First rate novel about a man facing death

Any additional comments?

Don't be put off by the subject. It is about a man facing death but full of positive spirit and more about life than death. Other than the shocking beginning, the book is never depressing. I preferred Snow on Cedars, by the same author narrator pair, but this is still a fine novel and deserves 5 stars.
