Got a really nice customer review on Amazon of Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing to Do with God. Five stars out of five. (In fact, the book now has 20 Amazon customer reviews, and 17 are either four five stars.) Here’s what Anthony Reaves Jr. had to say:
Greta Christina’s book will change lives and challenge perspectives.
I purchased the audiobook tonight and listened to it. This is a magnificent and powerful book that is refreshing because of how honestly it deals with mortality and what we as human beings can do to make our awareness of it matter to how we live now. Greta Christina understands how both secular and religious individuals are capable of mishandling and trivializing what Shakespeare calls “that undiscovered country” of death, and what we can do to acknowledge it’s reality and finality without losing hope and the need to develop what our lives mean to us. Everyone, believer or not, will learn something from this book and it will be cherished for generations to come. Greta Christina has shown herself yet again to be one of the most intelligent, sympathetic and wise secular authors of her generation and she should be proud of what she’s accomplished here.
Thanks, Anthony! And if any of you have read Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing to Do with God, it’d be awesome if you’d post a review.
