I started reading How Not to Die Alone on 582019 and finished it on 5102019 This story being particularly depressing but I have to admit that I enjoyed reading it It’s different I have never thought about those people who live alone and die alone before I’m aware of people who live through life that either don’t get married or don’t have children and outlived their spouses but I always thought they may have cousins or live in nursing homes with caretakers Andrew’s job is interesting though it’s one job I can never ever perform I like being educated about this area of death and it opens my eyes to know that any job is possible and death can go undiscovered for so long if one lead such a lonely lifeThis book is told in the third person point of view following Andrew 42 an employee at the Death Administration department of public health His job is to find families next of kin and to inspect the houses of those who dies alone to find assets to cover their own funeral costs Andrew’s co workers think that he has a lawyer wife and two kids when he actually comes home from work to an empty house A mistake made during an interview 5 years ago became a full blown lie Andrew is a loner who likes to play with model trains and his only best friends are three other model trains enthusiasts on the internet forum His childhood was particularly depressing where his dad died when he was 3 his mom became withdrawn his older sister bullied and abandoned him and finally a secret that left him withdrawn into himself No one had ever come close to being friends with Andrew until a new employee Peggy joined his department She shadow him and go with him to inspect houses and attend funerals They got along well and he even comes out of his shell for her doing something he normally wouldn’t do like drinking beer on Wednesday shopping for new clothes etcHow Not to Die Alone is very well written and offer a uniue topic to think about Andrew’s life is a bit depressing as well as the topic of the story He grows up inside a bubble of comfort where he doesn’t socialize and anything outside of his comfort zone scares him His childhood is a sad one and it explains why his adulthood is no better I feel so happy when he finally made a friend and he started to develop feelings than just his mundane days There were some suspense moments that I thought he would give in to being bullied by his brother in law The people he works with are something else I like Peggy and her humor I like the happy ending I highly recommend everyone to read this bookPro lonely deaths odd job comfort zones friendship cover humorCon noneI rate it 5 starsDisclaimer I won a copy this book via Goodreads giveaway Please be assured that my opinions are honestxoxoJasmine at wwwhowusefulitiswordpresscom for details
