Sum: Tales From The Afterlives by David Eagleman

GENRE: ??? | PAGES: 110

My rating: ★★★★

Sum reads like an amazingly original set of musings, about life after death. Far from the conventional concepts of Heaven and Hell, this takes us into forty imagined Afterlife settings, fraught with seemingly fresh circumstances that then slowly filter out into the familiar chaos of life as we know it. An absolute mind-fuck.

In the afterlife you may find that God is the size of a microbe & unaware of your existence. Or you may find the afterlife contains only those people whom you remember. In these tales, David Eagleman kicks over the chessboard of traditional notions and offers us a dazzling lens through which to see ourselves here & now.
