    Unique Book

    This is one of the most unique books I have ever read. It is informative, interesting, amusing, and well written. You would have trouble believing some of the fantastic 'posthumous adventures famous corpses' that the author meticulously recounts, except that he provides a full bibliography so you can check the facts yourself. How about the Portugese lady who was exhumed five years after death to be crowned queen? Or Oliver Cromwell, who was exhumed from Westminster Abbey to be executed for treason (hung, then decapitated), and whose severed head became a museum exhibit and prop for lectures on phrenology? Or Daniel Boone, whose neglected body was hijacked from Missouri as part of a plan to promote a new cemetary in Kentucky? Mr. Murphy has apparently invented a new literary category that he calls 'Necrobiography,' of which his book is the only example so far. I can't wait for the sequel which he promises, especially if it is as enjoyable as the original. I heartily recommend this book. It is not morbid or sensational in the least, but holds your interest (tastefully illustrated too).
