A broken heart has led sixteen-year-old Seth to suicide, but ending his life doesn't necessarily put an end to his problems. After drowning himself off the coast of his Pacific Northwest home, Seth wakes up across the world in the small English town where he spent his childhood.

To be returned to the scene of his greatest failure and his family's deepest grief surely indicates that he's in hell, and the charred, desolate landscape, without a soul in sight, is only further proof—in Seth's mind—that he has been sentenced to a doomed and painful afterlife. Even when he does finally encounter two other living people, he remains unconvinced by their explanations that his "death" was merely his waking up from a computer program and that the entire world—and essentially reality—has gone online.

This complex, genre-bending book opens with Seth's violent drowning death at sea, described in such spare but devastating detail that readers may feel themselves gasping for a breath as Seth draws his last. The tone remains quietly but deeply unsettling throughout the first half, with flashbacks to both Seth's childhood mistake and his more recent relationship with his boyfriend often providing more questions that answers in regards to Seth's present situation.

The thematic explorations of the nature of reality and the afterlife offer some heady discussion fodder, while the nail-biting tension and high-stakes action sequences make this an easy sell to the legions of dystopia fans as well.

He looks at the cover again. These italicized words bring many thoughts to mind: Seth is a protagonist who literally lives in a world made of words.

The one who has to be stopped over and over again. Seth is the story that is told… we all are the stories that we tell.

Regardless of whether said stories are true or fictional, they still have the power to produce meaning, to produce knowledge, and to produce selves. The narrative refuses to provide readers with direct answers, but this refusal, in due course, gives us the power to make what we want out of the story.

Feel free to read my other posts. I have always been a very creative person and find it relaxing to indulge in snail racing. I fancy studying docunments nicely.
