Waiting 'Round To Die by Chris Grant is a thought-provoking novel about one man’s quest to find the meaning of life. The story unravels in 2016 in Little Rock, and what follows seems like a series of random reminiscences of a man’s life journey, literally and figuratively. As a 45-year-old writer, he suddenly leaves his wife and daughter and goes on a trip that will take him to familiar places from his carefree days. Escaping from suburban life, he finds his dead uncle, a famous writer, who will accompany him on his trip. What follows is an adventure where they will be joined by long-dead American Civil War generals and a famous Navajo Indian. At the end of the novel, there is a list of places to stay and tips on where to eat and I found it very helpful indeed.
Chris Grant’s Waiting ‘Round to Die is a highly absorbing novel. Both humorous and philosophical, the theme is relevant and universal. The structure of the story, however, makes it a unique middle-aged coming-of-age novel. This is a story written with utmost sincerity and candor. And I would say this is an ambitious novel, stylistically and thematically. The events unravel at a brisk pace and the plot makes it a compelling read. The narrator’s frustrated monologues are so particular and evocative that the reader can’t help but empathize with him. This book should compel readers to also seek for themselves the real meaning of their existence!
