  1. This is a very short book about with a lot to say about death, grieving and how we deal with both.And it is dark humor at it s absolute best.I am not generally a fan of dark humor, finding it to be nothing than an excuse for the macabre with meanness at it s core But this story takes it somewhere else entirely.Michael Larssen is widowed, his beloved wife having been electrocuted by her underwire bra I know,I know,bear with me A successful comic, he finds he is no longer funny and struggles to ma [...]


  2. Here is where Michael is located, the place at the edge of the map picturing dragons at the end of world His wife Jess has died by lightening strike to her underwire bra He is on an unlikely quest to find other people like him, seeking to make sense of a randowm death in their lives.What I like best about Michael is the way he loves women His first glance at Jess revealed a plain faced middle aged woman wearing an oversized sweater that hung on her like a sack , but she had the laugh of an angel [...]


  3. Quite the storyline Could have gone on longer meeting all 10 friends families and then ended in the same fashion But, I think I will take away forum the short story that it is rather than an extended version.Enjoyable read Awkward humor Recommended.


  4. I didn t know what to expect, given the premise, but found this short novel long story to be engaging and thought provoking not prize winning literature but just very good storytelling A fair amount of genuinely funny passages, and honestly human encounters Interesting characters, well presented, I wanted to see what they did, how they fared, and I was satisfied in the end Some of these shorts leave me shrugging, eh And forgetting all about them the next day This one stays with me.



  5. Losing a loved one certainly wouldn t be the first subject I d think of when writing a humorous piece, but sometimes you have to laugh at life and death I admire Hillary Jordan for taking it on and think she did a great job of executing it no pun intended.



  6. Can be read easily at a single sitting Involves the story of three people who lost loved ones in bizarre ways and how they interact and resolve their grief issues More humorous than philosophical.


  7. This is the story of Michael, a comedian, and his utter sense of desolation when his wife dies in a seemingly comedic way when she is electrocuted via the underwiring of her bra The story then goes on to tell of his journey to recovery via finding others who have lost their loved ones in seemingly funny ways bread worker kneaded to death when he fell in a bread making machine, so on.I liked reading this short story very much although not as much as I enjoyed When She Woke by the same author, alt [...]


  8. This was something of a gem in the Kindle Singles series.It tells a story of a successful comedian who stops seeing humour in the everyday after his wife dies in a freak accident electrocuted because of an under wired bra He goes on to meet other survivors of those killed by similar freak episodes, and on the way provides much food for thought on relationships, what humour is, and life in general.If that sounds deep, remember it s not too long, so never gets preachy, and just keeps you reading t [...]
