Gosh! Who knew corpses could be so fun and fascinating?! Mary Roach has gone to the end and back on topics you could not even imagine that deal with the dead. In one sentence, she writes on how the dead have improved the lives of the living. Seriously, we learn how greatful we should be that Aunt Cloe donated herself to the good of human kind when she passed on. If you're squeemish about death, Roach is completely disarming with her lively and comedic style. Nothing vulgar or horrifying here, just the simple truth with hilarious side commentary.
Loved this book! I've even read it at least three times now.
