Recently Released, My First Ten Days in Heaven by Robert Brown.
An Atheist Makes It To Heaven! Michael Greyson woke one morning feeling better than he had in years. Unfortunately, he soon learned he felt so good because he had died the day before. The upside to being dead, he made it to Heaven. The potential downside, he didn’t believe in Heaven, or God. This is a book about being dead. And if you can’t enjoy being dead, what good is it? My First Ten Days in Heaven describes Michael Greyson’s orientation to Heaven which normally takes one to two weeks. Everything is possible. Every desire met. All questions are answered. He ponders his good fortune while drinking Scotch and watching the sunrise in Newfoundland and discusses life and death strolling in a park with Sigmund Freud. He soon realizes Heaven might not be the right place for him. Readers of My First Ten Days in Heaven are those who enjoy pondering the meaning of life. Doesn’t matter what you believe about God. In the vein of A Man Named Ove and The Hundred Year Old man Who Climbed Out a Window and Disappeared, it is lighthearted, but also a reflective story prodding gently but clearly to face issues such as human rights, racial equality, life values, death-with-dignity and, of course, religion. After ten days, Mike makes his choice.
(Included are book club discussion questions!)
