Don’t Miss Book One in Dan Sofer’s Dry Bones Society Series–An Unexpected Afterlife!
An Unexpected Afterlife is an intriguing satire that takes place in Israel, during the end times.
Moshe Karlin was shocked when he woke up in a cemetery, nude. He assumed that he was the unlucky victim of a prank. Moshe had no idea that he’s been dead for two years. That important tidbit of information would be made clear, though, by his wife’s frantic screaming, and her new lover, kicking Moshe out of his own home. The afterlife was not what Moshe thought it would be, not even close. There were no deceased relatives to welcome him, or choirs of angels singing praises, or anything that resembled indescribable beauty and happiness. And just when Moshe found work and a place to live in his bleak new afterlife, he was betrayed.
When Moshe discovered that he wasn’t the only newly resurrected person struggling in Israel his relief was palpable. The unique group of people looked to Moshe for direction. He was used to being a leader, so Moshe gathered his new group of friends and came up with a plan. This new strategy would not only allow the new lifers to survive among the living but also to thrive.
Once I got over the initial shock of Moshe’s miserable new afterlife, I was able to settle in and enjoy the many twists and turns of this unique novel. An Unexpected Afterlife is a well-written and captivating satire. Although, I was not familiar with many of the Jewish customs, I was able to follow along well enough.
Thank you, Dan Sofer, for my complimentary review copy.
