Publisher's Summary

Michelle Williams, an attractive young woman with close family ties and an active social life, describes her first extraordinary year in her unusual new job as a mortuary technician. It's a year in which, with innate good humour, she encounters death at its most tragic, bizarre, and hilarious. Her tale, neither gruesome nor sad, is enlivened by a range of colourful and eccentric characters, from pathologists and coroners to hospital porters and undertakers, giving us a glimpse of life - and death - that few of us will ever experience.

Mediocre at best

I find the author a little too patronising of her colleagues and "clients" if I'm honest. An interesting read/listen, but not well written.

The subject matter & title sounded fascinating and I listened to the preview but this book bored me so much I gave up on it before finishing it. I was not interested in the author's home life & did not think it added anything to the story. Added to that I thought it was badly written. I don't like to be harsh but I thought this was an awful, long winded & boring book.
