This was a super quick read a few hours if that. Thank you to NetGallery for a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I found this an interesting approach to love and relationships, but unbalanced for the average reader. Let’s get into the review.
Find your soulmate by following universal laws. This book will fundamentally change the way you attract, start, and maintain a lasting relationship. Compare the patterns in your life with broad scientific concepts and historical events, and you could be connecting with your ideal partner sooner than you think. When you follow the creed of the cosmos—and this may be contrary to what you might have done up to this point in dating—you’ll have a chance to find your soulmate.
Kim’s Review 3.5 Interesting Stars
Well, after browsing the non fiction section the cover and title caught my eye for sure. The blurb also pulled me in, as well as the advance praise for the book. With my own interest in universal laws and esoteric subjects, I was so intrigued at how this could be connected to relationships, love and even the concept of ‘soul mates’.
Here’s what I loved
- The logic.
- The alternative way of looking at relationships, love and connecting with others.
- The idea of a ‘practical’ informative book, using science.
- This book is for everyone no matter your relationships status.
I enjoyed the scientific aspect of this book to start with as I read, as it touches on astronomy, how the universe, planets and solar system work. Areas I naturally enjoy this made it very easy for me to follow the direction of the book. However, while it helped hold my interest personally, it also hindered the book’s overall purpose and main direction – to help others and inspire them when it comes to love and relationships, regardless of being married, single or looking for love. I felt the heavy delivery of science took the book in a different direction, almost a pure academic direction. Given the genre, I feel more balance between science and ‘self-help’ ‘inspiration’ is needed.
I would imagine an average reader who does not have GREAT interest or even knowledge in astronomy, astrology or the science of the universe and its function might become turned off quickly. In addition even if you love these things like me, this probably is not what you may expect, or even hope to read mostly about, based on the book’s blurb and gene. Too much science took away the beauty of ‘self help’ and ‘inspiration’ when it comes to the subject matter of relationships, love and soulmates. This was the main downfall for me as a reader. Too much science, less practical every day language and content.
Overall, it is a very interesting read ( if you like science), and the concept is intriguing, but the approach to delivering the message could be better balanced, for general readers and just generally. Sadly, the book does need a bit more formatting and editing for readability too. But if you love the subject matter of the universe and it’s function, how it impacts on life here on earth this could be for you. Note that the ‘ inspiration’ or practical ‘self help’ may not be fully gained, due to the balance of the content. 3.5 stars from me. More balance could have easily increased my enjoyment and overall star rating!
