Synopsis from Goodreads:

7 Days With Adam is a brilliantly crafted work about Adam, the first man, who visits the author and shatters many of his core beliefs about God, creation, the basic nature of humans and this world. He has astonishing revelations about his and Eve's real legacy. After the 7 day visit, he leaves the author enlightened with actual exercises, prayers and meditative techniques that we can all use to access our Divine Inner Power and achieve mastery in our lives. This book is a testament to the value of storytelling in spirituality, and to disciplined spiritual practice and being attuned to the Higher Self and Divine Inner Light that is in all of us.

My Review:

This novella is quite well written and insightful. It really makes you think about spirituality and about the world around you. Speights puts spirituality in a modern day context. The story does get a bit preachy at times, but hey, that`s what the story is about, right?

Speights keeps his writing to the 1st person. This makes the story extra enjoyable and much more personal. It`s written the way that people really think – it`s a bit scatterbrained but with a definite forward flow.

The main characters in this novella remain quite superficial. You don`t get to know them at all outside of their conversation in the story. This made it quite difficult to relate to the story as a whole as I had no connection what so ever to the characters.

Overall, this was an enjoyable read. It made me think and left me with a sense of self.
