    I had been recommended this book by a friend of mine who was all praises for Michel Bruneau I would like to admit that I had never read any of Bruneau's works and I was looking forward to reading The Emancipating Death of a Boring Engineer Moreover what caught my attention was the title of the novel Another story on the lines of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman? A story on how death frees all from the bondage of life? Needless to say I was intrigued And by the time I finished reading the novel I realized this book is so much The author has given a rather captivating beginning to the story Keene Mason the engineer whom the title of the book refers to is already dead and he has left a very peculiar reuest as his last wish My casket shall be filled to the rim with 2005 Saint Emilion says the document which an irritated funeral director reads out to Mason's rather confused ex wife The outlandish reuest which also describes the method of filling the casket with the wine leaves even Mason's ex wife Carmina wondering about what she had missed that led to the transformation of the 'boring engineer' she knew to a seemingly insane person during her absence in his life for than a decade The narrator mentions at one point True eccentrics would have left to others the aggravation of dealing with how to execute their Daliesue last wishes But engineering and eccentricity aren't even close to being synonyms If not eccentric as evident from the final wish what was the `boring engineer'?The story grasped my attention from the first pages What a strange character I needed to know how he changed from being boring to weird So I follow the journey of Mason's ex wife who tries to unravel the mystery behind his transformation; unravelling facts about him each absurd than the previous Carmina meets his acuaintances all of whom are uniue and uirky The author has portrayed brilliant characterization and created a canvas of excellent plot and eually marvellous charactersThe story is a journey that is inspirational and captivating with various interesting perspectives on the ideas of life and death I would recommend The Emancipating Death of a Boring Engineer to everybody who wants to read something entertaining and worthwhile

    Current Reviews as of 1282012This is certainly one way to go out A love triangle of the strangest kind You might find yourself charmed by a so called boring engineer— ForeWord Reviews October 2012The title may be misleading the engineer in uestion is anything but boring Instead he is well read thoughtful poetic eccentric and dead The plot is held together by banter the addition of romantic interests and colorful characters and wit but the true gems of the book are found in the reflections of the engineer upon his own imminent death I liked reading the book because it made me feel clever about myself for getting it a little like Zen of Motorcycle Maintenance? but that's not to say this is a dry or philosophical book There is a lot going on and plenty for the average reader to enjoy— com Reviewer November 2012 Kindle EditionThe book does not disappoint and really picks up as it goes along Travel the world through the eyes of an ex engineer's wife as she unwillingly follows the directions of her deceased ex husband Along the way meet characters of all sorts whimsical satirical sexy and even borderline insane all whom expose the human condition under a different light and give new meaning to life and death The deceased ex husband feels very much alive throughout the book and the author finds a way to carry the reader through a gamut of emotions from laughing to I admit crying This was definitely an interesting and entertaining read— com Reviewer November 2012 Print EditionThe story grasped my attention from the first pages The author has portrayed brilliant characterization and created a canvas of excellent plot and eually marvellous characters— com Reviewer October 2012 Kindle Edition
