    At first, the style of writing in this book thew me completely and I just couldn't get into it at all. But something about the pure, and often brutal honesty, of the characters kept me hooked...and I'm very glad that it did as it rapidly turned into a really interesting read. There was a point in the book where I thought to myself "every character in this is vile" and I was surprised at the emotion Weldon managed to summon from me. It was a good, intriguing read that explored death in an honest yet spiritual way.

    Unlike Alice Sebold's use of the "Afterlife theme" in The Lovely Bones, Weldon's is both witty and wrenching. Here is a very well written, piercing, no-holds- barred exposure of human behavior at it's most reptilian. Don't read this if you warm and fuzzy.

    It's worth a read, but for me only the one.

    DNF. Her style didn't grab me on this occasion.
