Just her. He planned to kill himself in 30 days. He met his new I loved this book. He met his new roommate, Frank, who brought LeRoy into the mix to try and get Steve out of his funk. Even though Steve was the main character, the author did a fabulous job of creating colorful characters. I ended up caring for everyone and loving their fun adventure. In fact, the dialogue and conversations were the favorite part of the book for me.
Even though Steve was the sad one, he seemed calmer and more mature than Frank and LeRoy.
Please Laugh at my Funeral by Kole McRae
They seemed more reckless, making me believe that there could be a twist of maybe Steve lives but Frank ends up dying. Or maybe even LeRoy. I hoped that the story would have a happy ending. I was really rooting for Steve to change his mind. Things started to look good—he met a girl named Nat. I jumped out of my seat when readers found out she was the body in the morgue. Poor Steve. He lost the girl of his dreams. His mom had died, and his brother had committed suicide.
Dead Man's Final Prank Leaves Everyone Laughing
One of his friends overdosed. No wonder he was giving up. Oct 20, Laura rated it liked it. I enjoyed the start of this book. The author's style is distinct and very different to what I usually read - it reminded me of Fear and Loathing, though it's a looooong time since I read that. I liked the non-fuck-giving of so many of his sentences: "lions, bears, and other cool animals".
Every sentence had this sense of can't-be-assed incompletion, and it worked. Then I got bored. And I got bored because it was all terribly cliche.
On top of that, it was like the author was torn between writing I enjoyed the start of this book. On top of that, it was like the author was torn between writing about a what would someone do if there were no consequences, b what would make someone feel alive, and c what gives meaning to life? The protagonist dabbles in all of the above--in fact the whole storyline is sort of a generalised dabble--but there's no profound moment, no realisation, no conclusion, no fulfilment. The character is this sort of unrelatable asshole, and in the worst possible of ways: if you're in a good mental state, you'll shrug at the book, you won't get much from it, and you won't recommend it; if you're in a bad mental state, it'll make any efforts toward clambering upward seem pointless, and the whole thing will only drive you deeper.
Without any spoilers, kudos to the author for the ending.
As I said, I enjoyed the author's non-fuck-giving style, but I'd like to see a more consistent book and one on a different, if more challenging, topic. View 1 comment.
