Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Soul Identity by Dennis Batchelder

 A computer consultant becomes involved with a cult promoting immortality but is it?

Scott Waverly is a security consultant with a focus on computers.   He is asked to help Soul Identity to plug security holes.   Scott’s assumptions regarding the soul and Soul Identity change as he becomes embroiled in an investigation that is beyond his norm.  

Having been and possibly still am a computer geek, I enjoyed the Scott Waverly character.  His skeptical nature was very familiar.   The plot of the book was both entertaining and thought provoking.

The emotions and psychology of the villain were reasonable and understandable within the parameters of the book’s plot.   It isn’t a book that will keep you up nights to finish but it is one that you will enjoy reading.

I recommend it.

BTW I read it on my Droid X using the free Kindle ap.  I find having a book with me wherever I go has significantly reduced my frustration levels when I am kept waiting in Dr. offices and other places that have little regard for the value of the “customer’s” time.
