The Everlasting Viral Book While utterly failing as a novel about reincarnation, this book unintentionally succeeds as a study of the ways in which religion can unhinge to the human mind.Guilt, especially religious guilt of a sexual nature and not reincarnation, is the true theme of this book. Not surprisingly, the protagonist's latest incarnation is as a Roman Catholic priest,In his religious paranoia, he not only self-mutilates by hacking off his own sinful organ, but also kills the female object of his lust. Blessed with his priestly knowledge, he's at last able to recognize that she hasn't really been his love, many times reincarnated, but only a vile temptress, intent for centuries upon bringing about his destruction.This ridiculously annoying example of religious hysteria and the wages of "original sin" could be viewed as either laughable or extremely offensive. I found it to be the latter. . None. Good Kindle The Everlasting I thought this was rather boring. Not at all what I would think reincarnation would be like.
