The narrator describes his religious journey quite skilfully. He in real terms is virtually dead and all his past occurrence that made him a past starts rewinding in front of his eyes which perhaps illustrates some known but unproven scientific theories. The book is full of Humor, grief, tragedy and Human behavior in addition there goes a huge suspense in the story which is quite sheenly maintained till the end. Its more of a brain thriller which will leave you dumbfound and the reader will enjoy every bit of it.

Winner of the Pulitzer prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life's work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker's brilliant and impassioned answer to the "why" of human existence.

In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates more than twenty years after its writing.
