Ed Halliday

Author Ed Hallidayabout this book: Firstly I should point out that this is dark humour, so readers do need an imagination and a sense of humour when reading this book. I have long been intrigued, as we all are, about what happens when we finally die. All religions offer us alternative explanations, and here you are offered another, wrapped up in the story of Bernard Fish who wasn't supposed to know he was going to die. He is a very plain man who leads a very unremarkable life and finds death actually brings him more happiness and satisfaction than life ever could. We follow not only his demise and journey to the other side, but also the ripples caused by him knowing his fate. This fact has consequences not only for those he leaves behind but also for those who run the after life. It's whacky and a little off the wall, but heart warming and very very funny at the same time. And it's comforting to know that grim reapers are possibly not that grim after all!
