How not to die alone by Richard Roper (aka Something to live for – UK)
BUG Rating: 3.5/5
Overall: Thought provoking, covering some important subjects such as loneliness. It’s actually incredibly sad. It’s really well written, with great depth of characters! It made me laugh a lot – the injections of humour were a great addition. Mainly delivered through the fantastic character of Andrew via the inner dialogues. It was quirky, I’d not read anything like this before. It was also interesting how it was inspired by the author’s similar job. I found it a bit slow paced, which is why I didn’t love it. Overall, it was an enjoyable read though!
Sometimes you have to risk everything to find your something…
All Andrew wants is to be normal. 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 his little white lie is about to catch up with him.
Because in all Andrew’s efforts to fit in, he’s forgotten one important thing: how to really live. And maybe, it’s about time for him to start.
