My Thoughts:


Hello everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Today is Tuesday, meaning it’s time to cover an awesome book. What do I have for you today? I got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Truth be told I got it somewhere in October or November 2014 and due to my studies couldn’t review it. But as promised my spring break equaled to me reading, so apologies to everyone who has been waiting for me to review this book. I’m ready to share y thoughts right now.

The subtitle: “inspirational Novel” suits this book very well. When I first started reading it, no, way before I started reading it, I was expecting something absolutely different, but whatever I got was quite astonishing and a really great new approach to our memories and self-development. David Allen constructed an absolutely realistic world with characters as if from life and not just fictional ones. The very concept of Pool of echoes was very interesting, though I didn’t really get how it actually allowed people to visit their memories and change stuff. I thought that it was cheating. Instead of overcoming his difficulties now, Jordan went to the past and gave hope to his old selves so that he could be reborn. I believe it’s cheating, but to come up with such idea is also great.

I am still confused with some things mainly with Nathan coming in all Jordan’s memories to kill him. Okay, I got that he was a demon, but then again if he was a demon it must have been Jordan’s subconscious that made him, so why couldn’t he not just think about him. But, well how he overcame him was also great. The paradox theory was also well though of. And it made quite a lot of sense. Another thing which was really confusing was why he had to kill himself – Jay 66, I mean he killed his future-self, which to me made absolutely no sense, but then again I might have missed something important when I wanted to understand the concept behind the voices.

Probably I just confused you even more, but what I would like to tell you is that this book is very easy to read. It does confuse you in the beginning, but you’ll find logical explanation to everything. Are you ready to dive into pool of echoes and to be reborn as a new and better person? Well, grab your copy now! I believe you will enjoy it a lot.

For my reader exclusively, I’ll be contacting David Allen and I would ask him to give me an interview regarding this book so I guess either to the end of April or beginning of May I might have an interview to share with you, if you would like to ask any questions just comment them below and I’ll add them on the list. Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos here, on Katie’s Corner. Happy reading!

XOXO
