"Once again, Radish celebrates women's inimitable friendships in an ode to sisterhood that will make her many fans rejoice." (Booklist)
I listened to 2 hours of the story before I gave up. Long winded descriptions which unbelievably kept repeating and repeating. The women in the story had different names but they all had the same thing to say again and again. Skip this book.
The concept was interesting, but it could have been done better in half the time or pages. I didn't finish it.
This is a great book, not only fun but also provides a lot of food for thought about friendship, priorities in life, life and death, celebration of life. At times, it seems frivolous but putting your mind into it and placing it into context then you can extract all possible meaning out of it. I really enjoyed listening to it, a great reader, by the way. this book is up there among my very favorites of all times. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
The book was for the most part enjoyable, although somewhat predictable and the ending was a little too convenient. Yet I found it mostly entertaining in spite of this, and the idea of a traveling funeral really appealed to me. I am making plans now for my own travelling funeral.
Anne's Traveling Funeral is about exporation of long term friendships and finding out about your self in the process.
I'm a very avid listener of audio books. There are also more reviews under 'Sarah' listed from when I was living in East Patchogue New York
I listened for two hours and couldn't go on. The story was so slow getting off the ground and the repetitive descriptions of the characters, their problems and their feelings was exhausting. It reads like molasses and while I like in depth information and description this was just heavy and dragged you down, If you don't have my attention in an hour then you've lost me. I would not recommend it. Wish I had my money back on this one!
