Dear Internetians,

Today I finished Proof of Heaven, written by extremely smart doctor human Eben Alexander.  

This book is written from the perspective of a genius human who doesn’t believe in heaven at first, but, after experiencing comatose for 7 days, becomes a complete believer in Heaven and all its toppings. The book has really thought-provoking subject matter that made me feel like sentimentally observing the night sky in all its magnificence while discussing existential life questions with my open-minded peers over a glass of red wine. 

At times, though, the author’s extreme smartness made me feel slightly incompetent and my brain was sad because of its comparatively minimal ability to think.

Overall, it was an extremely interesting book that took me only a few days to read because I was intrigued by the storyline. It has a hopeful tone, which is nice. 
I felt really educated reading it in a café, and I was actually actively hoping that some cute guy would notice my profound book choice and be impressed enough to start up conversation, so that’s always a plus. No one wants to read a book that makes them feel embarrassed to be in public places (I’m looking at you, Fifty Shades of Grey middle-aged female fan club).
In conclusion, I rate Proof of Heaven 9 out of 10.  The one point lost is for making my brain feel inadequate.
