Morbid, but in a good way!

I loved this book. I learned a bunch of new and gruesome facts about how, when and why some of the most famous people in history "Croaked". But..... in a GOOD way.
The author has a wicked sense of fun, and the narrator was PERFECT! Bravo, I can't wait till Ms. Bragg's next book.

Really enjoyed this book

This was enlightening about the lives and the time these famous people lived. The writer and narrator were good and kept my attention and focus. Though it deals with death it gives us an insight into these people's lives and I learned a lot from it.
