Review: The Suicide Shop by Jean Teaule

So a family that has been in the business of death for generations has a youngest child that refuses to see the dark side of life – all he sees is possibilities and sunshine, no matter how desperately his family tries to darken his outlook. While the premise is macabre, the endless methods of suicide are dealt with matter-of-factually, where one would expect this novel to be dark, it is not. It is a humorous look at death, but more importantly, it is a novel that illuminates the value and possibilities of life. Very much enjoyed it.
