    Dark humoured way of looking at death. Very original and a pleasure to read. Oh but the dark of the humour! Topclass read. (Report) Reply

    What a dreadful voice over for the readings. Computerised, soul less - awful. Far better not to have it read out at all than ruined in this way. (Report) Reply

    Let me die a youngman's death
    not a free from sin tiptoe in
    candle wax and waning death
    not a curtains drawn by angels borne
    'what a nice way to go' death
