Final Book Review Heaven and Hell By Kenneth Zeigler
Heaven and Hell
A story lets us safely get real or surreal about those bigger issues like death without having to stare it down head-on. Eric by Terry Pratchett. And then suddenly, one day celebrity do-gooder Sampson Cooper is at the table next to her. In my favorite work by C. Lewis, Hell is the ultimate bureaucracy—or sorry, the Lowerarchy. Screwtape is quick to offer advice, but also to chastise his nephew and remind him of what Hell has in store for him should he fail—consumption of his soul by the other demons.
Tellingly, most recent afterlife fiction sidesteps God entirely. The inventing ended up being the best part. Here are some other works of afterlife fiction, all of which enjoy playful but convincing backdrops to their otherworldly tales. The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier In an accommodating but bland city, the deceased continue to exist, but only as long as someone still alive remembers them. Back on midst-century Earth, things are going dangerously wrong: not least, the rampant spread of genetically modified viruses.
Title: Heaven and Hell. Publisher: Quercus Publishing Publication date: September first edition: Paperback: pages. The extreme hardship and danger of the journey is of little consequence to him — he has already resolved to join his friend in death. But once in the town he immerses himself in the stories and lives of its inhabitants, and decides that he cannot be with his friend just yet. Set at the turn of the twentieth century, Heaven and Hell is a perfectly formed, vivid and timeless story, lyrical in style, and as intense a reading experience as the forces of the Icelandic landscape themselves. An outstandingly moving novel. Why did I read this book: One day, this book showed up at my door, unsolicited and unexpected.
