    I just finished reading Passage, by Connie Willis. I thought it was very interesting, although very anti-Christian. This chick seems to be one of those "Christians are the source of all evil" people. But the book was very well-written, and had an interesting perspective about what happens when people are near death.

    It's about a psychologist and a neurologist who are researching near-death experiences. Due to lack of subjects, the psychologist, Joanna, agrees to go under. Her near-death experiences are full of imagery from the Titanic, and she is sure this means something.

    The characters are well-done, not too cliche. I don't want to give away the ending, but, to me, it was very interesting to see what someone (who is obviously not a Christian) thinks will happens when the body stops working.
