One condemned man requested 24 tacos, 6 enchiladas, and 6 tostadas. Another wanted wild rabbit, biscuits, and blackberry pie. And a two-time murderer asked for a can of SpaghettiOs then complained to the press when he didn't get it!

Newly revised and updated, the 10th Anniversary Edition of Last Suppers: Famous Final Meals from Death Row contains dozens of intriguing last meals ranging from succulent steak and lobster to the lump of dirt ordered by a former voodoo priest. But Last Suppers is more than just a list of meals; you'll also be treated to weird execution facts, prison recipes, and other tidbits of trivia from America's toughest cell blocks. Ever wondered how the last meal tradition began, or what the most popular entrees are among condemned diners? Curious about the lives and loves of capital punishment's fairer sex, the Death Row Dames? Are you craving a taste of Texas Jailhouse Chili, but don't have the recipe? Dying to know what Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, and other famous serial killers ate before their demise? Then pull up a chair, tuck in that bib, and enjoy!

This is a very funny look at the last suppers of various soon-to-be-ex death row inmates. The biting ascerbic comments, humerous asides and well documented death row 'nuggets of curiosity' keep me laughing for hours!

Great read and very funny. Highly recommend.

You have to have a dark sense of humor, but if you do, you'll really enjoy this book. There's plenty of info about the last meal tradition plus trivia about death row and prison life.

So, now I am pondering what I would have as a last meal. I wonder if I could have wild game. Not only did I enjoy reading this fun little book from cover to cover, I find myself going back to it and telling my friends about these people, their crimes..and what they choose as the last meal they will ever have. I plan to give both my daughters a copy for christmas.

A nice informative book about the last meal process with plenty of humor thrown in for good measure.

Not quite as good as the author's other book about death row, but still pretty darn funny and has tons of interesting information about the last meal process, along with detailed last meals from about 50 executed criminals.

Intetesting but also a little silly

While I found the dinner details and weird facts very interesting, I could do without the attempts at humor. I didn't think it was very funny and was more annoyed with these attempts than anything else. At least it was only $0.99.

Curiosity got the best of me after reading the tile. I expected the book to detail the final meals of death row inmates. It does this and much more. Some of their famous last words are detailed as well. It also contains some rather strange execution facts and prison recipes. The authors' attempt at humorous commentary merely annoyed me as I didn't find this book to be funny at all. Mocking tragic circumstances is in poor taste in my opinion.
