I don't read non-fiction. It's not another world I can escape to
I don't read non-fiction. It's not another world I can escape to (which is why I love to read), and it usually feels like I'm reading a textbook in the end. So when I picked up Funerals to Die For, I expected to learn a lot of interesting details, sure, but I also thought I would have to commit to finishing it, and make an effort to accomplish my goal.Was this review helpful?

BOY WAS I WRONG!
Just try and put this book down after you start it! It's humorous, and SO disturbingly interesting that if you are at all like me, you will find yourself saying, "Ewwww! Really?! NO!" and then you'll run to your computer, with your book still in hand, so that you can google Dargavs, Russia (the city of the dead) just to see what this unbelievably creepy town looks like, or what a bone chandelier in a small (creepy ass) church in Central Europe looks like. I pretty much read this book while either using my phone or my computer to simultaneously look up images of all these bizarre happenings!
This book was very easy to read because I was so engrossed that I would fly through chapters in the blink of an eye. I didn't feel like I was being "taught" (or that it was fact spewing), it was average-reader friendly, and funny as hell!!!
So if you would like to read about the vampiric pest problem in Europe in the Middle Ages, or about a man who was into marrying a really hairy woman, and then kept her on display after she died.....to then find ANOTHER really hairy woman to replace the dead wife with (I'm serious. this happened), or if you'd just like to know how to become a diamond after you die -- I've found the book for you!
