    In an attempt to find out, Mary Roach brings her tireless curiosity to bear on an array of contemporary and historical soul-searchers: scientists, schemers, engineers, mediums, all trying to prove (or disprove) that life goes on after we die. She begins the journey in rural India with a reincarnation researcher and ends up in a University of Virginia operating room where cardiologists have installed equipment near the ceiling to study out-of-body near-death experiences.

    Overall

    To preface this, let me say I have never written a review of anything before, but I feel compelled to do so now. I love Mary Roach's writing style and sense of humor! "Stiff," has been a favorite read, so I was thrilled to see other works by her available on Audible. Anxious for, what I thought would be an enjoyable experience, turned out to be torture. I am an easy-going person who normally can persevere until the end, but after the first two chapters, I couldn't take it any longer. The narrator ruined the experience - more eloquently described by previous reviewers - in such a horrendous way that I will waste this book credit. I will, however, download the book onto my Kindle and enjoy it, as I recommend you do, in the written form.
