Finished Mary Roach’s Spook. For me, it wasn’t as good as Stiff because the subject matter wasn’t as compelling. Yes, I suppose I prefer the corpse to the soul. The book is subtitled “Science Tackles the Afterlife.” My problem is that there is very little science to be had in the book. Of course, when dealing with proving that there is an afterlife and therefore a soul, not much real science has been done. And that’s a point that Roach makes point in a sideways kind of way. Still, a firm two or three paragraphs about scientific method would have been nice. Roach comes to no definitive answers, and neither has ‘science,’ but she does provide a nice history of mediumship, NDEs, and technology’s involvement in detecting the soul. All told in Roach’s light, witty style. It’s due to Roach that I even picked up this book. So book #17 in the bag.
