It sure takes her a long time to realize she's dead! Everyone else figured it out right away! Not really a flaw, but it annoyed me.

it seems like when I was reading the book, I came across some things that did not seem right... how ever.. I can not think of any right now. I would like to hear
what anyone else picked up on....

i thought it was weird that other couples who passed away at different ages met up and continued their relationship in elsewhere but that didn't happen with lizzie's boyfriend and his wife.

What is the point of life if you get do over, but if you don’t remember what you did wrong the first time (or is it your first time) then will you do better the next time. More of an observation than a flaw.

There was a huge lack of description needed in the book. Sometimes I wonder if that's the only reason it was fast paced, because there wasn't as much mumbo jumbo to read through. But the author did too much telling and not enough showing, and I created a picture of Elsewhere in my mind that I don't believe looked like the author's.

I wish the author had put more little facts about Elsewhere. She had spent so much time creating this world, that she should have but more thought into details.
Did you notice that they were eating tofu-turkey? It's because they can't eat meat without dead animals, she should have pointed that out because I don't think many people would pick that out.

agree about the fact Liz took so long to realise she was dead and lack of description on elsewhere. i also didnt liek the fact after Liz's 15 years are up she would never see her family ever again [and if she did she wouldnt remeber them]. it made me a little sad, because when you die people [atleast me] liek to expect somebody they know and waited for and loved. just the thought of never having my loved ones there even in death is too much :/

there was definitly a lack of description that i noticed, but that could be that the author just wasnt much of a describer, or that she wanted the book to be like a 15 year old was writing it.

a few other things too...

It wasn't that she took so long to realize she was dead, but that it took her so long to accept that she was dead. She was in denial.
