Review of ‘The Afterlife of Abdul’

Posted on Updated on

What happens when you die? Abdul, a young Londoner, is rushing on his motorbike over rain-soaked streets to meet his girlfriend, when a car appears in front of him, and he’s unable to avoid the collision. Jenny, a six-year-old girl, is in the backseat of the car. She and Abdul die in the crash. Although they’ve never met before, their souls connect when Azrael, the Angel of Death, comes to collect them.

The Afterlife of Abdul by Ayse Hafiza is a short story that explores the unknown realm of what happens after death. An interesting tale that bridges the gap between living and dying in a sympathetic way; a profound exploration of existence, and an entertaining read.

I give it four stars.
