    The three words that will change your life

    I can, in all honesty, say that this is one of the best books I have ever read. This was my first time with a Quinn novel, and although I can't speak to his other work, this one will stop you dead in your tracks. He is able to successfully craft an alternate reality and history without confusing the reader, while at the same time challenging you to question everything that you thought to be true -- about history, about our existence, about humankind in general. It makes you wonder if this work of fiction is really fiction after all. The book's ending, as well as the revelation of the "correct" three words on the blackboard, moved me to tears. After this one, you'll definitely look at the human race in general through different eyes.

    Suspensful, meaningful, well-written, great book!

    I was fortunate enough to see Quinn on the book tour, and even though I hadn't read the book yet, I knew I was in for something good. And i was right...I read the whole book in a day, and having read everything else by Quinn, this one goes in another direction than the Ishmael trilogy and Beyond Civlization. The clear and consise writing made this a quick but throughourly(sp?) enjoyable read, and the plot twist in the middle almost made me jump! The underlying message may be lost on those not familiar with his works, so if you read this first, be sure to check out the Ishmael trilogy(Ishmael, Story of B, and My Ishmael) as well as Beyond Civlization. Your outlook on the world will never be the same. Message aside, it's still an enjoyable and suspensful read. Some parts, especialy near the end require ALOT of suspension of belief on behalf of the reader, but other than that I recommend this book to...well, everyone!

    Makes you wonder...

    This new offering from Daniel Quinn (author of Ishmael) is a very intriguing exploration of how a culture's perspective on history can drive people. It is the story of a young man who is obsessed with reincarnation, finally finds the real thing, and how it blows to pieces the ideas upon which his whole world is founded. There are several chilling points in the book and at the end we see a small minority who is in a very similar position as those of us who have been changed by Quinn's previous books.
