If ever one were to know when his time will be up, he'd got all the time to fix things up. But life itself can't give us that chance.

Excellent review! Thank you so much for such a professional written review. You convinced me, I must have the book and I have to read it. Sounds great!

Interesting review! about the science of when your time is up. A watch is an ideal device to alert you. "Final Notice" is a book that I would pass on reading. I think I might be sensitive to the proverbial discussion on gun ownership.

Can't imagine how the world will be if it really happened, a watch that can predict once life time of death?? The book sounds interesting nice one

I read the story of the book Final Notice Van Fleischer in the review of Sara Khan. This story is the prediction of death time of any person. The death of the person is indicated by a device made by a device.

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you mentioned that this book is leaning toward anti gun ownership. If it was pro gun, I don't think I would read it. I agree that the story is not far from reality especially with the smart gadgets being invented nowadays.

That was an interesting review. It sounds like it would be a good read. I happen to be in favor of gun ownership but I, like most gun rights people I know, I am not closed minded enough to refuse to listen to the other side of the issue. And my choice of reading is usually based on the storyline, not the politics involved. If we all agreed on everything, where would we find the fun of a heated debate?

The review gave me a good picture of the general nature of the book. I'm definitely interested. Some of the subplots sound particularly creative and intriguing.

The book is a fiction but very close to reality. Naturally, people get scared when death is mentioned. The book reminds the readers about the final days of a human's life. The elements of thrill in the book glue the reader to the book until the end of it. The reviewer did a good work.

Interesting review! I hope I would not receive such a "Final Notice" watch telling me my time is up. You have detailed us readers with enough information to not turn down reading this book. I did read the short story sometime before and was overwhelmed with the author realm and plot of this story. I will put this book on my to-read list.

This is one of those books that I have been wanting to read, then another book debuts.This does not mean that the author should be offended I just am a reader and reviewer who is easily enticed throw in coffee and a confection and that book might get read in one sitting. All joking aside, I think the author developed a unique storyline, that might be a reality not to far in the future.
The ability to plan for our final expenses, and experiences on a specific date and time brings a peace of mind never known before. For family and friends however the pain of loss can bring out feelings that under normal circumstances would never be exhibited by those individuals. The author has given us a lot to talk about a great book group offering.

It is a super suspension I have never experienced reading this book. I even forgot eating my breakfast and continued reading without getting tired . I want this book to be on my shelf. I want to read it again and again.
