"Funny, moving. . . I defy anyone to finish this story without tears in their eyes."--Graeme Simsion, bestselling author of The Rosie Project "Why we're reading: We could all use a reminder to enjoy every moment." --Esquire.com "Depressing? No. Uplifting? Yes. Funny? Often. Although it's a countdown to death, this story is a celebration of life. Grab a doughnut and treat yourself to a good read." --Hudson Valley News "I loved the style of writing in this impressive book. Author Fausto Brizzi delivers and enjoyable tale which should be sad and depressing. I laughed throughout this tale. It is a wonderful novel that I hope everyone gets the opportunity to read. I loved it." --Open Book Society "100 Days of Happiness is a celebration of everyday life masquerading as a countdown to death. To read it is to realize that the child within us is still alive and well, ready to laugh, play, love unguardedly, and eat hot doughnuts."--Martha Woodroof, author of Small Blessings From the Hardcover edition.
