    The premise of Old Souls seems pretty promising a happily married man with a kid and a good job discovers that he had been reincarnated several times So, a reincarnation theme is a pretty easy allegorical source for helping readers think about the past And the look of this book, illustrated very nicely by Les McClaine, is attractive And I like that title that s a concept with which I am familiar, as sometimes you see a wise beyond her years kid identified as an old soul Sometimes people The premise of Old Souls seems pretty promising a happily married man with a kid and a good job discovers that he had been reincarnated several times So, a reincarnation theme is a pretty easy allegorical source for helping readers think about the past And the look of this book, illustrated very nicely by Les McClaine, is attractive And I like that title that s a concept with which I am familiar, as sometimes you see a wise beyond her years kid identified as an old soul Sometimes people say it to indicate they were probably priests or shamans or Mother Earth in past lives The trouble with this story is the story A guy we don t really ever care about is perfectly happy until he encounters an old homeless man claiming he is the guy s gr...

    The problem with this book for me is that if you read it as a reincarnation skeptic, it looks a lot like a bunch of white male characters appropriating the suffering of slavery and the rape of Nanking for their middle class mid life crises If you buy into the reincarnation conceit, then you have the optics of white guys getting a free pass for all the cultural appropriation they want.And we re asked to sympathize with the slave owner who nobly decides to free his slaves once he is dead and cann The pro...

    The premise is initially fascinating but the book loses momentum, and fails to build This is a text that does not becomecomplex, but starts out well and then fails to achieve liftoff So why three stars Because it is well done, with a neat resolution just one that feels trite to me However, there...

    Old Souls isof an interesting thought experiment than a fully formed book It also fails to fully introduce the main character for the first 30 or so pages, which is an odd choice In any case, the idea here is that, with the help of a crazy homeless man and a mysterious guru, Chris discovers he can r...

    An interesting premise with so so execution.I find the idea of reliving lives compelling and wished the creators had fleshed out the concept I, however, didn t care about the protagonist who came across as selfish I asked myself Why, oh why, is he doing this The art is clear and allows for smooth storytelling Colors, as often with longer graphic novels, are minimalist but help the dreamy and moody atmosphere of the book.It was a fast, fast read thanks to efficient visual storytelling but la An interesting premise with so so execution.I find the idea of reliving lives compelling and wished the creators had fleshed out the concept I, however, didn t care about the protagonist wh...

    I finished this in one day because I couldn t put it down What if you could remember all your past lives and what if you could find those that were important to you in those lives Would they be someone far off in a distant place or right there with you like before Old Souls follows Chris as he discovers through the help of his Chinese grandmother from a past life memories of his past lives and one in particular start...

    Incredibly interesting premise My main issue was how the protagonist s obsession that drove him to leave his wife and kid wasn t really explained very well, and the ending was unearned and too quick Fantastic artwork
