If any agent reads this review, you would do well to grab Michelle as your client, because you will only be kicking yourself if you don't! Michelle Muto is destined to become a giant in this industry, if you don't believe me, then read "Don't Fear The Reaper," and you will know exactly what I'm talking about!
5 stars is not enough for this beautifully executed and brilliant work of literature.
So I'm breaking the rules and giving it infinity plus 1!
Don't Fear the Reaper is a dark story about the afterlife of a teen who commits suicide. It doesn't glorify suicide and not once is Keely happy with her decision. As a matter of fact, almost immediately she regrets doing what she did and wants to take it back. Even before she knows she is truly dead. It is definitely a book for older more mature teens. It delves into the grief of those left behind and the regret of the teen who took her own life, but it also does so much more than that.
To me, the main focus of Don't Fear the Reaper was undying love. Not only the love of Keely and her sister and the love that they both had for their parents but also the love that other characters shared and the ultimate sacrifices that many of them made. The book began with suicide and ended with hope and the journey that Michelle takes you on to get you there is unforgettable.
Michelle's characters have so much depth that you feel like you know them personally by the time you are through. Basically Keely is led through her short time left on Earth by her reaper, Banning and a demon, Daniel. Being a demon you would think that Daniel is the bad guy and in essence he is, but I always found something lovable about him. Maybe it was his sarcastic humor in the beginning. Regardless I think he may have been my favorite character. Banning was a fatherly figure for Keely and mostly the voice of reason, but not perfect.Read more ›
The characters are so awesome. I fell in love with Banning. You can really tell that he really cared for Keely and would have done anything to make her transition better. And when I found out when and why he decided to become a reaper, I loved him even more. Daniel. Oh, Daniel. So much to like about this demon. He is funny, witty and sarcastic. He really is the comedian in this story. I really wished I could have learned more on Daniel's past and why he became a demon, because really, I don't understand how he landed such a crappy job. Maybe we find out in a sequel? I really hope so!
This is one of those books that made me laugh and it made me cry. This was such a beautiful well-written story that is very powerful and thought provoking. Ms. Muto really has outdone herself with this novel. She has really captured the heartbreaking toll that suicide has on the family and friends that are left behind.
This one is suitable for all age groups. No sex, no romance, just a really good down-to-earth story that everyone should read!
