Werber is the one from the Great Initiated. Htanatonautes I believe in his Paradise. It’s so well-prescripted, considered and absolute.
Nov 01, Jesslivraddict rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sep 28, Adriananas rated it it was ok Shelves: DNF That’s it, I give up on this book For the excitement and awesomeness I was expecting from a book about life after death, this is unbelievably boring.
Everything is written so clinically, so devoid of enthusiasm.
The author is merely reporting events and there is little attempt to fascinate the reader. Not to mention the depressing characters. The main character, Michael, is so passive and spiritless, I found it hard to keep reading the story through his eyes.
You want to root for characters, not want to kill them. Unless the book wants you to hate its characters and I don’t think this was the case.
Les Thanatonautes | Revolvy
But mainly, the biggest problem is this book’s theme. It’s obviously trying to take a philosophical stance on death, life and god; it hits us with passages from different religion’s thanatonautew books; Michael repeatedly wonders about the lws of intruding in the realm of the dead etc. And yet, all this talk about death felt so bland and uninspired.
It was so tedious, really. So much death and not one sentiment was triggered in my body. To be fair, I really don’t think I am part of this book’s target audience. So, I don’t think it’s a bad book, it’s just not for me. I like inspiring books and this wasn’t. Jun 27, Artem Huletski rated it it was ok. I still have mixed feelings about this book. The beginning was awesome and kept me going, I almost swallowed every chapter but starting from the middle of it I was more and more bored.
The idea had potential but got lost somewhere by the author, this lively spark simply disappeared so I had to force myself sometimes to finish. Jan 28, Dimitar Stefanov rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

What is it, how does it work exactly, what happens after that, can we escape from it… Almost all religions and spiritual teachings speak of life after death, in Heaven or Hell of the particular religionor again on our Earth but in a different body, learning yet another lesson in the circle of reincarnations allotted to everyone. Confirmed materialists and atheists strongly deny the possibility of a world beyond the grave. And maybe the truth is out there, somewhere in the middle… Well, in his book Bernard Werber tries to present his point of view.
Police file Request for personal data records Family: White tunnels, meeting friends who have died, dazzling light. But what happens when the President of a whole country goes through such an experience? It is most logical that he should encourage research in this field. And there is no lack of eager scientists. That is how they set out to explore the Continent of the Dead. It may sound absurd, but a few centuries ago, it sounded just as absurd that there existed a continent east of Indonesia.
Well, yes, but there was a real continent — with plains, trees, animals, aborigines! To talk about the Australian lands was as strange as to look for the continent of death now. The analogy with Australia is even more complete, because the pioneers here are also prisoners, but the stakes are incredibly higher. In the beginning, as in every experiment, the death toll is high, but soon come the first successes. After entering a comatose condition artificially which is the easier part of the taskthe volunteer must keep his connection with our world and at the same time investigate the Continent of Death in as much detail as possible.
Little by little, the map of this mysterious place starts growing. Just as naturally, the prisoners give way to inquisitive people with a free spirit, and successes are quick to follow. Revealing the secrets of death inevitably impacts people’s life on Earth. Passing across seven areas blue: The trial determines its reincarnation or leaving the wheel. If one has heaped up bad karma, he makes it up with his next life. He has a much harder start than people who have lived righteously.
Well, with that knowledge, interesting times come to Earth. People become better, yet not because this is their way but because of petty selfishness. Suicides become the norm for those who aren’t pleased with their present state of life. And why wouldn’t they, knowing that what lies in store is the inevitable reincarnation in a new, better and different life. Mankind loses its will to live, evolve, advance. It merely goes with the tide, not living, but semivegetating.
The dessert in the book is, then, the moment that I believe has everyone excited by this point. What happens if you still have lessons to learn and lives to live? What is beyond the trial in the seventh area, beyond death? Still, in order to ask the right question, you must first know the larger part of the answer. View all 3 comments. Mar 23, Mouse rated it it was amazing Shelves: I read that book when I was in high-school and it really did something to me; it’s a clever and original novel about the discovery of the last land unknown to mean, Death.
It’s about discovery and passion, life and death and love and friendship, it’s mythical and magical, it’s moving and funny. And when I said it was ‘clever’, Bernard Werber’s novels always are; he has a knack for teaching you things without your really noticing it.
Here the lesson is about world’s religions and myths.
The ficti I read that book when I was in high-school and it really did something to me; it’s a clever and original novel about the discovery of the last land unknown thanatonautss mean, Death. The fiction part of the story is cut by real passages and tidbits about thanagonautes and legends from all over the world.
It makes the story so much more intense somehow The good news is that Les Thanatonautes is but the first novel of a long series so when you come to the ending, don’t be too sad, there are many more stories to come. View all 4 comments. Sep 02, Claire rated it liked it.

This should be an anime: Mar 02, betelgeuse rated it really liked it. Niekam nebekildavo minties vogti. This book is about scientists who succeed in sending a human to the world between the earth our world and the heaven to the gods.
The word thanatonautes means people who go to the zone of the dead. Succeeding the duty of a thanatonautes is very hard because when they are sent to the thanatonautss, there is a force that pulls them to heaven which makes them not want to go back to earth.
A thanatonautes has to win this seduction and come back to earth to tell the scientists about what he saw.
