really liked it

This is not a book I would normally pick out to read. However, the cover and the type/print looked inviting and the teaser certainly piqued my interest.
It does deal with death, thus the title, but it gives the reader things to ponder.
Even if you are a devout Christian and have a strong faith in God and heaven, there are still things to wonder about. Do you go straight to heaven? Do you stick around and try to say your good-byes or check on people? How does your soul leave and move on?
There is some humor in the book as well. I got dirty looks from laughing out loud until I explained the book's beginning and what was going on at the time of my laughter.
Probably not something you would go out and pick up to read but definitely worth the time.
