Barbara Rosenblat is exactly the right narrator for Laurel Schmidt's seriocomic vision of the afterlife. Frances Beacon, bestselling author of SEX, DRUGS, AND SOCIAL SECURITY, finds herself dead at age 65. Rosenblat is wonderful at conveying Frances's initial confusion and then disbelief at finding herself in some kind of way station between life and death. She excels at Frances's snarky attitude as she tries to make sense of what's happening. As Frances's past lives are revealed and she continues to resist retraining at the University of the Afterlife, where she's expected to learn how to be dead, Rosenblat enters into each scene with enthusiasm, sometimes making laugh-out-loud observations, sometimes tugging at one's heartstrings. Overall, an entertaining listening experience performed by an outstanding narrator. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
