Publisher's Summary

Two stories from SUM: Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman.
In 'Scales', read by Emily Blunt, God has lost control of the small parts that constitute Him: we are God's organs and by dividing and multiplying we are killing Him.
In 'Encore', read by Jack Davenport, your Creators could not care less as the details of your life unfold, but they reconstruct your life after you die so that the afterlife is a perfect replica of the original.
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.
