"What happens when we die? Does the light just go out and that's that-- the million-year nap? Or will some part of my personality, my me-ness persist? What will that feel like? What will I do all day? Is there a place to plug in my laptop?" In an attempt to find out, Mary Roach brings her tireless curiosity to bear on an array of contemporary and historical soul-searchers: scientists, schemers, engineers, mediums, all trying to prove (or disprove) that life goes on after we die. She begins the journey in rural India with a reincarnation researcher and ends up in a University of Virginia operating room where cardiologists have installed equipment near the ceiling to study out-of-body near-death experiences. Along the way, she enrolls in an English medium school, gets electromagnetically haunted at a university in Ontario, and visits a Duke University professor with a plan to weigh the consciousness of a leech. Her historical wanderings unearth soul-seeking philosophers who rummaged through cadavers and calves' heads, a North Carolina lawsuit that established legal precedence for ghosts, and the last surviving sample of "ectoplasm" in a Cambridge University archive" -- publisher's web site.… (mere)

A little flippant - just really silly. ( )

this book was interesting, in a pop science way, but ultimately not interesting enough to finish.
  kickthebeat | Nov 1, 2020 |
Roach employs an obnoxiously condescending tone throughout most of the book (as if her private title is Dumbasses: People Who Believe in Life After Death), but the subject matter and considerable research is very interesting. If you would like to start reading her work, I would suggest Stiff or Bonk over Spook. ( )

Just couldn't get through this - way too talky, way too twee and clever. Narrator did way too many cute voices and accents. Not enough cool information. Stopped listening after the 4th disc. ( )

This one didn't grab me the way her other books have, though certainly I've found myself retaining a lot of the info in here. I think that perhaps it's just the nature of the topic-- there's so much quackery and superstition and non-science that it felt a little....soft at times. ( )

Roach ranges far and wide in "Spook," traveling to India to look into reincarnation and England to take a course in how to be a medium. She is a skeptic, but comes to some surprising conclusions in "Spook."
