Life After Life

Life After Life was recommended when I added McCorkle’s newest book, Hieroglyphics, to my wish list. So, I got Life After Life from the library. It’s the story of an assisted living facility and the residents and caregivers.One in particular, a social worker named Joanna, chronicles the lives of residents (and non-residents before) when they pass. It’s told in alternating threes – a chapter about a character, then a journal entry about a recent individual who has died, and then a snippet from the perspective of the dead person. It’s an interesting read, but wasn’t a favorite. I wish I had known that both this book and my last read (The Book of Summer) had only garnered three and a half stars on Amazon, as my usual threshold is four. And, these two selections confirmed that good impulse.
