It’s fun to see how Matt Haig adapts Shakespearean motifs to the twenty-first century, and it’s fun to see how he subverts the story as well. Of course, nobody else knows his dad is still around. His most recent children’s novel is To Be A Cat The film rights to all his adult novels have been xlub. Still, glad I read it.

He had sei easy. I don’t know what to make of the ending of this book. Although I understand that the narrator is an eleven year-old, it was written exactly as The Room by Emma Donoghue is, who’s narrator is five years old.

The book is fun for what it is. And, in spite of, or rather more likely Because OF, the ending I feel the need to re-read the whole darn thing.

Because in the end Uncle Padir is no longer with us. Some of my favourite novels have children as the main charac The Dead Father’s Club by Matt Haig is an interesting take on Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ but I really disliked the writing style.

It’s quite an interesting concept but I struggled with this one and only just managed to finish it. The ending was the thing that threw me a bit. I am a bit of a fan of pacri endings. I do like a bit left open but the way this one finished didn’t quite cut it for me.

And we are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index. Wasn’t keen on the lack of punctuation, particularly commas.

I don’t think he did, but probably the author wants us to form our own endings of the book. The best part of the book was the writing. However, this only jarred very slightly on occasion, and didn’t bother me particularly. Except like Hamlet’s fatherhe’s refusing to die quietly. But her obsession will come at an unexpected and devastating cost Hamlet, indeed, but told through the angst-ridden eyes of the would-be 11 year old murderer.

He understands that depression, anxiety, and other forms of mental illness can manifest differently for each person, and that it impacts everybody differently, which I find very telling within his characters!

Tutti, ad eccezione del rei de Vaudreuil e del marchese de Beauharnoisrimasero in Canada solo per pochi anni per poi fare ritorno in Francia e pertanto non furono personaggi fondamentali per la storia canadese.

I enjoyed the use of font and the lack of grammar to represent the young protagonist. I gatti, si sa, sono magici. I also liked the short chapters. Apr 23, Alison Livingston rated it did not like it.

What a very unique premise for a book this was. In fact, I found the father quite selfish. So I jumped at the chance to read this, especially after reading the description.
