Book Description

4 Aug 2010
Reviews on 2012 The Awakening are creating a stir: "Riveting...a must..." - Midwest Book Review; "Best Fiction of the Year" - Spiritual Enlightenment Magazine; "What a gift!" - Deepak Chopra. Famed actor, Holmes Osborne (The Box, ER, Boston Legal, The X Files), wrote: 'With the suspense of a "Da Vinci Code," the spiritual awareness of "The Secret," and the fearsome aspect of Orwell's "1984,"' 2012 The Awakening will make a great film!" A global human awakening shakes the foundations of powers that have ruled the world for eons. The heroes' struggle to envision a new way of being will determine their survival. Can they? Can we? An unlikely bookish heroine, a burnt out Naval Intelligence officer, and a deadly covert operations professional's lives become entwined in this spellbinding thriller - unraveling threads of the ancient beginnings of human consciousness. Their struggle reflects that of every human being on the planet today. Current global issues are woven elegantly into a timeless saga that draws upon ancient texts and human history, aboriginal, Eastern and Western religious scriptures, and cutting edge scientific insights into the mechanism of human consciousness. Blending history, science, socio-politics, and transcendental spirituality, this cutting edge tale of vision and intrigue will leave you breathless, riveted, and reeling. NY Times best selling novelist, Steve Alten, wrote "2012 The Awakening . . . should be required reading for everyone on Wall Street and Capitol Hill." Yet what has captivated preview readers is '2012 The Awakening's' broad vision of what may be possible for humanity - if we choose that path. Former Time Magazine Person of the Year, Coleen Rowley, called '2012 The Awakening' "visionary." Jill Dutton, editor of Evolving Magazine, wrote, "Bill Douglas is a true visionary."

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read 5 Sep 2010
This is the most exciting book I have ever read. The story draws you in and it's extremely difficult to put the book down, like The Da Vinci Code on steroids. Bill addresses issues that are crucial to our time, like the future of the planet. If you want an engrossing, stellar read with deep insights, this is the book for you. If you know people who read that you really care about, this is the book for them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hippy Dippy nonsense 28 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are into spirituality and prepared to believe in an instantaneous zen inspired evolutionary jump of global awareness and morality, then 'crack on'with this one.
Really not my scene but felt driven to write my own review to level the playing field as i bought this after reading the other 5 star reviews. The female lead and her sister are quite well written personalities, however the men portrayed and the ambitions of the powers that be are one dimensional and utterly discredit the plot.
The fact it is set in our current time-line makes the pure divisiveness and the outright evil of the male American administration completely absurd. Don't get me wrong governments are divisive and make bad decisions, but not to the level implied here.
