Shep Knacker has long saved for The Afterlife : an idyllic retreat to the Third World where his nest egg can last forever. Traffic jams on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway will be replaced with talking, thinking, seeing, and being and enough sleep. When he sells his business for a cool million dollars, his dream finally seems within reach. Yet his wife Glynis has concocted endless excuses why it's never the right time to go. Weary of working as a peon for the jerk who bought his company, Shep announces he's leaving for a Tanzanian island, with or without her.

Just returned from a doctor's appointment, Glynis has some news of her own: Shep can't go anywhere because she desperately needs his health insurance. But their policy only partially covers the staggering bills for her treatments, and Shep's nest egg for The Afterlife soon cracks under the strain.

So Much for That follows the profound transformation of a marriage, and Shriver delivers a compelling novel that presses the question: How much is one life worth?

    " I found it dragged a little in the middle, but really picked up after that to become a funny, thought provoking meditation not just on dying from cancer but the iniquities of ageing, how easy it is to be 'nice' instead of (rather than as well as) honest, & how doing the 'right' thing doesn't necessarily bring its own reward. I really fear that the NHS will be dismantled and replaced by something far worse. We must resist. "

    " There were aspects of this book that were too predictable, but really liked how it got you to think about different aspects of the U.S. Medical System. "

    " The writing was kind of dry. It was however, a lovely story and I really like the ending. "
