  • I don t read non fiction It s not another world I can escape to which is why I love to read , and it usually feels like I m reading a textbook in the end So when I picked up Funerals to Die For, I expected to learn a lot of interesting details, sure, but I also thought I would have to commit to finishing it and make an effort to accomplish my goal BOY WAS I WRONG Just try and put this book down after you start it It s humorous, and SO disturbingly interesting that if you are at all like me, you [...]


  • A good book for bathroom reading, this is a collection a very short, generally two page, blurbs on various factoids around death, dying, funerals, and related topics The writing seems like it comes straight from some kind of blog, or as filler stories written for a daily newspapers, and it appears there is a reason for that The articles, for lack of a better word, are peppered with mostly dumb jokes, and tidbits of interest, but not any real depth I take this book with a healthy dose of skeptici [...]


  • This book was recommended to me by a friend who enjoyed reading it and as a fan of Kathy s work on Cracked, I thought I might enjoy it as well It isn t my usual genre, but I decided to give it a read anyway Just looking at the cover, I felt it might be a bit morbid for my taste, but as I read the first few pages, I discovered that the facts are presented in a conversational manner which makes learning them far entertaining than if they were presented in a straight forward style I really enjoye [...]


  • DNFI was drawn to this book because of the title and also the topic The truth is many of the subjects mentioned are well known and the author just repeats the information I hated the writing style because it felt like I was reading one of those online articles that is for quick entertainment and not to be taken very serious.


  • I stumbled upon this book while doing research for a non fiction article I was writing Figuring that it might describe some obscure funeral customs that I could further research for my article, I gave it a shot.It didn t have anything related to my article, but it certainly was enjoyable The anecdote of British TV presenter Victoria Coren s run in with people who attend funerals of people they don t know just for free food and drink Google it , the story of record setting hearse processions deli [...]


  • Bought this on Kindle this morning Can t wait to read it The author works with a friend of mine If she has half as interesting as he is, this will be amazing



  • Chapter 1 The Hilarious History of Inhumation The Terracotta ArmyChapter 3 Not So Solemn Superlatives The Most Bitter Cemetery The Most Violent FuneralThat was pretty much the part I like about the book.It tried to cover almost every aspect of death, funeral and such but, fall short It feels like I ve read a click bait article with interesting title but, information that could be better watch on National Geographic Channel.


  • I wish the author was a bit objective and less focused on how weird and creepy different death rituals are and were For example, she writes About Victorian death photography in a way that s like well thank goodness we don t do that today But people do I ve noticed a growing trend in parents who have stillborns making pictures, foot casts, and in some cases even replica dolls of the deceased It certainly isn t anyone s place to judge I think as long as you find some sort of catharsis, do whateve [...]


  • I could not finish this book It gets old pretty quick and the formatting is horrible The call out quotes come right out of the adjacent text and don t add anything but repetition and interruption to the flow of reading Only the 7th book out of hundreds they I could not finish Just nothing compelling to waste of my time trudging through the remainder


  • This book is full of interesting facts on death told with a great sense of humor It is a must have for quirky conversation starters and random facts that you might want to hold onto


  • Engloba diferentes t picos, desde ritos ancestrales hasta lo m s tecnol gico Me hizo re r con ciertos comentarios y juegos de palabras, pero en otros pens te pasas Si qu te hace pensar en las distintas formas en que los humanos han despedido a sus seres queridos o no tan queridos a lo largo de la historia, condicionados por la geograf a, cultura y religi n, no hay una mejor que otra pues quien sabe y en el futuro lo que hacemos hoy con los funerales y entierros sean vistos como incomprensible.Si [...]


  • I only read to Post Mortem Photography before stopping The author called Victorians Goth Wannabes which is what made me stop Stereotyping Goths as death obsessed is very judgemental and very outdated There are many types of Goths yet here is an author who doesn t care and thinks they re the same I refuse to read a book by someone closed minded and judgemental.


  • I found the writing a bit dry, and most of the jokes fell a bit flat for me, but the factoids were undeniably fun and interesting It was an entertaining read, once I got through the first couple dozen pages.




  • It really was a good book, but I save 4 and 5 star ratings for life changing books I did love reading all the crazy stories in here The author writes a lot like how I sound so that was fun.


  • A fascinating look at all the different ways we, as a species, have handled death ever since we developed the cognitive skills to be freaked out by it.Benjamin approaches the subject with a sense of humor and, surprisingly, there is actually a lot of humor to be found in the many, many, many different ways we treat those have died or plan for how we ourselves want to be treated once we kick the bucket In fact, Benjamin perhaps makes a few too many jokes of her own, when she could have easily let [...]


  • Let s put the fun back in funeral 3.5 stars, rounded up This book was actually a lot of fun to read, but only in intervals Why Because the writing style or jokey nature of it all got a little formulaic And once that started to happen, I would set the book aside to read do something else It was interesting to read about other cultures and their traditions involving death, but there was a lot that I m not down for like eating the flesh or ashes of the dead person Barf However this quote about it m [...]


  • I ve been a fan of Cracked for a couple of years now, so when I realized that the author of one of the articles I enjoyed had written a book, I knew I had to read it And it didn t disappoint This book appeals to my sense of humor and to my morbid curiosity, so it s a win win It would have been better with a couple of photos, but never mind, that s what s Google is there for.Oh, and the descriptions aren t very graphic, so it shouldn t bother the most sensitive readers although if you are a sensi [...]


  • It was OK Not something worthy of a Pulitzer, but totally something I would see on an internet article from Cracked or the Huffington Post or the Thought Catalogue Anyway, there were some interesting facts in it but there were some misleading parts Like that part about the dog Booger s owner being a he when she s THE Joyce Mckinney, the woman who supposedly kidnapped a Mormon and chained him up for a sex filled weekend So yeah, it was OK in a way an almanac is or a magazine.


  • I absolutely adored this book It was absolutely amusing and riveting Some of the rituals and ideas in this book are unbelievable It is well written and comes in little exerts that allow for quick reading in between doing other things Still has a ton of enjoyment value though I loved it, and I highly recommend it for anyone with as quirky and morbid of a sense of humor as I do.


  • I enjoyed this quite a bit It is chock full of fun historical and current funeral practices The entries are quite short so they were easy to get through Just a taste of info with enough to go on if I wanted to search out information It also includes quotes from some of my favorite people It would have received 5 stars but, it did not have any pictures.


  • This is a really funny book about funeral practices the world around as well as all things funny related to funerals, hearses, obituaries, and the like I can really recommend this book It s also easy to read Each segment covers about 1 2 pages Lighthearted and written in good taste.


  • FunnyI really enjoyed this book It was full of interesting facts and I love the authors humor throughout the book.


  • A quick, fun read that will leave you with many great stories to tell on birthday parties That is, if you find someone who doesn t run away when you start mentioning corpses.
