The Reaper appears differently to each one of them. Sometimes he's a friend or just someone they met along the road, sometimes a headmaster of a school but even if he seems to be gentle and nice he is basically asking them to answer to that one question we all are thinking about once in a while: If your house was on fire and you could only save one person, who would it be? A horrible question if you have to choose between your loved ones. Do you let your parents to die and save your grandparents? Or do you save your unfaithful lover and let your unborn baby to die?
Trades are being made and luck is rather questionable thing in this game. As game it is. The Reaper is a gambler and he is playing the Russian roulette with their lives...
I have to admit that I've always had a little crush on Grim Reaper and I've always loved stories about him. So when I came across with this story I was very excited and couldn't wait to read it. The writer didn't let me down.'t If you love suspension (and the Reaper), this is a must read. Garry Kay leads the reader smoothly into the possible victims lives, introducing them to the reader and making the game very personal. He's done an amazingly good job by lifting the curtain just enough so that the reader has to keep guessing who's gonna die and who's gonna live until the very end and when the story ends...well...you just hope there would be more pages to turn.
This is a fascinating tale of how Grim goes about his business, relying on a mixture of judgment and chance to determine who shall live and who shall die. Every passenger aboard the bus is confronted with their mortality, as well as the lives they have lived and the choices they have made.
Who will the Reaper spare, and who will he claim? Will the sleazy bus driver Spiros escape a well-deserved end? Who will little Sally choose to lose, her parents or grandparents? Can brave John Coyle free himself and finally fulfil his dreams of saving lives? And who is the mysterious bearded man whom Grim himself can't get a read on?
`Don't Fear the Reaper' by Garry Kay is a taut psychological thriller. As the reader gets to know the souls on the bus, we find ourselves musing upon our own mortality and our own lives and times, wondering if we've done enough with our time in this world to earn a little leniency from the man with the scythe. A five star read - catch it before you die!
Certainly, the story might not seem so 'grim', provided you take it as a metaphor. The really intriguing question is whether it has got a happy ending or not quite...Well, that is where the 'catch' lies, I suppose! That is where we should 'step in' and decide for ourselves!
Moreover, the thing I also enjoyed was the the actual setting, which was picturesque and happened to be not far away from my own geographic location.
Undoubtedly, I would recommend this book, especially to people who want to look at their lives from a more 'philosophical' viewpoint.
A small aircraft carrying the pilot and three passengers has plummeted and crashed through the roof. Everyone on board is injured as are you and anyone with you. The Grim Reaper arrives and announces that he has a quota to fill. He must take three lives. It's immaterial to him as to which three he will reap. He gives each of you an opportunity to defend yourselves, to explain why your live is more worthy of continuing.
What will you say? Quickly now. He's a busy reaper.
Gary Kay envisioned this scenario in his novel, Don't Fear The Reaper. In Gary's tale a tourist-filled bus crashes on a Greek island and balances atop a cliff. The Grim Reaper arrives with a quota of just 16 to fill. Who will he take? Why does he choose one person over another? How will the potential survivors defend themselves? How will they react if the Reaper offers them a choice: their life or that of a loved one?
Don't Fear the Reaper is a good story well told. The manuscript is free of typos and grammatical errors. There are heroes to cheer and villains to jeer. The Grim Reaper himself, and his family, are a delightful crew of mystery and mayhem.
Yes, I recommend this book highly.
The Grim Reaper is a softy with a sarcastic side, but still has to decide who lives and who dies.
This story was a magnifying glass, allowing the reader to meet some of the good, the not so good and the ugly souls masquerading as decent folks.
I loved the author's dry humor.
