Three quarters of the way into The Eternal Ones, I decided I needed a break. My plan was to read a different (a.k.a. better) book for a while then return to Miller’s novel at a later point in time. After finishing the “break” book, however, I found myself starting another new book rather than going back to The Eternal Ones. When that second book was over, I started yet another.
A couple of weeks went by. One evening I happened to glance at my nightstand and was surprised to see The Eternal Ones – I’d forgotten all about it. I picked it up, figuring I should probably finish it at last, but then realized I had absolutely no desire to read any more of it. In fact, I had to make an effort to remember what it was even about.
In fairness to the author, part of my dislike for this book could be attributed to general lack of interest in novels about reincarnation. I don’t really buy into the idea of soul mates, either, which didn’t help matters. Other reasons for my unenthusiastic response include annoying characters and an overly sensational plot.
I don’t have much more to say about this book, other than: Skip it.
