Will I like it? Perhaps my standards are too high for preteens or perhaps he was just overwhlemed with grief, but that’s not my point.

Because in the end Uncle Alan is no longer with us. Given that it’s a take-off of Hamlet, I should have guessed it was going to be dark, but the jacket synopsis is very misleading. No comas, no quotes, barely any periods. I had been keen to read a Matt Haig book for a while, after hearing fantastic reviews of his other books.

It’s hard to review this without giving the whole story away, but I don’t want to start telling the whole story as I don’t want to ruin it for anyone else!

Country to calculate your shipping: I found this both effective and annoying, often several times within the same page.

There were some things that couldn’t be explained such as the guidance from his father when being chased, or when looking for Leah but then finding out about the natural death of Ray Ray Goodwin, and the real pub bashers were captured by the police.

Alan is left in a coma – does he live? His attempts at righteous payback are comically ridiculous, but he remains a very sad, frightened child who has lost his father, is losing his mother to his uncle’s courtship, and will probably lose his childhood along the way.

This is a reimagining of Hamlet, one of my favourite Shakespeare plays, and as well as reading a cracking and innovative interpretation, I had a lot of fun trying to spot my favourite characters.

Soon after, his Uncle Allan starts getting too close to Phillip’s mother, just when Phillip’s father’s ghost starts appearing before him, telling him he must kill his uncle, as he was the one who killed him. The Dead Father’s Club walks the line between the two possibilities, so maybe it’s a supernatural story, or maybe it’s just a truly sad tale about how childish beliefs can make a childhood tragedy far worse than an adult one.

Da Wikipedia, l’enciclopedia libera. This was a really nice read, and I must admit that I liked it more than some recent “serious” Shakespeare re-tellings. Haig didn’t follow conventional grammar rules and the lack of punctuation was sometimes confusing and definitely took a while to get us The Dead Father’s Club is populated by an eleven year old boy, his widowed mother, his uncle, various peers and several ghosts.

The writing didn’t break any new ground, but it was written with such truth about how life is day to day. I think there’s no reason to leave out punctuation, and it’s always going to be a star minus for me. I’m not sure who I would recommend this book to, but I would definitely look out for the author again.

An update on the Hamlet story, this reads much like “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime” I think that’s right with a yound narrator set to avenge his father’s death at the hands of his uncle.

Haig has several clever ways to incorporate Shakespeare into his modern story, and I found myself frequently smirking at those scenes. After experiencing years of anxiety ip panic attacks, these questions became urgent matters of life and death for Matt Haig. But you have to remember that the narrator is only eleven and so the way the story is told has to reflect this, and it does, very well.

Philip really does take it upon himself to avenge his father’s death, but he remains an eleven year old who is largely baffled by the adult world his mother and his conniving uncle inhabit, and is just as largely helpless against it. But ultimately that didn’t save pzdri.
