Yeah I am kind of morbid, but I’d wanted to read this one for awhile. I guess when you work in the funeral/cremation business, you have to keep a sense of humor. This book was surprisingly funny and an intriguiging look into an icredibly depressing business. What is always so impressive and compelling, when I read books and watch shows on the funeral business, is how much respect there is for the deceased. Always very reverent– whatever the family wants, the family gets.
A bit dry, but also very educating about past, present and history of death care– from clock urns to green cremation. Very interesting.
This brings my reading year to a close, though I do have a couple of books I’ve started. Tomorrow brings a brand new challenge…. I don’t know what to set my goal for, for 2012. Maybe I’ll push myself past 60 and go for 80?
