I have a confession to make; I’ve committed every book lover’s worst sins with this book. Eragon by Christopher Paolini is my most loved and most read book to date, and it has maintained its number one spot in my book-loving heart for almost a decade.
The idea has been proposed in a science-fiction book Anomaly (The Soul Prophecies) by Caitlin Lynagh.
The book follows a business student (and keen science enthusiast) as he finds his path in life following the death of his childhood sweetheart. The book discusses the afterlife through science – but in a way that probes genuine scientific questions rather than pseudo-science – with no mention of God.

The world building and futuristic setting are done extremely well too, my mind had no problems believing in Randolph Lalonde’s world.
