I wanted to read this as soon as the book appeared in the audible.com inventory. "The Undertaking" attracted my attention as the subject is neither common nor comfortable for many. So I couldn't wait to jump right in.
Thomas Lynch is both a published poet and the director of a funeral home; perhaps an odd pairing of professions, but each job informs the other and stories of the living (as he cares for and buries the dead) flow poetically through this novel as the Huron River flows through his home town in Michigan. As Lynch anecdotally brings life to those his clients have left behind, the poetry within the prose is musical, nuanced, and sustaining.
Kevin T. Collins' performance makes a substantial contribution and I am not certain this book will impact readers in quite the same way as hearing it read with such sensitivity, emotion, and grace, and at times I could not tell if I was reading prose or poetry.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I like the way the author writes about the subject, (sort of (tongue in cheek ) for those who are uncomfortable with this subject!
Who was your favorite character and why?
THE AUTHOR, BECAUSE HE GETS THE INFORMATION ACROSS WITH HUMOR.
What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?
HIS HUMOR, I THINK HE PREFORMED EXACTLY THE WAY THE AUTHOR INTENDED FOR IT TO BE READ.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
HIS IDEAS ABOUT WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE ASHES AFTERWARDS. GREAT IDEAS!!!
Any additional comments?
I LOVED THE BOOK!!! 😉
