A parody of the confessional memoir served with deadpan wit, this is a deliciously blasphemous, completely uncensored celebrity expos that paints a portrait of Death as a misunderstood, surprisingly sympathetic demon.

I wasn't sure about this book at first. Chapter one was a bit gross, but I'm glad I kept reading. It was funny and entertaining, and makes Death seem surprisingly human. It was definitely a worthwhile read, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes their books with a side of twisted humor.

Yes, this book was full of cliches about death and good vs evil but so what. It was funny and different take about death. I laughed a lot and found it amusing and a funny, good read. It's not meant to be taken too seriously in the first place. Lighten up people. A similar author Christopher Moore is extremely funny and quite quirky and I like his stuff lot.

This book was too cutesy for me to finish. I was excited at the premise, its such an intersting concept for a fictional book and it could have gone so far. Sadly, it was more satire.

i look as death as a way of escaping to be free of all pain to which you are completely set free of ever earthly crap that all human can not see at the way that life is soooooooo presious and jesus did not die in vain and all who believe shall be in heaven for all eternaty AMEN
