My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked this strange little story. It is told in the first person by the ghost of a woman who has pre-deceased her mother. She knows that her mother’s time has come, but wants to make her last days more comfortable than the Grim Reaper has in his mind. She does her best to persuade him to be gentle.
More than that I cannot say, as this is a short story and I am already in danger of telling it all. I haven’t given away more than you’ll find in the first couple of pages though.
It is an imaginative piece of writing, with a very faint flavor of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak about it. You’ll see what I mean if you read both.
It is slightly spoiled by the number of typos and tiny errors, which are a distraction, but I would recommend it as a quick read to any of my friends.
