The book is a story of a group of people who want to explore what it’s death exactly, so they started experiment under the supervision of the president of the state who became interested in the subject after have lived a near death experience,The group of scientist, start the journey and they arrived finally to discover the death-land. The book tells stories about the changes happened in the life of the members of the group what they have learned and the changes affected the whole world after the exploration of the death-land and its impact.
Honestly, I didn’t like the book, it wasn’t impressive, he made it so long.
That were a lot of irrelevant events and information, the science fiction incorporation weren’t successful, because what he was talking about, wasn’t even science.
He made the death world so materialistic, well, I can say that maybe he wants us to conclude that what it’s meant to be hidden from us, we should keep it hidden.
I can extract two or three main ideas, that drew my attention:
1- people always make things wrong.As soon as people get into the after death land, they start fighting, making commerce, make it a place of profit, and so one. like if the human nature was to ruin everything, even the most sacred things such as death.
2- Knowledge is good in general, but sometimes we should keep hidden, what it’s supposed to be hidden. life was technically stoped after that the people knew the secret of reincarnation cycle. people became lazy, and they took everything like destiny, they believed that this was their fate, and they gave up on life.
3- After all, all the human beings are alike, it’s revealed from the different mythology presenting the same essences of ideas, the core of all religions and philosophies is the same, it should be something true that the ancient had known it, and we are not able to see it, because of the lifestyle we created.
