Publisher's Summary

Two stories from SUM: Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman.

In 'Great Expectations', read by Jack Davenport, you are able to determine your own hereafter, which has become privatized and computerized.

In 'Apostasy', read by Harriet Walter, you meet God, and to your surprise and delight she is like no god that humans have conceived.

In SUM, David Eagleman entertains 40 fictional possibilities of life beyond death. With wit and humanity, he asks the key questions about existence, hope, technology and love. These stories are full of big ideas and bold imagination.

This release is one of 20 pairings of readings from the audiobook, which assembles a stellar cast of narrators who bring the scenarios of SUM brilliantly alive: Gillian Anderson, Emily Blunt, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker, Jack Davenport, Lisa Dwan, David Eagleman, Noel Fielding, Kerry Fox, Stephen Fry, Clarke Peters, Lemn Sissay and Harriet Walter.
