The opening and closing stories from SUM: Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman.
'SUM', read by Stephen Fry, posits an afterlife in which you relive all your experiences.
'Reversal', read by Gillian Anderson, denies an afterlife but offers an experience where everything that happened in your life happens again, but backward.
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.
