Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife

Currently Reading: Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife (All You Need to Know to Chose the Right Heaven)

Author: E.E. King

Genre: Humour

This book is a rather entertaining, very funny, easy read worth an afternoon. The author takes you on an adventure to many different theologies with a sense of humour that keeps you engaged and intrigued. This book provides you with a very informative and accurate overview of a plethora of religions but does not take itself seriously.The main storyline did leave a bit to be desired.

The main storyline did leave a bit to be desired. It felt as though the author was trying to do too much with a storyline between the ‘reviews’ of the afterlives. Had it just contained the commentary and ‘review’ for each afterlife, I think I would have enjoyed it just as much.

Though a funny novel, it made me really consider a lot of religions without the bias of speaking with a disciple of that religion. It spawned some research and a couple hours reading into many religions of which I had never heard. And now, I can happily declare that I am a Scientologist! -No, I am not. I just have an awful sense of humour, but it is mine and I accept it…mostly.

Anyway, I would not suggest you rush out and buy this book. But if you are looking for some light reading to fill in the commercial breaks, the slow time at work, or just a quick, one-afternoon book that will stay with you, this one should be put on your list.
