Review by: Cristina Gutierrez on Aug. 02, 2016 :
This was an absolutely amazing book! I had a few bumps getting started, (personal issues prevented me from reading it at once), but once I got going I truly did not want to put it down. For American readers, like me, you will probably have to check a few words. I had no real problems with this and I have colorfully added to my vocabulary.
I was curious when I came across this book. I am acquainted with depression and suicide, (both attempts and, sadly, actual ones ). I know the devastation it leaves behind. Finding a good book that deals with suicide without being depressing, without judging and with compassion, humor and understanding, was, in my opinion, like finding a needle in a haystack. Apparently that is easier than I believed as here is that book. The author wrote eloquently on the subject of suicide, presenting the pain in a palatable manner. He used humor to ease it while he wrote much to think about. I became invested in the town and the people easily with this story that I never wanted to end.
The characters are very well written. They became alive for me. McSorely wasn't my favorite though, at the end of it, I did feel for him. I loved Gail and Buchan. Oddly, maybe, I was drawn to Moira and would love to know her more. I most certainly hope there will be a return to Moristoun. There are people that I became attached to. I want to visit them again. Sadly, I think there are many McSorelys in need of Buchan.
As to who I would recommend the book to. Sadly, I think the subject matter is one that, in some form, touches everyone. Therefore I would recommend it to anyone, late teens and up. For those who want to know yes, there is swearing. It is not overwhelming though, (at least not the swearing I know). I have come away with a bigger vocabulary that I will entertain family and friends with. My heritage is Scot so I think I will get away with it. There is also violence though not as graphic as a lot of books I read. The book does deal with the afterlife. For me, it gave me much to think about and discuss. I'm strong enough in my beliefs to handle examining them.
I would like to thank Booktasters on Twitter for bringing this book to me. I would like to thank the author who sent me an ecopy for review purposes. The review is based on my honest feelings of the book. I received no compensation for this review. Well, pleasure. I did get a lot of pleasure from it. Along with questions of if I was okay when I lost it reading in public. The part was just so good that I had to respond verbally to the character. I know you understand.
