The man claims to be an angel named Matthew, and even though he gives Tyler enough evidence to convince him he's telling the truth, he doesn't know what to do with the information.
Tyler's underlying doubt and confusion about Matthew's prediction turn to anger, both at God and those around him. As he begins to exhibit destructive behavior, he befriends Ellis, an internationally known DJ. Tyler is scared that he really is about to die. He's scared for his sanity. He's scared that if he does die, he's not going to Heaven. He also soon becomes scared of Ellis, who is wild and opens up a door of temptation to Tyler.
As Tyler begins falling in a downward spiral of fear and confusion, he reaches out to a pastor he met, Will, and tries to right his wrongs with some of the important people in his life in a desperate attempt to find peace before his 40th birthday.
Though many fiction characters have faced the knowledge of their approaching deaths, Thrasher handles the subject with a fresh voice and approach. Tyler, despite his many flaws, is an appealing and relatable narrator. The story flows easily from one event to the next and at times Thrashers choice of words could be described as lyrical, which is appropriate when considering his main characters profession.
The novel 40 brings to mind the parable of the rich fool from Luke 12. In verse 20 God says to the man, "You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?" As Tyler Harrison faces the reality of this story, readers will be asking themselves what they would do in his place. Thrasher's 40 presents an engaging, thoughtful look at a man's last days. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys suspense novels or deep character development.
