Soul Identity - Reader Views Review

ArmchairInterviewsFrom the moment you start reading Batchelder’s “Soul Identity,” you are caught up in suspense, deception and questions regarding one’s soul and what happens to it. Questioning what happens to our souls when we die is a question we have all asked ourselves--where does it go? Do we come back as someone else? Do we all have past lives?

Through the vivid descriptions of the characters and events happening in the attempt by one organization, ‘Soul Identity,’ to track and identify souls over twenty-six-hundred years, the author makes us feel we are right there, questioning our beliefs about what can and will happen to us when we die. The main character, Scott Waverly, isn’t a believer in soul tracking and thinks that this group might be a cult just to get people’s money and give them little in return. Through daring observations, trickery and bribes Waverly tries to find the truth that puts him in imminent danger.

Through his ability to write in a way that capture s the reader’s interest from the beginning, Batchelder also gives readers the opportunity to think about whether tracking could really happen. In addition to one’s religious belief, is there something else that would make a person feel complete in their life?

While “Soul Identity” is about science, religion and personal beliefs, the highlight of the book is about what happens when a corrupt religious group takes over the thoughts of everyday citizens--who is the ultimate winner when one finds out that they are being conned and is it possible for a non-believer to become a believer?
