Quick read during the weekend. Second book for the series. Same plot feels old. And it seems a bit overstretch for a handful of people to take down the mafia boss, the MI5, and a local cartel at the same time. 2.5 out of 5.
The book “The Man Who Died Twice” is set in a retirement village and combines narrative tension and a fast-paced, complex plot with humor and naturalistic dialog. Although its tone is witty, the text addresses serious themes such as aging, mortality, friendship, and revenge. The story is told through dual narratives. Chapters alternate between the first-person diary entries of Joyce and a third-person narration covering multiple viewpoints.
