Críticas:

Wide-ranging, sometimes zany and unpredictable, this is a compelling read. And however many twists Shriver shoves in, you always believe her.
The Times

Many people will like Lionel Shriver's ninth novel – admirers of gripping and clever contemporary fiction, discerning critics and, if there is any justice, literary prize committees.
Guardian

Shriver proves she is not afraid of anything...
Observer

It's a wonder that subject matter on the surface so bleak can be transformed into something so uplifting.
Daily Telegraph

Yes, a brilliantly funny cancer book! You can rely on Lionel Shriver to upend your expectations.
Daily Express

Required reading for all mortals.
Daily Mail

...witty, observant and beautifully controlled. British readers will close this excellent novel feeling grateful for the NHS.
Literary Review

...a visceral and deeply affecting story, a story about how illness affects people's relationships, and how their efforts to grapple with mortality reshape the arcs of their lives.
Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

Reseña del editor:

What do you pack for the rest of your life? The explosive new novel from the Orange Prize-winning author of We Need to Talk About Kevin

Shepherd Knacker has been saving all his working life for a one way ticket away from the daily grind. When he sells his handyman business for $1million, ‘The Afterlife’ seems tantalisingly within reach. Yet his wife has concocted one reason after another why now isn’t the time to go. Determined to take the plunge, Shep announces that he is leaving for an island off the coast of Tanzania: with or without her. However, Glynis has an announcement of her own – she needs his health insurance.

Illustrating how a marriage is both stressed and strengthened by medical crisis, So Much for That puts the uncomfortable fiscal question: how much is one life worth? Enlivened by Shriver’s signature acerbity and political outrage, it’s surely the funniest and most entertaining novel about illness and death one’s ever likely to read.
