Apocalypse Later by Nice Mr Death (AKA Mark Speed) is a book about the end of the world and the afterlife as seen in different religions and cults from around the world.

While I am in no way religious and do not believe in End of the World theories, and there do seem to be quite a few lately, I had no interest in reading this book. As I just looked at the front cover and decided that it would be another boring book preaching about religion, God and how you should live your life. I guess there is

This book was awesome! I recommend it to anyone who loves to laugh whether they are religious or not. Mark Speed has written a witty, smart, and very humorous guide to the afterlife according different religions from the point of view of "Mr. Nice Death". It was so refreshing to learn something new while having a few laughs as well. After reading it I passed it to my hubby and he loved it as much if not more than I did! Truly the best little book I've read in a long time, so much so that I ...more

"Apocalypse Later" is a book about "the end of the world" and the many options we have to live a happily ever after-death. The book, written by "Nice Mr. Death" (aka Mark Speed) talks about many different religions and how each one views and predicts the end of the world. From the Mayans and Aztecs, to the Zoroastrians, Islamists, and Christians, with centaur Demi-gods with silver bodies and alien civilization visiting earth... this book is highly informative.

I must say that I was a bit skeptic

The author of this book was kind enough to send me a copy, and I am very grateful he did. I wasn’t too sure what to expect prior to diving in head first but what I found was a witty, informative and concise look into various religions that have come and gone or lasted through the ages. The author (as Nice Mr.Death) gives you information on the founding of the religion, current (approximate) numbers of followers, fascinatingly important tidbits on various historical figures associated with that ...more

I always thought that Apocalypse Now, and Heart of Darkness, the Joseph Conrad novel that inspired it, didn't deserve the excessive praise they received. Sure, they're considered classics by many, but they're also rather bland.

Not so, Apocalypse Later. I haven't met Nice Mr. Death, though I'm sure I will one day. This book isn't a novel, it's a well-researched, tongue-in-cheek analysis of Earth's various religions. I particularly liked the discussion on Scientology, including the lifelike drawin

I have to say that I had a great time reading this book. Not only was it informative, I laughed at all of the religions, including mine. Each religion has its own chapter and is very well thought out. I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book and am very grateful that I did. It was such a change from the usual "end of the world" books that are out there. It was very informative on each religions belief as to what the end of the world is to them. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a ...more

Never before I seen a more comprehensive guide to the "end of time" possibilities. All neatly organised in tables with comparable variables for each religion. Thanks Mark for doing the spade work! I just hope this does not fall into the wrong hands. It's powerful information for anyone thinking of setting up a new religion with a more attractive "end time" scenario.

Very humorous book. But also filled with lots of interesting, historical information. Mark Speed is one smart cookie/writer. I enjoyed this book. It is a quick read. The drawings are fun. My favorite part...we are made up of star dust.

Fun, clever analysis of the 'pros and cons' of various religions views, including atheism. Witty, and demonstrates more than a passing knowledge of the subject matter. Recommended for those with thick skin.

This is hilarious and also gives an excellent overview of all major religions. (PS If you're thinking of becoming religious, Islam is your best bet as it has the best afterlife).

I won this for free off of the giveaways page. It was pretty good. Basically the book is about about religions. What I really liked about it was the comments the author put in it. They made me laugh. But it was pretty dry.
