Portals to the Vision Serpent by Carla Woody
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What did you think of the story structure? For a story that dealt with the main character discovering his past, I realled liked that this book was well-written and flowed smoothly without any abrupt switches between past and present. Carla Woody has also done extensive research about the Mayan world, ceremonies and traditions. Because these were facts, the reader is also taken on an educational journey.
Which part of the story resonated most with you and why? When Gabe talks about how his name was given. Tracing a person's history can be the most profound of journeys. Usually, it isn't what we know that has an impact on us, it's what we'll find out which makes me think of a quote by Richard Bach, "The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in a while and watch your answers change."
How do you define the central theme in this story. Preston can't really move forward in life because the questions he has about his past seem to overpower him in many ways, and he wants answers. From this point, the readers are taken on a mysterious journey of personal growth and self-discovery.
