Funny!

This is an amazingly funny book. The crazy ways people can leave this world is expressed in this book as stories about there deaths. I almost did not buy this book because I thoght "Making A book about people doing stupid things, and then dieing? What horrible person would make a book about this" But soon I found out that Wendy Northcutt has found one of the funniest subjects in comedy. I didn't know that people would do such crazy and stupid things. Jason Harris also contributes to the laughs with his great narration of this book.
I will probobly read this book over and over again.

Good book, but...

Good stories, good narration, but extremely, extremely annoying clown music between chapters. No reason not to get it.
