I found the description of heaven really creepy and fascinating, and I loved that Susie (and other recently dead people) were still so attached to their lives and yet utterly separated in time and being. I read it semi-accidentally - it had been very hyped here as OMG GRUESOME! which rather put me off, and I happened to pick it up one day in a bookshop while waiting for my girlfriend and really liked the prose, so I bought it. I would very much have liked this kind of book as a teenager, I think!

Yeah, I liked that, too.
