Jim's Life, the sequel to The Little Universe by Jason Matthews, addresses some deep subjects: the essence of a person, the search to understand our place and purpose in the cosmos, eternal life, past lives and changed lives, the "interconnectedness" between all life forms and the material/spiritual universe we live in, transcendence, love, the power of healing, and light. In addition, but somewhat more on the negative side: selfishness, egoism, separation, lust for power and control, and close mindedness-along with many of the other human traits that those particular attributes denote. The story ties in well with the first book, yet is not wholly dependent upon it-which is good. Readers who turn its pages will find it a good story unto itself, with only a few questions throughout whose answers can only be found in the first book. Reading Jim's Life is largely reminiscent of Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land, which is one of my all time favorite Sci-fi pieces. Jim's life drew me in simply because I absolutely love the subject matter. Anything that speaks of the "Bigger Picture," or the evolution and transcendence of humanity (and its individuals) onward toward our higher selves, or our loftier potentials, has my vote. Especially if it's rendered objectively, which this is, I was glad to find out. The story itself has many layers, rich with conflict and resolution. There are about the right number of characters and their developing stories set the stage and aid in the emergence of the various themes. I can only think of one or two questions throughout the rendering that were left unanswered, but I think that is the case because many esoteric subjects, by their very nature, don't offer an immediate answer. I expect to wake up one night and go.Oh, yeah.that's why! The author is obviously well versed in the subject matter used within the story: science, and the metaphysical. The continuity of the story was good. There were some extended, fairly elaborate descriptions of various new age terms and methodologies that I have only a layman's understanding of, and my mind seemed to want to wander at times. But, that is the way I always get when reading a work like this. I love philosophy (as well as incorporate it into my own books), but like a lot of people, my mind tires of contemplation at given points. Yet, that's why I like stories like this in the first place: they make me think, think about becoming a better person-a better soul-creating a better world; but, as everyone knows, that was never promised to be an easy journey anyway, for any of us. I rated Jim's Life a little lower than Jason Matthew's, The Little Universe, simply because I liked the first book better. I suppose I related to the characters a little more. But, overall, it was a great book and I was, for the most part, absorbed when reading it and in a continuous state of anticipation and wonderment as to what was going to happen to this unique main character, Jim.
