  1. This was a great listen, the book is very well written and has that style that of evokes a sense of time passing and life being lived. The text is almost sepia toned, but not in the negative way that term is often used…it takes you to times past, when the world was different.

    What I found most bitter sweet was how a man with such long and interesting life was almost seen as an inconvenience at the end. It was almost as if the funeral was a conclusion, something to be got out of the way.

    Although the paranormal element was the basis of the story I think it could have been told with or without it. Fred being a ghost is a dynamic, but it’s not really what the story is about.

    On the subject of ghosts I felt Fred had become a ghost long before his death, he was present in his families life, yet also a distant his presence felt, but not seen.

    Although not specifically something I would normally read, I want to find out more and Fred’s Funeral is something I would definitely come back to read.
