After Death

After Death... - Bentley Little, Steve Cameron, William Meikle, James S. Dorr, Steve Rasnic Tem, Simon Clark, Joe McKinney, John Langan, Lisa Morton, Christine Morgan, John M. Floyd, Josh Rountree, Robert B. Marcus Jr., Jonathan Shipley, Brad C. Hodson, David Tallerman, John Palisano, Jac What were the main relationships explored in this book? If someone commits suicide, society's first reaction is that the person was selfish. There is blame and in the case where death comes naturally no matter how old the person is, the sadness is still there. In some ways, this book is a reaction of how the people around us might respond to our deaths, and then there are the reactions our own beings might have when we pass on. Truly gripping, that's the best way I can describe this book.

3 things I liked about the book … The illustrations for each story - believe it or not, each image was different and fitted the story perfectly. This must have been a lot of work. The formatting - The headers, italics and paragraphs were well laid out and easy to read. Although different, the stories all stayed on subject and never drifted away from the topic of death.

Does the book drag? Not at all. Scenes are easy to follow, and all stories have interesting and engaging plots. I would have liked it if some stories were longer because they seemed to rush to the ending. Definitely a must read.
