5 Star IHIBRP Book Review: “Noah Finn & the Art of Suicide” by E. Rachael Hardcastle

A 28-Year-Old Suicidal Janitor Becomes A Catalyst For Redemption!

E. Rachael Hardcastle’s “Noah Finn & the Art of Suicide” captures the mind, heart, and soul from the very beginning. Noah, a 28-year-old janitor is just about to commit suicide while standing on the roof of the World Trade Center just as American Airlines Flight 11 plummets into the building. Suddenly, as he sits on a New York subway train, he’s greeted by a man who calls himself Christopher Saint. He tells Noah that he must learn 7 lessons to earn the right to choose his afterlife, and as Author Hardcastle so adeptly points out—and Albert Camus so wonderfully put it—“… in the end one needs more courage to live than to kill himself”.

“Noah Finn & the Art of Suicide” is just as much about life as it is about death. Hardcastle provides an expertly woven, complex plotline that results in a catharsis for both of her protagonists—Surprising, considering that one of them is a being we humans consider to be immortal, perfect, and stable.

Through Noah and Christopher, the author explains that, in everyday life, every action we take and every decision we make has a major impact on someone, sometime, somewhere. We see how the instruments of action and reaction are able to spark changes in this world and generate little epiphanies that benefit humankind as a whole. In the end, Noah and Christopher both teach us that we are each responsible for the destiny of the entire human race… and even a 28-year-old suicidal janitor can act as a catalyst for redemption.

Congratulations to the author on this IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Read!
