Review: Nothing to Be Frightened Of

Nothing to Be Frightened Of
Nothing to Be Frightened Of by Julian Barnes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Julian Barnes’ reflections upon death, our fear of it (especially his), and past writers’ grappling with the same problem. It’s funny and honest and largely devoid of sentiment. Don’t expect any reassurances; he’s not offering any.
