Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives by David Eaglman

Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives
Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Such a quaint little read!

I didn’t know what to expect when going into this book but I was pleasantly surprised. Eagleman takes the reader to mystical and dark places as he contemplates what the afterlife may hold. From a heaven where Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein) is Queen to an afterlife where you act as the extras in living peoples dreams – this book is a real look into an incredible imagination. Although each tale is only a couple of pages long I was fully transported to each ghostly world. It was truly magical!

I would highly recommend to any lover of fantasy/magical realism.
