      Viewing the adult world through the eyes of a young boy, The Dead Fathers Club is a brilliant, quirky take on a classic tale. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Haig (The Last Family in England) creatively reanimates themes from Hamlet with an year-old British protagonist who is commissioned to avenge his father's murder.4/5(20). The Dead Fathers Club (Book): Haig, Matt: A ghost story with a twist a suspenseful and poignantly funny update of the Hamletstory Eleven-year-old Philip Noble has a big problem: His dad, who was killed in a car accident, appears as a bloodstained ghost at his own funeral and introduces Philip to the Dead Fathers Club. The club, whose members were all murdered, gathers outside the Castle and.

      The son, unlike the father, was not at all contented with the political situation in Germany at the time. Though the German Confederation was ostensibly a union of all the German peoples, it had from the beginning been dominated by it's two biggest members: the Kingdom of Prussia and the Austrian Empire. Literary influence is neatly reconfigured in the English author’s second novel (after The Last Family in England, ), in which an year-old schoolboy is commanded to seek revenge by the ghost of his murdered father. “Dad’s ghost” appears to Philip Noble, not on the battlements at Elsinore, but at the family-operated Castle and Falcon Pub, where mourners gather following his funeral.

    The Dead Fathers Club is an incredibly funny, imaginative, and quirky update of Hamlet that will appeal to fans of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and establish Matt Haig as a young writer of great talent. I say: The Dead Fathers Club is by far the most personal novel of the three I’ve written. "This book following the Pioneers as they settle the American West shows why history matters, and is a great gift for Father’s Day." 6. "Songs of America," by Jon Meacham and Tim McGraw, $19, Amazon.
