Is there life after death? She examines a host of topics under her conceptual umbrella looking at reincarnation the hunt for the seat of the soul the notion that the soul weighs 21 grams ectoplasm the effectiveness of mediums including her stint in medium school she outgrew small but was not yet advanced enough for large school?

You and everyone else apparently Many people believe in some sort of continuation be it an afterlife reincarnation or maybe that your soul sticks around and haunts old abandoned mansions? Unfortunately no one really knows for sure With Spook Mary Roach isn’t going to provide you with a concrete answer but rather an exploration of several beliefs and possibilitiesI didn’t enjoy this one nearly as much as Stiff It’s not to say it’s a poorly written book I just found my interest waning at certain points That being said there are some interesting chapters detailing EVP electronic voice phenomenon reincarnation ectoplasm and the ongoing search for the human soul but they felt long winded and repetitive With Stiff Roach’s research is scientific and factual whereas with Spook it’s a lot of interviews with folks who are speaking about belief systems and faith I’m not trying to
