Postcards from a Dead Girl
Sid works as a telemarketer at a travel agency. His life gets turned upside down when he starts receiving postcards from his girlfriend, Zoe. Sid receives about a dozen. The postcards range from Amsterdam to Paris. Zoe doesn’t say much on the postcards other than the standard “Have a good time, wish you were here”. So now you would wonder, how can postcards cause so much uproar? It is because Zoe is dead! What does Zoe want from Sid? Sid decides to follow the trail of postcards from all over Europe that Zoe visited.
This book had some witty moments. This book kind of reminded me of the movie, P.S., I Love You with the concept and funny times but Postcards from a Dead Girl was a little more on the black side of the humor versus the white side. Sid was definitely the star of this book. The kooky and craziness that followed Sid made for entertaining times. Though, I do have to admit that there was a few times where my mind would start to wander. Kirk Farber has a good talent as a story teller and writer. It showed in this book. I plan to check out his other books.
