    Good grizzlyness

    Just what a teenage boy would love to read. I am ,however,a 65 year old woman who laughed and shuddered with each grizzly occurance. This would have been good fodder for the creators of"Six Feet Under."

    You should read it!

    This book is interesting for people who are curious and what to more about our world heroes.This book shows unique deaths and some you might of heard of.
    "How They Croaked" should be for People as young as about 10 years old.I also think that you could learn a lot from this book and would be a great source for a essay.
    This book is also humors and makes you keep reading.

    This book is very interesting. Even if you aren't a big fan of history this book makes it seem amazing! I love this book and my teacher gave me extra credit for bringing it to school and showing her. The book talks about a lot of quirks of history you would never find in a textbook. I love How They Croaked.

    Book Review Outline Book title and author: How They Croaked: The

    Book Review Outline
    Book title and author: How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous by Georgia Bragg, Kevin O'Malley
    Title of review:
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 5:5

    Introduction
    How They Croaked had me sitting on the edge of my seat (and occasionally cringing.) Frankly, I had a hard time putting it down!
    Description and summary of main points
    In “How They Croaked”, read all about the interesting (and somewhat gruesome) deaths of famous people throughout the centuries. Such as why doctors drilled a large hole into Beethoven’s stomach right after he finished his Op. 130 in B-flat or how doctors “treated” George Washington by draining close to eighty ounces of blood before he finally bit the dust.
    Evaluation
    I enjoyed reading “How They Croaked” very much. The only thing I would change about it is make it longer. Hopefully there will be another one… hint, hint.
    Conclusion
    Georgia Bragg will have you feeling like you’re actually there with amazing details. I couldn’t believe that I was actually learning while reading this! It was too good!
    Your final review
    I’d one hundred percent, without a doubt, give this five stars. I would recommend this to anybody (in fact, I have.) It’s really that good. Maybe my new favorite book.
