The Soul Trains by Gerald Davis

After a terrifying nightmare, Joseph Paul Robinson wakes in the subway. But stations are named after places on the Monopoly board, all the station exits are blocked, and he's lost his memory. Eventually, he discovers that he is dead. After a bittersweet reunion with his deceased parents, he is left on his own in the Spiritual-Material Afterlife Rapid Transit (SMART) system to find his way to redemption or damnation. While following Joe, we meet others in this complex, fascinating and funny morality tale, The Soul Trains. There is Luscious "Mack" Brown, the sharecropper, facing a lynch mob in 1931. There is Tony Santini, the Korean War soldier facing his consequences in 1951. There is Effie Parker, the pure-hearted SMART guide who died rescuing children from a fire in 1870. And there is Mortese the Stalker, a Demon seeking all the souls he can get. In The Soul Trains author Gerald Davis takes us on a ride into an imaginative exploration of the afterlife, inspired by modern accounts of near-death experiences. It is a highly readable parable addressing classic themes of good against evil, of faith, social responsibility, and the decline of American values.

This book was very intriguing and kept my interest the whole way through. This doesn't fall into my normal genres that I read, but I'm so glad I picked it up. I definitely recommend this book!

This is a story for anyone who wonders, 'where do we go when we die?' I think there's just too much evidence -- ancient and moreso recent -- to deny that we go SOMEWHERE. Besides, I can feel it on the inside ... don't you? You know blackfolks, we're so 'spiritual!' So I thought up this little fantasy. Anyway, muchthanks for the support and muchluv2yall! Your feedback means so much. Feel free to contact me: May God bless ...

Where did the writer get the idea of souls in the grand concourse train station? I thought that was unique. I found myself looking at people on the subway platform wondering who might be real and who might be a ghost. But that's cause I had the book with me reading it on the train. My imagination kept going when I looked up to see the stations. I like the book.

The author presents something not only imaginative but differant for the reader to consider in a life after death experience. Do we really go straight to our destination or is there a stop over, a place in-between?

Creative, imaginative and obsorbing. One can emotionally feel the riding from station to station, and experience the frustration of there being no way out.
