    Missing some major details

    A harsh lesson in learning to respect the dead, the funeral parlor, and maybe above all, the effort that goes into a funerary floral arrangement. The lesson? A trip the bathroom can easily turn into a descent into hell. Pot heads, Pam and Kevin, show up to the funeral of her favorite uncle not only high, but also wearing t-shirts and jeans, a lack of respect which Pam’s mother makes perfectly clear, not only to Pam, but to everyone in the funeral parlor. Deciding to depart after a much-needed trip to the restroom, Pam stops to steal an orchid on the way. She is caught and berated by the funeral director’s grandson and redirected to use the restrooms located in the basement which is currently under construction. The story finds them trapped under the funeral parlor and the plot-line concentrates on their experiences in their efforts to escape. I had chosen this book hoping to have a horror novel to recommend as Halloween approaches. Unfortunately, while I might be able to recommend a revised version of this novel, I cannot recommend this book as it currently written. While I find Joyce Ward to be a talented writer whose work is easy to read and agree that it is easy to fall into the emotion and tone of this book, I am unforgiving when major details in the story-telling don’t add up. If the only issues had been a lighter type or person stumbling into and “bouncing off” a mound of dirt, I would still have recommended The Lesson.
