Our Lady of Dreams - Entertainment Combined With a Powerful Message Jun 23, 2008
Chanson Duvall's novel, Our Lady of Dreams: A prophecy for the new age is the unique combination of a page turning murder mystery and a powerful message about the future of mankind. As the plot moves through a murder and ensuing trial, the book simultaneously brings the reader up to speed on the very important choices that each person must make to determine the future of the world. I found the book to be both entertaining and enlightening.
Experience the Presence Jun 22, 2008
I had just finishd reading Eckhart Tolle's "A New Earth" when someone suggeted I red "Our Lady of Dreams". At first I was skeptical that a novel could give me any glimpse into the dimensions of consciousness and 'Presence' that Tolle alludes to in this book. "Our Lady of Dreams" drew me in sloly and even as I was engrossed in the story line, a peacefulness fell upon me that I had never experienced before and it was there immediately whenever I picked up the book. It was as though the writer was reaching out and blessing me with a view into higher states of consciousness where mind meets 'otherness'. Most of the main characters are day to day ordinary people who have stumbled upon the divine realms that many great spiritual teachers of all traditions have spoken about. I felt I was present with Thomas as he experienced the opening of each chakra and as he ascended into the divine light. At the same time, I was still in the 'ordinary' world of Kathernie as she experienced her small insighful 'openings' and moments of 'no-thing-ness'. Now I am curious if the author's predictions will come true for humanity. Even with its few technical flaws, it's a beautiful piece of mystical work which I believe one day will become a classic in mystical literature. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants insight into the world Tolle and others are talking aobut in this current world surge for spiritual kowledge and awakening.
Interesting Plot Jun 17, 2008
The plot is interesting, but there are far too many errors throughout the entire book. I could have really enjoyed this book had it been properly edited and proofread. As it is I force myself to go on in spite of the errors in grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc. (style). This is a framework story (a story within a story), but the inner story is often so unnecessarily detailed that I sometimes find myself needing to force my memory of the main plot. Much of the inner story could have been condensed, perhaps in summary form.
Intelligent thriller! May 13, 2008
"Our Lady of Dreams" is a well-written mystery that cleverly weaves two story lines, told from different points of view. Duvall definitely challenges his readers to think and feel and his commitment to detail is outstanding. The story line twist at the end is a great way to tie the stories together and will keep you thinking long after the final page! Highly recommended for both the open-minded thinker and those willing to explore their spirituality.
