Spook, by Mary Roach

I will read any and every book this lady writes (this is the third for me). Far and few are such good-humored people in any sphere, and thank god she’s a writer. I had half a dozen serious chuckles reading this book and an amused smile from beginning to end.

Her deciding to tackle some of the more obvious subjects and proponents of an afterlife were a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. How could you not poke fun at these ‘tards. And while I know there is a heck of a lot more detail to be had on all of topics covered, I understand this isn’t meant to be an exhaustive study of people studying souls, astral bodies and life after death. This is ever-jolly Mary Roach having fun researching another goofy subject and we get to watch. And who could ever take issue with that?
