    1. Many people purport to glimpse heaven during a near death experience for Keith Chapman it is Qantoum he sees When he realises it is a real place he wants to know and about the mysterious statement Go now, we ll meet again under the black sun, at the end of a thousand years.My initial impressions after reading the first half of this book is that it would struggle to maintain the attention of many young adults at which this novel is aimed, it certainly struggled to maintain mine as an adult It is [...]

    2. I ve read this book before, but it was a long time ago and I think a lot of the details were lost on me at that age Although it claims to be a children s book I would probably disagree It s a weird one a sort of Night Vale esque surreal desert town combined with fear about the millennium, which I barely remember but have heard about, and an odd collection of characters It s a little odd though, in that it doesn t end with a conclusion to the events you THINK are at the centre of it, and it s a w [...]

    3. Quirky and unforgettable A man has an accident and while unconscious has an out of body experience When he recovers he sets out to find the place for real Full of poetic imagination the land he travels to could be an afterlife, but is not like any afterlife you have read about before The characters he encounters draw him into a bizarre adventure I d say the novel is slow to get going, and with my writer hat on I d say the early part could have been streamlined a lot Jan Mark would probably tell [...]

    4. A superb and haunting book The pace is deliberately slow the sense is of a place where people wash up and wait where nothing happens but something always seems on the verge of happening Amazingly atmospheric one of the best books I have ever read.

    5. Wow As it said on the blurb, this book really was a delightful read After an unsure, uneasy start, new little interesting features pop up Great amount of science fiction from 2 thirds in, right about my style

    6. Totally weird story line with barely any ending or closure Still evoked a concept of time and exploration that really inspired me as a younger reader Very mature ideas for a supposedly young book Would recommend to anyone looking for something off the beaten path
