Author: Mary Roach
This is my 2nd read for the year
The author takes a year long look at what happens when we die. She explores what people believe happens to them - if some sort of our selves continue on after this life is over. She speaks to scientist, mediums, schemers and engineers all trying to prove - or disprove - that there is "life" after death.
I love Roach's books. My favorite genre is non-fiction, and her novels never disappoint. She is funny and thorough in her research. The writing is wonderful as always. This is my 3rd book of hers that I have read (I highly recommend her others "Stiff", and "Fuzz"). We all long to know what is going to happen after we die. She approaches each person she talks to with an open mind. While you might not come away from this book with feelings one way or another, it was an entertaining read. I had no idea there were so many people out there doing research to try and get to the bottom of that long unanswered question.
Good read. I am looking forward to reading her next book.
