Publisher's Summary

Neville Canton is about as average as any man can be. He has a mediocre job, a pleasant wife, and an ongoing feud with his sister.

He thought he was destined for great things in life, but unfortunately never got a real shot. Once all the excuses dried up the cancer finished the job.

Now trapped in a cloud between the living and the dead, he must find his way to the afterlife.

With the help of a spiritual guide, he navigates through seven challenges; seven tasks to sever his final connections to the mortal world.

If he fails, he forfeits his eternity and the consequences may be worse than death.

    Story
    "Odd but good"

    I enjoyed this but I'm not sure why. The narration was good and brought out the different characters nicely. The story I found just a little confusing. Perhaps I would have done better to listen while I wasn't driving.

    I had to listen to the end to find out what happened and I'm glad I did.

    But I'm still feeling a little confused.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Amazing"

    I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.


    This was a brilliant novel, following a man (Neville) after his death and his attempts to cut his ties with his life and move on to the afterlife. I loved the premise of this novel, the writing, the characterisation, everything. It was extremely well written and I especially loved the scenes between Neville and his wife. In the blurb they're described as average and pleasant, but you could really feel the love between them and the heartbreak when Neville had to chose to let her go in order to move on. I loved the journey that Neville travelled in this book and I thought that the ending really befitted the plot.

    Story
    "Short and Sweet."

    Loved the premise. The story progresses at a very rapid pace due to the length of it and what had conspired in the length of time. It didn't feel rushed though. Overall I enjoyed the performance Tait gave, but it did feel a bit stiff at times.

    Story
    "Very esoteric"

    This story is about an after death experience and the soul works to leave life behind and move on to the afterlife. It's vivid, creative and strange. It's very creative and makes some interesting points about letting go of attachments that are holding you back, but I couldn't get into it, I kept wondering what the point was.

    The narration is well done, good character voices and a nice flow to it.

    This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

    "Well performed book"

    The story is unique and not my normal taste. Even so, it was well written and descriptive. The narrator did a great job bringing this story to life and had me in tears at some points. This afterlife adventure was totally worth the credit!

    Story
    "For fans of Drew Magary's The Hike"

    When Neville Canton died he doesn't go to heaven or hell he goes somewhere else... into a strange purgatory that shall determine his ultimate fate. Guided by a grey old man he relives various points in his life, analysis his life - how he was and how he got to where he is. Through all this he must fight to determine his fate.

    It's interesting to note that even though Canton is reliving previous memories, they are all told in present tense, as they are happening now - not happening in the past. These are not memories he is remembering, but something he is reliving.

    This book reminded me of Drew Magary's The Hike (although I didn't really like that book but I enjoyed this one), in that is is a man reviewing a slightly strange and twisted version of his life, going through key moments and fears, to determine his fate. It is a whole lot less 'fever dream' than The Hike, with much (but not all) of the strange supernatural elements lessened.
    It in an interesting analysis of a man and how the choices made can take you places not foreseen.

    Narration by Kyle Tait is good. He provides a variety of voices, separating each character out distinctly. This makes it very easy to follow what is going on and who is talking. He is well paced and clear, easy to listening to. There were no obvious flaws (although one character voice - the old man - was a bit grating). Very much an enjoyable piece of narration.

    "Just okay..."

    Interesting concept with some relatable moments, though, a bit depressing. The narration was okay but it didnt seem like the voice matched the character.

    Story
    "A Valuable Lesson"

    When I was listening to this book I was reminded of that old and familiar saying: 'you can't take it with you'. And as I listened I thought perhaps it should be amended to include 'and you probably wouldn't want to if you could'. Even though as a Christian this isn't an interpretation of the afterlife with which I am very familiar, I still related to the story for that reason/lesson.

    The story moves at a brisk pace. I was able to finish it in one sitting.

    This was the first time I heard narrator Kyle Tait do fiction. His old man voice and laugh is particularly outstanding and is not something I am likely to forget anytime soon.

    "Emotional story"
    Any additional comments?

    Great story, the writer did well with capturing events that will provoke feelings, but
    to me the narration was a bit deadpan and didn't match the story well.
