Why doesn't Goodreads give you an option for a negative rating? If I could, this one would definitely get one. And I'm a generous rater! This book was so awful it actually made me feel a little ill. Life is a very short little book--the sort that a quick reader could finish in about an hour. It took me TWO WEEKS to read this book because it disgusted me so much that I'd have to put it down and come back to it later. Not only is it very poorly written, but the story is just bland and unbelievable.

I will say that the concept is kinda cool...I really like the excerpts written by others that are scattered throughout the book. But it is a bit suspicious...these other authors just happen to have the same 'voice' as Mr. Gunthridge. And the girlfriend? Who says that stuff?? Figments of a very hard-up mans imagination, I think. Oh, and the arrogance of this book...ugh. This was one book I was very glad to be done with!
