The premise of reincarnation was interesting and unique The author seems extremely knowledgeable about viruses and history The plot is convoluted and complex, and the pacing is leisurely In the last quarter of the book I did care about what happened to the characters The cover is good.The not so good, for me It took a long time for me to like the main character Due to the distant, formal, passively worded narrative I never really cared about Jessica or some of the other characters My copy was so riddled with mistakes that if I weren t compelled to review it for Goodreads I wouldn t have finished reading it I m not extremely picky Many of these goofs could have been fixed with a simple run through Microsoft Word s grammar checker or simply having an honest test reader There was missing punctuation, incorrect words site for sight, you re for your , switched tenses from past to present and back, an info dump where a man told a story inside a flashback and spoke for 7 unbroken pages, and a scene in the wrong spot one paragraph Roger and the shrink he s known a week are getting hotdogs in the park, the next he s kissing her at her doorstep, the next pragraph they re back in the park eating the hotdogs My overall opinion is tread lightly If you re lucky enough to get an edited copy then it ll be a good read Or if you don t care about the technical side of writing at all and just want story, go for it For me, if I had paid for the copy I got in this poorly edited form, I d have been angry What a weird and very interesting story At first I wasn t totally into it and sadly I just didn t like Roger He has a great life, with a great wife and kids, loves everything about his life and is turning 40 I wanted him to get run over by a car I mean seriously, great I m glad you re happy but I don t want to read about all that damn happiness And then the twist He wakes in the hospital and is trying to figure out what happened when WHAM He looks at himself and realizes he s now a white g What a weird and very interesting story At first I wasn t totally into it and sadly I just didn t like Roger He has a great life, with a great wife and kids, loves everything about his

hospital and is trying to figure out what happened when WHAM He looks at himself and realizes he s now a white guy And not a 40 year old either but a 60 year old white guy what the hell Needless to say I was muchinterested in the story at this point It s kind of like a psychological thriller He s trying to figure out what the hell is going on while everyone thinks he s nuts.The downside is the thriller portion didn t get totally answered The story was left at a place where you have to kind of answer your own questions And it s almost as if everything he went through was for naught, which drives me crazy But there are some interchanging plot lines that run through this and I think those plot lines are what really kept me wanting to knowbut the ending just left me a little weird I loved it but I also hated it I want to knowI want Roger to knowThe writing was definitely intriguing and although the plot left a little to be desired I found myself wanting to read because it was so interesting The plot, the characters were engaging, but the writing itself was phenomenal.Into sci fi or thrillers You ll enjoy the twists this one has The story in Life is But a Dream is phenomenal The idea of reincarnation is fascinating and to incorporate it into a thriller was exciting The story was spiritual, but with mystery and intrigue It was very reminiscent of 12 Monkeys actually My main issue with the book is this The story is written in narration, meaning that you are able to witness the thoughts, feelings and actions of all the characters, but you don t feel connected to them

deep male voice narrating the entire thing Like I said, the story was great, but the execution was not great I thoroughly enjoyed this book I bought it on impulse I don t usually read books,

I haven t seen put together before.The differences between Roger and Sydney were fairly interesting,noticeable as the time passed Roger s confusion over things in the future was endearing and easy to empathise with.I liked the characters and I liked Roger s relationships with the people in the future They grew on me and I really liked them, even Cyrus, who I didn t especially like at first.I did notice quite a few errors in the book not misspellings as such, but the wrong word used Site instead of sight was one of those There were also a few occasions where something was stated that wasn t known by the POV character, which was kind of confusing.I didn t think there was much mystery in the book, I have to say Everything was revealed in a block of speech towards the end The book did succeed in keeping me reading, though, and I cared about what happened to the characters.I d probably be interested in reading another book by the same author, depending on the genre It was definitely an interesting read with well written characters that were easy to identify with This is a terrific book I got it on a Friday and was lost in it for the entire weekend The plot grabs you from the first chapter David Earle really makes you a part of the story and you ll find yourself feeling all the emotions of his characters As I began reading I thought, This is too good too early, no way can it wrap things up well enough to satisfy me I was wrong The writing is exquisite and the author slam dunks the ending You ll want to read this bookthan once I couldn t put this book down it was fast paced and fascinating A 40 year old African American man celebrates his birthday and wakes up the next day as a white professor some 100 years on I won t say anyin case I spoil the story but it s
