    It takes quite some brain acrobatics to follow this story. But I loved it. Although it's fiction and contradicts what we have learned in school how the world works, it makes you wonder. And at the end, you feel quite comfortable following Oversoul Seven around with no time and no space. It makes all perfect sense ... until you put the book down and come back to time-space reality, and then you wonder some more. It takes quite some brain acrobatics to follow this story.

    I only recently remembered the name of this book, which was frustrating because I had such a strong reaction to its storyline. I read one of the three books in the trilogy about a decade ago and have not stopped pondering its premise. During the time I was reading the book, my husband was away on a business trip. He didn't know what I was reading. One morning he called to tell me that during the night I had appeared to him on the balcony of his hotel room. He was absolutely convinced he saw me t I only recently remembered the name of this book, which was frustrating because I had such a strong reaction to its storyline.

Only after he relayed his experience did I tell him what I had been reading the night before and that I had gone to sleep mulling the concept of astral projection in my head. While this may not be the strongest piece of literary fiction, I had one of the most profound experiences of my life because of it.

    The book breaks all your preconceptions of the world and how the universe works, but for this you have to be broadminded and welcoming the thought that's being told in the book. The author, Jane Roberts explains the point very well. She start's off with a slow rhythm and then increases the pace pulling us into the concept and the story line. The book is quite an interesting read, it explores many of the minute details of consciousness and universe which many people just over look or take them fo The book breaks all your preconceptions of the world and how the universe works, but for this you have to be broadminded and welcoming the thought that's being told in the book.

Enjoy your education. :) *thumbs up*

    I read this book back in the early 80's and remembering some of the thoughts in it made me want to read it again. This is a book written by Jane Roberts (her first and maybe only fiction book) who, until her death was a channel for an entity who called itself "Seth". If you are into metaphysical ideas, you will enjoy it. It's well written and is a fascinating treatise on time. However, I think it's out of print. I had to get a used copy from Amazon.

    I would give this book a 5 for tackling a difficult and fascinating subject of energetic (or spiritual) connections through time and space. I didn't enjoy the dialogue heavy last half of the book as much as the set up. I initially read this book in the 80's, and seem to recall that the second book in the series improves.

I inherited this book in a collection of science fiction novels from an out-of business bookstore, and sci-fi is definately where this book belongs, regardless of how much anyone may beleve in Seth. There are some suprisingly advanced sci-fi concepts to be found in the story, but the overall kookiness of the oversoul structure and 'Ancient Astronauts' concepts so popular in the seventies leave the reader quite confused about how to regard this book. I regard it as somethg fun I read but better left in a used-bookstore shelf.

    This is a very intriguing book. It follows four people that are the same soul at different points in time. I had very strange dreams the whole time I read this book, and have tried to meditate a lot more lately. Very different, but kind of reminds me of the book Ishmael.

    Fascinating! I wanted to read a book about perception and perspective and creation and all that, and this was perfect. There was materialization and dematerialization of matter and jumping in and out of different bodies, little points of light just hanging out, hahaha! Really good story.

    After being confused at first, our Book Circle had great conversations about time, and life, and the story itself. An older novel that makes you think about possibilities by the author of the Seth Materials, Jane Roberts.

    If you want a theory on what happens to our soul before and after our earthly life, read this.

    First in a trilogy. I liked the concepts these books are based on. Read it again a couple of decades later and still liked it.

    A facinating book discussing how all time is happening at once. It challenges your mind.

    Having read some of the Seth material, I was still attempting to get my head around some of the concepts. This fictional format was a practical application to demonstrate the Seth teachings. Throughout it, Oversoul Seven is linked to four different soul-bodies, each inhabiting a separate era in Earth history, and the plot follows their life progressions. Ultimately, Seven understands that all time is concurrent - Now, not linear past/present/future; that our thoughts create our concrete reality; Having read some of the Seth material, I was still attempting to get my head around some of the concepts.

The genre could be variously described as fantasy or sci-fi or spiritual. I found myself somewhat impatient with Roberts’ lackluster writing style, although some of her poetry attributed to the ancient era was profound and insightful. I was intrigued enough to likely read the next story in the trilogy someday.

    This is Unique book. I wasn't really sure what to expect but it certainly surprised me. It is a fiction story that somehow manages to simply the concept of simultaneous time, which can be a little hard for the imagination to grasp as we are so used to thinking in a linear fashion. So I really loved the way this unique story opened my mind to the concept. This is not your grand fictional read where you might be totally engrossed within the story.

    I read this book over 30 years ago and still have it in my bookshelf, after transferring across the Atlantic to Europe. It is a special book, my favorite from the trilogy. You may read it as fiction, fantasy or you may allow yourself to go further with the writing. All up to you. Having read Jane Robert's non fiction books, gave a whole other life to her fiction. A book that will stay with me forever, with its wonderfully eclectic characters.

    Had to give 5 stars to the organized brain that weaved this complicated and heady tale together. Impressive work. Interesting story with complicated themes I wish more people would spend time discussing rather than the garbage we witness in the daily news... we might have a different world if we did.

    The dates are approximate. This is a work of fiction based upon the Seth Material. I read only bits and pieces of the other books at this book, being a work of fiction, the same thing I was much more open to. I enjoyed the ideas in the book very much as I recall. As you can see it’s decades ago. On the strength of that initial opinion I do want to read the trilogy.

    If you have read the Seth books, and enjoyed them this novel puts Seth's words into a story to help you grasp the concepts he tries to convey. IT just makes sense of all Seth teaches. With that being said I can't wait to get the further education of oversoul seven.

    If the Seth books are the theorem, then this is the practical application to it. The whole world view seems much more vivid and clear as it plays out in front of you. I wonder how much sense it would have made if I hadn't been familiar with Seth's teachings, but I guess not many people will read this book who never previously read a Seth book. As novels go, it was catching. I loved the different time locations, I found fascinating both 35,000BC and the 23rd century.

I wonder how much sense it would have made if I hadn't been familiar with Seth's teachings, but I guess not many people will read this book who never previously read a Seth book. As novels go, it was catching. I loved the different time locations, I found fascinating both 35,000BC and the 23rd century. The characters were vibrant and complex but I didn't share Seven's partiality to Josef, I found him rather irritating. I loved Ma-ah best of all and little valiant Proteus. It was very interesting that the out-of-body experience played such a big role in it. I guess it was the only way to tie in the different time frames but still, every important thing happened in dream states. Makes you want to go to sleep. The sequence in the retirement home and Lydia's passing will haunt me for a long time. I will forever wonder what's really going on in the mind of someone in their advanced old age who apparently seem so disconnected from reality. The picture painted here is so ... for lack of a better word: happy. If this is true, then there's no tragedy in death, it's truly just another joyous experience, like everything else should be. I don't pretend that I fully understand the time concepts involved here, Seven's formula and effort to explain it notwithstanding. I will take me a while before I can wrap my brain around statements such as this one: “The nineteenth-or twentieth-century ruins are underneath the new 35,000 B.C. ones because those appeared “later” from the future of Past Time, where there’s always fresh action and new things happening."

    Wow. I knew this was going to be an amazing book, but I wasn't expecting that I would love the story. The characters were amazing and engaging. And of course the ideas behind all of this. Definitely need to reread this at some point, to let it all sink in. But wow. Wow. I knew this was going to be an amazing book, but I wasn't expecting that I would love the story.

    Jane Roberts was a first for me in the discovery of self. I insatiably read each and every Jane Roberts book I could find. This book in particular is wonderful as it spells out the progression of spirit in a fictionalized manner with basis in the Seth Speaks books. It was written in story-form to help readers understand the overall teaching of Seth. It is a must read for anyone desiring to understand their soul progression as seen from the 'other side'!

    While I enjoyed the premise of the book, for whatever reason, I couldn't even get through the first few chapters of this book. Whether it was the writing style of the author or something else, I felt like I was traipsing through a peat bog, waiting for it to get easier, and it never did, so I put down the book and never finished it.

    I read this book in the 90's. I enjoyed the way the lives of the characters dovetailed. I recall loaning my copy to a friend years ago and never getting it back. Seeing it here on Goodreads reminds me that I want it back! This is an interesting take on reincarnation and past lives. I read this book in the 90's.

    What a neat picture of reality; this book seems to do what religious and spiritual books cannot.
