Interesting storyline. No drag-you-down drama or graphic brutality.
Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking and snarky dialogue.
'Until someone could present irrefutable empirical data on how being a ray of sunshine killed malignant cells and reversed cancer’s course, he’d continue to be the self-obsessed, sarcastic and irritable individual he’d come to know and love.'
“Don’t get me wrong –I love my kids. But there’s a reason why family therapists and pharmaceutical companies make a killing.”
I will re-read this book and look forward to other works by this author.
Levin has a voice all his own. He dares to touch on the macabre with humor and sensitivity that makes me wonder about his own health. He doesn’t hold back and he doesn’t try to manipulate the reader, which I greatly appreciate. In other words, he doesn’t ask that you weep for his troop of disease-laden characters. He paints the picture and lets the reader form their own opinions.
While the story-line is rather shocking, it doesn’t take long for you to not only root for the murdering protagonist, Gage Adder, but also want to donate your own pancreas to keep him going. His characters are relatable, multi-dimensional, and have a quirky way of killing time, but hell, I’d love to grab a beer with any one of them. There may be a huge death toll in Sick to Death, but Levin somehow manages to keep you laughing and cheering for the underdog with each and every page.
As with all of Levin’s books, the story keeps you moving, only pausing to ask yourself some very real questions about ethics and mortality. Great read, thoughtful and original!
