Descripción del producto
Homes' dark delivery . . . is in full regalia here. . . . Laugh-outloud funny. (The Boston Globe)An absolute masterpiece . . . Homes writes ecstatically, and like no one else. (The Philadelphia Inquirer) I think this brave story of a lost man's reconnection with the world could become a generational touchstone, like Catch-22, The Monkey Wrench Gang, or The Catcher in the Rye. . . . And hey, maybe it will save somebody's life. (Stephen King) Hilarious . . . Homes writes in the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and has the talent to pull it off. (San Francisco Chronicle)

Richard Novak is distant and closed off from his family and friends. He's been floating through his work driven life until one day he simply can't ignore life anymore. His journey is both eye-opening and hilarious. This book is written from Richard's very unique perspective and might indeed save your life. I was so wrapped up in the story I actually didn't want it to end! I'll definitely reading more by this author in the future.
This Book Will Save Your Life seemed to me like a Bildungsroman in which the author forces the actions, motivations, and happenings to support her message. On some level, dare I say, that is bad writing. At one point, the morning after having read a good chunk, I even contemplated not finishing. I skipped ahead a little to see if things were going to get better. Not so, yet inexplicably, I was drawn in again, so much so that I went back to where I'd left off and continued to read the rest till late into the night. I wanted it to be over because I couldn't stop reading it. Weird. There's something there when a book makes a reader do that. So then why even 4 stars? That's why, I could't stop.
There's something that makes me not want to dismiss this book. So, reader, as far as I'm concerned, your on your own. In summary, you may or may not like this book.
Richard's organised and contained life is about to change. Through a series of somewhat strange and sometimes amusing events, Richard's life is turned around. I love that the characters in this story are flawed (a personal favourite of mine) and more real than any dreamlike macho superman type. I went on the journey with Richard which left me feeling great and optimistic that life can bring new pleasures when you are least expecting them.
