Some people live each day as if it were their last, embracing every possibility. What if today was your last day? Have you lived enough?
Barry never took chances. Today he tried. Katherine was out of his league: beautiful, kind, well-travelled. What would she ever see in him?
Successful in his line of work, but sadly lacking in every other aspect of life. On his last day, he got his wish to be with Katherine. Only, fate bestowed a bittersweet irony upon him, forcing him to watch as she was mistreated by the one person he hated the most.
Unbeknown to them both, Barry would leave a mark on Katherine’s life that would impact generations of her family yet to come.
A tale of death, love, life and hope. And a different perspective on all the ‘what ifs’ lies within…
‘What if today was your last day?’; this poignant question surrounds this novel and it is its theme and as I typed this just now, I felt a chill as it reminded me of the sheer glory that lies between the pages of Death Made Me. Death Made Me is an exceptional novel, and it is written by the superb Keeley Web. Keeley Webb is no doubt a talented author as the intriguing description of this book alone compelled me to pick this book up, and when I actually started to read this book, I felt compelled even more by its exceptional story which is incredibly brilliant.
Death Made Me is a novel with a unique premise. It follows the life and death of Barry, a man who has sadly died and is now a ghost that for some unknown reason, has to follow the love of his life and lost love, Katherine. The reader will follow Barry on his journey as a ghost as he follows Katherine; along the way, the reader will be granted access into the life of somebody who has died with regrets and this makes for poignant reading. Barry ponders his life and recognizes that he should have done a lot more when he was alive, such as declare his love for Katherine. Instead, he is left following her and witnessing horrible things that happen to her that in turn, haunts him.
Death Made Me is not only Barry’s story but instead, it is also Emily’s story, the daughter of Katherine who is gifted with psychic abilities. I adored the fact that this wonderful novel is split into two parts with two different characters. Multiple narrations in a story are my favorite reads, I always love this because the reader is able to experience the life and perspective of somebody new and that to me is a wonderful attribute in a novel, especially for one such as this!
Keeley Webb, the author of Death Made Me is an incredibly talented author who I adore so much. Her incredible book combined with themes of tragedy, love and even heartbreak makes Death Made Me a stellar read with a poetic feel. Webb’s writing wonderfully flows throughout her book so that Death Made Me is a brisk, endearing read. It may deal with hard-hitting themes but the hard-hitting themes are balanced out perfectly with themes of love; this alone shows us, readers, that Webb is a talent as she has struck the perfect balance.
As I am madly in love with Death Made Me, I have no choice but to award this sensational book a dazzling Five Stars! If you are a reader who adored supernatural stories with heart and a unique premise, then please, read this book as it is wonderful!
