    "Amateur, at best"

    I usually prefer unabridged audiobooks, but I was ready for this one to be over with 30 minutes into it. The story line was belabored and the dialogue was just plain weak. The daddy was taking Viagara. We get it. Why is that such a shocking secret for an older man to be sexually active? Afterall, he was engaged! I heard the word "quagmire" twice, and neither in the appropriate context. Apparently riding in the "family car" at a funeral is important to some people. Seems like a stupid issue that was totally blown out of proportion. And about "laced coffee" and buying caskets wholesale to save money? Again, we get it! Trite phrases like "Even Stevie Wonder could see ..." made my eyes roll. This book just went on and on about details that should have been left out. The editor should be fired! Save your money, ladies, and find another book!

    "An EnjoyableRead"
    What did you like best about Sittin' in the Front Pew? What did you like least?

    I liked how the story was able to embed and draw you in to the story as though you were actually there. The characters are life-like The author did a good job of capturing the essence of grief and its aftermath on the family while bringing a sense of humor into the plot. Any family that has experienced the lost of a loved one will be able to relate to the story and how grief effects each family member differently creating complications. Overall, I enjoyed listening to the story line even though I thought the plot was somewhat predictable at times ( I was able to guess what was going to happen next).


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
