Suicide by Death is the first book I’ve read by Mark Anthony Waters, a fiction novel based on true events. The story revolves around a pervasive societal mental illness―depression, drug abuse, self-mutilation, sexual abuse, despair, and suicide. These tough to swallow psychological issues plague Claire, the main character, who travels a road to self-destruction, leading to a path of self-discovery. From the moment Claire was born, her premature birth presaged a life fraught with struggles.

This is a novel, but it is a slice of the life of many in our society. Child molestation, by a parent, or a sibling, or a friend, a neighbor, or a stranger, is a devastating influence on the life of any child. Statistics say one in four women, and one in seven men have been molested. What statistics don't say is that the influence of that horror lasts a lifetime.

While the story line was relevant and interesting ... it progressed at a snail's pace. Being someone who is not a quitter ... I pushed on to the end and saw grammatical errors and words that had been completely omitted, etc. With some additional editing, this book could have received 4 stars.

My advice to all writers ... use a good editor and/or proofreader.
I currently have a contract to narriate this book and it's in production. I read the book first just so I can produce the book with the ending in mind. Can't wait to see how production goes. It's scheduled to be completed in September.

It started out really good....

It started out really good but then went the way of a fairy tale... It wasn't really believable. I was expecting a dark insightful comedy but seemed more fluff.

Interesting read about a very uncomfortable subject.

The book attempts to give you the reasons for taking of one's life and the heroic comeback from that fate. A nice story with a happy ending.

Thank you, Mark. One of these days I'll need an autographed copy of this one.

I understood Clair and learned a lot from her.

Suicide by death by Mark Anthony Waters

At some point in all our lives, I think we have probably all been guilty of saying: “I wish I was dead!” - although deep down, we didnt really mean it. Saying you want to end your life and actually doing it are two completely different things. A councillor friend of mine once said to me that some people consider suicide to be the cowards way out but unless you have been in a similar position, you have no idea how strong a person contemplating suicide needs
