Format: Hardcover
This is generally a very enjoyable collection of essays on a variety of fascinating topics relating to death, bodies and other morbid themes. I had fun, reading not in sequence, but dipping in and out, and choosing essays in a fairly random way. On the downside a few essays were poor: I wish their writers had focused more on communicating effectively what they were trying to say, rather than, as often was the case, getting bound up in semantics and definitions. But these were rare exceptions. Most essays were thoroughly entertaining, and enlightening. I particularly liked the various pieces about stuffed things, the 19th century Paris chapters, and various essays about Italy and the lingering culture of death.

HASH(0x9732a174) out of 5 stars A little more effort next time 3 Jun. 2014
By linda jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a gift still wrapped in its original mailer. All four corners were bent and there was a dent in the side of the spine. Also I noticed that the pages had not been properly flush during the binding process, they were crumpled which is now causing the front section of the book to pull away from the badly glued gutter.

Some of the photos were pixelated and the larger photos that had been printed across two consecutive pages and bisected by the gutter, some photos did not align properly. Bad printing or bad design?

I found many of the essays bogged down with a dry, thesis quality rather than just telling it like it is. At times, it was a bit over the top with the academic writing which ended up being dull and stilted. Considering the salacious nature of the topics listed in the book, it ended up being a bit of a yawnfest.

And finally, the Walter Potter section. Those kittens experienced unmitigated suffering when their bodies were held under water until they died an absolutely horrible death. Afterwards, their limp bodies were unceremoniously skinned, stuffed and put into cruel anthropomorphic representations of the human form strictly for the pure enjoyment of humans.
Humans can be so ugly. Especially those that condone Victorian animal abuse as an excuse for hipster irony.
