Harrison puts you in the middle of a family experiencing a death before and after the loved one dies. By the end of the book you feel that you are more or less, a member of the family. It's written as a first person narrative from 4 different people in the family. The two opposing themes are, "death is something every living thing has to deal with so how could it be that bad." and "death is the most brutal experience that humans have to learn to accept."
