SUMMARY: The After Death Afterlife of Ronald Foster’ is the dramatic story of life after death for a man who doesn’t know he’s dead. Ronald gives a first hand account and tells how he’s ensnared by greed, anger, lust, envy and worse; how he finally discovers that he’s passed from life to death.
Ultimately, he understands that he’s used up his last chance. The question is: does he deserve to survive?
BACK STORY: “I like to take intriguing and unusual ideas and spin them into stories with an edge. For me, most fascinating was the chance to explore some compelling human questions, not least: is there an unavoidable bet, a wager we all have to make about what lies beyond human life? Imagine what it would be like to have all your life memories vanish, to barely remember your name. Frightening! But that’s what happens to Ronald in ‘The After Death Afterlife of Ronald Foster’. In a sense, he’s given a clean slate, yet he doesn’t see it that way. He lets himself be ruled by lust, anger and greed in a world in which normality has been turned on its head and stamped on. Many people don’t believe in life after life – in any kind of afterlife, after death, or heaven and hell – but many do. Death and dying are often taboo subjects, yet what happens next is something that faces everyone. As I said, it was fascinating to explore some compelling human questions. ‘The After Death Afterlife of Ronald Foster’ offers an enthralling possibility. I wonder how I’d react to Ronald’s situation. I wonder how you would.
WHY SOMEONE WOULD WANT TO READ IT?: Life is fundamentally about survival, yet we always want more. What if death too needs to be survived? What if you die but don’t know you’re dead? What if you carry on as if you’re alive?
What if someone is out to get you?
Imagine a desperate world of delusion and double-dealing. Add in three powerful women who will not be denied. Pour on treachery, intrigue and violence.
This is the dramatic after death world of Ronald Foster. The question is: does he deserve to survive?
“Page turner! Every short chapter ends with an irresistible hook as the story unfolds of Ronald and the three women in his afterlife. I never knew who to trust; or who to route for! Or could guess what happens next, as heaven and earth seem to come together in the after death.”
“The author Robert Turvil has an obvious love for words from the care taken throughout the book. I read a lot, and never have I stopped so often to enjoy a sentence again. With each passing chapter, I giggled, shrieked, and hide behind the cover! The book is fast paced, fun and surprising. I thoroughly recommend this read. More please, Robert.”
‘Very entertaining. Plenty of strong characters with intriguing views on life and death, and life after death. The story is fast paced and I wanted to know what happens next. Stands out from crowd. Recommended.’
‘This is a very unusual book, one I never thought I would like, after all its a difficult concept for some people to consider. Right from page one you are drawn into this book, and the lead character, you both despise him, and within a few chapters feel for him. Its great to have strong female characters too, which are missing in a lot of novels of this calibre. Not yet finished the book, but expect to be wowed.’
‘I only got this yesterday and I have to say I could not put it down!! Amazing concept and totally refreshing read. I’m already looking forward to the next Robert Turvil book.’
‘Other reviewers have commented about this book being difficult to put down, once you’ve been drawn into the story, and as I kept finding myself reading just one more chapter, I must agree with this. Initially, I felt for Ronald in his pain, but as the story progressed, this feeling changed and I began to view his trials and tribulations as pretty much what he deserved, given his opinionated views on self-importance and his scornful attitude towards others. The book is certainly thought provoking, as the author clearly intended, and the reader is rushed along on a roller coaster ride, towards the final inevitable question, which will leave you thinking about it, long after finishing the book.”
AUTHOR PROFILE: “I live in the South of England and have always had a love of books. I’m married and have three adult sons. When it comes to my own writing, I like to take tricky subjects and develop situations that sweep the whole gamut of emotions. I feel that reading should be a roller-coaster ride – but with a blindfold, so you can’t see what’s coming. My current book ‘The After Death Afterlife of Ronald Foster’ is a fantasy with a sting in the tail and has received 5* reviews. In the pipeline is a non-fiction book about how to manage difficult people and situations. This is (in part) based around my experiences of training literally thousands of people over more than 20 years. But then it will be back to fiction – and a story of vengeance!”
AUTHOR COMMENTS: “I really hope you enjoy ‘The After Death Afterlife of Ronald Foster’. As one reviewer commented: ‘It will leave you thinking about it, long after finishing the book.’”
