High price of burying theead or ever wondered how your loved ones are handled when they ie or simply stared at tombstones with morbid fascination then take a trip with Katherine Ramsland and learn about the booming industry and strange tales that surround cemeteries everywhe. This was a uick read As *A CHILD I GREW UP WITH * child I grew up with Old Graveyard Right old graveyard right the road from where I lived I think that is where the fascination began This book is good but I could have one without what sickening things people The Essential Good Food Guide do withead bodies I Textbook of Wisdom did find most of the book interesting andid find out things that I In Defence of Dogs didn t know Overall a good read but wouldn t pass it on as most people I know would find reading about sex with a corpse offensive Lots of interviews and urban legend not a lot of research orepth Mary Roach s STIFF is excellent though I picked up a copy of this book based on a negative review which claimed it was isgusting It s always an occasion when such reviews on the subject matter turn out to be true but absolutely to a large portion of the population this book would be uite isgusting I m part of a smaller percentage of the population who have no problem whatever with reading about The City in Mind decomposition embalming exploding corpses and leaking crypts In fact it was all good until I reached the section on necrophiliaThe act of sleeping with a corpse isn t whatisgusted me about the cases of necrophilia presented in this book it s the people themselves It was beyond pure sexual gratification for some I shouldn t go into Revenge (The Red Ledger detail but the idea that a person couldo what John No One Wants You did to the corpse of a woman She had arranged her funeral pre need she wasying of cancer so he The City Of Heavenly Tranquillity d met her and planned to sleep with her while she was still alive This man then would have consoled her family after what heid That is low It s tantamount to rape It bothered meNecrophiliacs aside Cemetery Stories Haunted Graveyards Embalming Secrets and the Life of a Corpse After Death is an interesting book It Penguins Poems for Life drags a little in the middleuring the section on ghost and urban legend related stores but that could have been ue to my familiarity with the subject matter It s also slightly patchy in parts it seems that the author had a little trouble going back and forward from facts and stories But over all I liked it All I can say is this is in my top ten of my very favorite books She goes across the country talking with morticians and their families and teaches in a very storytelling way about the history to now of the mortuary services This was very helpful for me when I wrote my first book I found this book enjoyable but it s very poorly written The organisation of the book is haphazard information is often repeated and topics that should be given at least 20 page chapters are summarised into paragraphs Although there are resources at the end of the book nothing in the text is cited and very few sources even ment. Never look at a grave the same way again Admit it You're fascinated by cemeteries We all ie and for most of us a cemetery is our final resting place But how many people really know what goes on inside around and beyond themEnter the world of the ead as Katherine Ramsland talks.
