3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first
The Tenth Insight is a....well....decent sequel to The Celestine Prophecy. Though it has more than its share of fluff, like the first book, it has a bit more plot. I enjoyed the concepts presented regarding the Afterlife, and soul groups, and a new global awareness. The characters, this time, were active participants in the story, as opposed to hapless protagonists passed...

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first, Sept. 21 2000
The Tenth Insight is a....well....decent sequel to The Celestine Prophecy. Though it has more than its share of fluff, like the first book, it has a bit more plot. I enjoyed the concepts presented regarding the Afterlife, and soul groups, and a new global awareness. The characters, this time, were active participants in the story, as opposed to hapless protagonists passed hand-to-hand through a learning process. It could still have been written better, in my opinion. However, if you are at this page, interested in perhaps picking up a copy, you probably enjoyed the Celestine Prophecy. If this is the case, you most likely will not be disappointed be the Tenth Insight. Go for it - even though it's a little lacking, it's a feel-good kind of book:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Definite Read, April 6 1999
By A Customer
This rounds out the first nine insights. It does sound somewhat fanciful to non-openminded people, but does hold the truth within it. It was meant to be fictional and at the same time was able to give a message of utmost importance - respect and non-judgement. Obviously, some people didn't get that message and wished to judge. If you don't like something, that is okay, but this is a book that encourages positive behavior. I don't care what religion one follows, the message is a good one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Here's a fun game for the folks who liked this book:, Feb. 2 1999

Look through the entire book and see if you can find a metaphor. I only read the first 23 pages, but I figured that if I didn't see one by then, the metaphor would be as hard to find as a sober college student at the homecoming tailgate party. That a novel so devoid of LITERARY INSIGHT can live on the bestseller rack for months should tell us how much we missed in high school English class. -J. A. Kemp, Jr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Redfield's books are the connections between West&East., Jan. 5 1999
By A Customer
Mr. Redfield's books can serve as a bridge to connect the ancient eastern cultivation culture and nowadays earthly human insights. They are full of perceptives,wisdom and is an indication of humandkind's evolution by a grand new perspect of the meaning of earthly life as well as a revelation of the potentiality of humankind's spirituality/consciousness.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ten is One To Many, Jan. 3 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Tenth Insight: Holding the Vision (Paperback)
I'm not the type who goes for all the spirtual stuff, but even dismissing that I found Redfield's first book to be possessing an interesting plot. However, "The Tenth Insight" struck me as having almost no plot development at all, and instead, Redfield focused almost entirely on the spirtual aspect and seemed to forget that a novel has to have some sort of a story line as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars The landslide is over - but a few rocks are still rolling., July 6 1998
By A Customer
The TENTH insight!? Don't make the mistake of writing this book off JUST because it comes on the coat-tails of it's highly successful precursor. Admittedly it doesn't have the pathos of Joseph Heller's "Catch 22" or the passion and insight of "Jesus of Nazareth and the Missing Years" by Richard Patton. What it does have, is its finger on the pulse of the present consciousness that asks "What more is there? This can't be all there is"? Celestine prophecy has already become a prisoner of its own success, but for good reason. It is a finger that points at some profound truths. For people that haven't had access or interest in 'Newage' belief systems, this book is a great Reader's Digest. It, more perhaps than any other book before it, has made 'spiritual' an openly used word and concept. If it were only for this, it would be worth reading. The naivety of the writing is what makes it so accessible to the general public and therefore a great opener for people who might otherwise dismiss the word 'spiritual' from their daily language. Not as good as it's parent book but still interesting reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sequel Jinx, Nov. 11 1997
By A Customer
I read The Celestine Prophesy in three hours. I read The Tenth Insight in three months. It took me longer to open the book once I had closed it than it was to read War and Peace. I appreciated many of the simple ways the author, in Celestine, tried to explain the ancient beliefs of the Christians, Hindus, Zen Masters and Buddhists through the now popular phrase "New Age". I even appreciated the "action", "suspense" and ending of Celestine. But when it came to revealing the tenth insight in The Tenth Insight, running out of gas is an understatement. The discussion on "A-life-unexamined-is-not-worth- living-cum-karma-cum-past-life-regression" is too contrived. Not at all "coincidental" as in Celestine. Wil's character comes in and out to intervene like a guardian angel, but guardian angel he's not. He's more like a distant observer who helps out the protagonist so that the story may continue without any hitches...classic deux ex machina. The book tried too hard to describe heaven and hell that it lost the path to the spiritual road it promised in Celestine. This is one of the worst sequels I've read.
