Blurb: Abdul kills himself and Jenny… he didn’t mean to.
Their deaths were the result of a car crash. He had been rushing to meet his date. His motorbike collided with her Mum’s red car and Jenny a little six year old girl died. He didn’t know she was there. It was an accident.
Their souls meet in the space between their immediate deaths and the start of their afterlives.
Imagine dying and meeting Azrael, the Angel of Death. What happens in that place? What happens when you are forced to submit to your death?
Review: I finished the book, it was very short so, there’s that. I don’t really know how to start this review off.
I would start off reading the chapter, skim through it because they would start talking to a voice in their head. Now, don’t get me wrong, while I can understand the voice thing, it seemed like Abdul had an actual problem with it, getting into full out arguments with his voice.
I always tell people not to worry about talking to yourself, you only need to worry if you start arguing with yourself.
Also, the title could be different. I mean, it’s correct, it is The Afterlife of Abdul but it’s also the afterlife of Jenny and the life of the mother.
Then I want to shake my Kindle when the mom made the brilliant decision to go pick up her six year old when she was drunk and then made the even more brilliant decision to not strap her six year old into the car seat.
Then there’s the ending. That last chapter just ended up feeling like the religion was being shoved down my throat. Again, don’t get me wrong, I’m a Christian, I’m saved and I believe in Heaven and Hell and all that but I also believe in allowing others to believe in what they believe in. If I try to harp on them about my beliefs, I’m going to end up pushing people away. I don’t really think that last chapter was necessary.
I really don’t think I would recommend.
Thank you for reading my review.
