    1 thought on “The Reincarnation of Peter Proud”

    1. Reincarnation of Peter Proud by Max Simon EhrlichMy rating: 3.5 of 5 starsSome books are great because they capture a story, others a place, and others a time. Max Ehrlich's Reincarnation of Peter Proud is a great snapshot of the early 70's, with the "trippy" 60's still reverberating and morphing into burgeoning New Age movement. At least, that's how it feels. I wasn't there, so I really don't know. The closest I can get is the TV, movies, and book like the Reincarnation of Peter Proud, which fe [...]

    2. When we were visiting our son Scott not long ago, he handed me an old hardback copy of The Reincarnation of Peter Proud and asked if I remembered it. Yes, I said - but quite honestly, any familiarity was for the title alone. I knew I'd read it way back when it was published in 1974, when Scott was about 11 years old and I'd just returned to work after exactly that many years as a stay-at-home mom.I also remembered that I really liked it, but the story - and why I liked it totally escaped me. Now [...]

    3. This book blew my sixteen year old mind when I originally read it at the recommendation of my dad. It was one of his favorite books. My dad died a few years ago, and I found the old hardcover in his bookshelf while cleaning it out. Needless to say, I had to read it again to see if it was as engaging as I had remembered.This book is a quick read, not only because of its length but because the author does not waste words; he is not prone to detailed descriptions of anything. His writing is efficie [...]

    4. Apparently famous and even cinematically adapted, this 70s novel plants itself firmly into the Shirley MaClaine / past lives territory. The basic premise is that while most reincarnations are impossible to confirm due to logistics (i.e. tracking down a Roman warrior or some such person from centuries ago), but Professor Proud is having flashbacks into a reincarnation so recent, it's back to back with his present life, thus making it traceable. Which he proceeds to do. Which takes some time and e [...]

    5. Surprised myself with this one. Never saw the film (though I am old enough to had heard about it at the time of it's release in the early 70s). There was overt sex in the movie and bonking your possible own daughter was a bit too much for me, so I never did see the film.Now, almost 50 years on. Picked up a better condition one then what's being used as the novel front cover pictured here. May do an update Cover could had been less too risque so I imagine this was done to the belief that Sex Sell [...]

    6. I was on the verge of giving at least 4 stars for this flick until that horrible ending. Really disappointing the way things turned around at last. It made everything Peter did throughout the story to reveal the mystery pointless. But this was a gripping story from the start to that point. For that, I give 2 stars to Max Ehrlich.

    7. A book that garnered rave reviews by the great Max Ehrlich back in the 70s; I got mine from my book club at the time as the choice of the month. This was another great read, easy to read, it kept my attention and it was fun to read. When the movie came out it was pretty much the same as the book but of course something was missing as always. Looking at the movie version of a book always misses something, it has something to do with being by one's self alone at home, sitting on a chair reading a [...]

    8. I read this book a few years ago. I found it on the 'lending shelves' of my dad's beach house bookcase. I remember really liking the story. The theory of reincarnation always fascinated me. I loved how Peter found out who he was and the mystery of his past life unfurling intertwined with his new life.

    9. While enjoyed this book the pacing seemed a little rushed in the last few chapters. The story has a slower but enjoyable pace throughout up until the final chapters where it really feels rushed to me. However, I would recommend this book as I really enjoyed the story. It keeps you wondering. I only wish it went a little deeper into the some of the emotions of the characters. For example when Peter meets Jeff's mother I felt this could have gone further.

    10. What a strange little book.I liked it, as it kept me turning the pages, but now, I feel that I need to dig out and, finally, read my Bridey Murphy and Edgar Cayce books as both were mentioned so frequently throughout this book.

    11. I remember the movie. I was being babysat sometime in the late seventies and this was on television or home video, or dare I say betamax? In any rate, I remember the opening and the closing of the movie and some scenes of tennis. Hope the tennis wasn't a spoiler. Nevertheless, some thirty five or forty years later I decided hey, I recall this, somewhat, and picked up the book. Now, the book has same opening and plot points, well, hell, Max Ehrlich wrote the screenplay so of course one would thin [...]

    12. This work is a minor cult classic from the early 1970s. Reincarnation had begun to arouse the interest of Western society and Ehrlich tapped into that curiosity with this, his best known novel. I read it as a teenage schoolboy and have just re-read it 35 years later.The premise is entirely gripping - Peter Proud's vivid dreams are actually memories of a former life 30 years ago. Proud sets out to track down the locations and players from his "dreams," urged on by a somewhat self-interested para- [...]

    13. As I go through my daily and weekly routine, something will trigger a memory of yet another book I read long ago that I can add to my "read" list. At work today, Suzanne Weyn's Reincarnation crossed my desk, and I flashed on The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. I read it when it came out in 1974* and was completely enthralled. From that point on I was sure reincarnation was THE ANSWER. As a teen, I read all the books my step mother read, and this was one of those that excited both of us. For weeks [...]

    14. Dr. Peter Proud’s ordinary life as a professor in California is threatened by recurrent dreams that all end the same: with his murder in a lake at night by a mysterious woman named Marcia. These dreams—which he comes to believe may be flashbacks from a previous life—become so disturbing that he seeks answers from a sleep researcher, a clairvoyant, and an expert in psychic phenomena in order to recover his past. But he soon discovers a new dimension to his dilemma while watching a televisio [...]

    15. I remember when the movie came out and the movie poster that always kind of stuck in my head, but I was too young to go see it. Somehow this title crossed back into my view recently and after all these years I tackled the story. The story is somewhat predictable but not any more than the majority of genre-ish works, although this book is not so genre standard. What I think really helps it is the essence of its time that is has. It is like someone found a way to bottle up the early 70's and injec [...]

    16. Another old book from my stash of booksale finds. This was an interesting, quick read. Dr. Peter Proud has vivid dreams. They are the same 5 or 6 dreams all having to do with a man unknown to Peter and referred to as "X" and a woman named Marcia. In the most disturbing of the dreams, Marcia kills the man referred to as "X". Little by little these "dreams" start making their way more into Peter's consciousness and are starting to interfere with his life. His search for help to find the reason for [...]

    17. Ah, I remember reading this book as a tween/early teen in the 1980s. I was so impressed then, as it was one of the first books for an adult audience that I'd read. Reading it now, I must say that the idea and the plot are compelling, but the storytelling is lacking. We only get to know the characters superficially, and even this is dependent on Harlequin-espye prose. I recently read that this was going to be re-made as a movie by David Fincher. If so, it has great promise as ling as there is a t [...]

    18. It's been a while since I've read this book, but at the time it sure made an impression. Peter Proud has bad dreams and discovers that he once lived before. When he investigates his former life he finds out more than he bargained for. Great ending. This book was once turned into a movie (with Superman's Margot Kidder in a prominent role) but the end result wasn't that good. So a new movie would be a great idea

    19. I remember seeing this book in the bookstore when I was a kid in the 70s and wanting to read it. I finally read it a couple of years ago and was disappointed. I was expecting something enlightening, but this reads more like a cheap pulp novel, with lots of gratuitous sex and violence. The protagonist is not likable at all. I kept hoping for bad things to happen to him. The book is slighty redeemed by the interesting plot twist and the ending.

    20. How hard it is to hide our past? The murdered of the previous birth (Peter) begins to recollect his previous life in his this current birth, so that his assasin of the previous life (= his wife) had to plot and murder him for the second time. I like the novel's moral theme rather than its reincarnation references Now,I am going to watch the movie.

    21. A fast read. I read it years ago and stumbled on it again. A good plot idea - I found I couldn't put it down. Peter proud is plagued by reoccurring vivid dreams that are destroying his life. His quest to solve the mystery of these images takes him on a journey across the country-and face to face with a past life. A good travel read- engaging quick.

    22. I thoroughly enjoyed this older book from the 1970s. I vaguely, and I mean very vaguely recall snippets from the movie based on this book. I'm not sure when I saw it but it was decades ago, and I didn't remember enough to know what was going to happen with the story. So it was enjoyable to read, and kept me engrossed till the final page. "No Marcia! NO!!!!

    23. This is a book that keeps popping up in my life under odd circumstances. The latest is when I found a first-edition on the NJ Transit train to Trenton from NYC. I took that as a sign that I should start reading it. That's a comment, not a review.

    24. Actually first read this book when I was 14 years old and couldn't put it down. Couldn't really remember much about it, so I re-read it this weekend. And I couldn't put it down again!! It won't win literary awards, but it kept my attention and I enjoyed it much.

    25. Exciting; enjoyable. Sucks you right in, easy read and brings forth many questions of reincarnation. Is somewhat dated to when it was written in 1974 but that's ok with me since I remember that decade.

    26. Like many of the reviewers in of this book, I read it years ago when I was younger - and remember enjoying it immensely. I would highly recommend it, especially if anyone has any thoughts about reincarnation.

    27. I read this back when it first came out and I remember liking it. then I saw the movie, not sure which one I enjoyed more. Going back and reading again was enjoyable,I remembered quite a bit. yes it was worth the 're-read
