So even though it isn’t the greatest book ever, Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin is a fairly good read. It is not as creepy and macabre as Gigi made it seem, no offense Gigi, but it doesn’t really seem like you gave the book a chance. OK so yes the conditions are kinda… odd. Heading to some weird place full of dead people who are reverse aging, but that is in no way the central point of the book and is NOT as morbid as it seems. Sorry but I just don’t get why people see something about death and automatically assume it is creepy or morbid, yes death is a somewhat morbid concept but it is a fact of life and this book is more about the healing process. The main character Liz is really upset about her death, understandable. I mean you just DIED, so she is thinking about how she won’t be able to do so many things just because of one little, avoidable accident and this book is about the process of healing she goes through as she watches her family on Earth try to cope. Although I don’t believe in this afterlife, I’m a definitely Christian who believes in Heaven, I didn’t feel offended by this “suggestion” that there is something other than Heaven, and if you do get offended by that kind of thing (and I mean no offence by this) come on, it’s just a book. Overall I liked it, may reread it, but not in my top 100. So if you’re looking for an interesting read or are stuck to find a good book pick this one up, and please pay no attention to the ominous warning Gigi left you with. It seems how she perceived what seems to be just the first few chapters is way off base. (in my opinion) Also just a safety note here, please watch for bikes when driving a car and vise-versa, plus always wear your helmet, this book reminded me how many deaths could be avoided by these simple things. Keep safe and keep reading.
