Top critical review
on 6 February 2014
Sorry to be the first to leave a slightly negative review but this book is just too miserable. The concept is great but it's full of dead people and dead pets. I bought this for my mum for Christmas because I think it is a great, great concept and I followed the Facebook group for ages before the book was created. However, the preamble written by the author ends with (I'm paraphrasing) "Make the most of these moments because before long you'll be gone." Jesus Christ. Meeeeerry Christmas. I had to think long and hard about whether to give this to my 60+ year old mum. In the end I did but she looked at about 2 pages and put it down. She probably got a dead parent and a dead child and decided it wasn't for her. Yes I'm sure the author receives more of this type of submission than any other but that doesn't mean the book needs to be filled with them.
