    Story
    (240)

    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.

    What disappointed you about Spook?

    The book is mildly interesting, but the narrator ruined it for me. When she is reading in her natural voice, she reads well. But when she tries to inject an accent, or (worse yet) tries to sound as if she is a scientific professional, it’s so over-the-top, it ruins the book.


    What was most disappointing about Mary Roach’s story?

    Very little current information... this book dwells on 19th century experiments.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bernadette Quigley’s performances?

    No
