Mostly enjoyable read about a family coming together to sit shiva after the death of their father.

I enjoyed the book very much as an escape from my life and as a way to pass the time but I think the level of wacky hijinks push it into the realm of silly more than a serious exploration of the family relationships and resentments that face the Foxman clan.

I'll be sure to catch the movie when it comes to cable.

Well, I usually save reading reviews until after I've read the book, but I broke my rule on this book and read some reviews first. Most of them were negative, so I entered the story with great skepticism. I was surprisingly delighted by a story filled with honestly depicted truths about family, love, death, disappointment, losing and finding the way, and redemption. (And, as an afterthought, I must admit the ending was a little hokey. But that doesn't take away from the rest of the book.)

Purchased for my five-hour flight from LAX to HNL. Purchased whilst in long lines at security. Finished this morning as my body woke to West Coast time, a wee bit earlier than I needed to be up. This is the fastest adult fiction read I've had in a long time.

The plots unfolds like it was written for a Hollywood sell. Not necessarily a bad thing. But the words, the phrasing, the verbiage will be missed should it ever become a movie. Heavy emotional situations are balanced with humor and detached point of view--ha, my kind of story.… (més)

Nope. The entire thing just felt like that guy at the party who is trying so, so hard to be clever and funny.
