Quick Review::

Very clever novel by Kevin Brockmeier, this slightly comforting story is split into two parts. We follow the inhabitants of 'the city' a place people go when they die and also the story of a young traveller named Laura Byrd we quickly see these two woven together as we discover just how much Laura is impacting on the city and its inhabitants. Its a good novel but the conclusion leaves you wanting more.........
