A Long Way Down - Nick Hornby 2 1/2*

About a group (4) of strangers who meet on New Year's Eve on a London rooftop. They've gone up, individually, to commit suicide. This is the story of what happens after they meet that night and how they go on living.

I liked the different viewpoints. That said, I didn't like the characters very much and you really didn't get to know each one to where you might actually be sympathetic to them.

Liked the writing and there were some laugh out loud moments (be not too many). I could see the movie running through my head as I read.
