Tragedy left him with unfinished business.
Now a disembodied spirit, Richard relives his most important days. From the beginnings of unconditional love, to the joy of his daughter’s birth, and all of the difficult times in between, each treasured moment brings him closer to answering the question:
“Why am I still here?”
He was born Richard Franchitti, but his friends call him Ricky. Welcome to his funeral.
I usually don't reread books. But this one is pretty fantastic.
I don't know if you know it, but there's a character named Jude. She was named after me. I can easily prove this by quoting a portion of it:
I have no doubt that Matt giggled like a little girl while writing that part. Because he was thinking of me.
Jokes aside, I really did love this book. It is fantastic. Matt Schiariti is a fabulous writer and I always enjoy his stuff. There's a reason I heckled the platypires into giving into my whims and reading this book. (Also, Ghosts of Demons Past. Also marvelous. Still waiting on the damn sequel.)
That being said, it was definitely better reading it this last time around. I already knew the characters, so I was able to pick up on things I hadn't before. It was much funnier this time around as well.
Still highly recommended.
