5.0 out of 5 stars The Silent Stones - The new Celestine Prophecy?, 30 Jan 2003
This review is from: The Silent Stones: A Spiritual Adventure (Paperback)
I've read Diana Cooper's books for years and have thoroughly enjoyed watching her progress from a sort of life coach to her present philosophy - a much more esoteric and metaphysical way of thinking. Some authors of factual books don't translate very well to novels but Diana is an exception to this rule. I liken The Silent Stones to The Celestine Prophecy because it is essentially putting across the same message - that there are those amongst us whose purpose is to lead the world into love and light and that, once the critical mass of "light-workers"is reached, we will all automatically become better people.
To be honest, the only thing that kept me reading the Celestine Prophecy was that I got interested in the message and wanted to see what the spiritual laws were about. The actual writing I found quite excrutiating but I soldiered on to the end and was glad I did because I did finally get the point. Diana's novel is different. The writing is excellent and the story gripped me from the start. She was obviously guided to write in novel form in order to reach a wider market, since she would, essentially, be preaching to the converted if she had written it in her usual way. I was loathe to put it down and it was one of those books that you want to know the ending but you don't want it to end. It left me thinking that there is hope for this crazy world of ours after all and I can't wait for critical mass to be reached!
