A boy named Seth drowns, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighborhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust, and completely abandoned. What's going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world

intriguing story, disappointing ending, well worth listening to because of the excellent reader

JCLChrisK Feb 06, 2014

Seth's story starts with his suicide, after he's given up hope that life holds anything more for him. Except death isn't all there is, because he wakes in a strange, empty, strangely familiar world. He's lost, weak, and hungry and faced with a new set of questions: What is this place and does he care enough to struggle to survive while he figures it all out?
-----
I didn't find all of the answers as fascinating and satisfying as they might have been (four stars, not five), but I did enough of them to make the book engagingly meaningful, and the journey to them was characterized by captivating plotting, pacing, characters, and world-building. As information emerges, Seth--and readers--are kept just off-balance enough to maintain momentum and build tension without ever feeling frustratingly adrift. A journey well worth taking.
