Publisher's Summary

No one wants to die without having really lived

Andrew works with death for a living. Searching for people's next of kin and attending the funerals if they don't have anyone, he's desperate to avoid the same fate for himself. Which is fine, because he has the perfect wife and 2.4 children waiting at home for him after a long day. At least, that's what he's told people.

The truth is, his life isn't exactly as people think, and the little white lie he once told in the past is about to catch up with him.

Because in all Andrew's efforts to not die alone, he's forgotten one important thing: how to live. And maybe, it's about time for him to start.

Just couldn't get into this one

Absolutely struggled with this from the off... the narration was completely off key and broken ... I just couldn't get into it due to the reading. I will try reading the book in hard copy as the story and settings sound as though it should be entertaining, but that narration !! sorry

Not for me

The narrator is very irritating and I couldn't get passed chapter 5. Found the storyline dull, so not for me

Just lovely

This book was funny, thought provoking, romantic, gentle and quirky. I loved it and can’t wait to read some more of his work.
