I loved his references to some of the great irreverent artists, cult favorites, which makes the experience more personal. It's well worth reading!
Foster winds up in a purgatory like place called Suicide Station. It's where he has to get used to death before he's shipped off to his final, erm, well resting place doesn't sound right and final destination is a film series, so we'll just go with final spot on the map.
After death's minion dumps Foster off in purgatory, he meets Candy. Candy's job is to get him acclimated before the spot on the map thing can happen. Candy likes what she sees and decides to break the rules for the death marked comedian.
After the initial meeting with Candy, Foster meets his roommate David David, pothead extraordinaire. Some dinner, some flirting, some ganja, some speculation and then Foster is back in his life again.
Wait...what? He's living again?
Yep, apparently Foster went and found himself a little loophole and wouldn't you know it? The end comes up the same way, with some minor variations when he returns to the Station.
Going much further than that would spoil things and the odd little journey of Foster Donovan really deserves better than that.
Foster is in an infinite cycle of what if’s. He is torn between the afterlife and the ability to change things before he enters it. He is on a journey that not many get to take and most would not want. The love he encounters along the way has caught him off guard as well. He begins to travel down the road to “maybe I could change this outcome.” During this, there are questions and answers that keep him confused. Mr. Wallen weaves a story that will make you think and ponder many things. Action packed, emotionally charged, and mind altering. Thank you Jack.
I read this book on the plane when I went on vacation recently and it was the PERFECT vacation book for me! It's a steady, easy read that kept me occupied for the entire flight!
Death is one of those things that you're either terrified of or you've made your peace with. Me, I'm in the first camp, but this book really intrigued me. I love the idea of stations for those who have taken their own lives. You process everything, see if you can figure out where you went wrong, and move on to your final destination. Kinda makes me wonder if there are stations in all aspects of the afterlife... wouldn't that be cool?
Life is very rarely what you expect it to be, so why should the afterlife be any different? Foster Donovan definitely doesn't get what he expects, right down to his stoner roommate and his delectable intake counselor Candy. Plot twist after plot twist happens, and you can't decide whether to root for Foster to get back to the land of the living, or to just make his peace and stay where he is.
I really loved this novel! The pace is fast but manageable, the dialogue is delightful, and the characters are well-developed and interesting. I would love a sequel to this one!
