REVIEW: Free Will by Diana Kathryn Plopa

Free Will
Diana Kathryn Plopa

What if, upon the moment of your death, you learned that Free Will wasn't just some religious rhetoric to guilt you into doing "what's right" while you were alive? What if the concept of Free Will was everlasting?

What would you think if someone told you that you had to spend seven days in Heaven on a visitor's pass. Then, you had to spend seven days in Hell on a visitor's pass. And then, you were expected to CHOOSE where you were going to spend the rest of eternity? Where would your Free Will lead you?

This is a story about Raychel, her death, and her discovery that Free Will isn't just rhetoric - it's real and it has eternal implications.

Where will free will take you?

I must admit, that at first, I was slightly skeptical about reading this book, but I never turn down an opportunity to read a new to me author. So, I started reading the book. At first, the story seemed a little crazy and slightly off to me, and it's for sure not something I have ever read before. This story has quite a unique twist to it. I was just as confused about the story as the character, Raychel, was. I was actually kind of confused and yet intrigued by it all. I know that this book is fiction, but it really got me thinking about the real Purgatory, Heaven, and Hell. This story reeled me in so much that I was hanging onto every written word on the turn of every page. I couldn't put this book down. This author is a pure genius and the story-line really kept me guessing. Everything I thought I had figured out was wrong as each turn of events were unraveled. I loved Raychel and her attitude toward everything she saw. Absolutely nothing kept her from seeking out answers, even though some of them were vague. This author did a fabulous job bringing this book to life and making me feel as if it was real and all the events that happened were real. As the events unfolded, I was able to have a vivid picture in my mind of what was happening. I must say 'BRAVO' to the author for writing such a captivating story. I believe that this book would be fun to watch on the big screen and deserves an award for its uniqueness and originality. This book not only gets my five book review, but a standing ovation too. I highly recommend this story to all adults. It's memorable and fun read.

I got a paperback copy of this book from the author at the Once Upon A Book Author Signing that was held in Michigan in August.
