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.
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!
If you've seen the film- Inception which includes dreams within dreams within dreams, then you might appreciate that there are stories within stories, within stories, that Life is often times stranger and more miraculous than anything that fiction writers can come up with. This book is in some ways a miracle, a portal into dreams, visions, possibilities, as well as the nightmares that people do not want to look at or experience, our greatest fears. I don't want to give away the plot, but I will say that Bill Douglas is a real person, a heroic guy, who walked into my life many years ago, along with his wife, to perform some miraculous work, vitally needed at the time, and I have the deepest respect for him. He is a truth seeker and has discovered some truths which may rock the foundations of governments and corporations, but he has also discovered some cures for what ails individuals, society, humanity, and has offered his vision, dream, insights, which could very well have been channeled from higher sources, to those of us struggling in this physical world with the psyops and propaganda that has mesmerized and decapacitated so many people for so long. The novel is an antidote, drug free, to engage critical minds, imagination, your own inner voice, to give greater attention to your own belief system, your own consciousness, your own innate power. We are not helpless; we can do miraculous things; we have a wealth of experience, insights to draw from.
Part truth, part fiction, it is a story that engages, edifies, inspires and a gift to those who find, make, take the time to read it. It is worth every moment, no matter how demanding your life may be. In fact the more demanding your life is, the more you are likely to gain insight, inspiration, and inner peace from reading it.
