SPOOK Science Tackles the Afterlife

by | Read by Bernadette Quigley

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Mary Roach looks into death's mysteries but doesn't solve any of them. However, this hilarious account of her research into reincarnation, the soul, mediums, telepathy, and near-death experiences creates pleasant entertainment. Reader Bernadette Quigley captures the fun of the multicultural characters interviewed for the book, using spoof accents of Indian, Yiddish, French, and British interviewees. When asked what kind of cheese is in the soufflé, the snobby English waiter, as portrayed by Quigley, answers, "Sliced." Quigley varies the pitch, volume, and speed of her voice, sometimes even dropping to a whisper. Such clever inflections confirm Quigley's involvement in a dark expedition that seems to go nowhere, but which keeps itself interesting with its side trips.
