READER REVIEWS

.

I'm pleased to have received the first reader reviews on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca. Each are Five Stars!!!!! Thanks to the reviewers. Also, I've included other reader comments along with exerpts from two professional reviews.

Amazon.com Reviews

"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"

"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture and humor. Mr. Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page as he draws you into his exceptional world. His portrayals of a student learning from teachers in another realm are fascinating, especially as you begin to see that the "teachers" allow the student, as well as the reader, to draw their own conclusions. Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited .Genius. An exciting, yet calming, experience that is not to be missed."

Amazon.ca Reader Reviews

"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."

Reader Comment on Messanger

"I have done nothing else since your book arrived. If my house goes to ruin, my lawyer will be in touch with you. I am making notes...so much to think about. I will have a "novel of notes" by the time I finish book one.
l came home to a certain book that kept my attention until the wee hours of this morning. The humour you interject into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius.
More later as l sink deeper into the ongoing premises you bring forth. Generally, l am a speed reader but am savouring and assimilating each sentence.
A fair ride into reality....which is how l respond to this deceptive world, seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real...... rarely have been without your book for over a week."

"An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose. N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humor together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!

"An extremely thought-provoking read. N.G. Meyers is to be congratulated not just on the breadth of his research and scholarship, but on his engaging dialogue and characters. Although this book is a fantasy it touches on many spiritual perspectives and stimulates one to contemplate their own beliefs and reach their own conclusions. This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it."

Excerpts from BLUEINK REVIEW

A fusion of philosophy, fantasy, and spiritual speculation, N.G. Meyers’ novel is comparable in theme and tone to Carlos Castaneda’s landmark books. In Elysium’s Passage, the first installment of Meyers’ Elysium saga, the narrator is James Phillips, a London philosophy professor.

After a fall nearly kills him, his spirit embarks on a journey that ultimately leads him to his divine Self and existential enlightenment. Ever the skeptic, Phillips at first finds his “new reality” hard to believe. While his comatose body is back in a London hospital bed, his essence is at the Summit existing in a log cabin with two enigmatic beings, Eli and Mo, who are teaching Phillips about the true nature of the universe and his unique place in it.

Mind-blowing statements and speculation (“…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…”) ultimately lead Phillips to accept his situation. This is a deep read—in other words, a novel not to be tackled quickly. Readers who enjoy their literary escapism mixed with a heaping helping of philosophy and allegory, will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.

Excerpts from CLARION REVIEW 

This first book in a series raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages but whose answers remain elusive. Elysium’s Passage: The Summit by N. G. Meyers follows a philosophy lecturer’s physically challenging and mind-bending climb up a mountain in search of wisdom.

Two mountain guides, Mo and Eli, mysteriously appear; they offer food and lodging while raising critical points about self-discovery and the importance of leaving mistakes in the past. Written in a confessional style, the book focuses on the James’s world weariness. At the conclusion of this book, enlightenment remains elusive.

In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed through the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are—and whether we are truly able to find contentment. During his surreal free-fall into a new level of consciousness, he discovers that fear of failure drives his swagger. With the promise of a new woman on the horizon, upcoming books may determine whether James can find greater happiness when his spirit is reunited with his body.

SUMMARY OF ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE: THE SUMMIT

 

This the first in a series of five Elysium narrations regarding a young British philosopher named James Phillips who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.  

After experiencing a near fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding about life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed, or could believe.

An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality and our ultimate destiny. 

The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

I took this picture a few years ago from Tent Ridge in Kananaskis, Alberta. Rather like how the sun was shining on it just then.
