really liked it

About the Book: This is a quick read, at only 46 pages, and it is three short stories involving characters from Mr. LePore's debut novel, A World I Never Made. In the introduction, Mr. LePore tell's us about writing his first novel and how, in order to keep the novel moving, as it is a thriller, he didn't want to bog the reader down with a lot of background information. In this book, Anyone Can Die, he brings back three of his main characters. He tells one story for each of them, that he feels gives them some of their characteristics and strengths that, as he puts it, cause them to "chose to live rather than die."

I liked Mr. LePore's writing style, and, even though the look into the character's lives are brief, it left me wanting more. You can read either one of these books first, but this reader is going to search down his novel so I can learn more about them.

James LePore Thank you, Krisiti. I loved writing these stories. It may sound odd, but after writing them I was finally able to let Megan, Pat and Max go. Something to do with closure, I guess, after living with them for so long. Jim LePore
