    This is a must read!!!

    I'am totally confused as to why these books are so cheap! I couldn't put this book down and days later I find myself still thinking about the characters. This is a clean, touching love story that even younger teens can read and will definately stay interested in.

    A Must Read

    Lynette Ferreira has a refreshing writing style. Usually I am able to go from one book to another without any transitional problems, because all authors these days seem to write according to a pre-described template. By the third page of Recycled Souls, I was into this author's writing style, and it flowed fluidly and without effort. While reading this book, it felt as if Elizabeth was sitting in front of me, telling it to me - as if she was telling me a story, speaking directly to me.
    Imagine being seventeen and having a crush on the most handsome boy in school since you can remember. Then when he eventually notices you, actually says hello to you by saying your name aloud, your stepfather decide to move his family to another country - Ireland. Elizabeth is devastated and understandably upset. After living in the same house all her life, she has to now collect herself and move with her family.
    Elizabeth's dad died when she was four years old, and her mom did not know where her dad was until there was a knock at the door, informing them that he had passed away. This made her mother over-protective to the point of smothering. Elizabeth, only being four, did not want her mom to be sad, so she pretended to be happy, and in the process, she could make her mom smile, a trait she kept through life.
    Elizabeth meets Jared, and it feels as if she has known him for all of her life and I fell in love with him instantaneously.
    Although, I do admit, just as Joshua grew on Elizabeth, so he grew on me.
    I also liked the way Elizabeth got along with her stepdad; usually stepfathers are portrayed as awful additions, but not in this case.
    Granted, there are a few formatting errors and grammatical errors, but which book printed these days, even those published by the so-called big publishing houses, does not have any. The story of Elizabeth is however strong enough to carry you through this.
    The trials and tribulations of love, a break-up, an accident, a past-life experience, learning that there are many different kinds of love; make this story something I could relate to.
    Recycled Souls made me rejoice in love, it made me feel sadness rise from the pit of my stomach. It made me optimistic that no matter what happens in my life, it is merely a stepping-stone to the place where I need to be.
    Usually as I finish one book, I reach towards the next, but after reading Recycled Souls, Elizabeth and Jared kept echoing in my mind.

    This book does not even deserve one star. The plot line started with an interesting idea, but it just went downhill from there. The theme of "recycled souls" doesn't even fit into the book. It was a badly written love story, with a side story of a few characters from centuries ago. The main character is extremely hard to relate to, childish and frankly, just annoying. Her actions in the book make no sense, and I often found myself thinking MAKE UP YOUR MIND! For example **SPOILER** She gets in a car accident with a certain character, and wakes up from a coma seven months later. She can't feel her legs. Within the first five minutes, without even talking to a doctor, she tells the other character to get out of her life, leave, and never come back. So he does. Then, shocker, after she regains the ability to walk within a few months, she is mad and upset that the character left, BUT SHE TOLD HIM TO LEAVE, and then later when she has a chance to get back together with him, she's like, he needs to earn my trust back, after leaving me. All other plot line issues aside, the writing was terrible. There were constant contradictions, many repetitive words, simple sentence structure and poor word choice. Don't waste your time or money.
