really liked it

Elsewhere definitely took a new twist on the afterlife. Decreaing in age? Reverting back to a baby to be sent back into the world? Definitely unique.
In addition, I love all things romantic, so the idea of a complex love triangle between a recently deceased wife, a now-young husband, and a teen girl was enough to peak my interest.
I admire the author's creativity, imagination, and careful thought process, considering every detail of this afterlife so that the reader is left without many curiousities. I also enjoyed the emotional tourmoil he adds. The conflict between accepting death and desiring life back on earth is a struggle I'm sure many who die young would experience, adding realism to the text.
