My rating for The Memorist – 4
I liked “The Reincarnationist” (book review) and “The Memorist” by M. J. Rose (website | Facebook |Twitter) didn’t disappoint either. When I saw that the book starts out quoting the Zohar I immediately knew that the author has done her research.
White “The Memorist” is a bit slower than the previous novel, I thought the story was more interesting, the characters are more fleshed out and Vienna comes alive. Some of the characters from the first novel make an appearance, and even have an important role, however one need not read the first book to enjoy this one (even tough I would recommend it).
Ms. Rose complied a bunch of beliefs about reincarnation from several religions and religious texts and did a great job combining them and explaining some complex theology in simple terms.
On a side note: I loved that Ms. Rose incorporated Beethoven’s Immortal Beloved into this book. From some reason I just got a kick out of it when it “clicked”.
If you follow my blog you know that I enjoy a diverse range of books and am not afraid to tackle difficult and long books. One of the main reasons I enjoy these books is because they introduce me to a concept that is controversial and not part of the mainstream. While I don’t know if I believe in reincarnation (though it sure would be nice) I still find it interesting to read about.
So tell me, do you like to read about controversial topics?
Meers Logan is haunted by nightmares which seem vivid and real. She can smell, see and hear faint music which she can’t put her finger on. When an envelope addressed to the Phoenix Foundation, which is dedicated to recovery of past life memories, Meers recognize the box which she spent years imagining.
Meers is determained to unlock the mystery and travels to Vienna to recover the lost memory Flute linked to the great composer Ludwig van Beethoven.
