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.

Cool job, shame about the over share

When focusing on the actual job this is fascinating and interesting read - 5* The author is a little odd, her ideas on relationships and the male/female role are bizarre and the way she states them as if this is everyone feels suggests a small world, a little patronising too others at times too which I hate to experience in any way which brought this down to 3*. But it is tolerable and the job is so interesting its worth reading up beware the let down of all the strange personal stuff she should have just kept to herself.
