Book Review of Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral

Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral
reviewed Good idea, so-so execution on + 43 more book reviews

While the idea of getting a group of your girlfriends together with your ashes for the ultimate funereal road trip initially sounds intriguing and might get you to pick up this book, Kris Radish's treatment of the subject matter is disappointingly overblown, repetitive, and self-indulgent.

If you want a good cry, watch "Beaches" or "Terms of Endearment" instead. This book feels a little forced, like the author is trying to suck your tears into that hanky instead of relying on basic human emotion to let it happen.
