As someone who thinks about death quite a bit (check out my blog for other books about death, death culture, funeral practices, etc.) this book pinged on my radar instantly. The main character, Gilda, is so overwhelmed with the idea/concept/reality of dying that it utterly paralyzes her. She's consumed with ennui, beset by anxiety, and downtrodden by a deep depression. As a reader, you are trapped inside of Gilda's mind right along with her as she tries to figure out why she can't seem to get herself out of this perpetually dark pit of despair. But I don't want to paint this book as a bleak portrayal of a woman unraveling (although that is what it is at times) because the quagmires that Gilda gets into are hilarious in their absurdity. (Wait until you read about her new job.)

This book deals heavily with mental illness, identity, religion, and death. So if any of these topics are triggering for you please tread with caution (or just skip this one). ( )

To give a synopsis of Everyone In This Room Will Someday Be Dead by Emily Austin is to pretend that the book has an actual plot. What it has is the main character, Gilda, and her constant stream of consciousness about her depression, hypochondria, accident proneness, and just overall crazy. Gilda — a self-described lesbian atheist — somehow manages to get a job at a Catholic church where she replaces a woman who recently died. Although this is a novel about depression, grief, religion, and death, Austin writes with a wit and unusual sense of humor that at times is laugh-out-loud funny. To read Everyone In This Room is to be prepared for the inner dialogue of a twenty-something young woman struggling — although quite funnily — with finding her place in the world. ( )

Gilda is a young atheist lesbian, plagued by anxiety and obsessed with death so when she accidentally stumbles into a job with the Catholic Church, even she doesn't know how the heck she got here especially when she discovers the woman she is replacing, Grace, died recently. Still, she is determined to make the best of it by pretending to be a straight Catholic. As she struggles with family, trying to blend in with Church rituals which produce some of the funniest moments in the novel, the not-so-funny attitudes of the Church, the elderly parishioners, and her questions about Grace, Gilda begins to learn more about herself and the fact that everyone, even those who may seem unlikable or overly confident, are dealing with their own struggles the best they can.

Okay, I really loved Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead by Emily Austin that manages to be both heart-breaking and laugh-out-loud funny but always sympathetic. The characters are interesting and, if at first, they appear one-dimensional, Austin slowly fleshes them out, revealing enough of their backstories to make them seem alive. But I especially liked Gilda who, despite her constant obsession with death and the related hypochondria still manages to be one of the most likeable and dare I say relatable characters I have encountered in a very long time. Definitely a high recommendation for anyone who enjoys books infused with dark humour. This is Austin's debut novel and oh, what a debut it is - I can't wait to read more by her in the future.

Thanks to Netgalley and Atria Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review ( )

This book will not be for everyone - it manages to be both depressing and laugh out loud funny. There is a lot of talk about death and dying. Gilda is a very unique character - I think fans of Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine or The Rosie Project will appreciate the character and humor. And anyone who has been involved with the Catholic church will find atheist, lesbian Gilda's reaction to Catholic traditions and beliefs hilarious as she pretends to be a straight Catholic for her job. I would have liked a little more closure or information about what happened with Gilda's relationships with Father Jeff and Barney and even with her family. I really did enjoy this debut novel and look forward to reading more from Emily Austin. Thanks to NetGalley for the digital ARC. ( )
