Regression

Alexis, a seventy year old man begins his story as a confession stating that he has committed a murder, killing not just anybody but a woman he claims to have loved dearly at the time. The narrative then follows how he finds a woman by the name of Sofia particularly attractive on Facebook. He makes an elaborate plan to casually approach her online, taking measured steps to get to know her, despite being married himself and also knowing that Sofia was in turn married. The book dwells on the mystery of past lives and explores why Alexis keeps gravitating towards this strange woman from another part of the world.

This is a thought-provoking story that explores a mans life, and his past lives, and shows how they all converge into one man’s life changing realization that he is connected to a person over several lifetimes. Alexis feels an inexplicable attraction to Sofia. He claims to be in love but he never admits his feelings to her. The whole narrative is written from the male point of view, specifically from Alexis’ perspective, so we understand his point of view in depth and get a story that is colored by his unique interpretation. Although not always relatable, he is certainly a provocative character that challenges and engages readers.

The story does not shy away from vivid details from the past. There is a ghastly murder scene where Alexis strangles his young pregnant wife, because of a distorted logic of not letting any other barbarians touch her. The scene is shocking and certainly shows a contrast in worldviews, and shows an ardent point of view that is consistent throughout the story.

Regression is a provocative supernatural love story that spans millennia and explores the idea of reincarnation in interesting ways. Author Sergiu Urma has written a fascinating romance novel woven with a mystery that takes readers on a unique journey into the multiple histories of one man’s past.
