The first day after life is a novel that looks at what happens when you die, and the repercussions for your actions. Tian is a man who experiences the afterlife and is guided around by Irabell, a being who is charged with taking care of people during this time. Irabell was once a man, but he had killed himself 800 years before rather than to be corrupted by the powers of the High priest position in the temple. As Tian moves through the new world that he finds himself in, he reflects on his religion, the ultimate break with it that he has, his life with his family, and experiences something new that he was not prepared for.
Overall, this novel was interesting in certain respects, but at the same time was rather traditional and steady. I mean this by, the way that the novel was written, was rather boring. There was not left for the way of imagination that allowed this novel to really take off. It was a very well written novel, but there was nothing in it that really grabbed my attention. The plotline and the story itself made enough sense, however. This novel was just merely "ok".
