My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What happens in the afterlife? Do we get to see angels in full regalia or monsters that mete punishment and havoc? Are we reincarnated or do we find ourselves on a mere infinite void?
This first-person narrative takes us into a world of constant time travels without the scientific terminologies and contraptions, and of experiences and visions with great variations in the intensity or absence of feelings, emotions and normal human sensations.
On a normal day, I would have drastically given this piece a lower rating because I was more confused instead of enlightened along the way. It’s a good thing that the afterthought part saved me from my utter ignorance. On its literary value, this albeit-short yet lyrically poetic and symbolism-rich piece is still clearly worthy to grace one’s shelf.
