A Thousand Years takes on the whole idea of soul mates and finding your other half to a whole new level with an interesting sci-fi twist. He-Soul and She-Soul are sent to be Level Fours souls. Their job is to spend a thousand years on earth hopefully finding each other through multiple lifetimes and helping to spread love and benefit the human race. But in their final life, a glitch in the system means She soul can communicate with Kate. Will the souls reunite in their final life? And will Kate, a romance writer that isn’t looking for love herself, find someone who will change her mind. This is an innovative twist on a relationship story and I happily flicked through the pages. The relationship central to the book is sweet if a little fast-moving to be wholly “believable”, although you are left satisfied with the ending. I enjoyed this book, I thought it was written well and it was easy to read. The main and side characters were well developed and amusing. I enjoyed that you had a glimpse into Kate’s friends’ paths as Kate traverses her own. I would have liked to have found out what the different levels mean for the souls but I think A Thousand Years is a light read that can be enjoyed easily.
Mental health is something that most don’t understand or even feel comfortable speaking about often for fear of getting it wrong. The author has taken us into the minds of what it could be like to suffer with mental health conditions. The story tells a tale about finding a cure to help the world rid of these conditions which on the basis is a well-written story but it can also help you consider how you can help, what it could be like or simply that listening & acknowledging could start to help. I enjoyed the story as a novel but also as a thought-provoking story as we engage in the ‘real’ world. Cathy Small, A LoveReading Ambassador
