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.

at first, i wasn't sure but being someone who loves all things gore, i had to read it and i was super happy i did. all the people in these stories are all tied which makes the story cohesive and the authors humor takes a little away from the darkness of it and trust me, that humor is definitely needed. i may listen in again. 🤗
