Pushed and prodded by strange omens and stranger persons, he gradually learns that he was brought back by his one true love, Isabelle, because she is pregnant with their child-a child who, if raised correctly, will play a crucial role in saving the universe.But to be brought up right, he must be educated in part by his father. Specifically, he must be taught what Vincent learned on the other side-if only Vincent can remember it. On a father's love and struggle may depend the future of everything that is.By turns quirky, romantic, awesome, and irresistible, White Apples is a tale of love, fatherhood, death, and life that will leave you seeing the world with new eyes.… (mais)

A brilliant, thoughtful novel about life and death. ( )

What would you do if you wake up and you're dead?

You go about your normal day, until you start being confronted with more and more strange indications that you are in fact no longer living.

This story is a mindf*** I think it almost became a philosophical ride, but it dipped more into the supernatural to me, and I just don't know how to explain it.

If you like quiet stories that have just a few elements of "what was that?" this may be the book for you. ( )

Vincent Ettrich has just discovered that he's been resurrected. The worst part? He has no idea how he died. And now his mistress is telling him that she's carrying his child. Thus, White Apples begins. Throw in the fate of Order versus Chaos and you have this Jonathan Carroll novel.

This follows up on The Wooden Sea, though not in a directly obvious way. The themes that it carries are similar - chaos versus order, the way that the past changes who we are without us being able to change the past. The book, as most of Carroll's tend to, comes together beautifully in a startling climax at the end.

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Glass Soup and seeing what happens next. ( )

This was my first Jonathan Carroll novel, but I can confidently say that it won't be my last.

Vincent Ettrich is a serial womaniser, advertising executive and also recently dead. Except now he's not. He's been brought back by the love of his life for the sake of their unborn son. A son he knew nothing about. But he can't remember being dead, or why or how he's been brought back. And there are forces at work who want to keep him from ever raising that child.

The scope of imagination on display here is mind boggling. Carroll juggles ideas about the afterlife, the meaning of life, what we are here for and how our actions affect others, while keeping what is at heart a love story moving along at a nice pace.

This is part thriller, part existential treatise, part philosophical tract....and if that sound off-putting, it shouldn't. This is a wonderful book, full of life love and above all ideas. It will make you think, which is no bad thing.

I shall now go and work my way through Mr. Carroll's back catalogue. My only regret is that I didn't discover this author earlier!

Very highly recommended. ( )

Always a very subtle writer, Carroll quietly presents resolutions and revelations you could miss if you blink. I was impressed by the sureness of this particular structure; he uses no familiar genre tricks to maintain suspense, yet still communicates nail-biting concern for the wellbeing of his central characters and a terrible fear for the fate of the universe.
