A Joyful Noise
Everybody knows what the afterlife is supposed to be like- sitting on clouds, playing harps, reunited with loved ones. But what if it's not? What if there were suddenly irrefutable proof that the afterlife is hardly heaven and actually far worse than any religion's hell? What if instead of eternal bliss we'll someday find ourselves, regardless of faith or good works, trapped in a maddening existence of darkness and solitude, our senses, save our anguished thoughts, gone. In fact, some near death experiences have revealed just such a terrifying isolation. What if this were our afterlife - forever?
The premise of A Joyful Noise is that one man, through an accidental communication with the dead, finds proof of such an afterlife. How he, and ultimately the world, must deal with this horrifying prospect will inspire your nightmares as you ponder 'what if'?
