I almost quit after the first 50 pages but it only cost me $1.99 for NOOK so I finished it. I think the other reviews were probably written by a man named Gabriel David or a member of his family.

I typically only read novels by well-known authors, but I love reading about immortals so I figured I'd give Gabriel a chance and read the first two chapters. It may sound cliche but once I started reading, I really could not stop! I was captivated by Izzy and his Uncle Jack, and had to see where this novel would go. The story is extremely well-thought out and presented. The underlying spiritual message of the story is sure to touch your heart.

Save the two bucks and avoid this amateurish piece of work. Unless: -- You like the continual pretentious quoting of classic rock lyrics that have nothing whatsoever to do with the story. -- You really really want to hear, in excruciating detail, about the protagonist's deformed testicle and the problems it presents him in going to the bathroom. -- You enjoy egotistical authors breaking character and writing little asides to the reader which, again, have nothing at all to do with development of the story. If so, this may be just to your liking.

I don't like to write negative reviews, but in this case I had to. This was a short read or I probably would not have bothered to finish the book. The good: Overall it had a positive message. The bad: It read like a long advertisement for Starbucks. I felt like the message could have been put across in a few paragraphs. Instead, the author went into unnecessary detail about all of the different drinks that the protagonist and his uncle drank while playing chess. The plot never really developed. By the time it seemed like something genuinely interesting would happen, the book was done. I do not know anything about the author, but I am assuming that this is an early work. He can be humorous at times and sometimes insightful.

The Facebook advertising scheme was dispicable. Although it did trick me into buying a nook copy of this book. So I guess it suceeded. You have fooled me once it won't happen again. To the book; it was readable but I'm glad I didn't purchase the hardcover. His writing style was very juvenile to the point of getting gross in a few places. The story line was good but predictable, I had figured out the old man had not died long before it was made known. It was a great first book. I have been an avid reader and writer for many years so I've been there. Hey you got published, that is an accomplishment these days. Please improve and come back. I blame the advertising squarely on the publisher so don't let those comments stop you.

Using humor, sometimes crude, and a clever plot line, Gabriel David’s The Immortalists forces you to think about how you live. Each day, we mortals have the opportunity to alter the course of history through engaging those around us. The problem is that we do not have the time or resources to monitor how much impact we can have on the world through our impact on individuals. Mr. David’s solution? Immortals. With the benefit of unlimited time, we could truly appreciate just how much power we really have. After reading The Immortalists, you’ll want to engage with every person you come across. After all, you may just end up saving the world… despite the fact that you may not live long enough to know about it.

Gabriel David takes you on a humorous, enticing that explores religion, relationships, and "ripple snippets." It is a compelling novel with many twists and will be hooked from the first chapter when you first begin to learn about Izzy (the protagonist). You will not be able to put this book down! It is a MUST read!!
