Book Review: How Not to Die Alone

My latest Book of the Month pick was a charmer. General plot: Andrew goes about his business, living a quiet life, a solitary life with virtually no friends or family, but it seems to suit him just fine. Only, due to a massive miscommunication, all of his coworkers think he has a busy, full life with his wife and two kids in a gorgeous London brownstone. He doesn’t mind pushing this lie along, growing and evolving his fake family, until he meets a coworker he’d like to form a real friendship with and his lies threaten to come to light.

This book reminded me a lot of A Man Called Ove and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. I absolutely adored those books and settled in quite nicely to this one. I found it to be an utterly satisfying novel and, just like with Eleanor, found myself wanting to hug Andrew.

4.5 out of 5 stars.
