Intriguing Read ..... Recommended ..... 4 stars

"Going Deeper: How to make sense of your life when your life makes no sense" opens with the introduction. This is where the author indicates that if the reader is saddened by the way humans treat each other, suffers from allergies, feels a bit alienated from family and friends, likes to gaze at the stars and thinks often of UFOs and are more comfortable with plants or animals than people; then you too may be one of the seventy million wanderers who are here on earth. These Wanderers are here to help with the impending shift or end of the earth as we know it.

The novelized portion of the work begins with Chapter one wherein we meet Larry who has no dog and views dogs and their owners with some amusement. A freak tornado in 1999 was to change Larryís life in many ways. While he was not in Norman, Oklahoma for the F5 incident; events were set in place that would bring Larry and a most unbelieveable dog together. It did not take Larry long to learn that Zeus was no ordinary dog.

Writer Jean-Claude Koven presents one manís spiritual journey tying many New Age concepts in a single work of fiction. "Going Deeper: How tomake sense of your life when your life makes no sense" takes place in part in the Joshua Tree National Park, an abstruse, most fascinating bit of desert area under any circumstance. The physical presentation of the book is not as either novel or other mass reading edition. "Going Deeper: How to make sense of your life when your life makes no sense" is set down with an Introduction, twenty seven specific chapters, Acknowledgments, Suggested Explorations, Afterword, Glossary and an Index.

The book is meant to be read in entirety and then reread as inclination or need dictates. Chapter titles, glossary and index will serve to guide the reader to specific portions. While the book is not presented as either a novel or a self help tome per se writer Koven does offer practical advice for attaining better living and understanding. "Going Deeper: How to make sense of your life when your life makes no sense" is the tale of one manís spiritual search to understand his true nature and true mission here on earth. With the help of our High Self Writer Koven believes we can learn to live authentically in this interesting, unique and probing read.

Koven uses Larry and Zeus who acts as teacher, guide and guru to explain the nature of self/soul. Writer Koven presents his theory in clear understandable language, action moves the tale along so that reader interest is maintained from the opening chapter where we find Larry reading an intriguing newspaper ad, right on to the last pages where we find Larry wondering if it has all been a dream.

The work will have special appeal to the target audience of those readers who may have experienced some of the experiences Koven set down in the introduction. "Going Deeper: How to make sense of your life when your life makes no sense" will make a nice addition to the home library and to the home office library.

Enjoyed the read, happy to recommend.
