Jude’s life is nothing special. It seems like every day is just a repeat of the last one, until one day, he meets a woman and can suddenly see into her past — revealing that he is actually in Purgatory for suicides. Now that he’s awake, he and the legendary Ernest Hemingway are on the path to change things in the afterlife for the better. Of course, that might not sit very well with the bigwigs down below or up above. Can just a few people change the course of billions of souls?
This book is about Jude, a man that lives a very repetitive life that discovers that he was actually in a purgatory for suicides.
The characters were okay but felt plain. Jude was too simple, he didn’t do much because he didn’t know what was going on and Ernest Hemingway was there.
There were some interesting plot points but the story didn’t blow my mind like I think it was supposed to.
I’m just not going to continue on with the series.
Rating: 2 stars
