You really wouldn‘t expect this book to be so warm, funny and life-affirming, as the titular Eudora is planning to end her life at a Swiss clinic, but it certainly is.

I loved the supporting cast of characters; I often find a child‘S POV in a book to be grating, but I loved Rose in this. (And Stanley too!)

Like others, I loved the Pointless and Richard Osman references. I watch Pointless most days!

squirrelbrain @CarolynM - have you tried Richard Osman‘s House of Games? If you like Pointless, I‘m sure you‘d like that too. 4mo
Cinfhen Yay!!! I love seeing all the praise for Eudora 😁💕 4mo
Cinfhen Fabulous review 🙌🏻 4mo

charl08 Off to check the number of reserves on this at the library... 4mo
squirrelbrain It might beOK @charl08 (if they have it) as it‘s not a recent publication; @cinfhen raved about it and now we‘re all reading it and loving it! 🥰 4mo
TrishB Loved it too 👍🏻 4mo
CarolynM I have seen a few episodes of House of Games. I think it‘s a bit variable depending on who‘s on it (but maybe not as much as Richard Ayoade‘s Question Team😬) For something similar to, but different from Eudora, I loved this one on audio 4mo
squirrelbrain Yes, it does vary depending who‘s on (and what games they get that week) @CarolynM . That book sounds great but, at the moment, I can‘t find it anywhere. 🤷‍♀️ 4mo
CarolynM Hmm, it may not have got an international release yet. I‘ll look into it. 4mo
squirrelbrain It‘s not on Scribd, Libby, BorrowBox or even Amazon yet. @CarolynM 4mo
Caroline2 Oh another great review, stacked again! 😆 4mo

It‘s brave to begin a feel good story with an octogenarian contemplating the end of their life, but this book brings it off triumphantly. Sad in places, heartwarming in others, some laugh out loud moments (comparing a baby‘s birth to a the ball popping out of a rugby scrum 😳🤣) & some Richard Osman appreciation. Eudora, Rose & Stanley have been excellent company and I‘m sorry to be leaving them behind. Thanks for the rec Cindy - I loved it.

Freespirit It sounds great..I shall put it on my list!😊 5mo
Centique I loved the shout outs to Richard Osman too! 5mo
CarolynM @Freespirit It‘s lovely and the audio is excellent. Enjoy! 5mo

CarolynM @Centique But no love for Alexander Armstrong, which seems a bit mean☹️ 5mo
squirrelbrain Looking forward to getting to this one sometime soon! 5mo
Cinfhen I‘m so happy you enjoyed this one too, Carolyn!!! Wonderful review 🧡 5mo
Lindy This sounds so good I went to add it to my “for later” shelf on my public library‘s online catalogue… only to find I had already made a note of it. Maybe I heard about it from @Cinfhen ? 5mo
Cinfhen Maybe ?!? @Lindy it‘s just a sweet read believe it or not considering the topic / planned death ☠️ 5mo
LeahBergen This sounds lovely. 5mo
Centique @CarolynM oh! I don‘t know him but I just googled that is who is on Pointless. I‘ll have to try and find the show. I love a quiz ☺️ 5mo
CarolynM @Centique We watch it on YouTube. It‘s great🙂 5mo
Suet624 I need this book. 5mo

This is a book I needed to read, so thank you @Cinfhen for the recommendation 💕
Some of the plot is predictable and it almost felt too sweet in parts, but Lyons brings it back from the edge with her realistic portrayal of the vulnerabilities of ageing and her willingness to look at death and how society avoids addressing it. Eudora is fantastic; blunt, steadfast and with a heart of gold. It made me think and I certainly won‘t forget Eudora!

Cinfhen Yay!!! I loved Rose and Eudora 💕💕I‘m so glad it warmed your heart 5mo
Cinfhen I need to email you xxx happy to hear from u 😘 5mo
Centique @Cinfhen gosh it made me think more positively about old age and death - I really needed that! And sorry I took so long answering your email 💕😘 5mo
CarolynM ❤️❤️❤️ 5mo

This was a #blameitonlitsy I think @Cinfhen ? Anyway it is just lovely and very much what the doctor would have ordered for a couple of stress work weeks. Conical, honest and life affirming I loved Eudora and that is has a cross generational friendship with the fabulous Rose was icing on the cake

Cinfhen Yay!!! Im so glad you enjoyed this one!! Agreed…Rose was the perfect partner for Eudora 💖💖 5mo

Look what I‘m listening to @Cinfhen ! I wasn‘t sure at first (I‘m very easily put off when narrators do different voices) but I‘m hooked now at 20%. At the moment im loving reading books about elderly people and finding purpose in your later years - I wonder why!

Cinfhen Ohhh, yay!! Lovely photo 💜I really loved this book & I hope you will as well xxx 5mo
CarolynM Lovely photo 😍 I‘m also listening to this book on my morning walks thanks to @Cinfhen ‘s recommendation. It‘s a good one 👍🙂 5mo
