Publisher's Summary

John's dead...but his biggest challenges have only just begun.

Hell has a problem. Two actually. The souls of Sandy Logan and Ian (Cher) Noble are missing and the fate of the Universe is at stake. John's deal to regain his life sounds easy. Until he discovers Sandy and Ian have both been reincarnated as pigeons and could be anywhere on Earth. What's more they died trying to stop the Prime Minister unleashing Emorfed on the unsuspecting public, a substance designed to remove human emotions.

John will have to travel to Hell and back, possess a sex addicted rock star, evade an agent with OCD who can't leave a room until he's shut the door three times, discover the secrets of the Limpet Syndrome, locate Sandy’s soul and bring down a government all before the summer solstice. In his pursuit to discover the truth of his own death, John is about to find out that death isn't the end; it's just the beginning of the end.

The Limpet Syndrome is Book 1 of "How to Survive the Afterlife" the hilarious fantasy series by Tony Moyle.

If you love books about reincarnation, corruption, the human condition, and talking pigeons then this is the audiobook for you. Ok you've never read/listened to a book like that before...here's your chance, get the weirdness today!

crass and uninteresting

The concept was really cute but every single character is a terrible person and all male. A third of the way into the book I finally came across two female one-off characters who had speaking lines and they existed primarily to talk about their tits. I couldn't finish it and I don't recommend anyone else read it.

No conclusion

This was a very strange book.
Not sure what the characters’ motivations were. The only really likable character was Nash. The journey of John was quite erratic and difficult to follow, and to top it all off - it came to no conclusion and ended as a “cliff hanger” to the next installment.

The narrator did a good job with it.

Very Amusing.....

Tony Moyle has written yet another witty and entertaining book which had me chuckling in amusement. Akin to Terry Pratchett, this book was entertaining and funny....

The narration was very good and easy to listen to.

I am taking a chance on self-published books and the one's I don't like l don't bother with a review but this and 'The End of the World is Nigh' we're great, hopefully soon l will get to more books by Tony Moyle.

Wow!!! Excellent Storyline and Great Narration!!!

If you are looking for a story like no other, that deserves ten plus stars; this is a must listen. You will find yourself absorbed into the storyline anxiously awaiting what comes next. You will laugh out loud one minute and find yourself shocked the next, all the while rooting for our hero "John" and those silly "pigeons!"

Thoroughly entertaining.

I reall enjoyed listening to this book. Very fun story, some interesting characters, and well read.
The story evolved enough along the way to keep me into the story and intrigued. There is a little bit of everything in this book. Funny, exciting, lightly weird, just a good time in general. Certainly interested in the next book
Aubry Parsons is now among my favorite narrators.

One of those stories I listen to over and over...

...and the listening experience gets richer every time. The voice and accent fit the story perfectly and make the book more enjoyable than just reading. The story and the dialog both keep fitting together better every time I listen. Each time through I appreciate more of the detail from the story.
My thanks to Tony and Aubrey for a job well done.

Engaging and Funny!

I received this book free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

When I first decided to listen to this book, I really wasn't sure I was going to like it. I am so glad I didn't let that stop me from listening all the way to the end. The author provides an intriguing perspective of what happens to your soul in the afterlife, and mixed it with the perfect amount of humor to "lighten" the mood of the story. The narrator was excellent and brought the characters to life, which enhanced my enjoyment of the book tremendously. I look forward to checking out more books from Moyle and Parsons!!

Enjoyable take on Post Life

This is a creative view of the afterlife and it's many trials and tribulations. Plenty of tounge in cheek comedy included. Really enjoyed it

Enjoyable

I liked this book... but not as much as I liked the previous book from Tony... felt a little let down by the ending. And the narrator had some very similar sounding characters... will I buy the next book... definitely.
