Review - The End of the Alphabet


The End of the Alphabet

Do you like Amiee Bender's quirky plots? 
Do you like Raymond Carver's sparse writing style? 
Do you like Andrew Kaufman's novels? 
Do you like the alphabet? 

If you answered yes to more than one of the above questions then you will love CS Richardson's short novel, The End of the Alphabet. Ambrose Zephyr is obsessed with the alphabet. Around the the of his 50th birthday, he fails a medical. The doctor tells him he has only a month to live, give or take a few days. In the time that he has left, he decides to travel with his wife, Zipper Ashkenazi, to places he has always wanted to go, in strict alphabetical order. This book is quirky and charming and definitely not sickly. 

This is a great short novel and people who like the above authors will love this book.
