    "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.
