The Prince of Soul and the Lighthouse by Fredrik Brouneus
The Prince of Soul and the Lighthouse by Fredrik Brouneus. Pub.Steam Press, 2011.
This is a novel that talks about deep things such as the soul and reincarnation but it does it with great wit and humour. It is a book for secondary school students and young adults and it is very easy to read.
George Larson is 18 and in past lives unbeknown to him he has been a fish, and anteater, Isaac Newton and the king of soul Otis Redding. While he was Isaac Newton he invented a mechanism that helps the newly dead to reincarnate into something acceptable to them like another human being instead of an animal.
Devious people want this invention which is called a Lighthouse for want of a better word and George larson has no idea what is going on.
Firstly he is visited by his dead uncle, then a Tibetan Monk comes calling and the Finnish exchange student, the drop dead gorgeous Kaisa seems to know something as well. Urged by the Tibetan monk, George goes looking for the Lighthouse to save the world and has an adventure that will have you smiling and admiring at the wit of it all.
Brouneus says in the book that “fiction has to be credible to be believed, to be real”. I do believe he has done it!
