To Live, is to Die, and Then Live Again. . . This book is not about apocalypse. Nor is it about the invasion of aliens. In fact, it's not even fiction. Ben Tariri's Desexed takes you to a place, where you have never been, but always longed to be, a place, where the end is truly the beginning of something breathtakingly phenomenal. As you will see, we all relate to the concept of this book in one form or another. This book is about life, death, and afterlife, and about life again... This could happen, and when it does, we should be prepared. What if the end of the world came in in the form of this?!

Main Points
Writing Style:
The writing is okay. I found a few errors, and tense changes (it’s mostly in present but switches around strangely).
Plot:
It’s a really interesting and well-researched concept. This book is really only a brief snapshot of what would happen, but it seems to, you know, cover all the main points. In a way it’s kind of reassuring, like it’s just another possibility of what could happen when you die. However, some things were probably a little far-fetched or unrealistic. I don’t know. It was just how everyone changed after they had their sex genes removed. It all changed so drastically. I really don’t think the sex gene affects all of those things, but that’s just my opinion. We can’t really know. But it certainly sounds nicer without worrying about all that. It was really a utopia before people started dying off.
There was really only one point that made me want to say something. One of the first changes that occurs is when Scarlet, on Earth, decides to not put on makeup anymore because she used to wear it to be attractive to people. I was thinking that that’s not entirely the case, especially not wearing it just to attract males. I personally wear it because I’m vain and I want myself to look nice at all times, if only for me. I really just prefer looking at myself with makeup. But then again I can’t really be sure that’s subconsciously the case as well. Who knows?
It was interesting seeing so many people’s stories, even if I felt like they were kind of unnecessary. Death stories are always interesting and morbidly intriguing.
All in all, it was just a short little possibility.
