The Five Times I Met Myself REVIEW

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "If only I could go back in time and tell myself XYZ, none of this would be happening right now" ?? I'm sure most of us have. That is the basis behind. Rubart's, The Five Times I met Myself. Brock, the main character, learns how to control his dreams after he has the same recurring dream. Thus, he is ultimately able to try and "fix" mistakes in the past to impact his present (and his future.) But he soon learns, sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other past side. Not a "dumbed down" book for sure !Thought provoking, and pretty great!



About the book:
The Five Times I Met Myself (Thomas Nelson, November 2015)

What if you met your twenty-three-year-old self in a dream? What would you say?

Brock Matthews' once promising life is unraveling. His coffee company. His marriage.

So when he discovers his vivid dreams---where he encounters his younger self---might let him change his past mistakes, he jumps at the chance. The results are astonishing, but also disturbing.

Because getting what Brock wants most in the world will force him to give up the one thing he doesn't know how to let go . . . and his greatest fear is that it's already too late.

Overall:

Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable read. It is not a light read, but it is not a stiff, difficult read either. It is not your average fiction novel. It is a thought provoking, "have to use your brain" type book, and I really appreciated that. for me, this book really makes you think about your current situation and wonder if you had the chance to do a remake, or talk to your younger self....would you? Would you risk everything you have NOW for everything you thought you wanted then? That's a big question to ask. Just because we know our past, and we live in our present, we have no way of knowing what our future holds. Food for thought....
