    Impressive debut

    ★★★½ We've all heard the term "old souls", the youthful who are wise beyond their years. The ones who seem to have been through life's journey a time or two already. Have they? The Forgetting Time is Sharon Guskin's debut novel and she was inspired to write it while working as a hospice volunteer which allowed for several discussions about what happens after death. Thomas Shroder's nonfiction book: Old Souls: Compelling Evidence From Children Who Remember Past Lives came into the equation which sparked that many more questions and discussions. Ms. Guskin's personal interest lead to the creation of her debut novel: The Forgetting Time. The Forgetting Time is a fictional story about a young boy Noah who experiences episodes of trauma, confusion, and homesickness over a life that is not his. Is he mentally ill? What other explanation is there? The mother is desperate for a different answer. An out-of-the-box researcher is desperate for one more case study. Fate intervenes and the combination of mild suspense, family drama, and mystery begins. At its core, The Forgetting Time is a beautiful and thought-provoking book. There is a lot going on here though including multiple storylines which unfortunately made for a choppy reading experience in my opinion. BUT, this topic in and of itself is like climbing Mt. Everest for a first-time author and the outcome is to be commended. The Forgetting Time engaged me pretty much instantly and kept me invested in an idea that many shrug at and consider more paranormal than anything. Ms. Guskin allowed this idea to be plausible and entertaining at the same time. Throughout this book, she incorporated nonfiction narratives that mirror Noah's concerns to keep her readers asking questions... Could reincarnation be real? If it is real, what does it mean? How does it change how we live our lives? The Forgetting Time is an excellent debut that I am still heavily thinking about three days later. I would recommend it. My favorite quote: "You Only Live Once. That's what people said, as if life really mattered because it happened only one time. But what if it was the other way around? What if what you did mattered MORE because life happened again and again, consequences unfolding across centuries and continents? What if you had chances upon chances to love the people you loved, to fix what you screwed up, to get it right?"

    An Unforgettable Experience

    This is one of those books that is almost impossible to review. In reading it, so many beliefs and perspectives are shaken up, turned upside down, inside out and/or thrown into sharp focus that words are inadequate to the task of describing the experience. This book is uniquely that – an experience – and it is one that will also be uniquely yours. I recommend this book to everyone.

    The Forgetting Time

    Very interesting well written story. Interesting to see the difference in belief between America and Asian cultures.
