    I received this book as an advanced reader's copy from Harper OneThe 13th Disciple is the story of a group of unlikely but lucky strangers who are brought together to join a Mystery School founded by a young girl who was was given the truth by Jesus and thus became his 13th disciple The group shares their stories and experiences as they embark on their journey to discover the truth for themselves It has the makings of a really good story but there isn't enough character development nor depth for me I also would have liked for there to be in the book about the young girl disciple her background and much of her future Those who want a light inspirational read will probably like this book Chopra has included as an afterword a short history of Mystery Schools and his advice on spirituality That is not my 'thing' but I think people who are interested in New Age mysticism and spirituality will appreciate this inclusion

    uite an interesting readI especially enjoyed the afterword It is difficult for me to put a review in words as I believe I will be thinking about this story for a great length of time I did enjoy though

  3. Nadya Nadya says:

    It was ok but not great I desperately wanted to like this book because I am a huge fan of DC's In the end I only finished it because I have book OCD The afterword was in keeping with his style and I enjoyed that the most I sincerely felt that the final piece could have been a whole book rather perhaps with the fiction in between then it would have been less bothersome Little things bothered me like how there was no natural flow or build up of emotions or actions or how climaxes were never reached At the moment I would say that DC needs to stick to spiritual guidance books rather than fiction

    The story was ok not great a bit slow drawn out not compelling I agree with the reviews that said that the afterword was interesting than the book There are too many better books for me to recommend this one

    The book is too Deepak ish as a novelthe non fiction afterward though was really good and deserves a couple of extra stars alone

    It seemed like it was trying to be like the Alchemist or it was the second part of a story I didn't read There were small bits that might have been interesting but it just didn't reach me

  7. Michael Dutchak Michael Dutchak says:

    The story was okay but I was unable to grasp a deeper hidden take away from this story as I thought I would and thought that it could have been made interesting

    It was first captivating then confusing but everything became clear at the last part of the bookThe story begins with a woman named Meg who suddenly had supernatural experiences which completely changed her life She became one of the chosen people to experience the stigmata of Christ Because of this she met Lilth who is also a seeker of the chosen people who would fulfill the prophecy of the 13th disciple To cut this short they met 4 other people with different personalities and backgrounds and altogether they began their search for the hidden message which the 13th disciple was trying to convey themThe confusing part was the the small flashbacks they had when they time traveled subconsciously back to the existence of the 13th disciple I was not able to fully grasp the meaning behind the 13th disciple's past memories But I was grateful enough that the author had this short explanation at the end of the story about the meaning of the Light they were seeking This made the story worth itI admired the concept of how Deepak was able to convey the spiritual message of finding one's Light in a heartfelt mystical way The different characters in the story opened up my eyes on the different realities we have in this life It was Galen who touched my heart the mostThank you

    I like the message of this book but getting there is another story It is an interesting introduction to thinking about God differently via a spiritual journey with a few fictional and historical travelers For some readers it be will be difficult to get past the unbelievable elements of the story but if you can suspend your known reality and just go with it it is useful My favorite uote which I wrote down to reference later is this To meet God as a reality you have to reach the zero point where there is faith in nothing At the zero point every false idea about God has been abandoned You cry with all your heart 'Show yourself as you really are I'm finished with fakes Either show yourself or I am lost'I am probably in the right placespace to be reading this book and can relate to this uote personallyIf you want to get the gist of it read the Afterward first or just read that It explains his way of thinking and how he infused this way into his characters Light as awareness and presence is the medium for growthI've never read anything by Deepak Chopra before and now I am interested in his other works I liked it and am in the right space to appreciate the message

    This story describes many spiritual experiences that people have and does it through the fictional events of a modern mystery school While it connects to and discusses Christianity I found the Christian storyline a bit contrived If you are looking for confirmation of spiritual experiences like prescient dreams serendipitous connections healing power seeing the light in all matter or finding love in the challenges of life this book will give you some examples I listened to Chopra narrate this story and found his reading uite distracting However the afterword that discusses spiritual paths was intriguing Chopra wrote this story to make a point and I think he succeeds at sharing his spiritual views through the characters' stories
