Nothing to Be Frightened Of - Julian Barnes I wouldn't have read this except that Dawn recommended (and loaned) it to me. The idea of prose/essay about death does not appeal.

But I enjoyed the book. It was thoughtful and witty and literary. It's also rambly, but our thoughts about death are rather rambly, aren't they? They can't be conclusive.

I would not have wanted to try to read it all at once. But I loved dipping into it periodically.
