Publisher's Summary

The living dead are often thought to be exclusive to movies and dreams, but in this quick book you will see your nightmares come to life. Cotard's Syndrome is a very rare and mysterious illness in which the victim truly believes they are dead, and they certainly act the part. Several cases include a woman who believes she doesn't have a brain or stomach, a man who believes he's gone to Hell and can't leave, and an elderly lady who sleeps in a coffin. It may sound crazy, but these horrifying accounts are all true. This book dives into what the syndrome is, symptoms, how it occurs, and gives detailed examples of this strange yet intriguing delusional mental illness.

Who Knew?

What I was expecting was a short horror story. What I got was a short horror story that turns out to not be fictional. Never knew there was such a syndrome where people believe they are dead. I get the not knowing that other people don't exist or believing you are living in a simulation, but to think you are going around without body parts or could be dead, crazy. Definitely a neat short story to learn about other people's afflictions.

I really enjoy Kevin Theis's narration. I think he has a great sounding voice and does a great job of reading a factual account of an illness and making it enjoyable to listen to.
