must listen several times

This is phenomenal. I enjoyed every crazy hilarious second of it and plan to relisten to it many times over. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did an exceptional job of bringing the characters and story to life. I highly recommend this book.

Death - a love story?

I loved this quirky story about the behind the scenes of death. Who knew it was in the book? The book had me laughing out loud - punch buggy, cowboy death, and many more. Ron Gabaldon, the narrator skillfully gave all the distinct characters their own voice. I’d say he brought the characters to life, but they were dead. Great book and great narration.

a great fun listen

Death gets a book is a funny short read. It has plenty of laugh out loud moments and a touch of weird to keep you interested. The narrorator does a great job bringing the characters to life. I look forward to reading/listening to more books from both the author and the narrorator.

Fun take on the Death Industrial Complex

I have to admit that, at first, I really did not enjoy the book...a horrible horrible naggy wife with a terrible shrill voice, and a husband that was just a wimp. Everything really grated on me. The story annoyed me, the narration annoyed me, the characters annoyed me. But as the story progressed, I began to see glimmers of hope. Oh...the horrible voice kinda fits. and as more characters are introduced, the narrator begins to shine. And so does the story. I found it pulling me in, and everything started to fit. By the end, I found that I had enjoyed it and wanted more. Some of the characters were wonderful...and I especially loved La Petite Mort and the accountant.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Weird and Hilarious


Death Gets a Book, written by Frank J Edler, is probably the weirdest book I've had the pleasure of listening to in a while. The story revolves around Vincent Death, the latest Grim Reaper to get recruited, after dying horribly at a genuine Tijuana donkey show. If you don't know what that is... well, engage "incognito" mode before Googling it.

What follows is a hilarious tale of life after death for long-suffering Vincent. He's trying his hardest to fit in with all the other Deaths... but his first day on the job is ruined by his banshee ex-wife, Wanda.

Edler does a great job keeping all the various Deaths separated. There are a lot of them, so keeping track of Death talking to Death could get confusing, but fortunately Tijuana Death, Cowboy Death, Midget Death, and my personal favorite La Petite Mort (the miniature French Death). La Petite Mort speaks with an exaggerated, stereotypical French accent and drives a monster truck powered by a flux capacitor. This guy needs a story all of his own.

Vincent, clad in his Black Tattered Robe (tm), invokes the wrath of his former wife banshee and inadvertently kicks off a revolution that could bring down all that the Deaths have worked hard for.

Narration by Ron Gabaldon was good, although his Irish accent left me cringing on behalf of an entire people. The rest of the production was solid, with no noticeable production issues

All up, a short and fun story about being dead.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I have not let this gift affect nor influence my opinions of this audiobook and have left an honest review.

Death, Death...Death

Never in the history of publication has the word death been used at such a high percentage of the total word count, not that there is anything wrong with that. DEATH GETS A BOOK is a very fun, quick listen that I plan to revisit again in the future.

Satisfying Deaths!

A fun story about love after death. A creative twist on some familiar tropes, with some genuine laugh out loud moments. The narration was excellent (loved the cowboy) and even the editing had some nice touches. Looking forward to more from both the author and the narrator! Highly recommend for a quick and very entertaining listen.

Very Different

One of the strangest books I've listened to, had a few sniggers along the way with Vincent and of course his long suffering wife who he's classed as a banshee. Very different one needs to listen to it to appreciate it and can be done in one sitting. Written by Frank J Edler new to me and narrated by Rob Gabaldon, in a good clear voice.

This was a very surprising story about death, friendship, revenge, and love.
The narrater was amazing. He brought Vincent and all the characters to life.
