I had really high expectations from this book. I thought the premise was a great idea and I was disappointed to see it not come to fruition.

Ambrose Zephyr finds out he'll be dead in a month, give or take a few days, and decides to embark on an a-z list of places he's always wanted to go with his wife, Zipper.

Though the prose is beautifully written, the story was lacking. The places were obscure and the story telling was less than cheerful and forthcoming. There was a lot of going back and forth between the here and the past and it was hard to tell what had just happened and what had happened in a different life.

The author seemed to run out of ideas at I, and so the rest of the alphabet is a bit strange...not to mention missing letters.
