Smashwords book reviews by DeDe Smith

    What an interesting read! I don't think I have ever read a book like this one, but I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed the creative approach to the afterworld and I liked the very descriptive way that the author created every scene. I loved that the Wasteland was a lot like earth, except for no people and how lonely and miserable it can be even though it was beautiful. I especially enjoyed the concept that the things we do on earth affects others and that you will have to pay for your mistakes; but that you can find redemption if you truly want to. I also like that no matter what faith you are, you can find something you can relate to and it gives you a lot to consider. Daniel was a very believable character and although I don't agree with what he did, I came to like him as he truly repented of his mistakes. I do wish we could have delved more into Jonah's character. I came away not really sure what was going on with him and I would have liked to understand him more. It's not exactly an upbeat book, but I enjoyed it and I feel like it has me thinking about a few things differently than before. I encourage you to pick up this book with an open mind and you just might find some redeeming qualities!
