Read from August 31 to October 08, 2012

I finally finished Wendy Jones's "The Thoughts & Happenings of Wilfred Price, Purveyor of Superior Funerals", quite a mouthful of a title for what I thought was a very simple story (with a "twist" which I saw coming miles away!) dressed up in a lot of flowery writing.

I struggled with it. I liked the story and the settings and sympathised with the characters, especially young Wilfred, and the book is well written, but it's incredibly slow and I found myself skipping paragraphs if not pages (and in one instance a whole chapter!), filled with detailed descriptions and thoughts, to get back to the action.

Not a bad read, if you have patience.
