Going Deeper - Book Review
Going Deeper by Jean-Claude Koven is certainly a nicely
presented, hard-cover book. This fiction fantasy has an
obvious inclination to aid readers who are embarking on
their personal spiritual quest.
The main character, Larry, is going through a break down, of
sorts. He decides the best cure is to retreat into nature. The
problem is that along the way, Larry begins to hear the voice
of his dog speaking like a guru. Unsure if he is going
completely mad, he continues in shock until he is able to
absorb the shift in reality. Between Zeus, the talking dog,
and being visited by a variety of spiritual guides, Larry learns
the answers to his many questions about life, meaning,
destiny and more.
One could say this is definitely a unique story line!
Personally, I found the book difficult to read, as it was a little
too deep, sometimes tedious and occasionally the story line
seemed a little ridiculous. I truly believe it was the authors
intent to include a vast amount of information that may guide
spiritual seekers, but it is written with some elements of
humor and zest. Jean-Claude has been on an extensive
journey of his own and elements of many belief systems
can be seen throughout the book.
