    "The book gets rather depressing, honestly but the more fun ending makes up for it. The town the people live in is boring and plain. The only thing that carries this book until a bit over the halfway point is the author's excellent use of dialogue."

    "As a fan of the TV show MASH, I've always wanted to learn more about the home state of the main character Hawkeye, Maine. With The Funeral Makers, I read a book that does its best to explain the landscape of northern Maine. While it does so, it doesn't do so very well, and doesn't embrace what it truly means to be in the state of Maine. "

    "I listened to the audio book version of this so I wouldn't be bored during my morning commute through a very rural area. Like many of the horror master Stephen King's novels, this was set in Maine, and has the creepy, eldritch atmosphere you'd expect. It's not as good as some of his classics, but it's still worth a read, or a listen."
