The Afterlife by Gary Soto

This novel The Afterlife by Gary Soto is a very interesting novel but it can sometimes be confusing. The book it’s about Chuy that he gets killed by someone in a club called Estrellas restroom.

Someone with some yellow shoes but the mystery goes on. At last he saw that people loved him and finds in himself compassion and bravery. You think a knife in the ribs would be the end of things but for Chuy that’s when his life gets interesting.

My experience of reading this book was about that he cared about his family and his best friends, “I saw that my mom and dad were crying” (43). He realized that he was important to his parents.

Soto’s style of writing is to make people want to read it because it talks about him and how he died sadly for no reason, “No let’s wait for my mom and dad to come back” (20). He wanted to see his mom and dad fo9r the last time. The type of reader who would like this book is someone who enjoys reading about someone that comes back to life. I recommend this book to all kids that like to read books that are mysterious and fun.
