    Seemed promising when I picked it up & casually leafed through it, but did not stand up well to more thourough reading. A lot of the epitaths were what people "suggested" be put on their tombstone, not what was actually on there. I could suggest anything - Here lies the rotting remains of Jennifer who was driven mad by reading lousy books and threw herself in front of a bus. Except that I plan to be cremated & won't have a tombstone so I suppose the whole point is moot.

    This struck out to me, mostly because I just moved, "No matter who you are, you only get a little slice of the world. Have you ever seen a hearse followed by a U-Hual? - Billu Graham, Christian Evangelist

    This book is fun! It's a collection of epitaphs, death bed last words and thoughts, and farewells of famous and, some not well-known but memorable people. Some quotes are heart breaking, some inspirational, and some entertaining. All make this book interesting and amusing.

    Wonderful, fun little book full of fun tombstones and last words. "Drink to me," said Picasso. Great for reference.

    This book was OK, but (again) some of these I've read before, and while that doesn't detract from the book at all, it was kind of short for me. Nice to browse through, though.

    Book is in the shape of a tombstone, intriguing! Expected a little more of epitaphs.
