I didn’t expect this book to impact me as profoundly as it did. It took the entire first section of this nearly 800-page work for me to really engage with the story ? and that’s unusual in my experience with Willis’ books; her stories normally hook me right away. Perhaps it’s because there’s been so much death (and death talk, estate planning, etc.) around me now, and because I wasn’t sure if I was rooting for the scientists in their work to discover a solely physical cause for the phenomenon of Near Death Experiences.
Coming to the end of this well-told story, I am reeling. PASSAGE has forced to the forefront some questions that have too long been on my back-burner. I’ve been struggling with my own beliefs for some time, and I appreciate Willis’ ending.
