This was a very good book. William Campbell has a great writing style that I really enjoyed, it kept the story moving along and kept the mind imagining these places and characters that I really liked. The scope of the story is amazing considering it's only the first book, but I loved the ambition of it this story could end up going anywhere and I can not wait to find out what happens in the second book Apotheosis.

Reminded me of the clasic science fiction of the 30's and 40's

Just finished the book before writing this review. It was a very good book the characters have great depth. I found it creative that throughout the book he has to obtain his memory. It could very well become a video game of some sort. When the main character(i wont spoil his name for those who have yet to read it) thinks or says somthing its so deep. You can really grab some good quotes and amazing life lessons from this book. Overall thought...simply amazing.

Where to begin? The first thing that most people see is the cover, and despite the popular adage it is normally a large part of the decision to buy a book. For a Science Fiction book, this cover has it all: A spaceship, A rather attractive young lady pointing a laser-gun type weapon and plenty of mysterious figures over a metropolis backdrop. Good Stuff. This cover however, meaant that it took me a few pages to realise that the main character was male. Also, I assume that the image refers to a scene towards the end of the book, but it's considerably different to what I read there. So brilliant but misleading cover.Now we can look inside the book. The first two chapters are confusing and quite hard to get through. For me, it took some work. Things change rapidly, confusingly, and since the main character knows nothing, neither do we. I nearly put the book down out of disinterest. My obligation to review the book however, meant that I had to continue.Fortunately, the Book gets a lot better very quickly. As soon as the main character is rescued it get's more interesting (and funnier). The character's friends have a sort of drunken humour, which can creat an interesting mind effect when reading sober. As for Adam, the protagonist, his observations of the world around him can be highly amusing.The author is rather good at writing sexual tension, but when emotion starts to be an issue he loses it slightly. This could be because we don't understand the feelings, Adam's returning memory makes feelings apparently come from nowhere, for a character we don't meet until the very end.In addition, there seems to be no main objective to the plot, which weakens it somewhat, although the ending is a direct suggestion of a sequel (which does exist). I've read other reviews saying that the author tackles the subject of reincarnation well, but I disagree. Not that his ideas on the matter are well written, but that it is truly reincarnation. It's a different sort of process. I would be interested to see where the author takes it next, but for me the sequel is not a priority read.In all, the book is entertaining and not entirely frivolous, but if you are looking for a strong plot and realistic human characters, you'll need to look elsewhere.

Poorly written and not very interesting

There are a few new ideas here, but I mostly came away with the feeling of 'been there, done that.'

Awakening is the first book in William Campbell's Dead Forever series. The book is written in first-person, present tense, which may take some readers a bit of adjustment. William Campbell, has an easy to follow writing style. Each character in Awakening has a unique personality and Campbell does a great job of bringing them to life, his words flow well. William Campbell is very descriptive in his telling of Awakening, but not so much as to make it boring. There were times when Awakening would take on a sort of "Matrix" type feel, but for me it fit just perfect. I would recommend Awakening-Dead Forever #1 to adults and YA of a more mature level due to some of the sexually themed areas. of the book. I apploud William Campbell for Awakening-Dead Forever #1. I look forward to reading Apotheosis-Dead Forever #2.

Yet another author who inists on writing in the present tense. The author spends way too long just getting the main character awake. It should not take 10 pages to awaken.
