Veronica Roth - Hearken

 

A lovely story about world were death is all around and many people have given up living. Darya is trained to hear the songs of life and death and must decide which to hear, the song of someone's life or their death.

 

I think I would choose death. It seems to me as if society today is so afraid of death and dying that they completely avoid dealing with it. I find death, at least most deaths, a beautiful experience, a transition to another place and state of being. I would love to hear someone's unique experience of that.
