Book Review: Prime of Life by P.D. Bekendam

prime of life

The Synopsis:

“Ben thinks the retirement home where he works should be called “Heaven Can Wait a Little Longer While I golf” instead of Heritage Gardens. But who asked him? He’s just the janitor, after all. Of course, his inept boss, the cantankerous residents, and even his attractive podiatrist friend don’t know one important thing about him: he was recently a cardiothoracic surgeon, not a broom-pushing custodian.

Ben is in search of a stress-free life with a little freedom from the past thrown in. But will it be that simple to escape who he used to be–and all he used to fear?

An inspiring, quirky story from an award winning author, Prime of Life reminds us that new life can find us in the most unexpected places.

My Review:

This book was very, very funny! All of the characters were very likable and I enjoyed the storyline. The end is by no means predictable and its bitter-sweet. I liked the information about everything that was thrown in and enjoyed that it was written in first-person, so I knew only what Ben knew.

I don’t have anything negative to say other than the fact that there is an old man that is rather crass and tends to call people names (nothing horrible, after all, this is a Christian book), but he does it out of humor, so it is actually quite funny. But he does cuss a few times…

Again, this was a very humorous book, so, I will recommend it to anyone who likes to laugh and read at the same time!
