    One thought on “Lightland: A Soul's Journey”

    1. Text from the back cover of Lightland:THE END IS ONLY THE BEGINNINGA deadly virus rages across ancient Africa and young tribesman K'tanu is the only one who is immune. Yet without counting the cost, he gives his life to save his loved ones.After lying dormant for six thousand years, the virus, now known as Cobalt, reawakens and again begins its destructive march across the world. When all seems lost, archeologists in Africa unearth a mummy whose perfectly-preserved heart is--incredibly--immune t [...]

    2. The first section about K'tanu's life was interesting and turned out to be the best material in the novel. My trouble began in the second section which zooms to a futuristic time and introduces Chris, an anthropologist, along with clumps of researched information that should have been edited out, and, a strange author intrusion describing ludicrous fiction and attributing it to the ACLU. That bit of prose read like pot-shot, revenge-oriented fiction. Worse--it was out-of-the-blue and somewhat ja [...]

    3. I was given an autographed copy for my birthday. I read it and reread it. The story was intriguing on many levels. But the one part that really got me thinking and have thought about over and over was the food storage. Yes, food storage. The man is traveling across a desolate America that was victim to a pandemic virus. He was fine but had to travel alone. There was no government and he spent his time scrounging through abandoned houses. He stumbled across a house left by a provident living enth [...]

    4. I met Kenny Kemp at the SLC Costco where he was promoting his book. He is a very nice man, cordial and easy to talk to, and since I love reading, I decided to buy his book.The premise of the book is interesting. It's a romantic, science-fiction thriller that takes place in ancient Africa in the beginning, and then in the not too distant future. A deadly virus causes a worldwide pandemic that claims the lives of billions of people. The only hope of finding a cure comes from the mummified remains [...]

    5. If there had been a 3 1/2 stars I would have given it that, but since there wasn't and I won this book on first reads, I rounded up. It's a creative idea and an interesting story. The details about Africa, the CDC, the future, were all great. It was really interesting in that it sort of made a case for faith without promoting a particular religion. If there's a religion that shines in this it is the ancient Egyptian one. It was interesting--talking mandibles, horrible, almost omniscient viruses. [...]

    6. This book is about how a disease overtakes the world and the only hope society has is in a 6,000 year old skeleton and the canopic jar buried with it. "Lightland" will take you on an intense adventure, with some unpredictable twists, as the main characters battle to protect and use K'tanu (the skeleton) to save what's left of the humankind. It will definitely hold your interest from start to finish. It also has a touch of romance and there were a few parts, I must admit, that made me cry. It's a [...]

    7. This is a very unusual storyline. It is similar to "The Host" by Stephanie Meyer in the sense that it deals with the soul. The earth is ravaged with a terrible virus and the human race is essentially dying off. Then someone discovers that this is a recurring virus through which some people survive because they have an immunity. The search for the cure or secret to the immunity leads to Africa where a man is buried with his family. It is a problem for him to be removed from his family in any way [...]

    8. This book is different that I thought it would be. The world is about wiped out by a disease that can't be contained. A scientist clones a dead person who is immune to the disease and it deals with the ethical implications of this decision. I'm not much for the idea of wiping out the world in one fell swoop. It smacks of trying to make people fearful of each other. Couldn't decide between 2 or 3 stars, but others may like it better than I did.

    9. Since I am the author, my opinion about the book is suspect so I'll defer to the following accolades won by the book:* Gold Medal, Science Fiction, ForeWord Book of the Year Awards* Gold Medal, Visionary Fiction, Independent Publishers Association* Winner, Science Fiction, NextGen Indie Book Awards* Finalist, Thriller/Adventure, USA Best Books Awards

    10. The story is fun. The prose is fuctional. The themes are worth discussing. Part of me thinks, "Hey, Kemp took that idea from Contagion," but I know for a fact this book was printed well before I watched Gwyneth Paltrow die on her kitchen floor. So Contagion must have copied Kemp, while leaving out (what I think is) the meatier idea: Where do we go once we die?

    11. This book was really interesting. He did a good job of telling the story. I met the author and took a chance on the book. Unfortunately he uses far too many swear words for my taste. I don't think I will read anymore of his books. I would have rated the book itself higher based on the story but wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

    12. A very enjoyable and interesting take on a pandemic wiping out most of humanity. What makes this different than most is the fantastical element that reaches across time and death back to the early days of civilization.

    13. Given to me by a friend. I'm loving it. The "supernatural" isn't weird awful stuff. I was thinking it was Science Fiction because of the scientific background of the main characters dealing with Ebola.

    14. Very well written. Intriging story. Kept my attention. Very possible true scenario. Portrayed characters quite naturally. The author was pleasant to meet and I highly reccomment this book and others he has written.

    15. Don't let the cover fool you. This book is not a self-help book, but a science fiction thriller. It was quite the page turner, but I found the ending to be little bit of a let down so I only gave it 4 stars.

    16. I really loved this book. I was able to meet the author at Cosco, and he was very charming. He told me what his book was about, and his storytelling was amazing. I figured I would give it a shot, and was very impressed.

    17. I loved this book! I read it in two days. Couldn't put it down. It was lovely to meet you Mr. Kemp! Thank you for the wonderful adventure!

    18. I liked the book. But the last three pages were not at all fitting to the whole book. I felt that it just dropped you. Other then that it was a good book.

    19. Loved, just loved this book. That's basically all I can say. Imaginative, spiritual, awakening. Loved it.
