How Not to Die Alone by Richard Roper

How I Read It: Print

Dates Read: 5/11/19-5/26/19

Happy Tuesday everybody! This book just didn’t keep my interest, so I found myself reading other books during the time it took me to read this one. With that being said, this isn’t a bad book, just not one that kept me with it.

This book follows Andrew, a member of the Council of London whose job is to figure out next of kin after someone passes (or at least to find money to pay for the funeral). A new woman, Peggy, comes to his office, and it is his job to teach her the ropes. Over time, he begins to realize that he is attracted to her. The problem? She thinks he is married with 2 kids, but he isn’t.

I just couldn’t keep myself in the book. It felt like it moved really slowly, and that the overall story itself just wasn’t moved along well. I think it could have been a really good idea for a story, it just could have been handled writing-style-wise a little better. (ooof, that was a really short one).

I would give this book 3.5 out of 5. If you guys have any thoughts or ideas, feel free to leave a comment, find me on the social medias at @elizabooksblog, or email me at And as always, I will see you all in the next book!
