I don't really know what to say about this book. I didn't like it. I didn't dislike it. I suspect that this is one of those books that seems innocuous and ephemeral when you read it, but it sticks in your mind. More so because the central theme that binds the book together is death. Regardless of how much we wish to we cannot escape the steady approach of our own death. I can only hope that books like this help prepare us for the sudden disappearance of the both the people around us, the people we love and care for, and ourselves.
This is a book that I'd recommend without quite knowing why.
