Publisher's Summary

Dear Lucy Silchester,
You have an appointment for Monday 27th July 2011.
Yours sincerely,
Life.
Lucy Silchester has received an appointment card. Actually, she's been invited along a few times to this appointment, but she keeps brushing the gold-embossed envelope under the shag pile carpet. She's taken her eye off the ball and has busied herself with work (a job she doesn't love), helping out friends, fixing her car, feeding her cat, seeing her family, and devoting her time to their life dramas.
But Lucy is about to find out that this is one appointment that she can't miss. And she can't escape it, either. Her life is about to catch up with her in the most surreal of ways....

Absolute stunner

I've listened to this one three times and it's still one of my faves. The story is redemptive, different, charming and still very relatable. Lucy, the protagonist, is living a boring lifeless day-to-day until her literal Life, an actual person, orders an audit of her life to fix it. Both the main characters are so weirdly lovable and remain interesting. The reason this book is so good is that it sneakily gets you to examine your existence and wonder if your "Life" were to contact you, would it be happy? Would it want to change things about yourself? The narrator is also fantastic, except for how she pronounces the word "awkward" (ooork-werd?!)

Either way, this book is a goddamn delight and you WILL love it.
