    What if whenever you went to sleep you were able to see and feel

    What if whenever you went to sleep you were able to see and feel the emotions of those you were visiting, whether it be the past, present of future? Would you like to see the past and find out what a real dodo bird was? Would you like to visit the future and perhaps see how humans are living—if they're living? Josh,one of the main characters, is able to do this, however he has no control over anything he sees or where/what he sees. It just happens once he goes to sleep and through these dreams he progresses from past to future. In case you need a little more information at certain key moments, look to the back of the book and you'll be filled in completely.

    Although the story is well written in an entertaining format with likable characters, I felt EPIPHANY to be geared more toward the thinkers out there. Don't get me wrong, the plot etc it's all there. To me, the main point was the questions strategically posed throughout the story.

    As I was reading EPIPHANY, I found myself thinking of history, the BIBLE, creationism, the two witnesses, what is already was and what was will be again, in addition it incorporates time travel, crystals, the past, the present, and the future, not to mention an interesting take on things occurring in our present society here in the USA and our ability to actively ignore those issues, without realising it.


    It gives the reader things to consider about the connection between morality and the decline of the USA. The professor explaining morality as it relates to history itself is given in a thought provoking manor. We are able to see the different views through both the teacher and Josh, as he considers what his teacher tells him. He doesn't get through it immediately, he takes time to consider things. The reader is given a unique, personal perspective as we view a politician as he takes in the games at the Roman Coliseum. Is it too late for us? Can we still learn from the past as Josh did? How long can we ignore things just hoping for the best before it's too late for us? These are just a few of the ideas this story will have you posing to yourself by the end.
