Sum: Tales From The Afterlives

Sum: Tales From The Afterlives - David Eagleman In this short and original work David Eagleman presents a series of possible versions of the afterlife, each no more than a few pages long.
There are afterlives in which God is a disappointment to his or her creation, afterlives in which administrative errors have crept into the system, and afterlives in which we discover that we have completely misunderstood our purpose here on earth.

In the course of this highly readable set of speculations David Eagleman smuggles in all sorts of pithy observations about the human condition, making this much more than just a piece of whimsy. Despite their brevity,thefrefore, these accounts of possible heavens and hells are both witty and highly thought-provoking.
