Hereafter is a contemporary, paranormal fantasy that uses dark humor (also sarcasm, innovative insults, and ironic observations) to reflect on the serious topic of how best to live, and includes numerous factoids (mostly from Jonah) on beliefs about an afterlife in different cultures and at different times. There's a bit of sexual tension but the author doesn't go overboard with sex scenes, keeping readers interested instead with tight dialogue and nuggets gleaned from her extensive research. Readers looking for a lighthearted book that still touches on some serious themes or for a novel with fantasy elements that doesn't feature a sexy vampire huntress or a paranormal detective agency should definitely give Hereafter a try.
HEREAFTER is smoothly written and a fast read, yet it leaves you thinking about what our ghostly legends are really trying to tell us. A frequent YA reader, I find this depth and adult perspective refreshing.
Jonah, a living 14-year-old boy obsessed with the afterlife, helps Irene unravel the mysteries hinted at by folklore and religion. She even gains a different understanding of going "into the light." I find Jonah to be a far more likeable character than self-absorbed Irene--I wanted to scream at her sometimes! She has a lot to learn. Her journey propels the book forward and keeps you wanting to find out what happens next.
I also own this book in the kindle edition as well.
So, the first thing I have to say is that Amy B. Martin was a fantastic choice for a narrator. The last audio book with a female narrator sounded too robotic. This one wasn't. At all. Which made it infinitely more enjoyable to me.
