An Amazon Customer Review of Stairlift to Heaven –
‘It is a long time since I laughed out loud while reading.
I started reading this book, got to the part about Marilyn Monroe and nearly wet myself laughing. Got some very strange looks from my wife and was told that my kindle would be taken from me if I didn’t stop chuckling. I ended up having to put the book down because my sides were hurting so much.
