From sky diving to online dating, Death is determined to try it all! Death Wins a Goldfish is an important reminder to the overstressed, overworked, and overwhelmed that everyone—even Death—deserves a break once in a while.

Quirky and Original
This was a delightfully weird, quick read. The whimsical tale follows Death as he tries to use up all his accumulated leave time - Human Resources insists! Along the way, he tries online dating, going to college, drinking and partying - and he gets a pet goldfish. Funny and kind of touching too.
