Lightpoints - Review

Hello! Monday again and here we are with a new review. I got a copy of the book from the author, who send me a paperback a while ago. You can read my review below. :)
by Peter Kassan
What if you suddenly discovered you had a sense-and powers-that almost no one else in the world did? 
When Amanda Lindner Nichols, a 24-year-old graphic artist living with her husband in Queens, New York, is revived from a near-death experience, she discovers she perceives everyone around her as points of light-but not with her eyes. 
She soon learns she can not only perceive the life energy of others, but she can give and take it. With the help of others like her, she brings her husband Chris to the brink of death and back to bestow on him the same remarkable faculty, and they're the happiest they've been. 
But not for long. All over the world, people who've been revived from their own near-death experience at just the right moment discover themselves with these same unusual powers. They find ways to use them-some for good and some for evil. 
When Amanda and Chris encounter a ruthless group of gangsters with the same faculty, tragedy follows-and Amanda faces the greatest challenge of her life.



My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After experiencing a near-death experience (NDE) Amanda can sense people's energies. Now, she doesn’t feel like herself anymore, life seems different as well as everyone around her. After meeting with a support group she meets Lisa and somehow she starts to feel back on her track.

This book has a mix of topics, being NDE the first one and the different consequences it may have on people. Also I think is a book about the kind of person we can be if we were given an extraordinary ability. So you could say that is a book a story about good and evil somehow.

The book intercalates Amanda’s story and a few others too. This is great because we get to see what other around the world do with the same ability as her.

The author writes with simple words, the explanations are easy to understand and the descriptions are good enough to let us picture the world as the characters see it.

Amanda and Chris are nice characters, I think you can get to know who they are and also we can learn thing from their past (at least how they met). However, I didn’t like some of the choices they made but mainly because the arguments for them were not valid. And besides Chris seems younger than her even though he is not.

After reading the blurb I was expecting more action. I kept turning the pages, waiting for the paths of Amanda and dangerous people came to a common point but it came to late for me. The book lacks of more action; I would have enjoyed more danger or more encounters with risky situations.

Overall, Lightpoints is a fast book because is easy to read and quite engaging. If you like this topic you should give it a go.
