THE EVERAFTER by Amy Huntley | Kirkus Reviews
I’m absolutely terrified of death and what comes after, but The Everafter makes it seem not so scary. To be a book about afterlife without a God of some sort felt a little like “What’s the point?? So then what the hell is the point of life and all that?! As it turned out, the concept was the best part.
Okay, this book creeped me out just a little bit, more towards the middle to the end, but I was definitely creeped out. But, man I can’t imagine thinking that all was waiting for me in the ‘afterlife’ was objects I had lost over here and brief moments with the scene where I had lost them I have a passive interest in theoretical physics, and so I especially enjoyed the quantum theory that was woven into the story.

Trust me, the story was flat, I really had a hard time finding the plot interesting, It was mixed together quickly with not a lot of detail, there were no emotions in me, the author did not explore the topic enough, it was a slow build, with secondary characters that never become fully fleshed out, The Everafter doesn’t pack the emotional punch of similar not-quite-dead titles Elsewhere or If I Stay did.
All she’s got is these rare moments that she lost something, and though they weren’t important in life, they’re so meaningful in death. As she captures these items and holds them, it takes Maddy back to the moment when she lost the object. Somehow the ending was very anti-climatic for me.
I really had a hard time finding the plot interesting. This ghost story kind of had me looking over my shoulder as I got the sense that someone was watching. Sie hat nur die Gewissheit tot zu sein.

Not going to spoil anything but what I loved about it was the ending. So you wonder, did she die at seventeen? You can feel Madison’s longing as she remembers what it’s like to be alive and how much she misses her parents, best friend and boyfriend.
