Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore


Milo is the oldest soul in the universe, but he just can't seem to get to get it right. The goal: become one with Everything. Yet, our intrepid hero manages to mess up every life he is given. He has been catapulted into castles, eaten by sharks, watched the Apocalypse, never getting any closer to the literal end goal. Complicating matters, Milo meets Suzie, aka Death, and the two fall madly in love. Now, Milo is intentionally screwing up his chances of attaining Oneness with the Universe in order to be with her. However, the powers-that-be are getting fed up and if Milo can't find his way to Nirvana soon, he will be erased from existence. 

Written in a series of vignettes, each chapter opens in a different lifetime. The tone is often lighthearted, even when the themes are dark, including death, imprisonment and disease. Mostly humorous, readers with be enchanted by the author's witty interpretations of life, death and philosophy. 

Michael Poore takes readers on a roller coaster through time and space that always ends in the Afterlife.
