Out of Body, by Christopher John Chater (Review)

22 year old Harley lost his parents in a car crash when he was 12, a crash that changed his life in more ways than one. We join Harley 10 years later at university as he searches for answers regarding the afterlife and the white light he saw on the night of the crash.

Death is a key theme and helps to immediately hook the reader from the start- ‘I died that day. Twice.’ Harley’s need to uncover the truth about the afterlife leads to drama and the destruction of the life he has built for himself. His quirky style of humour had me in stitches at times and made him a rather likable character. When he succeeded in his trials, I felt as though I’d shared in that success. The same applies to Harley’s failings.

Out of Body is a dark, gripping read that talks in depth about astral projection, a unique ability whereby someone can leave their own body and have their spirit travel in the astral realm. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment and would gladly read this book again and again.

 

My rating: 5 stars.

I would recommend this to lovers of dark fantasy and thrillers.
