    A witty, unflinching, and provocative memoir about one woman s journey into the fact, fiction, and fraud of the modern mystical complex

    In the months following the breakup with her longtime boyfriend, Victoria Loustalot crossed paths with multiple psychics eager to impart their vision Persistent and prescient, each one slightly chipped away at Victoria s innate skepticism She had to admit that what they knew about her past was eerily accurate As for her future She couldn t shake the feeling that some powerful force in the universe was trying to tell her something and, for once, she ought to listen Or at least investigate.

    In Future Perfect, Victoria draws on her own personal experience to launch a broader inquiry into the phenomena of psychics, shamans, astrologers, and their fans Through historical documents and interviews with clairvoyants, seers, and their believers, Victoria opens herself up to the modern mystical complex in cultures and cities around the globe She pays close attention to what they have to tell us about how we choose to live, what we might be missing out on in the process, and what in the world we re supposed to do with all that information.

  • Full disclosure I received this book free as a member of Prime through s First Look promotion I ve been studying what the author refers to as the woo woo stuff since the early 1980s, and have been a Reiki master since 1999 I do not practice on a professional basis.This book was nothing than a vehicle for a New Yorker with an MFA to publicly express her level of discontent It has little or nothing to do with the title, as the reader eventually realizes she had no intentio Full disclosure I receiv [...]


  • Did not finish.This was one of the December 2018 First Reads choices I am about 20% in and have decided to stop because life is too short to waste on a book I don t love.I was intrigued by the topic However, while well written, there is too much here I ve learned waaaay about the author s young adult life than about anything related to mystics I feel like I m walking down a path and I m constantly being led off down side paths We re not getting anywhere.I m simply not enjoying i Did not finish.T [...]


  • This is genuinely the worst book I have read all year It s 12 26 so that means something Honestly it may be one of the worst books I have ever read I feel like the biggest problem is not the quality of the writing although the entire book seems to be written in stream of consciousness , but the entire concept of the book This is really the first book I felt the need to write a bad review about.This is not a skeptics search for an honest mystic This is someone who dabbles in spiritualism This is [...]


  • Jumbled and rambling This book does not follow a skeptic s search for an honest mystic Mostly this follows a woman s relationship with a new boyfriend, which happens to overlap with a period of time when she was researching astrology She offers little insight on spiritualism, and spends most of the book responding to random New York Times pieces and musing on how she expects this book will be received This would have benefitted from some structure, but because of the meandering style it wa Jumbl [...]


  • Giving this 2 stars only because I feel sorry for the author I actually started to enjoy the book in the beginning and then it completely fell apart This book is disorganized and all over the place.


  • Kindle Good title.Loustalot has commitment issues and they aren t just related to her romantic relationships On the one hand she claims she is a skeptic, on the other hand, she falls into a lot of woo woo really easy.She can t commit Is she a skeptic or is she a believer She wants to play both sides.She doesn t believe in psychics, but after her first reading, she actively pursues the prediction that she s going to meet a tall Prince Harry type guy and fall in love She jumps in with both Kindle [...]


  • A self absorbed, trivial and meaningless memoir More about her life tribulations than about a search for any type of mystical knowledge I ended up knowing about her and her various dysfunctions and don t we all have them than I did about psychics The only reason I gave it 3 stars was that I felt badly giving less as she does know how to write Next time, call it what it is and don t use a thinly veiled disguise of researching for mystical knowledge This book is exactly why I don t A self absorbed [...]
