For most of this book, I was pretty meh. The concept was interesting, talking about reincarnation and past lifes, but the present day couple were not very interesting to me. Daniel can remember his past lifes, but Lucy/Sophia can't and is afraid when Daniel comes on too strong. So he gets huffy and decides to stay away from her for the next five years. She's all mopey and finally decides to sleep with her best friend's little brother (yes, he's older now but it was still kind of icky). What kept me going was the intervals of backstory that Daniel relates about his past lives.
The ending was pretty dramatic with the appearance of an antagonist from the past who seems determined to ruin their present situation, a bit too much of jumping the shark. And the final page - well, no spoilers but what a disappointment. Definitely not the book for me. ( )

I put this down after only a chapter or so. Not my cup of tea at all. Over-written, stock characters, ridiculous beginning to the love story. I hate the pseudo-damsel in distress story; she loves him even though he's never spoken to her or barely looked at her? Annoying. I've heard great things about Brashares' other books, but this one was a major disappointment.

I got part way into this audio book about time-travel/reincarnation and had to jump ship. Of course it is 2 souls intertwined through millenia, but only one realizes it. The story takes place partly in modern day (2000s) VA with the love interest (Lucy/Sophia) pretty much unaware of her past lives, but her true love Daniel, very much aware and pursuing her through lifetimes and historical moments. They are seniors in high school in this current incarnation. Although the concept is explained rationally enough and bolstered by some scientific data, it seems pretty far-fetched to have SO many lives. Once Daniel's past-life nemesis showed up in the present, I was done. ( )

I have to say I was SO disappointed with this book. :( The main plot of the book is so interesting and could have been done so much better. It was very slow moving and the time periods that Daniel lived during weren't even that interesting. It wasn't until the very end of the book that I could start to actually like the two characters as a couple because they were rarely together during the first 3/4 of the book! It didn't fit that Daniel was SO in love with Sophia/Constance/Lucy when he had never really gotten to know her. He spent a lot of the time totally pining over her and not doing anything. Then you have the antagonist who also rarely makes an appearance, has no real motive and never is given an ending. Actually the whole book isn't really given an ending. It just sort of stops. I have no idea what happened to Daniel or Lucy. If the ending wouldn't have been left so open and things had actually been wrapped up better then I think I would have walked away from this book with a better feeling. I guess if you like slow moving star crossed lover type stories you will like it. Not that I always have to have a happily ever after but I at least expect SOME sort of ending!! ( )

I have been wanting to read this book for a long time. When I first read about it, I was fascinated by the reincarnation aspect of it. I was not disappointed. I'm not sure if this book is considered YA, but it really didn't have that normal YA feel, if you know what I mean. When Daniel and Lucy 'meet' in the present time, they are teenagers, but Daniel is various ages throughout the book as he recounts his past lives beginning in the 500s AD. These are the parts of the book that I most enjoyed...the looking back in history. Daniel has been reincarnated many times over and he remembers every life he has led. I'm not sure if that would be a blessing or a curse and I do not think that Daniel always looked on it as a blessing either. Intertwined in the story is the love story between Daniel and Lucy/Sophia. Lucy does not remember her past lives and when Daniel approaches her with the idea, it spooks her. Understandable. I mean it would be pretty incredible for someone to come up to you and tell you that you have lived before. When Lucy and Daniel finally do meet again, there is an element of danger left over from the past that is hellbent to interfere. So, as we approach the end, it is very climactic and exciting and then...it just ends! I was pissed until I found out that this is a planned trilogy. Thank goodness because I'm not sure the book would have survived my wrath.

I am a person who likes to think that we are reincarnated each time we die. The reasons for my feeling this way are because of children who have imaginary friends, which I had when I was a child. I believe that these children are remembering past lives. Also, I believe that the feelings of deja vu we experience throughout life could be shadows of our previous lives. Sorry...didn't mean to get all new agey on you here, but my beliefs are just one of the reasons I liked this book. If you normally steer clear of YA novels, don't do it on this one. Like I said, it's not your normal YA book. And if you like an historical aspect in books, you will most probably like it as well. I'm not saying that it has the most extensively researched historical bits I've ever read, but it's believable in its own right. In all, I recommend this book.
