This feels like a knock off version of The Girl on the Train - on a boat! Ugh. The mystery was pretty easy to figure out and the main character was an awful person, and not in a good or interesting way. Plus, none of the other people on the boat had ...more

I really enjoyed this look at how other cultures embrace, celebrate and process death and dying. The writing style is engaging and entertaining. I can't wait to read more by this author.

Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another What! You
“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Bill Bryson
“But that's the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don't want to know what people are talking about. I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can't read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can't even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”
Bill Bryson, Neither Here nor There: Travels in Europe

Terry Pratchett
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

Kristin Cashore
“Bacon improved things dramatically.”
Kristin Cashore, Bitterblue
