This is a good book, and an interesting exploration into all things related to the concepts of destiny, fate, free will and choice, and how these can affect our lives.
The book explores in varying detail: historical ideas and philosophical thinking about fate and free will; evolution; quantum physics; The Law of Attraction; the paranormal; DNA; astrology; and religious ideas about reincarnation.
It will not give you a definitive
answer as to whether our lives are predetermined, or if we have a
choice over what happens to us, but it introduces and explains many
different beliefs, from religious to scientific and everything in
between. It also affirms the notion that most people believe in
something in between i.e. that both destiny and choice play a part in
our lives to a certain degree. I wasn’t sure whether all of the
information in the book was accurate (for example, the lines shown on
the hand when the author was describing palmistry did not correspond
with the traditionally accepted palmistry lines), and some of the
scientific/quantum physics explanations left me confused. On
the whole though, it is a fun and entertaining look at different
ideas surrounding whether fate is responsible for what happens in our
lives. I also liked reading the true stories at the end of the
book about how fate/destiny/free will had played a part in different
On the whole, the books seems well researched
and contains a great deal of information on the subject that will
help to inspire people who would like to look deeper into these
I like the author’s style of writing and her upbeat and humourous narrative helped to keep me interested.
There is definitely a lot of food for thought contained within the pages of this book and I would recommend it to anyone who has ever wondered whether our lives are controlled by a higher power, or whether we can steer our lives in any direction we choose.
