About this deal
So, my rating for this book? I honestly debated a 5-star review, but I am comfortable with a 4-4.5. For me to rate a book 5-stars, the ending has to just blow me away. While this ending was satisfying, it wrapped up just a little too…neatly, for my taste. That being said, there were so many things that I liked about this book. Of course, being that we are dealing with an afterlife, there are slight religious references (heaven and hell) though my heathen self didn’t feel like I was being beat over the head with someone else’s moral compass. This is actually very important to me when it comes to this type of book. After working in the catering industry Emmanuel-Jones enrolled on a training scheme that led to a job working for Peter Bazalgette on the BBC television series Food and Drink.

Why does diversity matter? “Nature tells us that if you don’t have diversity, the species will die off, become weaker. Keeping things to a very exclusive group will eventually lead to problems, that’s a lesson from nature. Diversity means you’re happy and open to new thinking, new ideas.”

Verbal and temporary leases are common, says Neith Grace Little, urban agriculture educator at the University of Maryland Extension in Baltimore. This can put urban farmers at a disadvantage, especially when developers show interest. Farmers can easily be forced to move, forfeiting years of investment.

A troublemaker at school due to my undiagnosed dyslexia, I left without any qualifications. But I didn’t let that stand in my way. After a brief and unsuccessful stint in the Parachute Regiment (I have a Dishonourable Discharge to my name) I trained as a chef and spent some time flipping burgers. But I had bigger ambitions. Unqualified but persistent, I talked my way into television, eventually becoming a producer/director for the BBC. I travelled the world making films about food and drink with the BBC Food & Drink programme and am credited with bringing many of the top celebrity chefs to the small screen including Gordon Ramsay, Antony Worrall-Thompson, Brian Turner and James Martin, before founding a food and drink marketing company in London.
