The Man Who Died Twice (2021) Richard Osman (Thursday Murder Club)

The Man Who Died TwiceThis series is just fun,

After the adventures of the last book, Joyce has perhaps become a little bored.

“Do you think a dog might be good company?” asks Joyce. “I thought I might either get a dog or join Instagram.”

Ibrihim also has his own insights into how he has lived his life.

You silly old man, he thinks as he turns the key in the ignition, you made the biggest mistake of them all. You forgot to live,

And then Elizabeth’s ex-husband waltzes into the picture.

That twinkle in his eye was undimmed. The twinkle that gave an entirely undeserved suggestion of wisdom and charm. The twinkle that could make you walk down the aisle with a man almost ten years your junior and regret it within months. The twinkle you soon realize is actually the beam of a lighthouse, warning you off the rocks.

And Ron, is Ron.

He doesn’t know where Elizabeth got hold of the overalls, but boy were they comfortable. He wonders if he’s allowed to keep them. Wearing overalls every day would be a slippery slope, though. There’s a thin line between wearing overalls and going to the shop in your pajamas.

It’s fun and delightful and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
