Sometimes you have to risk everything to find your something…
All Andrew wants is to be normal. He has the perfect wife and 2.4 children waiting at home for him after a long day. At least, that’s what he’s told people.
The truth is, his life isn’t exactly as people think and his little white lie is about to catch up with him.
Because in all Andrew’s efforts to fit in, he’s forgotten one important thing: how to really live. And maybe, it’s about time for him to start.
Not my usual sort of read this one but it was wonderful, insightfully emotional, with a main protagonist who you genuinely engage with and root for all the way through.
Andrew works for the council, sifting through the lives of those who have died alone. To his colleagues he seems to have a normal fulfilling life but the truth is somewhat more lonely…
Something to Live For does exactly what it says on the tin, taking you through one man’s journey towards living an actual life. It is funny and emotive, with some great characters and a lot of thought provoking human themes.
I was glued to the page hoping Andrew would find his way, this is life affirming and very very real.
Loved it. Recommended.
