This is seriously one of the best books I have ever read. It's an intense book that will make you think a lot. Not a book to be casually read on your commute: it will make you miss your stop!

by Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review),
"Willis has developed an idea that bears all the authority of a genuine insight: disturbingly plausible, compelling, intensely moving, and ultimately uplifting."
by Chicago Tribune,
"Thoughtful, often fascinating....Willis makes Lander's journeys into the afterworld increasingly frightening and compelling."
"A true heir to John Donne, Kurt Gödel and Preston Sturges, a wit with a common touch who's read more great books, and makes better use of them in her work, than two or three lit professors put together."
by Edward Bryant, Locus,
"One might say the piece is a) deliberate, or b) slow, depending on the reader's sensibility. I get bored easily with turgid, never-ending prose that has no purpose. Passage mesmerized me for all 600 pages."
by Library Journal,
"The author...continues to expand her storytelling repertoire, achieving new dimensions in subtlety and irony while simultaneously constructing an unforgettable tale of courage and self-sacrifice. Highly recommended."
by School Library Journal,
"The book's size and its pace, which may seem glacial at times, should not deter readers....This novel will draw not only science fiction fans, but also those who have wondered about their own passage from this existence into the next."
Multi-award-winning author Willis delivers a story that examines one of the toughest issues of all: death. Part medical thriller, part literary exploration, Willis plunges readers into a bizarre and fascinating world.
