  Very good novel , 12/01/2010
Reviewer: Maurice Msarsa
Reviews from Congratulations! Great imagination in your story; I enjoyed the different themes of multiple lives, the idea that soul mates extend beyond a lifetime, working toward perfecting a life, complications and politics of international affairs and the state of the world in the future--it really hasn't changed much. I Was There When It Happened is a very suspenseful, thought provoking, and believable story. J.C. Burris Jr., Ed.D. High School Principal. Grand Master Martial Arts, GA ( A note addressed to the author.) You have done a fantastic job with this book. The research alone to authenticate the places and culture of each of Joshua's lives was the work of a pro. I got a big kick out of the take off on the three stooges names .It illustrated your wit and writing skill. Thank you for sharing this with me. I have enjoyed every page. Denny Shaffer, Grand Master Martial Art, SC This is the first time I have read a fictional novel (I Was There When It Happened) in many years. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. It deals with an undercover career of a workingman that led him into the political career and eventually into a world leader. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in a fictional novel. Chester Holubecki, Grand Master Isshinryu Karate, as reported in the Karate Newsletter, Holyoke, MA Under I WAS THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED..... Here's another page-turner from author Morris George, though this one has a new and unique twist: the protagonist and other characters are reincarnated from long-ago, historical lives to wield influences, both good and bad, on the course of modern-day world events. It's an original idea that keeps you on the edge of your seat, wondering just who will return next and what exactly they will do. The hero is George's typical man's man, an agent for the Central Security Agency (and more) who fights for good, protects the ladies, and makes the world a much better place. A surprise ending possibly sets the stage for George's next novel, while, spanning both time and the globe, this one offers enough material for several action-packed movies. Bob Joyce, Retired Civil Engineer, Knoxville, TN I enjoyed reading the book even though I very seldom read fiction. The thing I like about Morris George’s writing is that there is so much history and also the knowledge of world affairs is amazing. I like the fact that the book was short and very easy to read. I hope it is a success and I plan to keep up with how it is doing. D. Campbell, Owner Buick Dealership, Knoxville, TN. I WAS THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED is a highly imaginative and creative novel. As such, it sometimes stretches the boundaries of more conventional writing. However, its story of a secretive intelligence agent who draws on experiences from past lives is compelling, and at times, thought provoking. The novel is at its best through the main storyline of its central character, Joshua on assignment in the Middle East and Afghanistan and his improbable rise to power. It is entertaining reading which causes the reader to ponder the importance of priorities of love and duty when facing life decisions. Jon Loney, Retired TVA Manager, Knoxville, TN. I WAS THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED is very interesting and highly exciting. The writer’s knowledge of world history is astonishing. Rebirth is believable I feel that I have been there. Will join the writer in his quest for successful CSA assignments. I highly recommend this novel for readers that believe in rebirth and life after death. The writer ends the hero’s life leaving us looking forward to where another begins. W .H . Wright, Retired Nursing Home Administrator, Knoxville, TN "I was there when it happened" is a very enjoyable read. Not only it is entertaining but also educational in an historical context as the book follows the main character through his many lives. The novel takes place mainly in the Middle East. The author obviously knows the subject well because it is rich in detail and knowledge of the culture. Any one with an interest in history and culture will appreciate this. The characters are realistic yet colorful enough to make them entertaining. It would seem likely that the main character could have his own series of books as we follow him from one life to the next, each book focusing on one life. I highly recommend this book. Marty Beam, Radiologist, Raleigh, NC. As I started to read I WAS THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED I was curious and exited regarding what I would discover. This was, in my mind, going to be an adventure. I was pleasantly surprised to discover an abundance of history information included in the opening chapters. As I got deeper into the story I had an inexplicable reaction. As a youngster in my early years, I spent many exciting moments watching movie serials about heroes that managed to resolve and deal with complicated situations. I found myself reliving my childhood adventures with the serials. I discovered a lot of similarities in terms of the hero’s challenges and creative resolutions. As I relived that childhood excitement I realized that I was thoroughly enjoying reading this book. I certainly recommend this novel. I enjoyed reading it. It was fun to read. Congratulations for an interesting piece of work. D. Bordinger, Retired High School Principal, Oak Ridge, TN I just finished reading "I Was There When It Happened". I found the book very exciting and imaginative. The characters were realistic and opens the mind to truly wonder if our spirits might be reborn in another life on earth sometime after death. The story takes the main character, Joshua X. Bedman through a current life as he recalls many of his previous lives on earth. I look forward to reading a sequel. T.
