Exit by Belinda Bauer

Kaceey’s Review:

A book about a group known as Exiteers. Of course, your first logical question is, what exactly is an Exiteer? Glad you asked!

A group of volunteers that passively assist someone who suffers from a terminal illness to leave this life. No laws broken. Well…until now!

Most important rule: Exiteers must not take an active roll. All previous arrangement are to be made by the person or their family, to have a tank of nitrous oxide present. The Exiteer simply sits beside to let the person know they are not alone… and of course to witness the passing..

Felix felt the calling to volunteer, to help those in the most dire of times. He’d witnessed many deaths, but today things didn’t go as planned. To say the least! Now he’s running from the police!

When I first started noticing reviews for this book I was fascinated by this most unusual premise and immediately hooked! I knew I had to read it and so glad I did!

The police assigned to the case brought even so much more depth to the investigation. In the words of DC Calvin Bridge, “Worst job ever!”

You’ll be laugh at the tulip caper…and cry with poor Felix and his solitude and frailties. I just loved Felix! All imaginable emotions are here. So if you’re searching for a book that will make you feel look no further!

My first read from this author but I have several of her books stashed on my shelf and can’t wait to dive into them.

Thank you to NetGalley, Grove Atlantic and Belinda Bauer for an ARC to read and review

  1. I have just reviewed this and I loved it too for many of the reasons you cite: loved Felix’s quiet humane dignity, and Bauer’s balance of pathos and humour was superb!

    I have read Snap and though this one was better, but really think I should pick up some more of hers now!

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed this one too! Can’t wait to read more of her books. Still trying to find time to fit Snap into my reading schedule!
