A fascinating novel: The Five Times I Met Myself by James L. Rubart

The Five Times I Met Myself PK

about the book...

What if you met your twenty-three-year-old self in a dream? What would you say?
Brock Matthews’ once promising life is unraveling. His coffee company. His marriage.
So when he discovers his vivid dreams—where he encounters his younger self—might let him change his past mistakes, he jumps at the chance. The results are astonishing, but also disturbing.
Because getting what Brock wants most in the world will force him to give up the one thing he doesn’t know how to let go . . . and his greatest fear is that it’s already too late.

my review...

James L. Rubart continues to blow my mind with the intriguing premises that characterize his books, and "The Five Times I Met Myself" is no different. I started the book only meaning to read a couple of chapters before carrying on with my day, but then found myself unable to put it down, such that I had to read it in snatches while trying to carry out the normal parts of life I just wanted to ignore so I could keep reading! The result is that I finished the story all in one day, having been captivated by the thought of being able to somehow change my life through my dreams. The amazing part is that over the course of the story I went from longing to try lucid dreaming myself, to then shuddering at the thought of what the true outcome would actually be in my life if I did so, back to wishing that there really were such a thing! As I watched Brock encounter the dark corners of his soul, I found myself squirming uncomfortably as I considered whether I too may struggle with tendencies towards selfishness and pride and putting myself before all others. From beginning to end, the writing is fantastic, and I have no doubt that Rubart's loyal fans are going to love this story, while those who haven't yet read a Rubart novel will find themselves unable to resist diving into this book!

"The Five Times I Met Myself" is a book that will not only fascinate you with its interesting plot and wonderful characterization, but will also challenge you spiritually to consider where you are at with your walk with God and how you impact the people in your own life. The story is a powerful portrayal of how God can redeem our rotten choices, and bring good out of the bad. Ultimately, that is a message of hope that we all need to hear! I highly recommend this book and award it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
