Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
A look at what happens to human bodies after we die. It was interesting, but for me it bore almost no resemblance to my personal experience or belief system. My major experience of death had nothing to do with either the funeral home industry or the other scenarios Roach lays out. It was gentle; religious; intimate–all things that Roach doesn’t portray. So I accepted that the experiences she describes may be true for others, but they didn’t have much resonance for me.
