I really did not like this book or the style that it was written in.I was actually just glad to finish it.I gave it a two star instead on a one star,because it at least had a somewhat happy ending Read an interesting and compelling black humor novel about a newspaper man who decides to kill himself because things are so boring and meaningless Some overtones of Miss Lonelyhearts Fast moving and a compelling read Hard to put down, really Not nearly as grim as the title and cover suggest it actually turns out to be funny Some readers say it has overtones of The Ginger Man by J.T Donleavy I recommend it especially to former newspaper men women who remember the grimy trade, and t Read an interesting and compelling black humor novel about a newspaper man who decides to kill himself because things are so boring and meaningless Some overtones of Miss Lonelyhearts Fast moving and a compelling read Hard to put down, really Not nearly as grim as the title and cover suggest it actually turns out to be funny Some readers say it has overtones of The Ginger Man by J.T Donleavy I recommend it especially to former newspaper men women who remember the grimy trade, and the weird mixture of physical and mental fatigue that can invade those condemned to be endlessly empathic on paper I love My Impending Death by Michael Laser, despite normally not enjoying suicidal comedy I hated the Elegance of the Hedgehog, for example The unlikable protagonist is a self absorbed overweight reporter writing sob stories while scorning the victims he portrays, but I still love this book When he decides to remove himself from his insignificant life, plots how and when, quits his encumbering commitments, and begins a countdown to the end, I find myself glued to the page Then, that certain I love My Impending Death by Michael Laser, despite normally not enjoying suicidal comedy I hated the Elegance of the Hedgehog, for example The unlikable protagonist is a self absorbed overweight reporter writing sob stories while scorning the victims he portrays, but I still love this book When he decides to remove himself from his insignificant life, plots how and when, quits his encumbering commitments, and begins a countdown to the end, I find myself glued to the page Then, that certain freedom of a certain destination intervenes, sending reader and protagonist twisting and turning instead of simply drowning in the water of life.Author Michael Laser s clean incisive writing turns pathos into dark humor with startling aplomb The world s polluted rivers become a surprising metaphor for life s ebb and flow, its darkness, and its hidden destination Soon, misanthropic, cynical Angus Trau might find his overweight body inclined to float instead of sinking down But a stubborn man must surely stick to the plan We re quite a pair aren t we he muses, trying to help the unhelpable She s going to die and doesn t want to I want to die, but must wait Meanwhile inner crocuses rashly spread their petals This is a tale where humor sets just the right pace, and is perfectly balanced by irony, determination and folly It s a tale where fate renders solemn prediction so evocative, mythical, and perfectly grounded And it s a tale where Angus Trau s bad timing is perfectly matched by the author s well tuned plot The soloist plays his melody in the symphony of community and honest, endearing humor overcomes the bleakness of the premise from first page to enthrallingly wonderful final word I love this book Disclosure I was given a free preview edition by the publisher Thought this was going to be a five Entertaining story and a narrative with wonderful wit.Examples I tried to fire back a blithe retort, but found the chamber empty Click Chubby cheeked, inscrutable, he nodded like a lightly tapped bobblehead, and left It somehow bogged down a bit toward the end, but still retained enough humor, compassion, sorrow and delight to be a good strong four.
