Staff Reviews

Meet Milo, a human soul who's lived nearly 10,000 lives, and has 5 more chances to get it right before he's forced to walk the metaphorical plank into Nothingness. Meet Suzie, aka Death, who is sick of being Death, and would rather quit her job and open up a candle shop. Milo and Suzie are in love. Milo is considered a great soul, a wise soul, a soul who has been around the block a time or two... or ten thousand. Milo isn't nearly as interested in Perfection—his supposed goal— as he is with Suzie and the time in-between lives he gets to spend with her. In a book where deaths outnumber the page count, I was surprised to find quirky being one of my first ways of describing Poore's work. Reincarnation Blues achieves capital p Perfection. — Hanna Yost
