Reincarnation Blues is a book right up my alley.
Milo has lived almost ten thousand lives, the maximum a soul can return until it reaches perfection. If the soul hasn’t reached perfection in ten thousand tries then they are blown into oblivion.
In between lives that Milo lives we see him in a kind of afterlife that exists as a mirror of incarnated life. Three other characters play a role in Milo’s life between lives.
Suzie, who is his “Death” that comes for him each time his passes. And two women who are his guides. He calls them Grandmother and Nana.
Each life, Milo lives (We, the readers are treated to his last five) could be an individual story but the setup works well. Several of the life stories are really fleshed out and I liked reading them. There are some definite undertones from Susan Baker’s The Incarnations in the way both books take on the different lives the protagonists live. Each life becomes a story unto itself.
The difference being that The Incarnations is much darker and violent throughout. That didn’t keep me compelled from reading however. Both books are worth reading.
You don’t necessarily have to believe reincarnation is a reality to enjoy Reincarnation Blues or for that matter Susan Baker’s book. There are aspects to Reincarnation Blues that resonate with me and there are some things that don’t. But it didn’t stand in my way from enjoying the book.
Pick up either book and leaf through the first chapters of both. You may find yourself intrigued. I did.
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying. For there truly is no end.
