5.0 out of 5 stars QI Book of the Dead - Alive with QI'ness!, 23 Dec. 2009
By 
This review is from: QI The Book of the Dead (Hardcover)
As a fan of QI, I've been fortunate to read many of the books and view the series. Although other reviewers have pointed out grammatical and typographical errors, I must say I was too fascinated by the content to notice them! In my endless search for trivia, rarely known facts and all round interestingness, for once, a book took me considerable time to read, whereas I normally fly through them. Why? I found this book so interesting I didn't want to put it down! What an insight into the lives of people we THINK we know/knew, proving yet again the outstanding research that all involved with the QI franchise do. It also shows that we should never assume anything; too many urban myths and legends are repeated today, and this book should also dispel some of those. We should learn more about noteables, yes, but we should learn the CORRECT information about them, which is why I found this book so fascinating. This is the sort of book that every trivia buff or person who regularly quotes "Did you know..." or for someone who just could do with a dose of interesting in their lives. Far from being dry and dull as many factoid type books can be, it actually had me chuckling or saying "Really??" out loud! Another outstanding effort from the QI Team. A QI Book of the Dead II, perhaps?
