How did the narrator detract from the book?
I've been reading Caleb's blog for years and the best thing about his writing is his honest and true voice. Like your college buddy telling you what it's really like in his job. All the inside jokes, backstage humor and the real thoughts that go through his head. I have seen Caleb's pictures and watched his TED Talk. He's a regular guy. And this book is a very accurate picture of his life. It's a good story.
Then Why Oh Why does the producer of the audio book have to choose some low baritone slow talker for a narrator. That is not Caleb's voice. It's soooo stereotypical of the entertainment field to think that funeral people all talk in low, slow, hushed tones. We don't. We tell jokes and laugh and have fun just like everyone else. A younger, regular sounding narrator would have made the book so much better.

the authors anecdotes and views on death negativity are unlike anything I've ever read. I absolutely loved it
Really interesting book, fascinating insight into things we don’t nornKky get to learn about, and absolutely brilliant, almost poetic, writing. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed it. wonderful insights. to some extent, it helped me come to terms with my father's death. in addition to loss, death reminds us to actively remember our loved ones, and to identify and acknowledge the things they have given us - physical, biological, spiritual, psychological
