Loved the title, so I read the book. Cool concept. Surreal at times and funny and sad too. When I want to keep reading a book 'til the end, then I rate it 4 stars, but I think it's a grade B, not a grade A. 3.75 stars. So what's missing? I guess true love. Gravity when needed. Warmth. For a book that satisfies more and is zany but warm, I suggest The Rosie Project.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I am a late bloomer as far as reading goes. I never enjoyed it as a child or teen. This all changed when I watched the hunger games and had to find out what was going to happen next. I went through the series in about a month and wasn't too happy with the ending. This happen to me again with Game of Thrones. I went through all five books in a year and needed something quicker to fill in my time until the Winds of Winter comes out. I didn't want to pick up another series and put off studying again. So I was looking through the science fiction section at B&N and came across this book. The concept of an after life intrigued me and is the only reason that I had purchased the book. I finally decided to give it a shot and I am so glad that I did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The chapters are told in different perspectives just like A Song of Ice and Fire series. Since this book is not a series the characters and chapters that may appear to be random, work out unexpectedly in the end. It did take me a while to get into the book, like the idea of having a remote hanging around your neck that can control the weather and your sleeping pattern is weird. Or that everyone is naked in the after life. Anyway this book is funny and well thought out. Towards the second half of the book I was having trouble putting it down and ended up putting off my studying. Even now I felt compelled to write a review instead of doing my structural analysis homework. I hope that you read it.
