I just could not get into this end-of-life story of Adam Godley whose family has gathered for his passing. They seem to be a bunch of dysfunctional types -- from 19 year old Petra who cuts to Adam Jr. struggling to maintain his marriage. Even the family dog gives his perspective of the group. To top it off Zeus, Pan and Hermes hover with their ethereal account of the whole affair. The story did have a bit of a redeeming ending when with child, Adam Junior’s wife feels the quickening of her fetus as the old man passes from his earthly realm.
