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!

True Crime Book Review - Kim Cantrell
What really makes this book enjoyable has to be the quirky commentary and wicked sense of humor from the authors. Sometimes I laughed so hard I thought I’d burst!

    A hilarious look at a not so funny subject

    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!

    Pondering

    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.

    Not all that funny

    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.

    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.

    Title Deceiving

    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.
