Not as funny as it should be..

Book front cover

Title:
The Fowler Family Business
Author:
Jonathan Meades
ISBN:
1857029046
Rating:
3 out of 5 stars

Very strong black comedy emphasis but perhaps not quite enough of the comedic stuff. Some partly entertaining horrifying stuff around the funeral business, death more generally and blindness but still doesn’t quite deliver what it promises.

I also expect Meades to be much cleverer than this and more witty.
