really liked it

I started out not liking this book much, but loving it by the end- so much that I didn't want it to end! It is very heavy on the English brogue, and I think that made it hard for me to get into. Lots of the slang went over my head and I had a hard time figuring out who was related to who and what was going on........but after I figured everything out, the story was very enjoyable. I actually went back and read it again to enjoy the parts I had been confused about the first time around.

Ken is a cranky old man who has decided it is his time to die. He tries to mend some very broken relationships with his sons and ex-wife before he leaves this earth. The ensuing drama is humorous and entertaining.....
