A word of warning,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Do Not Open (Hardcover)
This is a very good book with a different approach the subjects covered are very varied. I bought this book for my 10yr old daughter who is very mature and a good reader, a word of warning, she found some of the content disturbing and had a few sleepless nights, in particular the "Lord Lucan" Murders,Jack the ripper, and Marilyn Monroe death. I did not look all through the book before christmas, but if I had I would probably have not bought the book, also human Spontaneous combustion was also a bit wierd for a 10yr old to take in. But most of the book was okay, I feel it should have a warning on the cover which would prapare the adult buying it.

I agree, the same happened to my son. He started having nightmares and fears of some things and for a while I couldn't understand the source of these fears which later were traced to this book. He's 11 and a boy, he loves the book but I had to take it away for now. I do feel that some of the material is inappropriate for children under 15-16.
