Review of “The Five Times I Met Myself” by James L. Rubart


From Goodreads:

What if you met your twenty-three year old self in a dream? What would you say?

Brock Matthews’ once promising life is unraveling. His coffee company. His marriage.

So when he discovers his vivid dreams—where he encounters his younger self—might let him change his past mistakes, he jumps at the chance. The results are astonishing, but also disturbing.

Because getting what Brock wants most in the world will force him to give up the one thing he doesn’t know how to let go of . . . and his greatest fear is it’s already too late.

My Review:

4/5 stars

Going into this book I didn’t know what to expect, I also didn’t know this was a Christian book of sorts. It’s not heavy in religion at all, IMHO, but it’s there and it’s referred to. That said, it was an excellent book. Really easy, quick read, and moving. I’d say it was more than I went in anticipating. It has a great message. It’s not full of action but it’s always moving. And don’t think you’re going to know just how this thing goes. If you’re looking for some sentimental motivation I would recommend this. I don’t read Christian fiction – just not my bag – but I liked this. I teared up a few times. I think a lot of people, whatever your religion, could appreciate this story. If you ever wished you could talk to your younger self I think you should give this a shot.

Enjoy! I’ll be passing this on to someone I care about. 😉
