stories. I don't know if I have a favorite to be honest, because I thought they were all strong and had their own merit, but one of the later ones resonated more with me I think because it's a more recent/accessible history. (view spoiler)

Two other books that come to mind in relation to past-lives reincarnation are The Gargoyle and The Memory Painter. I enjoyed both, though I think The Gargoyle my be the stronger book of the two.

Kristina | 344 comments I'm glad that you were able to enjoy the book despite the spoiler.
