Took me a long time to get around to this book — after all, what what do I know about the bardo? But this is such an interesting read, with a large cast of characters and a most intriguing setting. This is a book that looks at human’s attachment to this world and their fear of what comes after death. It’s a question all of us will have to ponder at some point in our lives. The writer’s conclusion is both sad and encouraging. An absorbing read.
