Overview

A great many things are dying very strangely all the time.

A gleaning of ungraceful exits into the arms of Grim Reaper, Strange Deaths sets out to prove that the ways we die are sometimes more strange than the ways we live. The deaths range from unseemly to ironic---and sometimes downright tragic. In this collection, you can find the stories of:

  • The golfer who was kicked to death by fellow golfers when his game was not up to par.
  • The serial rapist who died of shock when he discovered his latest victim-to-be was a transvestite.
  • The arsonist who boiled himself to death.
  • The woman who accidentally swallowed ants and followed up with a swig of insecticide---intending to kill the ants---and offed herself in the process.

Culled from newspaper reports around the globe, Strange Deaths is a catalog of catastrophes the likes of which you've never seen---and hopefully you'll never experience.

    strange is right

    I was amazed to see how bizarre death can be.Some of the stories brought tears to my eyes and laughter. I know that death is a sad thing. That utimatly someone lost a loved one, but the reality is that sometimes even death can be entertaining...I enjoyed it

    Good Read......

    This book is very, very morbid ( so just warning you ) but it's a very good and interesting read. Some of the stuff in here is just so gruesome, you're just like ' Oh my god, that's terrible! ' with one hand covering your mouth, out of complete shock, but on others, you're laughing so hard, that you have tears in your eyes. ( You know, like one of those things where, it's-not-really-funny-but-you-just-can't-help-it type of things.... like a nervous reaction type deal? ) It makes you think twice about not having any common sense on things, that's for sure. And by showing you just how ironic some deaths can be, that is what makes this book interesting.

    Very Cool!!!!!

    A couple of the stories in here are kind've stupid or don't make that much sense, but all the rest of them are HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!! I was skeptical at first, but after reading a few of the stories, I was hooked. And laughing so hard, my side hurt. My most favorite story in here is about the woman from Pakistan who took a Shakespearean approach to cannibalism. ( More about that later ). This sure as heck beats Jim Carrey, Comedy Central and all the late night shows and stand-up comedians COMBINED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is just as funny, if not funnier than all of the stupid superbowl commercials out there.
