Publisher's Summary

At the end of the day, Death visits everyone. Right before that, Charlie does.
You might meet him in a hospital, in a war zone, or at the scene of a traffic accident.
Then again, you might meet him at the North Pole - he gets everywhere, our Charlie.
Would you shake him by the hand, take the gift he offers, or would you pay no attention to the words he says?
Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a warning. He never knows which.
The End of the Day is the stunning new novel by Claire North, author of word-of-mouth best-seller The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

a hopeful story about the end

This is a hopeful story about the end, the end world, the end of life, and the end of ideas. it's hopeful message is one about the beauty and persistence of life even in the face of death. Skillfully told and narrated, the book is compelling, entertaining and thought-provoking.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this book as a masterpiece of literature and of superlative performance art. This book is a profoundly artistic eschatological statement that embodies and transcends human theocratic doctrine. Life is Death. Life is a summoning of Death. Death is an acknowledgement of Life, commingled, inseparable: a definition of life as an end to physical existence and inevitable renewal.

What other book might you compare The End of the Day to and why?

Claire North is a unique and incomparable literary voice. The best way to comprehend it is to hear it performed by Peter Kenny, who is arguably one of the top 10 most accomplished narrators I have heard after listening to more than 500 audio books. His emotional and intellectual comprehension and rendering of a multitude of foreign language accents is worthy of a prolonged standing ovation for the finest theatrical performance on any stage, or through any performance medium.

Which scene was your favorite?

The entire book is a interconnected single scene accented by the profoundly rhythmic literary style of the author: poetic drama comparable to a Shakespearean play.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Awe and Wonder.
