Kindle Singles are short, but this is like a half-single. Its humor is dependent on (1) constant, repetitive, and unnecessary profanity (seriously, could there not have been a warning?) and (2) bad analogies. Many people find those things funny. I don't, and it seems to me to be a lazy route to laughs. In the absence of humor, the single is left with the purposes of telling a journey to the brink of death and the lessens drawn from that experience. Noble purposes, but done better a thousand times elsewhere, and severely undermined by the base humor and language. The one star rating is genuine. I would not recommend this to anyone.
