In this surprising, scary, entertaining audiobook, Kerr puts her expertise to the test. Not merely content to observe others' fear, she confronts it in the form of things like skydiving, paranormal investigations, and a visit to Japan's infamous "suicide forest." In her willingness to explore the world's scariest attractions, Kerr shows why we seek out terror even when there is plenty to fear in everyday life.

Really enjoyed the perfect balance between amusing anecdote, cited science and psycological/sociological observation. A must read for any true fan of the feeling of fear.

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

Although it had some beautiful imagery, it bored the hell out of me. I found myself skipping whole chapters once i got half way and seemingly not missing much. the pace was painfully slow and uneventful.

With her husband Bernard two years in the grave, seventy-nine-year-old Harriet Chance sets sail on an ill-conceived Alaskan cruise only to discover through a series of revelations that she's been living the past sixty years of her life under entirely false pretenses. There, amid the buffets and lounge singers, between the imagined appearance of her late husband and the very real arrival of her estranged daughter midway through the cruise, Harriet is forced to take a long look back, confronting the truth about pivotal events that changed the course of her life.

Completely Depressing....but good

I enjoy portraits and that's what this is, a portrait of a very typical, average elderly woman. The simple tale leaves you questioning the purpose of her existence and your own. I found Harriet to be quite endearing, as flawed as she may have been.
