Book Description

Aug. 4 2010
A woman finds herself at the center of a global human awakening unleashing waves of exhilaration, limitless hope, and terrifying danger that will batter her and our world as the very foundation of all we know shudders and shifts into a new emerging reality. We all feel it . . . we all doubt it . . . we all hope for it!

Deepak Chopra called '2012 The Awakening' "a Gift," famed actor, Holmes Osborne said it has "the suspense of a Da Vinci Code, the spiritual awareness of `The Secret,' and the fearsome aspect of Orwell's `1984.'"

Ravi Shyamalan is about to give her most auspicious career speech after receiving the Nobel Prize in Economics. A vibration rattles her and she finds herself unable to deliver her prepared address, but is driven to speak from the heart about a need for humanity to change directions and see itself in a new role on planet earth.

Her sister/manager, Rachel, is terrified as her sister goes so far off script from the talk they'd prepared together. Ravi is embarrassed, petrified, and filled with self doubt as she becomes a voice for a shift in humanity's consciousness. What she does not yet know is that all of humanity is being challenged to redefine themselves at this critical time in history, and that it is rattling some very powerful forces who want nothing more than a very lucrative status quo to remain as is.

Join Ravi on her heart gripping exhilarating journey into a world of grave danger and infinite possibility, navigating the waters of a global human awakening.

This shift in consciousness will shake the foundations of powers that have ruled the world for eons. The heroes' struggle to envision a new way of being will determine their survival. Can they? Can we?

5.0 out of 5 stars 2012 The Awakening Aug. 23 2010
Format:Paperback
Wow..!! what a great read. I don't normally read a book so fast, but it was hard to put this one down. A little of "Angles & Demons" & "The Borne Conspiracy" combined, with lots of factual notes included. It's a real Eye Opener, but giving use hope for a brighter future, if we can follow the story line.
As a Tai Chi & Qigong Instructor I can relate to this great story. I can't wait for the next book from this author - Bill Douglas.2012 the Awakening

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read Sept. 5 2010
Format:Paperback
This is the most exciting book I have ever read. The story draws you in and it's extremely difficult to put the book down, like The Da Vinci Code on steroids. Bill addresses issues that are crucial to our time, like the future of the planet. If you want an engrossing, stellar read with deep insights, this is the book for you. If you know people who read that you really care about, this is the book for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars action/adventure inspiration for the soul! Aug. 11 2010
By The Pastor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this novel as fast-paced as it is thought-provoking, as entertaining as it is inspirational. The way the characters are portrayed in the story really draw you in, I came to relate intensely to each of them in different ways. It was not only a great story from start to finish, it also left me reflecting on some of the challenges which face the planet today. It is a timely and timeless message all at the same time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, thought-provoking Nov. 4 2010
By B. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book got four stars, rather than five, from me, as an acknowledgement that, from a writing point of view, there are some rough spots in it. But if you can accept those, as I did, you're in for a thought-provoking ride, that calls into question some of western society's dearly-held beliefs. Some of these I have been questioning for 20 years, now, but not as skillfully as Bill has presented it here.

The characters are, from a technical standpoint, the outstanding feature of the writing. They are real enough to almost jump off the page, shake your hand, and engage you in conversation. This makes the plot so much more real, as it is all about what it is to be human. The richness of the characterization make this exploration so real and persuasive. I know that Bill was really trying to, at least in part, get these questions asked in a way that made us believe that the questions are important, and I believe he did that in spades.

Finally, it's a romping-good story. You care about the characters, you want to see "what happens next," and that's what makes a page-turner. So enjoy, and take as much of the richer meat as you feel inclined to.

I have just recently finished reading "2012 The Awakening" by Bill Douglas.
It is a wonderful book! The plot is exciting, & the storyline holds your interest, very well. I found the book hard to put down. It is especialy interesting to me, because I practice tai chi, & qigong, but the books message, & the suspenseful plot, will appeal to all readers. It is exciting, just as a good read, but also is an uplifting novel, meant to encourage all of us to save our planet. I highly recommend it, to all readers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Diane Gold's Review Aug. 6 2010
By Diane Gold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What a refreshing combination of suspense and sense, and in my favorite genre, political drama. I knew it was one of the good ones when I was on the edge of my seat throughout the read.

Douglas makes a good argument for how changing ourselves can change the world, without preaching or catering to any one niche of people. This book is appealing to all kinds of thinkers, any ethnicity or political persuasion. His characters use cunning, ethics, creativity and commitment to escape the villains in pursuit of rubbing out the leader of a new idea. Douglas shows how easily hesitation or doubt can alter the face of history for generations. His original, electrifying plot takes us in and out of rather intricate mazes of human circumstance, while riveting our attention to what will happen when the characters turn the corner.

His main character, Ravi, a Nobel Prize winner in Economics, speaking at one of New York City's prestigious speaking clubs, changes the subject of her speech from Economics to changing ourselves. She becomes an instant icon for the people. The governmental organization that monitors national security considers her a threat and goes after her. The novel takes us on a dramatic journey of good versus evil, selfish versus selfless actions, all the while keeping the reader delighted.

A great read with lasting meaning, I recommend that you get this book and read it for a super adventure in 2012.
