    Telegraph Obits are widely read. If you didn't know the dear departed before reading the Telegraph obituary you would wish that he, or she, had been your best buddy in life. Well researched, the life story is told with intimate revelations and very often with great humour. If you managed to appear in a Telegraph Obituary column, your life had been noted and you could really rest in peace. This is just one book of the 'Very Best' and it lives up to its name.

    My son introduced me to this book after a visit to England, and I bought it through Amazon. I love it. The reader will meet some of the most interesting, admirable, dispicable, but always entertaining characters possible. The entries are of a perfect length for brief and satisfying perusal.
